A video billboard has shown a pornographic film to passing motorists trying to beat the peak hour rush.
It was believed to be a Japanese adult movie given the graphic titles as the film showed a woman and a man involved in sexual intercourse for several minutes.
The video was played on the Jakarta, Indonesia, street yesterday afternoon.
However, flustered authorities eventually found a way to stop the x-rated display – cutting the power.
South Jakarta Communications and Information Agency chief Lestari Ady Wiryono told The Jakarta Post her office cut the power to the LED screen following reports about the indecent footage.
« We received the report and we immediately severed the electricity to there, » reportedly said.
Her office and the Cyber Crime unit of the Jakarta Police visited private company owner PT. Transito’s office for information on the content display.
« The South Jakarta administration takes this matter seriously, » Lestari said in a statement.
The newspaper reported that a 2015 gubernatorial decree said all billboard displays must comply with public ethics, aesthetics, public order, decency, security and the environment.
The billboard is located at Kebayoran Baru, south Jakarta.
Police were also believed to be investigating the possibility the billboard was hacked.
