PETALING JAYA - A video of a group of students playing truant and getting drunk has gone viral on social media.

The two-and-a-half-minute video clip was uploaded on the Facebook page of Malaysian Tamilar Kural at 6pm Thursday.

In the video, eight boys are seen hanging out in an isolated area.

The video begins with an intoxicated boy being supported by two other boys.

The other boys, including the one taking the video, is heard repeatedly telling the intoxicated boy to dance.

"Dance la, this is your moment, dance away," he is heard saying in Tamil.

One of the other boys asked for the time and someone is heard saying that it is 10am and that they needed to be somewhere by 11.

Another boy, who is attempting to hold on to the intoxicated boy, says "he is dancing like he is possessed".

To which the boy taking the video says, "Jeeva, just let him go, let him go Vicky, let him dance as much as he wants."

"Play that song, let him dance to it. Take the bottle from the ground and give it him to him, let him hold it and dance," he added.

After shouting profanities at each other, the boy shooting the video, dressed in a red shirt, leaves the phone and goes over to join the others.

He forces the other two boys to stop holding on to the intoxicated boy, saying that he would be fine on his own.

But the other boys are heard saying, "no, he might fall" during which time one person is heard saying, "if he falls, punch him in the stomach and he will sober up".

The video has received over 15,000 views and 530 shares, with many condemning the actions of the boys, and asking them to repent.
