Police have reassured drivers that diversion signs on a UK motorway will not lead them to Netflix’s Squid Game.
The traffic cops have had to deny that the uncanny diversion directs people to the hit show.
The Korean TV phenomenon centres around Gi-Hun, a down on his luck South Korean with a ten-year-old daughter who is recruited for a mysterious series of games in a bid to win a huge sum of cash.
The organisation behind the Squid Game, which is reminiscent of The Hunger Games and has comparisons to Battle Royal, use a calling card with three signs on them.
The signs have recently been spotted on a yellow board on the side of junction 5 on the M4.
The board features a triangle, square and circle with an arrow pointing left.
And they look very similar to the symbols that feature on character’s helmets in the ultra-violent survival drama series, reports BerkshireLive.
On UK roads the shapes — square, triangle, circle and diamond — are commonly used to direct HGVs.
Thames Valley Police tweeted: “Evening all,
“So, we can confirm that by following this signage from the M4 Junction 5 in Slough will not lead you to the popular Netflix series Squid Game.
“It’s just directions for diversion routes during the roadworks *phew.”
Squid Game has beaten Bridgerton to achieve the biggest series launch on Netflix, the streaming giant said.
In its first 28 days on Netflix, Squid Game was watched by 111 million users, the company said.
That makes it Netflix’s most popular series launch ever.
