Netflix’s South Korean survival drama series Squid Game has taken viewers by storm becoming one of the biggest shows on the streaming platform.
The gory series is a survival thriller set in modern-day Seoul, where a group of 456 people are invited to play a series of children’s games with the chance to win a huge amount of money – but if you lose in the game, you lose your life.
The hit show has been used to generate memes and challenges across social media platforms.
TikTok star Alistair Fawcus shared a hilarious video revealing what games would be played on the show if the hit series was set in Australia.
In the video, he is seen playing handball while wearing a jacket with the number ‘530’ written on the front.
He then begins playing heads down, thumbs up – a game that involves guessing which person touched your thumb.
Alistair eventually moves on to playing the popular playground game hopscotch.
‘If Squidgame was set in Australia #squidgame #viral #netflix #australia #handball #aus #korean #aussie,’ he captioned the video.
