Sushi, an adorable cockapoo from Los Angeles, California, took on one of the popular games from the hit Netflix series Squid Game – but did she survive?
As Squid Game remains at the top of Netflix’s streaming charts, many people have been recreating their challenges on TikTok.
From trying to perfectly cut out a dalgona shape to seeing if they would survive a game of Red Light, Green Light, the Squid Game hashtag has seen over 34.8 billion views on the video sharing app.
And one clever cockapoo has recreated one of the challenges with their owner – but would they have survived the real, ultra-violent Korean series?
The video sees Sushi, also known as Sushi Said, take tentative steps towards the camera for the game, which is most similar to the British game of ‘Granny’s Footsteps’.
Her owner, Zack, creeps forward towards the camera, too, awaiting the point in the music which sees them freeze before they can move again.
Only, Sushi continues to tiptoe forward and finds herself ‘shot’ – just like characters in the horror thriller Netflix show.
The video, captioned: “For legal reasons, no one died! How realistic was this death?” sees Sushi dramatically lie down and roll onto her side as she ‘loses’ the game.
Viewers adored her acting skills, and were impressed by her dedication to commit to the role.

One said: “The puppy knows his assignment for sure.”
Whilst another added: “That was off the charts good. This was the most adorable death ever.”
The video has been viewed over 261,000 times, but their most viral clip by far was posted last March, dancing to the ‘Oh nanana’ remix, which received 105,000,000 hits.
The Los Angeles social media star has earned herself 2.8 million TikTok followers, and is well known for her blue ears, which are painted with a vegan, dog-friendly dye.
Her Instagram describes her as a ‘video creator and fashion icon’, and she’s even brushed paws with pups of the stars, including Perez Hilton’s dog, Teddy.
As a breed, cockapoos display traits of both their poodle and cocker spaniel parents, making them intelligent and friendly dogs, albeit a bit mischievous.
In another viral clip, cheeky cockapoo Lola, aged four, attempted to use the 5ft hedge to climb onto the garden shed after sniffing out the bit of old toast which had ended up on its roof.
Shocked owner Justine Atterbury, 48, came home to find the hedge badly damaged and initially blamed her clumsy Dalmatian, Ruby, aged 13.
But when she watched the CCTV back, she saw the mystery culprit was Lola and said she couldn’t stop laughing as she watched her clamber through the hedge.
