Scrubhub Is The Sexy New Site That's All About Washing Your Dirty, Dirty Hands

Gives a whole new meaning to "rubbing one out."

Pornhub has really been stepping it up lately when it comes to content beyond their usual titillating fare. Since the COVID-19 pandemic has got everyone even more cautious about washing their hands, the adult content behemoth has decided to jump on the bandwagon by launching a sexy Pornhub-like parody site called Scrubhub, which is all about washing your dirty, dirty hands.

Speaking of Pornhub and Scrubhub, the GOAT team talk all about it on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:

Styled exactly like the Pornhub site, Scrubhub features an expansive library of – you guessed it – hand washing videos. This isn’t just a half-arsed parody site either as the Scrubhub videos come with the goofy, all-caps titles that Pornhub is famous for, and all are sorted into the usual porn categories we’re more than familiar with.

The entire parody site is also unexpectedly SFW as every Scrubhub video is either just gratuitous hand washing, stuff to do with maintaining cleanliness around the house, or just tips on how not to be a dirty animal during these trying COVID-19 times.

The only thing that verges into NSFW territory is the use of titles like “THE BIGGEST CUCUMPILATION YOU’LL EVER SEE!” and “THICK ANAL HUNK,” which would probably cause a lot of confusion to people who didn’t know what exactly is going on.

This isn’t just a one-note joke by Pornhub to piggyback off the COVID-19 pandemic either as Scrubhub both functions as a funny PSA about washing your dirty, dirty hands and as a way to raise funds for charities.

Scrubhub will be fielding donations for two charities, Invisible Hands and Frontline Foods, both of which aim to deliver food to the workers on the frontlines and to those struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement from Scrubhub creators, Ani Acopian and Suzy Shinn (via Mashable), who partnered with Pornhub to make the parody site a reality, says:

“We wanted to take something as mundane as washing your hands and make it entertaining in the only way we know how – by taking a joke way too far.

“Scrubhub started as a fun idea that, thanks to Pornhub’s platform, we’ve turned into a destination for creativity and connection for the greater good. We’re proud to be partnering with our friends at Invisible Hands and Frontline Foods to make a difference and raise money for those affected by COVID-19.” 

Have to really give props to Pornhub for knowing when to lend a helping hand to people. That being said, this does give a whole new meaning to the phrase “rubbing one out.”

Jamie Dornan Has Kicked Off The Blame Game Over Gal Gadot's 'Imagine' Singalong

Here we go.

Remember when Gal Gadot got a bunch of her celeb pals like Kristen Wiig, Natalie Portman, Will Ferrell, and Jamie Dornan to sing a cover of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’, which proceeded to cop a heap of backlash for being tone-deaf on several levels?

Well after seemingly moving on to a new slate of celebrity quarantine misfires, Jamie Dornan has come out of nowhere to offer up his two cents on Gal Gadot’s ‘Imagine’ cover and make it perfectly clear that he was roped into it.

Speaking of movies and movie stars, the GOAT team talk about how the coronavirus has affected several big releases in 2020 on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:

Appearing on the Tea With Me podcast, Jamie made it clear that he just went along for the ride after being asked by Kristen Wiig, who worked with him on a movie and helped organise the ‘Imagine’ singalong with Gal Gadot “early on in the lockdown process.”

He took all of “two seconds” to film his segment in his bathroom before sending it to Kristen and saying “whatever happens, happens.” Those famous last words of course came back to bite all those celebrities in the arse as their ‘Imagine’ cover drew the ire of the internet for days on end.

For someone who isn’t on social media, Jamie says he “wasn’t really that aware of the negative reaction to it” and only found out when “some mates” discovered it and proceed to give him good ol’ roasting for being a “pompous, self-righteous, wanker actor.”

While he was all “yeah, fine, whatever” about being part of the video, Jamie sounded aware that this seemingly “lovely thing to do” could come off the wrong way to people (which it did), saying:

“I’ll tell you what the problem was. I literally did mine in the toilet of my house. Quite clearly, people had escaped to their second home. There’s too much acreage in the background, too many beautiful trees swinging, clearly by an ocean, that sort of craic. I was quite aware of that whenever I was doing it, [I just tried] to make it normal.”

Having said all that about the video potentially rubbing people the wrong way and his reservations over the tone, Jamie did defend Gal Gadot as a “very well-known, successful, beautiful person” whom he’s never met but believes “was trying do a good and kind thing and just got nailed for it.”

While it seems like he made his peace with the video, Jamie Dornan did want to reiterate that he was an innocent bystander in this whole ‘Imagine’ saga and wrapped up his thoughts on the topic by saying he “just got dragged along with it” by Kristen Wiig before shrugging his shoulders with a simple “what are you going to do?”

Of all the celebrities featured in Gal Gadot’s ‘Imagine’ video, I never would’ve guessed that Jamie Dornan would be the first to spill the tea and start pointing fingers at someone else first. My money would’ve been on Mark Ruffalo or Cara Delevingne.

Gwyneth Paltrow Says It's Totally Your Fault You Don't Like Her

Righto, Gwynny.

We already know that Gwyneth Paltrow won’t accept any criticism of her and/or Goop regardless of whether it is rooted in scientific fact or if it’s just irrational hate from all the haters out there. Now she’s gone one further and said that not only does she not care for anyone’s constructive criticism but all that hate directed towards her is all on y’all and not her.

Speaking of Gwyneth Paltrow and Goop, the GOAT team talk about one of the few positives about her on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:

Chatting to Town & Country about Goop and haters, Gwyneth Paltrow says she doesn’t care for approval from anyone because the people who don’t like her are just people who aren’t happy with themselves and are projecting their self-hate onto her.

“The people who are triggered by me—‘I don’t like her because she is pretty and she has money’—it’s because they haven’t given themselves permission to be exactly who they are.

“It doesn’t mean anything to me, because it’s not about me. It’s about what I represent, and that’s about you.”

Yes, Gwynny, I’m sure it’s because it’s because we’re uncomfortable in our own skin and not because of all the pseudo-science crap you keep pushing. But whatever, you don’t care for my opinion nor would you have listened anyway.

But while our criticisms and hate will bounce off her like wooden arrows against a brick wall, Gwyneth Paltrow understands how naive and lacking in self-awareness we think she is (A/N: so naive, holy crap) but she’s honestly believes she’s going to come out better because she can read what’s going on in the world.

“You can keep resisting it, but I’m on the right side of this, I’m watching the market. I’m watching what’s happening. I think what this wellness movement is really about is listening to yourself, tuning into what interests you, and trying things. Find what makes you feel better and go from there.”

Huh, that might be the most honest thing Gwynny has ever said. The key thing isn’t whether or not she believes in the crap she peddles through Goop, all that matters is others believes in it. How shrewd but given how many people are buying into this Goop nonsense, she may be onto something.

But at the end of the day, Gwyneth thinks a lot of the crap she cops is because of our inability to accept that she’s more multi-faceted than we give her credit for.

“What’s silently incendiary is we’re all saying we are more than one thing. Why can’t I get acupuncture and read a scientific paper? I can be intellectual, I can be sexual, I can be maternal, I can be all of these things.”

You know what, fair point. Aside from the “sexual” part of that statement (due to her previous complaints on how isolation life is killing her and her husband’s sex life), Gwyneth Paltrow makes a good argument as she’s proven herself to not only be a good actress but also a shrewd businesswoman who knows how to tap into the wellness market.

Not that she cares what we think of her.
