Rami Malek And Pete Davidson's "Squid Game" Parody On "SNL" Was...Really Something

Like Squid Game, this absurdly catchy song will be the biggest hit of 2021.

Rami Malek hosted Saturday Night Live last night, and despite his "resting villain face," he did a great job.

One episode highlight was definitely Rami and Pete Davidson's musical tribute to Squid Game, which you've probably heard of.

It was — inexplicably and rather amusingly — a country song that featured Rami and Pete as cowboys (I guess?) who played the game to solve their financial problems.

Rami sang "My ex-wife hates me, event had to sell my puppy"

SPOILER ALERT, by the way, because the sketch actually follows the plot of Squid Game fairly closely.

From there, it went about as well as you could expect for our two heroes.

Rami sang "Got a crazy girlfriend, think she might stab me"

But they made it all the way to the glass bridge! Rami was thrilled to make it all the way there with his buddy Pete, but then Pete pushed him off the bridge to win.

But that's not all! Pete sang about going home, getting a cool red haircut, and learning from the mistakes of his past...

...only to lose all his prize money betting on the New York Jets.

So where does Pete end up? Back in the Squid Game, naturally, only he dies immediately this time for annoying the guards.

Things didn't end well for Rami and Pete, but we can all agree that the SNL production team did an amazing job re-creating Squid Game in a matter of days.
