Rami Malek & Pete Davidson Star in ‘Squid Game’ Country Music Video on ‘SNL’: Watch

Netflix’s breakout Korean series Squid Game was transformed into a hilarious country music video parody during Saturday Night Live on Oct. 16.

In the skit, set to the tune of Branchez & Big Wet’s “Turn Up On the Weekend,” host Rami Malek and cast member Pete Davidson sing about participating in the show’s deadly children’s games to help pay off their crippling debts.

“Yes I’m broke and it’s a damn shame,” a cowboy-hat-wearing Davidson croons while sitting in an old red pickup truck. “Guess I gotta play the Squid Game.”

Later in the pre-taped sketch, Malek dons the same outfit worn by Squid Game players — a green and white track suit emblazoned with only a number — while standing amid creepy masked guards in a recreation of the show’s sleeping barracks set.

“Weird cards, pink guards, locked us in a big room,” the actor sings. “Forty-five billion won, that’s a whole lot of money. At least I think it is… I’m confused by the currency.”

By the end, Davidson wins the bloody games by killing off his friends, but he’s pulled back in after gambling away his winnings on a professional football game.

“Gonna live my life better now, I’ve grown in so many ways,” Davidson, whose hair is dyed red at this point, croons. “Then one day I got bored, and I took all my money, and I bet it on the Jets… Going back to the Squid Game, I’m terrible with money.”
