Oct. 17 (UPI) — Saturday Night Live guest host Rami Malek and cast member Pete Davidson starred in a country music video that lampooned the Korean dystopian drama, Squid Game, this weekend.
In the 3 1/2-minute clip, Malek and Davidson played cash-strapped, cowboy hat-wearing guys who sign up to play a series of children’s games with deadly twists in the hopes of winning millions of dollars.
“Yes, I’m broke and it’s a damn shame. Guess I gotta play The Squid Game,” Davidson sings. “My only option is The Squid Game. I’ve gotta number not a real name cause I’m playing in The Squid Game.”
“Weird cards, pink guards, locked us in a big room,” Malek chimes in. “Bunk beds, new friends, piggy bank up in the sky.”
The video has already gotten nearly 1 million views on YouTube.
The real Squid Game is now streaming on Netflix.
