Since its success on Netflix, “Squid Game” gives ideas, in particular to the Youtube channel Hamsterious which reproduced the tests of the series with hamsters. It’s funny, cute, but also tense!
The influence of Squid Game
Series Squid Game has been a hit on Netflix since it went live. The proof, in just 17 days, the program was seen by 111 million spectators, which sets a historic record. The show has become a real source of inspiration. Sometimes it went wrong, like in this school in Belgium, but also gave rise to some funny diversions. For example, we were treated to a parody of SNL, before a little clever launches an unofficial video game.
Today, we are talking about a new diversion, as funny as it is cute and full of suspense. The one from the Youtube channel Hamsterious who simply has reproduces the trials of the series with hamsters. A perfect video to wait while waiting for a season 2 of Squid Game, confirmed by the creator of the series.
A great version with hamsters
Originally, Squid Game features people in debt who participate in a deadly game in the hope of winning a large sum of money. For this they must survive trials inspired by children’s games. The first test takes place for example as part of One, two, three, sun with a giant doll. When this is returned, participants can move forward. When she faces them, they must not move. If they are spotted moving, they are immediately eliminated.
If the sequence is horrible in the series, in a version with hamsters it immediately goes better. Above all, the difficulty is no longer the same in the video ofHamsterious, to discover below. The different hamsters must climb over several cardboard obstacles, avoid spikes and finally pass over a turntable at the risk of falling into the void. With the editing and the sound effects, the video creates a real tension even if we know that this is all a joke. Despite everything, we fear for these adorable hamsters.
The video continues with the other tests of Squid Game, some of which have been adapted for hamsters. There are cakes from which you have to take out a shape without breaking it, marbles to find, a bridge to cross using a rope, not to mention the glass plates. The video ends with a fake fight. Everything was done with miniature reproductions of the sets from the series. We can imagine the work required to arrive at such an impressive result. And to go even further in this adorable delirium, the Youtube channel published a “Behind the scenes“which proves that no hamster was harmed.
Squid Game is available on Netflix.
