Porn site offers Chad Ochocinco $69,000 to change name to Chad Seisnueve

Chad Ochocinco getting released by the New England Patriots on Thursday doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing for the wide receiver. In fact, he already had interesting offers rolling in.

In a correspondence obtained by BuzzFeed as well as reported by other sites, pornographic video sharing website Pornhub has offered the currently unemployed wide receiver $69,000 if he legally changed his name to Chad Seisnueve. Ha. Get it? Sixty-nine? Brilliant. And $69,000 as compensation? Bravo.

Note: technically, as anyone who has taken one year of Spanish is well-aware of, sixty-nine en Espanol is actually “sesenta y nueve,” but “ochocinco” isn’t how you say eighty-five, either, so no need to split hairs or get too picky here.

Text of the supposed correspondence from Corey Price, the VP of Marketing for Pornhub, follows below.


June 6, 2012

Dear Mr. Ochocinco,

I hope this letter finds you well. Our company, Pornhub.com, (the premier destination for online adult entertainment) would like to offer you an opportunity to solidify your support for the work we do here. Given your continued endorsement of our brand on your widely followed Twitter account, we feel it would only be appropriate to ask you, in the spirit of fun, to take your fandom for us to the next level.

In short, we would like to extend a proposal for you to legally change your name to Chad Seisnueve on the day of June 9, 2012 for the subsequent 24 hours. As proof, all we require from you is a twitpic of the approved name change registration form accompanied by a @Pornhub hashtag mention. We believe that this partnership can be beneficial to both parties.

In return for your cooperation and willingness, we will compensate you $69,000.

We truly appreciate your consideration of our offer and look forward to the possibility of working together soon. Meanwhile, please feel free to continue enjoying the fruits of our labor at Pornhub.com.

All the best,

Corey Price

I suppose it’s best to take a “wait and see” attitude to the legitimacy of the offer, but if true, it’s right up Ochocinco’s alley. He has mentioned the Pornhub site on more than one occasion on his extremely popular Twitter feed. Will he do it? Is it real? Hard to say, but something tells me that even if Ochocinco doesn’t play another down in the NFL, we’ll continue to hear about him.
