Back in 2014, during the Brazil World Cup, a Chilean porn star promised sex marathons every time her nation won at the tournament.
The extraordinary story has resurfaced during the current Qatar World Cup and it remains a crazy headline however you read it.
Chilean adult entertainment actress Marlen Doll went viral on social media at the time by claiming she would have sex marathons for each game that Chile won.
Luckily for her fans, Chile endured a successful group stages as they won two out of the three group games to qualify, before losing out in the Round of 16.
It began by Doll jokingly saying she would have a 12-hour romping session if her native Chile beat Australia in their opening game of the World Cup.
They went onto beat Australia 3-1 with goals from Alexis Sanchez, Jorge Valdivia and Jean Beausejour and she fulfilled her promise.
She then raised the stakes to a 16-hour session if they were to beat Spain, which they promptly did thanks to goals from Eduardo Vargas and Charles Aranguiz and she was proving to be a good luck charm of sorts for Chile.
For the final group game she raised the stakes even further to 18 hours if they could triumph over the Netherlands.
However, Chile did not perform on the night as the Netherlands ran out 2-0 winners and Doll's streak was over.
It actually saw her account being taken down after she had gone viral following the Spain game.
However, she was able to recover her account just in time to make the promise against the Netherlands.
Following that defeat, Chile exited the tournament to hosts Brazil, in a penalty shootout after it finished 1-1 after extra time.
No such promises were needed to be made this time around due to the fact that Chile have failed to qualify for the WC since that 2014 tournament.
During the South American qualifying this time around, La Roja finished 7th, five points off Peru who advanced to the play-offs and seven points off Ecuador in fourth place, who qualified automatically.
They lost half of their 18 games and have seen a complete drop-off from the quality of the 2010 and 2014 squads that both reached the Round of 16.
I wonder which teams could do with that type of motivation during the current tournament...
