Squid Game (acapella) - MayTree

The opening verse of the Red Light Green Light track is definitely a top contender for earworm of the year. Acapella outfit MayTree starts off their performance with that very song, before transitioning into the various addictive tracks from the series. Impressive doesn't even begin to describe the one-minute production.

From smooth harmonies to incredible sound effects, one would actually believe a complete orchestra was performing instead of an acapella group without instruments.
