When motorists realized what was actually happening, some took out their phones and took pictures.
In the Philippines, traffic jams can be annoying and boring especially when it takes you hours to reach a destination that should’ve only taken you 15 minutes. Many people get into road altercations especially when everybody wants to get to their destination as soon as possible. However, this road “accident” has left many motorists “preoccupied” while waiting for the traffic to move.
One netizen named Mulong Sermonia was shocked when he noticed what was airing on one of the digital billboards flagging the Executive Building Center in Makati Avenue, Makati City. He first noticed a man on top of a woman, and they were doing something that shouldn’t be aired! The pornographic clip was played via TeamViewer, a computer software application used for Internet-based remote access and support, as well as file transfer and desktop sharing.
Sermonia told INQUIRER.net that he and his companions were laughing when they saw the video on the billboard. “Natatawa na kami nang makita namin,” said Sermonia. A lot of people witnessed the scene too, including the passers-by and drivers of other vehicles. “Meron mga nakahintong naka-motor, yung ale napahinto at ibang mga driver ng van, L300 yata yun.”
(We were laughing when we saw it. Some who were riding motorbikes even stopped. A lady also stopped, and other drivers, including a driver of an L300 van, I think.)
it still isn’t clear if the accidental airing was the result of a prank, or of the carelessness of those in charge of the billboard.
