People Think One Level In Mr Beast's Squid Game Looked Extremely Dangerous
| Last updated
People have been sharing some concerns over Mr Beast's real life Squid Game.
The YouTuber, real name Jimmy Donaldson, recreated every challenge from the hit Netflix series, intricately building versions of Red Light, Green Light, tug of war and even the glass hop challenge.
He also managed to get 456 contestants - also exactly like the series - to take part in the challenges, with a top prize of $456,000 (£341,000) at stake.
However, some viewers who watched the games after the video went live yesterday (24 November) have pointed that one level looked particularly dangerous.
Those of you who watched the series will know that the tug of war challenge was pretty gnarly, with contestants plummeting to their death if they lost.
was there anything on the sides for safety?? that seems dangerous D: (tug of war)

Now, while Donaldson's version saw the losing side pulled into a foam pit, some people have pointed out that the platform still looked very high and there didn't appear to be much of a railing to prevent contestants from falling.
Commenting on a post about the game on Twitter, one user asked: "Was there anything on the sides for safety?? That seems dangerous (tug of war)."
Echoing the concern, another wrote: "Yo MeBeast, the Tug Of War game looked so dangerous, was there any safety?"
A third said: "Was that tug of war set actually that high? It looked so dangerous lmfao."
While another added: "Was that tug of war set actually that high? It looked so dangerous lmfao."
LADbible has contacted Donaldson for a comment.
After moving on from tug of war, the remaining contestants attempted to make it through the marbles round before going on to the glass hop game and then the final.
Unlike the real show, though, after whittling the group down to the last six, instead of playing the Squid Game, the finalists all played a game of musical chairs, with 079 claiming the top prize.
The runner-up didn't go home empty-handed, though, walking away with $10,000 (£7,400), which isn't too bad.
But as well as concerns over health and safety, some claimed the whole thing seemed to be in poor taste, given the fact the actual series was horrifically violent and just plain grim.
One person said: "The whole thing was about the people killing each other to get out of debt as entertainment for the wealthy.
"Glad that went over your head and you, as a wealthy person, are recreating it as entertainment."
However, others have had a slightly more upbeat take on Donaldson's recreation.
One wrote: "Jimmy this is incredible. At this point you should take the next logical step and establish a movie/ tv production company - you've pretty much already created one from scratch.
"I would love to see how you could shake up that industry."
