Somacguffin (also known as Somaekguffin) is an artist with over 100 million views on YouTube, but their most popular video by far is a 3-minute summary of Squid Game! It has over 9.3 million views and fans of the show can’t get over how good it is.

It’s hilariously accurate — take this scene, for example, where Gi Hun played ddakji and let himself get slapped in order to win some money. They even got Gong Yoo‘s eerily happy attitude down!

Somacguffin even lightly referenced the controversy surrounding Squid Game and Japanese film As The Gods Will, which contains a similar story with similar games.
