In what can be called as a bizarre incident coming to light from London, commuters were left bemused and baffled for several minutes when they heard a sound of pornographic audio on the sound system. It appears that the driver of a south London train mistakenly plays porn sounds over the sound system.

The incident came to light after a Twitter user posted a clip of the audio which was broadcast on the Wandsworth-to-Clapham train recently. Soon the footage went viral on social media attracting tweeples burst out in laughter.

“My tube driver casually watching porn whilst leaving the tannoy system on…,” Brunton tweeted. The video has since then received more than 1.7 million views, 14,500 retweets, and more than 56,000 likes.

While many commuters giggling at the unexpected X-rated broadcast, many were confused as to what is going on.

In view of the situation, a South Western Railway employee had accessed the X-rated material unaware that the microphone was live. And passengers of the train had a great laugh at the accidental broadcast.

Social media had a great laugh reacting to the video. Some even shared hilarious comments, memes, and GIFs.

Here are some of them:


Although it's not known as to how the sounds came to be played over the public announcement system and who was involved, The South Western Railway (SWR) had apologised for the error. They even said that investigation is underway. 

Speaking about the incident, a spokesman said the railway service “has a policy of blocking inappropriate material, including pornographic websites, on its onboard and station Wi-Fi services”.
