A new, dangerous challenge called the ‘Bird Box Challenge’ has surfaced, based off Netflix’s Bird Box which features Sandra Bullock in the lead role. The absurd challenge has people blindfolding themselves while trying to perform everyday tasks such as driving, cooking, walking on the street, etc.
The internet is being flooded with videos of people performing the ‘Bird Box Challenge’ in exceedingly risky situations. Influential figures with huge followings are uploading videos of themselves undertaking activities like driving and operating heavy machinery at the gym blindfolded.
The challenge is getting so big that Netflix finally felt the need to intervene and issue a warning asking people to stop attempting it. “Can’t believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE. We don’t know how this started, and we appreciate the love, but Boy and Girl have just one wish for 2019 and it is that you not end up in the hospital due to memes.”
