Watch: Viral Video Shows Squid Game Characters Reimagined As Hollywood Actors


Netflix fans squid game are going absolutely gaga over a new viral video that reimagines some of its main characters as Hollywood actors.

The South Korean survival thriller follows cash-strapped people on their journey to be recruited by a shadowy organization for the chance to win a life-changing sum of money. However, the competition is a matter of life and death, which shocked some when the first game of the competition was revealed ripped straight from the schoolyard.

Impressively, the show is poised to become Netflix’s biggest series to date, with fans in the US and overseas topping the charts on the streaming platform in 90 countries.

It’s natural for some to wonder if Hollywood might try to adapt the series, though for our money, we think it might be best left pretty much alone in that case. The show proved to be a compelling allegory commenting on income inequality in our late capitalist global economy, and those themes were brought to life so vividly that it would be hard to imagine any adaptation could truly top it.

However, it’s fun to think what the stars of Tinseltown might fit some of the characters. Keanu Reeves, Brad Pitt, Zendaya, Josh Hartnett and Danny Trejo are included in the list, apparently thanks to some kind of deep fake technique on YouTube channel Chambungg. And it must be admitted, given the characters they embody, these would not be bad choices at all. You can watch the video yourself below:

squid game is available on Netflix right now and you should probably watch it so that, at the very least, you don’t get completely confused by the sheer wave of masked soldiers in red jumpsuits that are sure to hit the streets on Halloween this year.
