A 24-year-old Indonesian man is facing a lengthy gaol term after he allegedly hacked a digital out of home billboard on a Jakarta freeway so he could watch pornography while stuck in a traffic jam.

The Daily Mail is reporting the IT worker managed to broadcast 10 minutes of a Japanese adult film called ‘Watch Tokyo Hot‘ to passing bemused and horrified motorists.

The steamy flick was only pulled after someone shut the electricity to the monster screen and not before the antics were all caught on smartphones and posted to social media. Check out some of the footage below:

Police and cybercrime specialists tracked the hacker who was later arrested in his office. He later admitted he was responsible for the raunchy traffic jam stunt and had acted alone.

Pornography is heavily regulated and blocked in conservative Indonesia and the offender is set to be charged with displaying a porn firm and showing a film with indecent images. He reportedly hacked into the billboard after seeing its login details printed on the side.
