America may soon find out if there are limits to how much money talks these days.

BangBros.com, a Miami-based porn website made a $10 million bid for naming rights to American Airlines Arena — the arena is home to the NBA’s Miami Heat franchise.

The porn site said on Twitter if their bid is successful they would rename the venue BangBros Center, which would be shortened to BBC.

“We’ve officially Submitted our $10,000,000 bid for the naming rights to the Miami Heat Arena. We wish to thank American Airlines for their past support of the @MiamiHEAT.  We intend to change the name to the BangBros Center aka ‘The BBC,'” the tweet read.

The hashtag #BangBrosCares” was included.

For the novice, BBC is an acronym for a certain classification of porn centered on black men.

To show what good neighbors they can be, the porn site is looking to partner with businesses that are close by, like Burger King.

“You guys are down the street from us, we want you as our official meat sponsor at the bbc,” read a tweet from the site.

“Miami is known for many things — South Beach, beautiful women and sports teams like the professional NBA team the Miami Heat,” the company said. “So it makes sense to pair up winning programs like the Miami Heat and BangBros for a sponsorship opportunity, naming the home arena they play in.”

The Miami Herald reported that American Airlines announced earlier this month it won’t renew its naming rights deal with the facility when it expires at the end of the year.

American Airlines naming rights deal with the facility expires at the end of the year and the airline has announced that it will not seek to renew the deal, according to the Miami Herald.

“American Airlines is proud to call Miami home. We are not seeking to renew naming rights for the arena, but remain the official airline of the Miami Heat and continue to invest in programs that support the community, where 13,500 American team members live and work,” said communications manager Alexis Aran Coello. “We wish Miami-Dade County well in their search for a new sponsor.”

A representative for Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez frowned on any chances of a porn site being selected.

“Miami-Dade County has rules guiding contracts and sponsorships to ensure they are family-friendly businesses,” she said.

Either way, the company has already won with all the media attention they’re getting. News of their bid resulted in a wave of memes and GIFs online… here’s a sampling from Twitter:

Of course, the jokes almost write themselves… here are a few other responses:
