Porn film plays on Jakarta billboard, police investigate

Social sharing

JAKARTA: An explicit pornographic video was broadcast on a public billboard in broad daylight in Jakarta, with police and cyber crime specialists on Saturday (Oct 1) searching for the culprit behind the gaffe.

The offending clip of a couple engaged in a steamy tryst beamed at peak hour on Friday, shocking and amusing motorists in equal measure as they crawled along the major road in heavy traffic.

The power was quickly shut off to the “videotron” — as the giant advertising screens are locally known — but not before the whole scandalous incident was captured on motorists’ phones and sent viral on social media.

The hashtag “#videotron” quickly started trending, with much speculation about who was responsible for the X-rated gaffe, which broadcast just a stone’s throw from the South Jakarta mayor’s office.

The video file — titled “Watch Tokyo Hot” — appeared to be streaming from a personal computer, prompting suggestions that someone’s week was about to take a turn for the worse.

But police were still searching for a motive behind the “videotron” scandal, Jakarta metropolitan police said in a statement Saturday.

A specialist cyber crime unit had joined the investigation to determine whether the broadcast was deliberate or hacking was involved, the police’s head of public relations Awi Setiyono said.

Police have seized a computer from the offices of a private company as part of their investigation, he added.

Access to pornographic websites is blocked in Muslim-majority Indonesia, and romantic scenes in films and television programs are heavily blurred or cut altogether by state censors.
