'Porn Day' Prank Floods YouTube With Adult Videos

YouTube Flooded With Porn in 4chan Prank
4chan.org's /b/ message board is filled with pranksters who have nothing better to do with their time but make life difficult for everyone else. The notorious mischief-makers' most recent stunt -- Porn Day -- sent employees at YouTube scrambling as the site was flooded with XXX-rated content.

The videos were uploaded and attached to seemingly innocent search terms, like "Jonas Brothers." In order to get past YouTube's content filters, the filthy videos were prefaced with about 20-30 seconds of clean content, like a newscast or interview.

Google, which owns YouTube, was quick to pull the offending content, but it took hours for the videos and their offending thumbnails to disappear completely from search results.

According to Ars Technica, many of the pranksters also came from message boards at eBaum's World -- a site specializing in funny and viral videos -- but the site has disavowed any association with the prank.

YouTube is working diligently to erase all traces of Porn Day, but be careful what you (or your kids) search for over the next few days -- you might get an eyeful of something you would have rather not seen. [From: Ars Technica]

Are These Games Too Sexy?

    While recent game titles have attracted media attention for nudity and sexual situations, risque role-playing games have existed since PC gaming first began. Early games, such as 'Sex Games' for the Commodore 64, demanded specific commands, such as "remove pants," and required specific sequential actions to achieve one's nefarious goals. Currently, a plethora of games with bawdy scenes have invaded, or graced, the gaming world and vary in degrees of lewdness. Here are a few significant titles with prevalent or graphic bawdiness:

    'God of War I & II:'
    Press the right buttons, and gently twirl the thumbstick, to see the climax of mini-games in both God of War I and II for PS2 and PSP

    'Grand Theft Auto III (consoles)'
    The infamous "don't come a knockin'" prostitute scenes created a stir when GTA 3 was originally released for PS2.

    'Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude; Box Office or Bust' (for consoles):
    These most recent incarnations continue to follow the exploits of love lorn Larry in versions for both PC and next gen consoles

    'Leisure Suit Larry 3: Passionate in Pursuit of the Pulsating Pectorals' (for PC)
    Released in 1989 for PCs, this third installment of the groundbreaking franchise of risque role playing preceded GTA 4 by 20 years when the title character shows the full Larry in an infamous shower scene

    'Mass Effect:'
    The backlash from FoxNews greatly exaggerated the tame innuendo and implied relations between the two sapphic lovers in Xbox's Mass Effect.

    'Playboy: The Mansion' (consoles):
    Disappointingly demure, perhaps the highlight of this sojourn to the mansion is playing photographer in this release for PC, PS2 and Xbox

    'Rapelay:'
    Amazon removed listings for this disturbing, yet readily available in Japan, DVD-ROM in which the main character stalks and, to put it mildly, torments young girls.

    'The Sims;' nude patch:
    Denisons of young gamers were disappointed when learning that unblurred nudity in this game for PCs, consoles, and handhelds required downloading a censor patch

    'Soul Calibur' (consoles):
    The character Taki from the Soul Calibur franchise continues to titillate thousands of pubescent gamers in versions for every console.
