- No, Fox play-by-play commentator Joe Buck does not want to narrate your sex tape or cam video, and he would really prefer if you stopped asking.
- Buck has been commentating on some more mundane activities on Twitter while the sports world is suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic and said in March that a few fans had requested his call on their various intimate exploits.
- On Friday, Buck turned down a $US1 million offer for a publicity stunt request from cam company ImLive to “provide live play-by-play commentary for our adult camming site.”
- Again, please, stop asking Joe Buck to commentate on the sex you’re having. Read a book. Make sourdough. Re-watch “Breaking Bad.” Do literally anything else.

The sports world is on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic, and those who work in sports are all coping in their own ways.
Some NBA players are learning instruments. LeBron James is busy taking part in TikTok dances with his family in between intense workouts. Dana White is continuing to insist that “Fight Island is going to happen.” Whatever works, it’s important to take care of yourself through these trying times.
One of the more adorable results of our world without sports was a bit from Fox play-by-play commentator Joe Buck. Buck would normally be busy calling baseball through the spring and summer months, but with Opening Day on hold until further notice, he instead decided to take time to narrate some thrilling home videos.

From there, Buck leaned into the bit, calling home videos from media members and fans alike, whether showing off their sports skills or playing fetch with their dog.
HOLY MACKEREL THE GREAT @Buck DID PLAY BY PLAY FOR LENNY!!!!!!!!!!!!

But like other ideas on the internet, the collective hive-mind quickly came together to ask, “but can we add sex to it?”
While speaking with KMOX in St. Louis, Buck said that he had received several NSFW videos from fans hoping he would call their more intimate moments.
“Yeah, I’ve had a couple of submissions from let’s say, a man and a woman, that just didn’t seem appropriate to put my voice to in this stage of my life,” Buck said. “Maybe later in life, but not now. I look at these videos very carefully and pick the ones that seem the most wholesome to put my voice to.”
On Friday, things escalated even further when Buck turned down a $US1 million offer from cam site Imlive.com to call play-by-play on some porn.
Buck was quick to joke about the offer on Twitter.
Today – this 17th day of April in the year 2020 – I became the first sports announcer to ever reject a 7 figure offer from a porn site. @MichelleBeisner I want this on my headstone.

He went on to joke to Sports Illustrated that he would consider the offer, but only if the other top play-by-play commentators of the sports world joined him for the audition.
“I am highly qualified as I have been practicing these calls most of my life,” Buck told Sports Illustrated’s Jimmy Traina. “But I don’t want to just take that job without a proper, open audition. So if they get Jim [Nantz] and Al [Michaels] and Mike [Tirico] and all the others who do what I do to audition, I’m in. If any one of them say no, I’m out. That’s all I can commit to at this time. I can say I have NEVER been more flattered. And I know my dad would be proud.”
To once again reiterate a point that should never have to have been iterated in the first place: Joe Buck does not want to call play-by-play on your sex tape, not even for $US1 million.
