YouTuber Mr. Beast is staging its own version of Squid Game in a new video that is astonishingly accurate in terms of the look of the hugely successful Netflix show.
See real life Play squid tournament in Mr. Beasts YouTube video. Netflix scored one of its biggest hits ever with this year’s dystopian sci-fi tale of a mysterious tournament that pits ordinary debt-ridden South Korean citizens against each other in a deadly battle royale.
Play squid actually hit a chord with the international audience for its depiction of a hopelessly cruel societal microcosm, where finding out the rules is only the beginning when it comes to survival. To the series’ sense of brutal irony, the character of the games themselves, all seemingly innocent children’s games like Red Light, Green Light, Tug-of-War and others in the world of Play squid have new and terrible consequences on life or death. Now series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk is speaking season 2, and it seems like a slam dunk that more Play squid considering the huge popularity of season 1.
Play squid season 1 was actually so huge that it even caught the attention of the well-known YouTuber Mr. Beast, who has built an entire content empire by doing crazy stunts and giving lots of money away. Sir. Beast clearly could not resist the urge to mount his own version of Play squid with many of the challenges of the original show – but without the death and chaos itself. But even though Mr. The Beast’s Squid Game may not have the same implications for life or death as the Battle Royale played in the show, the monetary rewards are largely real. 456 people started out taking Mr. The Beast’s Squid Game challenge, and only one reached the end and earned himself a very substantial prize of $ 456,000.

The first thing that stands out is the astonishing amount of effort that Mr. Beast and his crew have put in to recreate the look of Play squid, all the way down to the costumes and scenery. The next thing that pops out is, well, the game retains the sudden death aspect of Netflix Play squid show, although of course no one actually dies, they are simply sent off with a harmless squib when they are eliminated from the game. For the most part, Mr. Beast himself very close to the rules of the games in Play squid, only deviating in cases where it would have been impossible to accurately recreate the show. For example, instead of the participants all getting a rumble to thin their numbers, Mr. Beast them to play the recruiting game from the show. Another concession is given when the playoffs are not Squid Game at all, but a much more American-friendly game with musical chairs.
All in all, it’s impressive how much of the actual excitement of Play squid manages to survive the translation to a much more benign and harmless iteration. But in the end, the vibes come from Mr. Beast’s Play squid is much more laid back and funnier than those that came from the Netflix show, which ultimately presented a very dark vision of the world.
