After the adult company offered "Tonight Show" host Conan O'Brien a job after he leaves the show, Pink Visual received a mountain of publicity from media outlet TMZ and numerous others, which posted an employment offer letter.
But the sweet spot came when O’Brien mentioned Pink Visual’s name in the skit and told viewers that he might just accept their offer. He went on to pepper off more than a dozen possible titles he would get involved in.
“I really am considering this,” O’Brien said in the two-minute skit. “In fact I’ve come up with some possible titles for my first porno.”
Some of the possible titles, O’Brien said, were: “Coo-Coo for Coco’s Puffs,” “Two Hosts One Slot,” “Conan the Impaler,” “the Splay Leno Show,” “Changing Time Sluts,” “Conan the Barbarian,” “Conan Gets the Late Shaft” and “NBC Lawyers Gang Bang: The Backend Deals.”
Q. Boyer, Pink Visual's public relations director, told XBIZ that the company is elated at O’Brien’s response on the NBC show.
“We were fairly certain our offer would be mentioned on the show, and we definitely hoped for it to be weaved into some jokes and one-liners,” Boyer said. “That said, we wouldn't have been at all surprised if the Pink Visual brand name had been omitted, and they'd left it at ‘a porn company’ made him an offer.”
Boyer also said that the Pink Visual mention has translated into increased traffic on the site.
“We are indeed seeing a traffic spike from it, and receiving lots of positive feedback, including email from consumers who say they'd never heard of us before last night, but are now instant fans by way of all this.
“I've rarely had so much fun in a professional capacity. [It] makes it all the better that the celeb involved in this case is having no shortage of fun with it, himself.”
Pink Visual’s employment offer resulted as a response to the comedian's monologue the other night, in which he addressed various possible career changes he could pursue if the current programming debacle at NBC forces him to seek new employment.
In the previous monologue, O'Brien joked that me may be leaving television entirely altogether to "work in a classier business with better people, like hardcore porn."
