Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 21) — The company that owns the digital billboard that aired a pornographic video Tuesday afternoon claimed the incident was a result of a "malicious attack."

In a statement on Wednesday, Globaltronics Chief Operating Officer Joseph Evangelista said the company is "fully cooperating with the city government in seeking justice for this malicious attack."

The company has complied with the closure order issued by Makati Mayor Abby Binay on Tuesday night.

"Our company, being the leader in digital outdoor technology, would like to continually reassure all its advertisers and stakeholders amidst this momentary issue," the statement added.

Evangelista said Globaltronics has already filed a police report, and will file a similar report to the Philippine National Police Cybercrime Division.

An investigation is ongoing after a netizen captured the video playing on the digital billboard located on Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue corner Makati Avenue.

Netizen Mulong Sermonia saw the video of a naked man on top of a woman playing on the huge billboard while inside his car at the stop light.  He posted the 34-second recording of what he witnessed, but it is unclear how long the whole video ran before it was stopped.
