TikTok Star Recreates Brutal Squid Game In Real Life

Netflix | YouTube Bryce Hall

Wanna play a game? If you haven't sat down and binged Netflix's Squid Game yet, where have you been? Battle Royale meets The Hunger Games and The Belko ExperimentSquid Game is set to become the streaming service's biggest hit. It's everywhere right now, and unsurprisingly, Squid Game has started inking into real life.

As the internet is flooded with memes, and we argue around the office water cooler about whether we'd actually participate, one YouTuber has taken the idea further and created his own real-life Squid Game. Just like in the series, there's also a cash prize at the end.

Who created the real-life Squid Game?

The premise of Squid Game pitches 456 downtrodden members of the public against each other in a series of children's games. For example, the first episode has a game of Red Light, Green Light (or Grandmother's Footsteps depending where you're from). The twist is that being eliminated means you are physically eliminated by firing squad.

It's over to Sway House's Bryce Hall for the real-life Squid Game. Don't worry though, no contestants were harmed in the making of this viral - well, apart from a few bruises. Posting on his YouTube channel, Hall welcomed a group of guys to his own Squid Games, where this testosterone man-fest soon descends into chaos. Although the fund is a far cry from Squid Games' $38.7 million, the winner still nabs a cool $2k. 

Hall's setup is pretty impressive and even includes a blank-faced overseer. There are just three challenges to complete before someone gets the prize. Instead of bullets in Red Light, Grene Light, losers are shot with paintballs. There's then a tug of war over a leaf-filled pool, and a final round of sumo wrestling. In the end, it was a smaller underdog who beat an ex-football player to claim the crown.

Where else is Squid in video games?

Elsewhere, we've seen Squid Game pop up in RobloxFortnite's Creative Mode, and Minecraft. Seriously though, how much longer will it be before Epic Games does another Among Us and adds Squid Game as a mode to Fortnite.

Either way, there's no escaping the popularity of Squid Game. A South Korean internet provider is actually suing Netflix due to an increase in traffic. Apparently, SK Broadband wants Netflix to foot the bill for usage fees associated with a boom in searches surrounding the hit series. 

We also expect the surprise success of Squid Game will lead to indie developers creating their own rip-offs. Hey, maybe it's even enough to bring Fall Guys back from the grave? Squid Game is everywhere right now, and it probably won't be long until someone mods it into Duke Nukem 3 or DOOM.
