Netflix to make 10-part reality competition series based on Mr Beast’s 257m times viewed Squid Game video

By | June 14, 2022

Yes, no longer wonder “what if they made Squid Game… but in real life” as it seems Netflix, through Studio Lambert and The Garden are making Squid Game… but in real life!

The losing contestants aren’t getting shot, the winner will be taking home $4.56m. Thrill to a full 45-60 minute game of Redlight Greenlight, except this time punctuated by quite annoying US-style confessionals! “So, right, there’s this doll, right, and you had to get from one side of the room to another, right, but if the doll looked at you you had to stand still! It was absolutely mental!” Get excited by huge amounts of contestants, none of whom you’ll care about! Discover that when it’s not in a dramatic form, the actual Squid Game process of playing kids games with no chance of death probably isn’t actually all that exciting!

Anyway you can apply if you want.

Look, isn’t it about sometime someone just revived Ultra Quiz?

      Oddly, YouTube has marked this video as “For Kids”. Watching the video I have no idea why. It doesn’t look like something particularly aimed at children!

        Perhaps it’s because Paolo Bonolis started out with children’s programs and the algorithm thought it was for kids.
        Once Bonolis said “Thirty years ago my co-host was a puppet, now… *looks at Luca Laurenti* not much has changed” 😀

          That’s odd. Isn’t like marking Fort Boyard as “For kids” because Olivier Minne once presented a weird French rip off of The Crystal Maze for kids, with a sentient robot sidekick?

          Seriously, this is real!
