Infidelity Dating Site Gets Name Dropped at Last Night’s Tony Awards Last night’s Tony Awards saw aussie host, Hugh Jackman, joke to Kelli O’Hara – who plays a sex-starved, unfaithful wife in “The Bridges of Madison County” – that perhaps “The Bridges of Ashley Madison County” would have been a more appropriate name for the adultery-themed musical.
It’s no surprise that Jackman joked about the Canadian infidelity site, as Australia is one of the largest and most profitable markets for AshleyMadison.com. His familiarity of the site coupled with the restrained laughter from the audience leaves us wondering if perhaps him, and others in the crowd, are satisfied customers.
Jackman’s clever remark hit home for many wives across Canada and the US, and caused female signups between 11 p.m. Sunday and 9 a.m. Monday to jump 160% higher than average. Australia’s love for Canada continues this week as the Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, visits Ottawa – coincidentally, the nation’s capital for cheaters.
