You can safely visit Cornhub, PornHub’s April Fools’ Day rebrand, but don’t click anything

I've been a bad, bad kernel.

Everyone’s favorite porn site has traded in massive, throbbing members for ginormous, buttery cob. Yes, cob. We meant to say that.

For its April Fools’ Day prank, PornHub has cooked itself into Cornhub, your go-to place for nasty corn videos. With titles like “Hot young corn gets plowed” and “Huge group of kernels takes buttery load,” your nether regions will be greasing up in no time.





Don’t fret if sultry veggies aren’t your kink. Clicking any of the titles on the Cornhub homepage will bring you to the familiar PornHub site with all of the typical banging and smanging.

Heads up, though: you won’t be able to get back to Cornhub after clicking through to the good ol’ porn. If you want to relish in the joke again, you’ll have to open up an incognito window or clear your cookies and revisit

The Cornhub idea isn’t exactly revolutionary. A photo of a corn stand called Cornhub has been floating around the Web for some time now. But thankfully Pornhub built off of that creative marketing idea and gave us a better version of the joke full of naughty niblets.

As for next year’s April Fools’ campaign, I’m hoping for Tornhub.
