The digital billboard in Makati Avenue that showed a pornographic video yesterday afternoon has been shut down following orders from Makati City Mayor Abigail Binay.

The spectacle was captured by citizen Mulong Sermonia who shared the video on Facebook, garnering countless  surprised reactions from netizens. Sermonia told Inquirer.net yesterday that he was inside a vehicle with companions when he saw the pornographic video being aired.

The official Facebook page of the city government of Makati announced this morning that Mayor Binay ordered the owner of the digital billboard to cease and desist from operating last night after the said incident.

The company said it had filed a report in the Makati police and was planning to submit an additional report to the Philippine National Police’s Cybercrime Division “to seek their help in bringing the perpetrators to justice.”

“Our company, being the leader in digital outdoor technology, would like to continually reassure all its advertisers and shareholders amid this momentary issue,” it added. “The company concurrently sees this case opportunity to commit itself and be at the forefront of the drive against cybercrime.”

The video, which showed a couple having sex, appeared for about half a minute on the electronic billboard at the Executive Building Center at the corner of Makati and Sen. Gil Puyat Avenues, one of the busiest sections of the city’s central business district.

A motorist, Mulong Sermonia, was able to record the clip around 2 p.m. Tuesday and later posted it on Facebook.
