Pornhub offers 110 gallons of lube to Philadelphia

Pornhub offers 110 gallons of lube to the city of Philadelphia for its dry pole problem

The Philadelphia Police Department announced it won't grease up the city's light poles for the Super Bowl, so Pornhub is offering them 110 gallons of lube. 

Earlier this month, the city of Philadelphia decided to grease up some of the city's light poles with Crisco in an attempt to thwart any unruly sports fans from climbing up and inevitably injuring themselves following the NFC Championship game. 

 Apparently, the Crisco didn't work all that well — instead, it became a challenge for anyone daring to test their luck at the poles. Also, Crisco is flammable, so the whole thing posed a serious safety hazard.

“Unfortunately it became a thing ahead of time so people thought we were daring them to topple the grease,” Sgt. Eric Gripp, police spokesman, told (Yes, Gripp. You can't make this stuff up.) 

With the Super Bowl approaching, the police announced they would not continue with their lube job when the Philadelphia Eagles face off against the New England Patriots in the City of Brotherly Love this weekend.

They said they'd try something else instead, and while that alternative plan hasn't been revealed, Pornhub is offering the city two 55 gallon drums of lube for the occasion.

It's unclear whether the city will accept Pornhub's generous offer.

Surprisingly, this isn't the first time Pornhub has offered a city assistance on a municipal problem. Last year, the ever-vigilant company plowed the streets of Boston following a blizzard, helping to rescue people who were snowed in from the storm.
