‘Squid Game’, the South Korean drama series that features debt-ridden competitors playing a set of children’s games to survive and win a prize of KRW (South Korean won) 45.6 billion (approximately Rs 290 crore), has attracted viewers around the world to become among the most-watched shows on Netflix.
Since its release in September, the survival show has generated a lot of chatter on social media, with many, including desi netizens, constantly discussing the series directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk. And now, a recent clip featuring a ‘special alarm clock’ inspired by the show has gone viral, leaving many spooked.
“The Squid Game Clock y’all procrastinators need,” read the caption of the tweet shared with the clip. In the 14-second clip, a mini alarm clock doll is seen singing a spooky song. The moment the clock strikes 8 am, the mouth of the clock opens and shoots a dart arrow towards the sleeping person.
