Play squid fans flock to play ‘Red Light, Green Light’ with the show’s giant doll in Sydney Harbor.

The 4.5-meter-tall doll, which is a copy of one seen in the Netflix series, first appeared on The Rocks in front of Harbor Bridge on Friday, bringing large crowds to the Halloween weekend.

Two dressed up Play squid guards stood on either side of the puppet, who have glowing reading eyes and turn their heads as they say ‘Red light, green light’ in Korean while music from the show plays.

In the show, game participants went forward when the doll turned away, but froze when it turned back – if they moved, they were shot and killed.

Over the weekend, hundreds of fans played ‘Red light, green light’ with the doll without the stress of risking their lives for millions of dollars.

The masked guards wore the show’s iconic pink jumpsuits and were completely in character as they intimidated visitors.

A guard even shouted “stop” to a woman who moved forward when she should not, in a video posted on Facebook.

Fans also wore numbered green tracksuits as the show’s contestants to get it full Play squid experience.

Sydney TikToker Alistair Fawcus, 24, was one of those who came in costume for the event and filmed a few sketches about it for social media.

Mr. Fawcus said it was “actually quite threatening” to play red green light with the doll.

“The eyes lit up in the voice of the voice, giving vivid flashbacks to what happened in the show,” Mr Fawcus told Australian Community Media.

Participants must check in with QR codes and show proof of vaccination (or medical exemption) to play the game.

The 3,000 kg doll will remain at The Rocks until Monday 1 November, after which it will be taken down.

The South Korean Netflix series follows hundreds of desperate contestants who play a series of deadly child games and risk their lives for a prize of AU $ 52 million.

Play squid attracted more than 142 million member households in the first four weeks after launch and is Netflix’s most watched series to date, surpassing the 2020s Bridgerton.

Sir. Fawcus, who has amassed millions of views by parodying Play squid on TikTok, believes the show has “opened the K-drama door to the Western world”.

“I think the biggest asset to the series is the relatability. Everyone has been down on their luck at some point and the fight has been real,” he said.
