The Nigerian government has demanded an apology from Sony for making a humorous reference to Nigerian scams. In the ad, an actor says, "You can't believe everything you read on the Internet. Otherwise I'd be a Nigerian millionaire by now." A spokesman for the Nigerian government said in response: "Nigeria also demands an unconditional apology from Sony Corporation for this deliberate negative campaign against the country’s image and reputation."
