Now here’s a laugh!
A Facebook page named Sarawak Viral shared an amusing story yesterday, October 21, of two teenagers who wrapped themselves up in white fabric to mimic the looks of the Indonesian/Malaysian ghost, pocong.
If you’re not familiar with the appearance of a hantu pocong, also known as the wrapped ghost, here’s the wallpaper from the movie Pocong 2.
and here’s how the teenagers looked like.
It turns out, this isn’t their first time pulling such a prank as they do this every now and then to scare those who live in the same village. Finally, they got caught red-handed last night by the villagers.
As their punishment, they were sent to a cemetery nearby and asked to spend the night there, which is befitting for the pocong if you ask us!
This amusing incident garnered quite a lot of attention as it was shared over 8,000 times within 24 hours. Some thought the punishment was a bit too much but the majority of the netizens agreed with the punishment.
A netizen said,
“You shouldn’t let them sleep so close to each other, otherwise they’d talk (to each other).”
Another netizen wasn’t satisfied with the ‘arrest’ as he strongly believes that there is another accomplice at large. He said,
“I think the person who tied them (the teenagers) up in the white fabric is still out there. We need to catch him too.”
This is something we definitely don’t see every day especially when most of the teenagers nowadays are so engrossed in their smartphones.
We hope they learned their lesson and won’t make a comeback as a Pontianak or hantu Kak Limah in the future.
What are your thoughts on this?
