Perhaps tired of people ignoring its steady stream of stories praising government policies, the government’s own publicity team made a big statement this afternoon – with a big dick.

There it was, in between items on a new tourist fee and health hotlines in state broadcaster NBT World’s Twitter feed, a retweeted photo of a fully erect cock lording over two plump balls. Beaming from above, the photoshopped face of a proud man – actor Panupan ‘Japan’ Jantanawong.

We here at Coconuts noticed that their Twitter account followed us two days ago. Almost as if someone was planning something and wanted to give us a “heads up.”

“Someone is about to get fired,” read one reply before the well-endowed shaft shot was swiftly deleted.

Blink and you missed it: By 4:48pm, the dick pic was no more. Its original poster had set their account to private.

NBT, aka the National Broadcasting Services of Thailand, is the radio and TV arm of the Government Public Relations Department. A message sent to its social media team was not immediately responded to.

Until they do, so many unanswered questions. Like, will they charge themselves under the Computer Crime Act?

Update: At 8:41pm, NBT World addressed the penis in the room with a tidy if implausible explanation: We were hacked! It also apologized for the “racy” (wink wink) content, as if anyone was mad.

“We apologize for the racy content. It was never our intention to publish any inappropriate content,” it tweeted. “We now have our cyber security reinstalled & this should prevent future hacking & cyber-criminal activities on our account.”

We can all sleep easy now that the cyber security has been reinstalled.
