The hype surrounding Netflix’s South Korean television series Squid Game has been dominating both charts worldwide and on social media since its release. On 3 October, Netflix released 11 high-quality wallpapers, ranging from the vibrant maze-like hallway to the familiar contestants’ stacked beds and show’s sets on their Facebook page.
Captioned “Squid Game backgrounds for your next meeting that should have been an email”, the wallpapers depict well-balanced and aesthetically pleasing scenes from the drama. Some of these wallpapers can also be used to subtly convey your feelings about the online meeting, like the contestants’ room with stacked beds, which probably means you are trapped in this meeting until the meeting host ends the session.
Warning: There are spoilers ahead if you read on.
If you opt to use the colourful children’s playground wallpaper, where vibrancy and childishness give off a feeling of calmness, you know it conveys a task of varying difficulties where your initial choice can easily make or break you.
The guards’ hallway portrait wallpaper can perhaps be a silent cry to your subordinates that you are not exactly the real in-charge in this meeting, and the pastel-coloured toilet wallpaper just screams an invasion of privacy.
The reconstructed alley scenes might be the most heartbreaking of all in the show, and using that wallpaper in your online meetings can signal betrayal ahead.
The glass bridge scene features the cast, albeit not in focus. This thrilling and action-packed scene has viewers on the edge of their seats, and is mirrored in the wallpaper: Are you trying to tell those in the meeting that you will be pushing them under to make sure you get out of the meeting safely, or are you going to be the one who will be pushed down?
Whichever wallpapers you choose to use during your meetings, we hope you get your message across to your team. Furthermore, we feel you about those work-from-home never-ending online meetings.
