Since Squid Game has been all the rage lately, it’s no wonder that they decided to recreate that, too. And just as always: they nailed it! Once again, they used food, drink, and props from around the house and turned them into a brilliant and hilarious low-budget version of the famous Korean series.

Earlier this year, Polaroid launched the Now+, optimistically dubbed as the company’s “most creative camera yet.” It comes with a bunch of filters, and if you’re new to film photography, these may confuse you a bit.
