While some of us were lazying around on a rather slow weekend, others decided to invest their time into making the most viral meme of 2018 yet.

With Valentine's Day around the corner and theme of love being in the air, a short clip from a Malayalam movie started doing the rounds on the Internet.

Composed by Shaan Rahman, the video resonated with many and filled the hearts of people with nostalgia of high school romance.


The clip was trimmed from the newly-released song "Manikya Malaraya Poovi" from the upcoming Malayalam film Oru Adaar Love and was flooding the social media timelines.

And soon, the scene where actor Priya Prakash Varrier exchange adorable glances with a boy, became an overnight Internet sensation.


When the situation got out of control, Sakht Launda Zakir Khan had to intervene with some Sakht advice.

The video was later picked up by comedy collective All India Bakchod.

Hailing from Thrissur, Kerala, 19-year-old, is currently pursuing B.com, according to this website. And by the looks of it, Priya is also fond of Mohiniyattom -- one of two classical dances of India that developed and remain popular in the state of Kerala.

Needless to say, Priya's social media accounts blew up in no time.

Created only a couple of days ago, her Twitter account already has 16 thousand followers.

While her Instagram account saw a spectacular hike in followers, with an addition of 5 lac followers on Sunday alone.

Thank you for all the love and support💙
