This Is Why The Pornhub Advert In Times Square Was Taken Down After Just 48 Hours

[Insert couldn't keep it up joke here.]

You may remember that earlier this year Pornhub launched a competition asking users of the porn site to come up with designs for a new advertising campaign.

Some were pretty funny and clever.

Anyway, a winner was eventually chosen and early on Monday morning a huge version of it was erected in New York's Times Square.

The reason it was taken down was initially unknown but Pornhub has now revealed to BuzzFeed News why the advert was removed so quickly.

A spokesman said the advert had been mounted on a building occupied by the Hilton DoubleTree hotel.

The reason it was taken down was due to complaints by the hotel's general manager.

"Our initial agreement with City Outdoor, the company that owns the billboard space, was that we had full approval for the ad to be placed in the initial location," the spokesman added.

"We are now currently in the process of evaluating various high traffic alternative locations in New York City and in other major metropolitan areas."

A BuzzFeed News investigation, in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, based on thousands of documents the government didn't want you to see.
