Amanda Knox Inevitably Offered Weird Job In Porn

Poor, exhausted-seeming Amanda Knox has endured a stateside media frenzyapalooza since her return to America after her murder conviction was overturned by an Italian appeals court. And now, to add to the cacophony, an offer to work for Vivid Entertainment. The job isn't to have sex with mustachioed thunderdicks, and Knox would be allowed to keep her clothes entirely on. Vivid's not actually asking her to appear on camera at all; the company wants to hire her to travel around to various adult entertainment-themed events and serve as a company spokeswoman.

Wait, what?

According to TMZ, a company executive said of the offer,

This would involve no nudity or sex. Of course we would welcome talking to her if she wants to pursue this direction, but the decision is totally hers to express.

The company hasn't received a response from Knox.

By now, we all know that Vivid Entertainment doesn't sincerely expect Knox or any of the other famous/infamous women to whom they've extended porn-related job offers to accept the positions. It's a publicity move designed to remind us that porn is a thing that a lot of people like, in the same vein as those commercials the American Beef Council releases to remind us that steak is delicious. My only concern is that Vivid, like the Beef Council, will take a shine to rousing Aaron Copeland soundtracks.
