What it’s like to be Pornhub’s social media manager

TwitterFacebook

Managing a brand’s social media is tricky for anyone in 2019, and it’s even more challenging if you’re the social voice (and face) of Pornhub, the web’s most popular porn site. We spoke with Aria Nathaniel about the fine line she walks at the office each day.

Boasting a whopping 6 million followers on Instagram and 1.25 million on Twitter, Pornhub has amassed extensive reach on social media channels. By riffing on memes, trends, and current events — and interacting with readers —…

How dare you do this to Cypress Hill, Hollywood Walk of Fame

TwitterFacebook

West Coast hip-hop legends Cypress Hill finally made it to the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday — two days too early, in the minds of some.

The plaque was formally presented on Thursday, April 18, 2019. But everyone knows that Cypress Hill is synonymous with marijuana. Couldn’t whoever constructed the plaque have waited two days to present it on 4/20, the biggest marijuana holiday of the year?

Converse introduces trans-themed shoes for Pride and Twitter is happy for once

TwitterFacebook

Brands sometimes go too hard during Pride season. Every once in a while, however, they get it right.

The year 2019 has already brought us one *actually good* example. Converse recently introduced its LGBTQ Pride sneaker line, which now includes sneakers modeled after the Transgender Pride flag.

This is the first time Converse has ever had a trans-specific sneaker.

The trans-specific sneakers currently retail for $80….

Older dog loses his sh*t after meeting new puppy

TwitterFacebook

There is nothing more exciting in the world than getting a new puppy. Human babies are great, but puppies are … frankly a little better.

Take a look at how Twitter user @gillianrobles00‘s dog responded after her family got a puppy. 

This is peak joy. I’m not sure it’s possible for any animal, including humans, to be happier than this. I just downed five absolutely incredible fresh-out-of-the-box Krispy Kremes and…

Is it OK to be 420 friendly on main?

TwitterFacebook

It’s 4/20 baby!!! It’s Saturday, you’re lit, brain perfectly calibrated to toasted, sparking your joy, blowing smoke rings so on point it feels criminal not to share on your Instagram story.

But something stops you from posting. And it probably sounds like the voice of your D.A.R.E. teacher yelling about how posting pictures of pot online can get you arrested and ruin your career.

“Even if you just post one picture, it comes back,” said Anjela, who is very much not a D.A.R.E. teacher….

Score an entire suite of creative design apps for only $40

TwitterFacebook

We’re not about to make assumptions here, but we’d wager that the starving artist myth is partially perpetuated by the fact that design programs are so darn expensive. A subscription to a single app alone can sometimes require you to fork out hundreds of dollars you don’t have. We don’t know about you, but that’s plain robbery.

You don’t have to put yourself in the red just to score apps that will help you perform a variety of design jobs. The Corel Creative Mac Bundle includes an entire…

Leslie Jones and Seth Meyers watch the ‘Game of Thrones’ premiere and it’s delightful

TwitterFacebook

There are fewer things more delightful than Leslie Jones’ level of Game if Thrones super-fandom and now that the show is back, so are Jones’ amazing reactions to the twists and turns of Westeros. 

Just like she did for Season 7, Jones joined Seth Meyers for his Late Night bit “Game of Jones” in which the pair are filmed watching the show and, once again, Jones doesn’t disappoint. Within moments, she prompts Meyers to say, “Game of Thrones is confusing enough without you immediately…

Late-game fart wreaks havoc on Philadelphia 76ers bench

TwitterFacebook

The Philadelphia 76ers just learned that a high-pressure situation like the NBA Playoffs can cause the body to do weird things, like dropping stink bombs on the bench.

Midway through the fourth quarter of Thursday night’s game between the 76ers and the Brooklyn Nets, TNT’s camera cut to the bench for a glimpse of Philadelphia star Joel Embiid, who was out with a knee injury. But instead of finding Embiid and teammates deep in thought, the camera found a group of players reeling from what was…
