Childish Gambino Uses Fake Porn Site to Promote ‘The Deep Web Tour’

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Taking a lead from his album title Because the Internet, Childish Gambino launched a fake porn site to promote The Deep Web tour. Gambino tweeted, “for advanced tickets for my #thedeepwebtour ask abella about “tickets”: http://abella.xxx .”

abella.xxx is a fake sex chat site starring adult star Abella Anderson. When “Tickets” is typed into the chat query, a link to The Deep Web Tour website comes up. A similar theme was used in Gambino’s “3005″ music video. In the visual, the actor/rapper and Anderson have a PG-13 sex chat.

The Deep Web Tour kicks off in London on February 4, and then hits the United States for stops including New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom and the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

For those wondering, “The Deep Web” also known as the so-called “dark web” is the hidden part of the Internet reserved for largely illegal activities like sex, guns and drugs. It was recently featured on the cover of Time.
