A tweet made by Yamaha Music Japan Co. advising people of the dangers of putting someone inside an instrument case has gone viral days after former Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn fled Japan by reportedly using that tactic to avoid detection.

The tweet posted Saturday on Yamaha Wind Stream, the company's account for information on wind instruments, mentioned that tweets about getting into a large instrument case had been making the rounds "for reasons that shall not be touched on."

It advised people not to try it for themselves as "it's too late once an unfortunate accident happens."
