MrBeast has made a real-life recreation of "Squid Game," something that has been popular in recent months because of Netflix's popular series. The rules and games are similar, survive and win the different stages, and a single contestant can also win massive prize money straight from the YouTuber's account.

The YouTuber, Jimmy Donaldson, a.k.a. "MrBeast," would act as the Front Man in the series, the one who controls the games and is an overseer of the happenings. The same green tracksuit was worn by the contestants, and the same red jumpsuit was worn by the guards or those that ensured that the game is running well.

The game has invited 456 people to participate, and MrBeast said that their selection was based on a random process which he did not divulge, unlike the game that picked expendable citizens who live on debts. The YouTuber has reportedly spent $3.5 million on the production of the video.
