A man was detained for playing a Japanese adult movie for nearly 20 minutes on an outdoor LED screen on the wall of a shopping mall in downtown Pingdingshan City in Henan Province, local media reported today.
The man, surnamed Li, was the employee of a furniture store in the mall that owns the advertising screen. Police said Li inserted a DVD starring Japanese porn actress Aoi Sora into a computer that was connected to the outdoor screen on Tuesday and played it for nearly 20 minutes, Zhengzhou Evening News reported.
Passers-by were shocked to see the adult video on the screen that overlooks a busy shopping street. Some took photos or videos of this bizarre scenario and posted them on their microblogs.
Local residents condemned the incident, saying it smeared the image of their city, and urged police to investigate and punish the offender.
Police said Li has been held for a 15-day administrative detention starting yesterday for disseminating pornographic content.
