Sex and English soccer, day two: the saga continues

So the Charlton sex tape Vine was indeed a hoax. But here the story takes an unexpected twist, for it was not concocted by some 16-year-old computer genius from his bedroom in Finland, but by the club themselves.

Specifically, a horny PR company working for the club, who wanted to promote them hiring out their field to the public during the close season. Yes, pitch hire. Not even a new line of lingerie, sex toys or Charlton Athletic-brand condoms.

The full 80-second film concludes with: “Fancy scoring at The Valley in May? Contact the sales team now to book the pitch for your team.”

Which, if taken in the literal context of the video, sounds like an officially-sanctioned invitation to have an orgy.

The club had initially denied any knowledge of the incident, which has given the mid-table Championship side far more publicity than anything their players have achieved on the same patch of grass this season.

All in all, it’s going to be hard to look at the Addicks’ club crest in the same way again. I mean, I always thought it was a sword. Now I’m not so sure.
