Lil Nas X continued his reign as king of memes with an epic mashup of his hit “Industry Baby” and Netflix’s inescapable Squid Game.

Nas shared what could possibly be the most ambitious crossover ever on his Twitter, reimagining the viral hit’s gripping first episode as a music video.

The animation – an edited version of Kotte Animation’s “Pro Squid Game Players be like:”  – is based on the animatronic doll featured in Squid Game’s first episode, which saw contestants play the traditional children’s game Red Light Green Light.

But instead of the doll saying “red light green light”, it’s Nas’ song “Industry Baby”. The animated contestants are seen showing off their dance moves rather than desperately running for their lives.

At the end of the clip, the green-jumpsuit-clad contestants celebrate surviving the game by tearing down the animatronic doll and dancing atop its robotic corpse.

Lil Nas X’s edit sparked tons of reactions on social media from his dedicated fans and those enjoying Squid Game.

In case you haven’t been on the internet for the last few weeks, Squid Game has become everyone’s newest obsession, sparking countless memes online.

The nine-episode series tells the story of a group of debt-ridden people who compete for a cash prize in a series of deadly children’s games.

It’s become an absolute juggernaut for Netflix and the streaming provider’s biggest ever series launch.

Squid Game was watched by 111 million users in its first 28 days and knocked Bridgerton from its top spot. The British historical drama had attracted 82 million users in its first 28 days on Netflix.

Netflix counts a video as any user who watched at least two minutes of an episode on the platform.
