Not one mention of our quadrupedal, ruminant mammal friends.
A New Zealand plimsoll emporium has apologised for inadvertently playing smut on its promo screens for nine hours over the weekend. The manager of Asics' flagship kiwi store found the screen above the shop on Shortland Street, Auckland, playing smut films when he got into work at 10am on Sunday morning. He told the New …
As opposed to shutting the screen down and then looking for the source of the problem.
Really. I do believe that, had I been responsible, I would have much preferred passersby seeing a black screen rather than that.
I might have made a copy of the stream though, for "evidence", of course.
This embarrassing story for Asics has saved me some embarrassment, so thanks El Reg. I have a terrible habit of mispronouncing words I've only ever seen written down. Whenever I see this company's name on a shopfront or t-shirt they always put a logo that looks like a capital letter at the start of the name. In my head this company has always been "Oasics", a play on the word Oasis maybe I thought, through luck I've never actually said it out loud to anyone. That's right, there is no entry exam to become a commentard.

I thought exactly the same. But I have said it out loud to people, and they all thought that as well. You have to fail pretty badly at logo design to create one that consists of little more than just your company's name, yet still have no-one able to figure out what your company's name actually is.
"hacked" as in the same hack that a local driving school here in Norway had a few months ago (with the same result and choice of viewing material, beside one of the towns busiest roads) No one had thought to cover the IR sensor and some joker stands outside the window with a remote for that make of TV, and starts a playlist or a long video .. I believe some mobiles can also do this.
