Squid Games… If They Played In Oklahoma
Out of sheer boredom and desperation, I gave up trying to find entertainment on the tube last night and decided to hit play on Squid Game. I've heard about it all week, and quite frankly, being left out of the conversations up and down the hall about it only increases curiosity.
While some have complained about the words not matching the lips, Netflix has had some tremendous success bringing foreign shows to the American audience. Does anyone else remember the Spanish thriller Money Heist? It was epic, and I can't wait to see if they opt for a season three of that show.
Back on topic, Squid Game is a South Korean show that creates a really unique concept of what life will probably be like one day. That sort of future dystopian world where the difference between the haves and have-nots is so great, you have to bet your life just to get your hands in the proverbial pie.
While it seems so strange, you could totally see this being a real thing in North Korea... like the Dear Leader hosts these games for the elite there, only instead of winning a pile of money, the winner probably just gets to die last sort of thing.
It got me thinking, what if Squid Game happened here in Oklahoma? After a quick poll around the Downtown Z-Studios, here are the games they'd play if the future dystopia happens here.
