Rami Malek and Pete Davidson presented their version of the Squid Game
The American entertainment show Saturday Night Live (SNL) premiered a video parody for the South Korean Netflix series “Squid Game” with Rami Malek and Pete Davidson.
The video is only three and a half minutes long. But during this time, its creators have managed to retell all nine episodes of the “Squid Games” (there are even spoilers in the video).
The scenery and costumes are also recreated as accurately as possible.
Malek and Davidson portray the show’s key characters as numbers 218 and 456. They, too, engage in sinister childhood games. In parallel, both actors sing a country-style song in which they describe what is happening in an easy and direct manner. As a result, they achieve the desired comic effect.
During the day, the video scored more than three million views on YouTube and about one hundred thousand likes. In the comments, viewers noted that it was this version of the popular show that they expected to see from the Americans.
“I don’t remember the SNL sketches that I watched before would cause a smile. They were missing something. But it was funny”, “Great parody”, “Rami Malek is too handsome for Squid Game, – the audience shared their impressions.
Netflix previously announced that Hwang Dong Hyuk’s “Squid Game” has become the most watched show in American streaming history. “It has officially reached 111 million fans, making it our largest series launch ever,” the platform said.
The show aired on Netflix on September 17. In it, 456 people, mired in debt, agree to take part in bloodthirsty children’s games in order to compete for a large cash prize.
