Like participants in a protest march, the group of youngsters, who seem to be a team of footballers covered in mud, shouted slogans against the virus.
Reportedly shot during Holi, the youngsters are from Assam and reportedly came up with the video just for fun:

While some claimed the slogans seemed to be inspired by those used during the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests, many thought this can’t top the Maharashtra MP’s slogans or the “corona bhaag ja” song.
Yes, that was harmless fun, though can be seen as an effect of too many agitations, but this one here is serious protest led by a practising politician 😂: https://t.co/5EOby2DVAa

Looking at their faces it seems like a satire protest. Maybe it can be a clip for a satirical axomiyagiri?
