Jakarta jumbotron shows Japanese porn during rush hour? Suspect apprehended by police

Jakarta Jumbotron accidentally shows porn

Someone in Jakarta was probably really bored in traffic.

According to reports, around one in the afternoon (local time), during rush hour, everything came to a standstill in one of the busiest intersections in the area, as a Jakarta jumbotron began to air what is now confirmed as a Japanese porn movie. Police immediately rectified the situation, though pulling the plug on what was otherwise a very awkward situation for everyone involved (maybe even for the ones in the movie).

Others found the incident quite entertaining (and shocking), though, sharing plenty of photos and videos through Twitter.

Jakarta Jumbotron suspect apprehended

Presently, it is still unclear whether the video airing was done on purpose or accidental. But Jakarta police have already apprehended an unidentified suspect only minutes after power to the LED screen was cut.

The Jakarta jumbotron was reported to be owned by a private company named PT. Matapena Komunika Advertama who then sub-contracts the contents for its LED screens to PT. Transito Adiman Jati Transito Advertising.

Head of Jakarta’s Serious Crime Investigation Department of the Metro Jaya police Hendy Kurniawan announced that they have already confiscated computer equipment belonging to Transito Adiman Jati. A search has also been ordered by the advertising company’s office, while some of its employees have been called for questioning.

South Jakarta Communications and Information Agency head Lestari Ady Wiryono has also weighed in on the matter, announcing that they will also be working with the local police to investigate the case.

“The South Jakarta administration takes this matter seriously,” Lestari said her agency’s press statement.

According to local sources, there are 58 jumbotron screens in South Jakarta, alone. A gubernatorial decree mandates that “all billboard displays must comply with public ethics, aesthetics, public order, decency, security and the environment.”

And in case you were wondering what Jakarta jumbotron was showing, a Reddit user confirmed that it is a Japanese adult video (AV) called Tokyo Hot N1185.

You’re welcome.
