More than a million people have viewed a video of a couple "having sex" on an English soccer team's stadium pitch before it was revealed that the amorous rendezvous was just a publicity stunt.
The footage was uploaded to a Vine account on Wednesday afternoon and appeared to show a mystery couple sneaking into Charlton Athletic's soccer stadium — The Valley in south east London — and getting it on in the middle of the pitch.
WARNING: Video may be a little randy for some tastes:

After initially denying knowledge of the video, Charlton have now admitted it was a publicity stunt for a scheme allowing soccer fans to score — for real — at the club's ground. The Football League Championship team is renting out their pitch for fans to play on in the summer.
The clip was taken from a 1 minute 20 second advertisement launched on their website under the headline "Score at the Valley."
And you thought Keychain Night at your local stadium was a big deal.
