A detour to a potential “squid game” isn’t really real.
A sign on the motorway bearing symbols similar to the “squid game” has led police to advise drivers that it will not lead them to a deadly tournament.
Thane Valley Police in the United Kingdom tweeted a sign with triangle, square and circle symbols only for diversion routes and not for Netflix shows.
TVP tweeted, “In the evening, we can confirm that following this signage from M4 Junction 5 in @TVP_Slough will not lead you to the popular @netflix series #SquidGame.”
“Squid Game” set the internet on fire after its release on Netflix last month and peaked at No. 1 in 90 countries. The South Korean horror series features contestants playing several children’s games to win a large cash prize at the end.
