Lil Nas X gives Squid Game the ending it deserves with epic, ass-filled crossover
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.
