If you happen to be traveling through Jilin in northeastern China, it may be wise to keep children away from any giant video screens. These photos, taken in a public square by passers-by last week, show an enormous advertising display that accidentally broadcasted a pornographic film. According to witnesses, the scenes are from a movie censored in China called “The Forbidden Legend: Sex and Chopsticks”.

 

According to Chinese media, a computer technician in charge of repairing the gigantic screen was watching the movie on his computer and did not realize it was still connected to the screen. When his coworkers finally alerted him, the technician immediately unplugged his computer and threw the DVD out of his window. But it was too late: his mistake was already being widely relayed on Chinese social media.
