Japan's musical instrument giant Yamaha is asking people not to climb inside its musical instrument cases and hide there. For their own safety, they say, following reports that former Nissan Motor boss Carlos Ghosn and now international fugitive fled Japan by doing exactly that: hiding inside a musical instrument case. It didn't name Ghosn specifically in its announcment on Twitter, but said, quote: "We won't mention the reason, but there have been many tweets about climbing inside large musical instrument cases. A warning after any unfortunate accident would be too late, so we ask everyone not to try it." Ghosn hasn't actually said that he was smuggled out of his house arrest in a music case -- that was on Lebanese media reports that Reuters cannot confirm. He's now exiled in Lebanon where he faced the media last week to again deny the corruption charges against him. Yamaha's tweet has been liked over 50,000 times and it posted a follow-up reminding followers again that its cases are designed for instruments and not people.
