Gossip: China Sex Film Accidentally Shown on Big Screen For 10 Minutes!
Xin Jin Ping Mei (known in English as The Forbidden Legend: Sex and Chopsticks) was reportedly played to a surprised public for about 10 minutes.
A technician had been watching the film on his computer without realising it was connected to the LED screen.
He was meant to have been repairing the screen, reports said.
The advertising company that owned the screen alerted the technician, identified as Yuan Mou, to the live broadcast.
Mr Yuan then unplugged his computer and threw the disc out of the window, according to Chinese media reports.
However, news of the accidental broadcast quickly spread, and photos of the film playing over the main square near Jilin railway station went viral online.
The incident is said to have taken place last week and reports said that police are investigating.
