Let’s start this series with an actual Ad Porn (but actually clean). Pornhub’s ‘Wank-from-home’ ad for International Masturbation day, giving everyone a ‘friendly reminder’ that could be very helpful.

Don’t be a stranger! Check out another article from the #AdPorn series.

It hit several good advertising principles:

  • Relevancy: many people are working from home and on conference calls — immediately grabbing people’s attention.
  • Funny and memorable: people actually want to watch.
  • Provided helpful information: very helpful indeed.
  • Asked no one to buy: but the brand name will stick and it will be one of the first brands you remember when you want to buy.
  • Authenticity: it could happen.
