Michigan Billboard Stuns Drivers By Playing Explicit Adult Video For 20 Minutes

Ready to take a detour into the erotic zone?

Drivers in Auburn Hills, Michigan, were distracted by pornographic images playing on an electronic billboard alongside the I-75 and M-59 interchange on Saturday night.

Hearts were racing past the speed limit as drivers witnessed what some claimed was a threesome engaging in oral sex.

Luckily, nobody was hurt.

A driver told WXYZ he noticed other cars slowing down to make sure drivers weren’t just seeing things.

“You could kind of see people started to brake a lot behind me, cause I think they were doing the same thing, like a double take.”

Passenger Chuck McMahon told WDIV he thought he was watching a billboard for a strip club.

“I was just looking up and it—and I was like ‘Oh wow, that’s porn.'”

Here is an example of what another driver saw.

The billboard was active for about 10 – 20 minutes before the show was over.

A press release obtained by Mashable read:

“Officers arrived on scene and witnessed the video being displayed at that time.”

“We were able to contact an emergency contact for the private business, which operates the sign, and they were able to shut down the sign.”

According to the Auburn Hills Police Department, two pranksters pulled the stunt after breaking into a small building housing the computer that runs digital content.

The department described what surveillance cameras captured in a Facebook post.

“The suspects were inside the building for approximately 15 minutes before leaving. The suspects appear to be young White males, wearing hoodies and both wearing glasses.”

“The camera had a night vision function on it, so it is unknown what color clothing the suspects were wearing.”

“These suspects now face potential burglary charges for forcing entry into the building to gain access to the computer system, which is a felony offense.”

Billboard Pornography Suspects

Billboard Pornography Investigation UPDATE:It has been determined through our investigation that two suspects entered a small building, which houses a computer that runs the content for the digital billboard, located underneath the sign. The suspects forced entry into the building, which is also secured by a 6 foot fence. The suspects were captured on video inside the building, where they were able to access a computer and play the pornographic video on the billboard. It should be noted that the suspects entered the building at 10:49 pm on Saturday, September 28, 2019 and the date/time on the video is not correct. The suspects were inside the building for approximately 15 minutes before leaving. The suspects appear to be young white males, wearing hoodies and both wearing glasses. The camera had a night vision function on it, so it is unknown what color clothing the suspects were wearing.On September 28, 2019 at about 11:00 pm, the Auburn Hills Police Department received reports from drivers that a freeway electronic billboard sign was displaying a pornographic video. The billboard is located on the east side of I-75, south of M-59, which displays a digital image facing both north and south. Officers arrived on scene and witnessed the video being displayed at that time. We were able to contact an emergency contact for the private business, which operates the sign, and they were able to shut down the sign. We believe that the video may have been playing for at least 15 to 20 minutes before it was turned off.There are some initial reports indicating that CBS Outdoors or Outfront Media owns the sign. Those initial reports are not accurate and the actual owner/operator of the sign is Triple Communications with its parent company being Triple Investment Group (owners of the Pontiac Silverdome property). Representatives with Triple Communications have been cooperating with investigators.Promoting pornography and/or promoting pornography for minors by disseminating any pornographic material, images, videos, etc. is a violation of an Auburn Hills local ordinance with a possible penalty of 90 days in jail and/or a $500 fine. These suspects now face potential burglary charges for forcing entry into the building to gain access to the computer system, which is a felony offense. We are requesting the public’s assistance in trying to identify the suspects responsible for this crime. If you have any information related to this case, we ask that you please contact the Auburn Hills Police Department at 248-364-9460.

Vice identified Xev Bellringer as one of the performers in the steamy video from her logo watermark bearing her red signature in the lower-left corner of the screen.

Bellringer confirmed with WXYZ that the clip was a lesbian sex scene and expressed relief that nobody was injured after catching a glimpse of her performance.

She told Motherboard:

“Yes that is me, I never thought this would happen with my content. I’m just happy that no one was injured!”

“It is my sincere hope that this will open a larger public discussion regarding the safety of electronic billboards.”

The Auburn Hills Police Department confirmed initial reports of the sign being owned and operated by CBS Outdoors or Outfront Media as false.

The billboard is owned by Triple Communications with its parent company being Triple Investment Group—owners of the Pontiac Silverdome property.

They are cooperating with the police in their investigation.
