- I cannot tell you how many kids have asked if I got this from Squid Game.
Obviously it's from that game as a kid putting blocks into matching holes. Damn kids don't know anything these daysID: hiunaih
You mean the square hole game?ID: hiuy03jID: hiushs0
Bruh is that why its called PLAYstation?
All I can ask is who's letting their kids watch squid game?ID: hiw4419
The same parents Who give smartphones to their Kids when they're 9, i Guess.ID: hiw4f1b
Not wrong there.ID: hiwpyjv
Which is a lot of them unfortunately.ID: hiwll28
Roblox squid game?ID: hiwlqza
This was immediate thought.. and I don't even have kids.
Fuck I am old.ID: hixh1ig
Lmao, yeah. I have a 9 year old. Maybe when he's in his teens we can enjoy shows and movies like that. Squid is pretty brutal and graphic. It's good. Could have had a better ending.
The new ps5 squid game editionID: hiuwztk
Comes with a wrist bracelet that plugs into the wall socket.
If this is true, I don't know what's worse... the fact that kids didn't recognize the Playstation symbols, or the fact that Squid Game, an adult show, is more recognizable to them...ID: hiut27j
Definitely the latterID: hiwj73g
I think part of that is because it became an insanely popular internet sensation. Even without watching the show, there are tons of references on YouTube, TikTok, Roblox game modes that kids can watch and pickup on.
There are a lot of violent/horror topics that kids may not have first-hand experience consuming, but are aware of them due to references through other outlets.ID: hiv800v
I saw kids in squid game Halloween costumes and I was shocked. Why the hell are Children watching that??ID: hivfzii
Right now squid game is getting heavily milked n YouTube right now, mostly targeted at younger kids. It’s all the roblox squid game bullshit, so then kids want to watch it. Most the time they find a way to pirate it.ID: hivfu6e
Probably due to the roblox modID: hiw6f6v
Kids arn’t watching the show, they are learning about it through media. It is similar to knowing who spiderman is, or hearing about hogwarts. Word spreads and if their parents watch it they probably thought “cool pink suits!”ID: hiw8v6z
Netflix changed rating from 12 to 16, the show got unexpectedly popular. Not netflix popular but internet popular. So everyone got a glimpse. (Also, kids play fanmade Roblox variants of the show).
It's not too bad/crazy. There's hope.ID: hiw3nfv
Same reason there were alien, predator, and terminator action figures in the 90's. Kids watch stuff, will always happen.ID: hiv964y
C’mon now, if we’re gonna use the “kids are allowed to see violence but not a nipple” saying, kids know what Squid Game is. Kids have their finger on the pulse of pop culture far more than you or I.ID: hivaxbq
Was thinking the same thingID: hiuzoto
Blame social mediaID: hivfs4u
No blame parents not doing their job. Not that social media is not to blame for a lot of things, but if you kids consume media that is not age apropriate for them, its only on the parents and no one else is to blame.ID: hivig4q
It’s funny how no one remembers the stuff they watched when they were kids and pretend they’ve been adults their entire lives.
I have an xbox and even this upsets me
Funny because when watching the show, I thought the VIPs would have X masks.
Kids don't know what a modern PlayStation controller looks like?ID: hiu8pxm
You mean the one from Squid games?ID: hiu9n20
From every playstation ever made,wait hold up, why are kids watching squidgame?ID: hiv273m
To be fair I didn’t recognize it as PS - the buttons don’t have a fill like they do on the pumpkin, just the outline.
So funny, the kid doesn't know playstation is hard to believe.
I’m sure it’s more because... why would someone carve out the PlayStation logos for Halloween?
Squid game is hugely popular leading up to this spooky season, involves lots of bloody death and is a popular costume even. Really not a huge stretch.ID: hivy02j
Same thoughtID: hiv6la9
Why? So they can clutch their pearls in a safe-space sub and act mortified.
It’s like the whole “It’s Master Chief from fortnite!!”ID: hivivtn
this reminds me of when my friend dressed up as a psycho from borderlands and a couple kids were like "hey, it's that guy from fortnite" i don't even really like borderlands but it kinda pissed me off when they said that
Why are kids watching squid game?
It may have been more recognizable in a diamond pattern.
Even I assumed “Squid Game” at first glance. It’s just part of the zeitgeist right now and what people are primed to expect.
I use to put out an xbox pumpkin but after the 12th smashed pumpkin i learned to hate ever pirate i saw on halloween.ID: hiu7z24
Took me a second but actually would have been clever to hide candy or something in
That's ok, I was a plague doctor to hand out candy. One kid only knew me as "that one hat from among us"
Yeet the kids
Holy shit. I just realized that the “X”s in the show are the eliminated players.
Circles are foot soldiers, triangles are enforcers, squares are leaders, and Xs are…it’s so damn obvious now.ID: hiurkfo
The more angles the higher up on the leadership totem. So VIPs>Frontman>Squares>Triangles>Circles.ID: hiv6ag8
I think it's circles are workers, triangles are soldiers (seen carrying guns) and squares are leaders.
Kids shouldn’t be watching squid game, wtf.
