One of the more notable life-or-death games in the series is Red Light, Green Light. In a burst of creative genius, Justinthelight guy rigged his Christmas lights up to video and audio from this particular part of the show.

A large screen shows Squid Game’s terrifying robotic doll turning back and forth while audio blares from the speakers, indicating for players to stop or go at cues of “Red Light” or “Green Light.”

The lights strung up around the house also turn red or green depending on the cue, and there are even a few Triangle guards standing watch in case anyone moves a muscle.

The video, uploaded to TikTok on October 20, is making the rounds on viewers’ For You Pages, and has garnered an impressive 23 million views at the time of writing (although we’re not certain how the neighbors feel about this display).

Known as the ‘TikTok House,’ Justin’s holiday light show is certainly impressive, leaving fans wondering what he’s got up his sleeve as the season goes on.
