Squid Game on SNL: Pete Davidson and Rami Malek deliver a deadly parody

Squid Game on SNL: Pete Davidson and Rami Malek yell a deadly parody

Squid Game
, the Netflix hit about a deadly tournament of kids’ games, has spawned memes and Halloween costumes galore. Now it’s spawned a country music video. Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live ran a scarily realistic Squid Game unsheathing starring host Rami Malek and Pete Davidson as rural guys who find themselves in need of cash, so they govern to sign up for the Squid Game.

All the elements from the show are there — the green numbered track actions worn by contestants, the red guard suits with dusky masks, the creepy Red Light, Green Light robot, the contestant egg meal, the cookie challenge, the glass bridge. There’s even a great version of Player 212 (Han Mi-nyeo), who looks just as murderous as ever. 

The song may tranquil familiar to some. It uses the tune of Turn Up On The Weekend, by the duo Branchez & Big Wet. (Watch the real getting below.)

Will there be a second season of Squid Game? Maybe, and we have some plot and recount thoughts.

In SNL’s version, both Malek and Davidson sing approximately the realities of the tournament as they move throughout the familiar sets and games. 

“They got symbols on their faces like the ones on PlayStations, and the mean guy looks like Dr. Doom,” Davidson sings approximately the guards and the iconic Front Man. And in the Red Light, Green Light game, Davidson successfully hides behind cast member Chris Redd, which doesn’t end well for Redd, who ends up in the well-organized transplant room. But as the catchy song goes, “That’s what happens in the Squid Game.”
