Videos and photos of Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) students taking to the streets of Melaka on their motorcycles have gone viral
Hundreds of SPM students were seen revving their motorcycles around a traffic light junction in Klebang, Melaka, disrupting the otherwise quiet neighbourhood.
Astro Awani reported that the incident happened yesterday, 27 November and that a similar group of riders were also seen near Pantai Puteri dan Bandar Hilir - all of which are famous tourist spots.
The ocean of kapcai were seeing circling a red BMW which had students standing on its roof
In the photos that were uploaded on Facebook, one of the students could be seen with his arms outstretched, while a few students had their bodies peeking out from the passenger's window and sunroof.
According to the Astro Awani report, while the group on bikes disturbed the public with noise pollution, girls in the group showed 'gangster' behaviour by exhibiting various hostile actions on the road.
The students were also seen smoking in public
The students' public celebration had caused other road users to 'give in' to them in a bid to not escalate the situation, reported Astro Awani.
The local news channel also said that the group "indulged in horrific acts" on the road and were seen smoking in public.
Reacting to the the students' shenanigans, netizens compared them to movies such as 'Joker', 'Titanic', and 'La La Land'
One netizen said in jest that the student who stood on top of the BMW with an arm outstretched looked like a scene from the recent movie 'Joker'.
"(He is the) Malaysia's version of Joker," the netizen said.
Other netizens shared memes and GIFs from the iconic 'Titanic' scene.
One netizen even compared the incident to a musical scene in 'La La Land'.
"It is like the La La Land opening sequence, Another Day Of The Sun. Without the glam, of course (sic)," the netizen joked.

According to Sinar Harian, the 17 summons were issued by the Traffic Enforcement and Investigations Department (JSPT) of Melaka for various offences, including not possessing a driver's license, driving with an expired road tax, and illegal vehicle modifications.
