A porn video accidentally flashed across a large TV screen in an IKEA store in Hong Kong for everyone to see on New Year's day

The incident took place at IKEA's Park Lane Shopping Mall outlet in Causeway Bay at 12.45pm.

According to Metro UK, the adult movie showing a man shamelessly touching himself, went on for several minutes before staff realised.

In an attempt to cover the deed, an employee was seen desperately trying to block the cock video with a sheet of paper

But it was a little too small for the screen. 

A short video clip of the incident, that was shared with newspaper Apple Daily, went viral garnering over 800,000 views.

After several minutes of helplessness, someone else reportedly went and unplugged the TV wire completely

One customer, named Chan, told Apple Daily: "It's a public holiday today, there were lots of people in the area, and it scared a lot of the children walking by."

IKEA has since apologised, though it is still unclear how the porn film ended up on the screen

An IKEA spokesperson told Metro UK: "IKEA Hong Kong feels sorry about the incident and is now conducting further investigation." 

According to the report, it is believed that it may have been a result of someone hacking the system and pulling an indecent prank on the company.
