13-Year-Old Dresses Up As Toyol And Scares Neighbours At Night For His YouTube Channel
A 13-year-old boy was reprimanded in the wee hours of 14 July, after he dressed up as the urban legend 'toyol' and tried to scare residents of a neighbourhood in West Java, Indonesia
Police officers were making rounds at 2am when they stumbled upon the boy and his group of friends shooting a video
The boy confessed that he only wanted to make a YouTube video with his friends
According to South-East Asian folklore, a toyol is a mischievous child-like spirit summoned by bomohs to do mischief
Often resembling a naked toddler, modern depictions often give it a goblin-like appearance with green or grey skin, pointed ears, and clouded eyes.
