One, two, three… Piano!
Although you actually have to be 18+ to watch it, the Netflix series ‘Squid game’ has also reached the Belgian playgrounds. And not in a good way. For example, the municipal school of Erquelinnes Béguinage (Hainaut) reports that the children are playing the – violent – games from the hit series on the playground. “And the kids who lose, they get hit.”

Dear parents, you have probably already heard of the series Squid game”, writes the municipal school on Facebook. “In this series, the characters are forced to play children’s games and if they lose, they are eliminated. Due to the brutal violence, the series can only be viewed by people over 18.”
Apparently there are also a lot of minors fans, because since Squid game appeared on Netflix (September 17), the children’s games from the series (such as 1,2,3 Piano!) are reenacted on the playground in Erquelinnes. “Our students clearly enjoy playing the games. However, they also take over the violent aspect, because the children who lose, get hit. As a school board, we make sure that this dangerous form of play is discontinued and count on your cooperation to make the children aware of the possible consequences.”
The school also said that “sanctions will follow” against the children who continue to use violence while playing. The Facebook post of the municipal school has already been shared 13,000 times in less than 24 hours.
