Pornhub makes a cheeky offer to buy Vine, says ‘six seconds is more than enough’

It seems like Pornhub thinks it’s a shame that Twitter is abandoning Vine. The porn website has made a cheeky offer to buy the video sharing platform.

Vine Android

R.I.P. Vine. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s sad about Twitter’s decision to axe Vine, a video entertainment network where you could find thousands of hilarious six-second videos as well as your daily dose of kittens and corgis. Well, it seems like Pornhub also thinks it’s a shame that Twitter is abandoning the video sharing service. In a letter shared with CNET, the VP of Pornhub Corey Price promises to “restore Vine to its NSFW glory.”

Although Price’s way of going about this potential deal is questionable to say the least, he nevertheless explains his rationale behind the offer: Twitter and its stakeholders could “benefit from a cash infusion from the sale of Vine,” and people’s all-time favorite Vine stars would live on. Okay, but this is where it gets a little bizarre. According to Pornhub, clips of porn “in six seconds is more than enough time for most people to enjoy themselves.”

So how will Pornhub’s altruistic vision of saving our favorite Vine gems pan out? Would it add six-second porn clips on top of the existing Vine videos? Would it run two different versions: one safe and one risqué? We will have to wait and see how Twitter will respond to this cheeky offer, but one thing is for sure. If the social network giant decides to sell Vine to Pornhub – which I seriously doubt it will – Vine’s founder won’t be too happy:

Don’t sell your company!

Twitter bought Vine back in 2012 when the video sharing platform was in its infancy, and since then, Vine has really been the foundation for all current video-centric apps like Snapchat. Twitter’s decision to close Vine is a shame as it is, but letting it become an adult website filled with six-second clips of naked men and women might be even more of a shame.
