Whoops. Billboard faux pas in The Philippines.

It was bound to happen sooner or later. This time someone snapped the OMG moment so we can all share the embarrassment of the Executive Building Centre in The Philippines.

A pornographic video was aired on one of the digital billboards flagging the Executive Building Centre in Makati Avenue, Makati City yesterday, around 2 p.m.

The spectacle was captured by a bewildered netizen named Mulong Sermonia who was inside a vehicle when he saw the video playing on the digital billboard. When Sermonia realised what was happening, he took out his phone to record the display.

In the video, a man can be seen on top of his partner, doing what amorous couples do in the privacy of their own home, or on a porno video. The man’s face, however, was not shown thus so no one was recognised.

It seems TeamViewer was used to air the video. TeamViewer is a computer software application used for Internet-based remote access and support, as well as file transfer and desktop sharing. Those who use the software can connect to any computer or server from afar as if they were sitting right in front of it.

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 (We were laughing when we saw it),” 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 (Some who were riding motorbikes even stopped. A lady also stopped, and other drivers, including a driver of an L300 van, I think.)”

Thus far, it is unknown whether the airing of the pornographic video on the digital billboard was a prank or made out of malicious hacking. It may just also be a product of carelessness from those in charge of the billboard.

We’ll go for the latter excuse as the most likely reason.
