Big Balls-up at Bangkok Airport | Thaiger

BANGKOK: Bangkok airport authorities said earlier today that they had launched an investigation into how excerpts from a pornographic video were shown on television monitors throughout the international terminal during coverage of a major football match. An airport spokesman said it was a mystery how a 20-second clip of a man and woman having sex was aired after Thailand [also] scored a goal during a live broadcast of Saturday’s Southeast Asian Games soccer final win over Vietnam. “There is an investigation into what happened. We don’t know what went wrong on Saturday night during the match,” the spokesman said. “It is the responsibility of Media Network, the company providing the media service to the airport…and their manager has accepted it was his staff’s fault.” According to local reports, hundreds of passengers and staff had gathered in front of monitors in the terminal to watch the game, broadcast live from Brunei, which Thailand won 2-0. Airport authorities were planning to hold a press conference late this afternoon to explain the sudden humping after a rash of inquiries and complaints about the incident.
