Model XXX: PornHub Traffic Explodes With "Tesla" Searches After Musk's Smut-Inspired Tweets

We reported yesterday that a couple having sex inside of a Tesla Model X while it was on Autopilot inspired Elon Musk to make grade school-quality jokes on Twitter. But it’s not just Musk who’s reaping the benefits of the now-viral smut – it’s also proving to be beneficial to popular pornography website PornHub, which is seeing a massive surge in Tesla-related searches amid higher traffic, according to RT.

Footage of a couple having sex in a Tesla Model X started circulating on the website at the end of April, which inspired users to seek out similar videos. The popularity also inspired PornHub to put up an Instagram post, writing “Reporting you to Elon for not having two hands on the wheel with autopilot enabled.”

To which, Musk replied:

Shortly after, search volume on PornHub skyrocketed to over 3 million people in the course of just 10 days, with the “huge spike” occurring just after Musk’s tweet. The video itself has racked up 7.8 million views.

And despite Musk now facing a trial for his last sex-related tweet, he continues to joke about it.

It’s useful to know that all those 80 to 100 hour work weeks that Musk continually complains about are helping him to be productive. In the meantime, we can’t help but wonder: how many of those 7.8 million views came from a Fremont IP address?
