A curious monkey has stolen a girl's mobile phone after making a cameo appearance when they were filming a dance.
TikTok user Annisa, 16, from the city of Medan in the Indonesian province of North Sumatra, was choreographing some moves for her social media account with her step sister near their home.
In the now-viral video, with 22.3 million views, the two girls are seen standing in a line right in front of the phone just when the macaque appears from behind them.
When they are about to dance to artist 24kGoldn's song "Mood", Annisa notices a small figure from the phone screen and turns around to find the wild monkey staring at them from behind.
Realising that the animal could be dangerous, the pair spring to their feet and run for safety.
The cheeky monkey hesitates for a while and looks left and right before running up front to check out the electronic device.
It takes a quick look at the camera and nicks her phone straight before the footage cuts.
Annisa managed to retrieve the phone later but she didn't reveal how she got it back.
Viewers were excited to see the surprise monkey cameo, and some joked that primate wanted to become an influencer on TikTok.
One wrote: "It just wants to join TikTok!"
"Monkey said 'you got any games?'" a second joked while a third added: "The monkey just wants to join you for a little dance and you freaked out haha."
Annisa responded: "I was panicking and ran without thinking to grab my phone with me. Luckily the phone was not damaged."
