Much to the disappointment of movie, TV and comic book fans around the world, San Diego Comic-Con was forced to announce its cancellation earlier this month. Between concerns over everyone’s safety and various measures California has put in place to flatten the curve, there was just no way the annual convention could be held. One popular adult webcam platform, however, has stepped forward with an unconventional solution.
This week, CamSoda penned an open letter to festival organizers, offering to use its platform to stream the convention. The two organizations might seem like unlikely bedfellows, but there are few businesses that have spent more money, time and effort on livestreaming than the cam industry. Viewed from that angle, it’s not quite as wild as it seems. You can check out a portion of the open letter below…
In addition to the live streaming component, there’s one other aspect to this offer that makes it seem a little less random. Late last month, CamSoda offered to let musicians, comedians and other entertainers have free usage of its streaming technology until regular performance venues open back up. The gesture was widely praised and now seems like a sensible precursor to this Comic-Con offer that’s a whole lot larger in scope.
CamSoda has a long history of generating flashy headlines, going all the way back to offering users the option to register their penises. To be honest, I find it a little unlikely San Diego Comic-Con will take the popular entertainment platform up on its offer, given both a potential apprehension at partnering with an NSFW company and the issues with getting talent assembled in one place due to health concerns. That being said, I’m all for this happening because I miss Comic-Con. I’ve attended every year for almost the past decade, and it feels like there’s now a giant Hall H sized hole in my heart. So, I’m gonna go ahead and drop in the last paragraph of the open letter with contact information into this story just in case Comic-Con organizers decide to get wild.
