Real Life Squid Game Statue Used To Stop Jaywalkers

Real Life Squid Game Statue Used To Stop Jaywalkers

The terrifying laser-eyed doll from Squid Game is a real-life statue and is being scarily used to deter jaywalkers. Watch below:


In the actual show, the giant doll is the centrepiece of the horrifying 'red light, green light' game and has now appeared at a shopping mall in Philippines to discourage residents from jaywalking.

If a pedestrian tries to cross against the 'don't walk' red light, she swivels her head around and flashes LED-red eyes to single out the culprit.

Netflix are said to have set up the anti-jaywalking doll as a marketing stunt to promote the hit show.

Even so, it's still creepy AF.

However, the original doll from filming has also been spotted in Jincheon County, which is a rural area three hours north of Seoul.

She belongs the entrance of a horse carriage museum named 'Macha Land', say Koreaboo.

Producers of the show borrowed the doll for filming but returned it with a missing hand, which, in all honesty, makes it even creepier.

To those fans who have already watched the show, you'll be glad to know that the director hasn't ruled out a second season.

The terrifying plot has got some too scared to watch it, yet for a lot of people are already waiting for season two.

Well, director Hwang Dong-hyuk started off by telling Variety, last month (24 Sept), that he doesn't 'have well developed plans for Squid Game 2'.

He admitted that he finds it 'it is quite tiring just thinking about it'.

However, fans will be pleased to know that a second season isn't completely off the cards.

Hwang added: "if I were to do it, I would certainly not do it alone.

"I'd consider using a writers' room and would want multiple experienced directors."

He confessed to Variety that he's prefers not to work in a team, hence why he directed this first season on his own.

I'm not great at team-work," he concluded.

The premise for the South Korean series is pretty straight forward - a number of players who are short of some cash compete against one other in a selection of deadly children's games, for a $38.5 million (£28m) prize.

If you don't win or decide that you want to leave the competition, well, you probably guess what happens.

The Godfather's 'sleeping with the fishes' phrase comes to mind.

Per IMDb, the Squid Game synopsis reads: "Hundreds of cash-strapped players accept a strange invitation to compete in children's games.

"Inside, a tempting prize awaits with deadly high stakes.

"A survival game that has a whopping 40-million-dollar prize at stake."
