The World's Talking About: PornHub

PornHub (a website that hosts pornographic videos, according to a source familiar with the subject) unveiled its first offline campaign last week, only to have it removed 48 hours later. Nuri Gülver wrote the ad as part of a competition to become the site’s creative director. According to press reports, the ad was taken down after a complaint from the DoubleTree hotel that owns the building hosting the billboard. PornHub is now scouting other locations. The site has frequently shown more entrepreneurship than its rivals, running charity initiatives and launching its own record label, but society doesn’t seem ready to accept it into the mainstream.
