Art of Myanmar accompanied its two-minute trailer video with a post that read, "We have now proudly launched Burma's first ever [porn] HD." Would-be customers were encouraged to place orders from their Viber accounts.
But after the company's own account received more than 2,000 messages in 24 hours, it crashed.
According to media reports, the movie features a girl who wears a surgical mask and has her face blurred throughout the film.
Art of Myanmar said it cost them 400,000 kyat (0) to make the film.
A group called Art of Myanmar promoted the film, entitled "The Violet of Myanmar," on its Facebook page.
While Myanmar has no law specifically prohibiting consensual pornography, the Electronic Transactions Law and the Telecommunications Law are frequently used to restrict expression in the country.კელვინი, ედი, ტერი, ჯიმი, აიზეკი, რიკი და დინკა გადაწყვეტენ სადალაქოს გახსნას.ჯინა სტილისტია მეზობელი სილამაზის სალონიდან და ყოველნაირად ცდილობს ხელი შეუშალოს მათ საქმიანობას.The producers are also warning fans of fake Facebook pages — of which there are already several, despite the film only having been available for a day — that are trying to scam customers.Despite having the police on their tail, the company is doing (un)surprisingly well. The page posted an update yesterday evening, explaining: “We received over 2,000 messages today, which broke our Viber.” Due to overwhelming demand, orders were temporarily closed for the rest of the day, but are being accepted again starting from 8am today.
