Pornhub Is Getting Into Wearable Tech With the Wankband. Yes, the Wankband You too can create 'dirty energy'

Pornhub is nothing if not savvy with its marketing, as seen in previous stunts like crowdsourcing a safe-for-work ad campaign and going big with a (short-lived) Times Square billboard. Now, the world's most mainstream porn site is getting into the hotness of the moment—wearable tech—with something called the Wankband. Yep, that's what it's called.

Who knows if it will ever be made—they say it's in beta testing, which they spell "beata testing." And they are collecting email addresses from people who might want to own it eventually. (I'm sure those addresses will be used for no other reasons.)

Here's the promo, which has well over 2 million YouTube views already:

And here's how Pornhub is pitching it.

At Pornhub, we're concerned about the amount of energy consumed by our users while enjoying the millions of hours of content we provide on our site. That's why we've decided to pitch in to help save the environment by creating a revolutionary wearable tech device.
