The video was initially posted by Tri Adinata, a music teacher in an Islamic school in the north-western Indonesian city of Medan.

Meanwhile, the real music video for the 2013 release has been viewed over 106 million times on YouTube.

The band’s members Steve Garrigan, Mark Prendergast, Vincent May and Jason Boland, wrote on social media: “This is so awesome! Thank you Tri Adinata for teaching our music. Great work guys!”

Adinata, who boasts 32,000 Instagram followers of his own, regularly posts videos of students covering songs and in the second clip a group of his students can be seen singing British singer Calum Scott’s hit ‘You Are The Reason’, which has 364 million views on YouTube.

The music teacher even helped to prepare one of his students to go on the reality TV show ‘The Voice Kids Indonesia’.

Meanwhile, the Irish rockers are reportedly familiar with their huge support in Indonesia and even filmed a music video on the streets of Jakarta in 2017 where they were seen being greeted by Asian fans at a Buddhist temple.

Kodaline have performed in Indonesia three times, once in 2016, again a year later, and they played there earlier this month.
