Brazzers pull out of porn star Lisa Ann’s March Madness contest

It was fun while it lasted — or something — but adult site Brazzers has suddenly withdrawn its support a contest involving porn star Lisa Ann.

The original contest involved users uploading trick shots to social media with the hashtag #ballislisaann hashtag and tagged with the social media handles of both Lisa Ann and Brazzers.

The person with the video deemed the best would win a date with the porn actress. Said encounter with Lisa Ann revolved around a free trip to Indianapolis the national championship game on April 6, where the adult film star would join the victor. Airfare, hotel accommodations and tickets to the title game comprised the remaining balance of the winnings.

The contest was scheduled run until March 30 with the winner announced on April 2.

Sadly for fans of adult websites, Lisa Ann and trick shots (in basketball), Brazzers, while not explaining exactly why — “unforeseen circumstances” are cited — put an end to their sponsorship of the contest, although the contest will continue without Brazzers’ support.

The site made the announcement via statement (by way of Uproxx Sports):

BRAZZERS NO LONGER PART OF MARCH MADNESS GIVEAWAY

March 13th, 2015 – BRAZZERS.COM, the world’s premier adult entertainment site, regrets to inform fans that they are no longer hosting their March Madness giveaway.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, unfortunately BRAZZERS will no longer be part of the “Win a Date with Lisa Ann” contest in any way. The BRAZZERS team is so pleased with the amount of great submissions and encourages fans to continue to enter the contest, held solely by Lisa Ann herself. Following the news, with Ann’s love for her fans, her immediate response was to still make this possible. She says, “As everything I do and have done in the business, I do it for the love of my fans. As for Sports, I do it for the love of the game! After watching how much game you all have with the trick shots you have already sent me, and the dedication I know you have had to make them, I have to be just as dedicated and make sure this Game Date really happens. #BallIsLisaAnn”

All fans who have already submitted a video will still be considered by Lisa for the grand prize and will be awarded with a BRAZZERS t-shirt for their support of the brand.

Regarding the “unforeseen circumstances,” it’s entirely possible — if not likely — that the NCAA leaned on Brazzers while expressing its organizational unhappiness with the use of the term “March Madness” in a contest sponsored by a porn site involving winning a date with an adult film actress. Just a hunch.

But the contest will go on, albeit solely with Lisa Ann and without the backing of Brazzers.

The adult film actress of course has been making inroads into the world of amateur sports for some time, having intimated that she wanted to have sex with Kentucky’s Harrison twins as well as the 42-year-old’s fraternizing last fall with Notre Dame Fighting Irish wide receiver Justin Brent, who was 18 at the time.
