A troop of Money Heist 'thieves' recently showed up at what appears to be a vaccination centre at Ixora Hotel, Penang

On Monday, 6 September, TikTok user @iliyapengyou shared a video of a group wearing the iconic red jumpsuit along with the signature Salvador Dalí masks seen in the series.

"Usually only foreigners but today a troop of Money Heists [came] to our centre," her caption reads on the video that has since gone viral.

Clearly not there to steal anything but smiles, four of them can be seen in the video obediently following protocols throughout their vaccination process

The popular Spanish series just came out with its latest season on Netflix, earning a top spot recently as the most watched TV show in Malaysia.

Naturally, fans of the series couldn't resist throwing witty remarks in the comments
