In what may be the greatest marketing idea in history, Pornhub, possibly the largest pornographic website, sent out branded snow plows to help out for free during the blizzard that was due to hit the east coast. Weather forecasters predicted 8-12 inches of snow in Boston on Tuesday, but few expected a porn site to cash in.

“The Pornhub team understands that by this time of year, most cities have run up their budget in snow removal,” said Pornhub Vice President Corey Price at the beginning of the week, “and we thought we’d lend a hand in getting our fans plowed.” Yes, the city’s plow truck drivers had a little extra assistance as the website rolled out a branded custom fleet of plow trucks to help out for free.

Each of the trucks, over two dozen of them, has the website’s logo on the plow and the doors for the service that is available in both Boston and New Jersey. The service began as soon as the snow began to fall and will last for the entire duration of the snowstorm, helping unfortunate commuters “get plowed” for no cost at all.

Not only are the vehicles there to assist the public, but they will also be available on demand to clear lots for small businesses, however, they are declining to plow driveways. All a small business needs to do to get a Pornhub snow plow to help out is send a request by email to phubplows@gmail.com.

Pornhub markets itself as being one of the world’s most “prolific adult websites,” boasting over 10 million registered users. Furthermore, they claim to average 92 billion video views a year, which equates to roughly 12.5 porn videos per person on earth, and now they can add close to 30 plow trucks to that rather impressive resumé.

This isn’t the first time Pornhub have attempted give back to the community, either. The website has an entire philanthropic sector entitled Pornhub Cares. In an attempt to support prostate and testicular cancer research, Pornhub Cares promoted their own Movember initiative last year, partnering with the official Movember foundation and matching them dollar for dollar. But this week it’s all about snow.
