PornHub’s Christmas ad wants you to give premium subscriptions to your grandparents

Christmas, like the Super Bowl is becoming the time of year when companies and their advertising agencies try to outdo each other. This year PornHub has joined the party with its new video for its Premium gifting service.

In the advert a family is celebrating Christmas together, replete with festive sweaters and obligatory Polaroid pictures.

However, all is not well. Grandpa is sitting alone seemingly not enjoying the celebrations taking place in front of him. His grandson, clearly recognising grandpa’s 1,000-yard stare isn’t from his days in ‘Nam strolls over to offer him the gift of ad-free porn with faster playback and higher quality streaming.

Naturally a hug ensues and a single tear runs down his filthy granddad’s face.

“With the holidays upon us, we wanted to provide our community with the opportunity to give the most touching gift of all to their loved ones,” said Corey Price, vice president of Pornhub. ‘Touching’ being the operative word here.

According to Pornhub, the gift cards for are specially customizable, with the potential for personal messages to be added to the card. The cards can also be sent on the same day of purchase or at a future date.
