Netflix’s ‘Squid Game’ has become the top Googled search terms of 2021 after Alec Baldwin and the cryptocurrency Dogecoin.

Sports were also big on the platform: the top eight search terms had to do with cricket, the NBA, and international football tournaments like Euro 2021, Google said. The wildly popular and uber-violent Netflix series Squid Game, a South Korean-made survival game about people desperate to get out of debt, came in the ninth position.

The American actor Baldwin, who accidentally killed a cinematographer on the set of a film in October with a loaded gun, was the most frequently looked-up personality on Google. He beat out Kyle Rittenhouse, the young American recently acquitted in the shooting deaths of two people during an anti-racism demonstration in Wisconsin in 2020.

‘Squid Game’ is now streaming on Netflix globally. The series is a survival thriller that follows a group of contestants who agree to participate in a mysterious survival game with a grand prize total of nearly $40 million.
