Following the success of the series, Mr. Beast was asked by his followers several times to create a real-life version of Squid Game. So, the internet sensation gave in. And after a month of hard work and $2 million, the set for his YouTube video was ready. The video of $456,000 Squid Game is now available on YouTube for viewers to enjoy.
Mr. Beast $456,000 Squid Game Challenge Rendition Video
On November 24, 2021, Mr. Beast released the much anticipated video. And it has gone viral! As people from all around the world watch the 25 minute and 42-second video where the participants play less deadly games for a huge amount of money.
Throughout the last month, Mr. Beast has been giving glimpses of the $2 million set that he was preparing along with his team for the $456,000 Squid Game to take place. Moreover, each glimpse of the set only proves how dedicated Mr. Beast is and how closely he tries to copy the details from the Netflix show.
In this $456,000 Squid Game, the Youtuber copies lots of games which include Red Light Green Light, Marbles, Tug of War, and Dalgona. However, his version of these games is less of a life and death situation and more of a whoever wins gets to take home a massive amount of money.
The 456 players are made to dress up similar to the Squid Game participants. They are made to wear props that would explode as soon as the player gets out. Additionally, the participant pretends to be dead as soon as he losses a challenge and is out of the race to win. All of this has been done so that the game feels more and more like the actual version.
The Youtuber made numerous changes in his version of the Netflix show. Instead of having the night time beatdown like the series, the Youtuber opts for a competitive game of Ddakji. Also, he changes the final game from squid game to a game of musical chairs. The music in this game is from the series.
Player 079 lasted throughout the challenges of the $456,000 Squid Game. And became victorious as he took home the prize money.
This video is just one of the extreme examples that Mr. Beast is willing to take to stay on the top on YouTube. He often comes up with the craziest of plans and makes them a reality. His version of the Squid Games is taking the internet by storm. We wonder what new project will Mr. Beast have in store next time. Until then, we recommend everyone to go and have a look at the video on YouTube.
