Carlos Ghosn's daring escape from Japanese authorities, during which he reportedly hid inside an audio-equipment case to elude airport security, has inspired a viral social media craze in Japan and prompted a warning about the potential for suffocation.
People have been posting photos of themselves and their children stuffed inside instrument cases, a trend that's become known as "playing Ghosn." The instrument maker Yamaha Corp. urged its Twitter followers not to participate.
"We won't mention the reason, but there have been many tweets about climbing inside large musical instrument cases," Yamaha posted in Japanese. "A warning after any unfortunate accident would be too late, so we ask everyone not to try it."
