Japan’s tabloid magazine SPA![J] reported that Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs had been barred from taking Ninja throwing stars aboard his private jet plane at an airport in Osaka, and Apple’s spokesman denied it and told Bloomberg News that Steve had visited in Kyoto but the incidents described were a pure fiction.
Taiwan’s NMA (Next Media Animation) News, however, created an animation film describing the incident, regardless of its authenticity, and posted it on YouTube.
The film started with the scene that Steve bought the throwing stars at a souvenir shop. Then he was accused by an airport official of taking them as his carry-on baggage. Finally he angered and turned himself to a ninja.
