'Bird Box' Challenge Causes Netflix to Issue Warning

  • The Internet Isn’t Having A Single Bar Of Kim Kardashian’s Reaction To ‘Bird Box

In response, Netflix tweeted today "PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE".

It's something that should go without saying, but Netflix officials are saying it anyway.

Needless to say, there are a lot of fails.

Bird Box proved to be one of the most popular movies of 2018 and it was certainly one of the most talked about.

Although Netflix was undoubtedly trying to be helpful (and ward off potential lawsuits), the post may have inspired some Twitter users to attempt the challenge. And because we just can't let things be, naturally it has led to the #BirdBoxChallenge, which finds everyday people blindfolding themselves and attempting numerous harrowing missions from the fictional (!) film.

Fans have rummaged through their cupboard for old bandannas and handkerchiefs and are throwing caution to the wind for the sake of living out their best Bird Box lives.

Released in November, Bird Box stars Sandra Bullock who plays a mother in a post-apocalyptic world where invisible monsters inhabit humans' bodies through sight and force them to commit suicide.

The Russian minister also noted that the U.S. openly state the need for the containment of Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. In December previous year , the Russian Premier said he hopes of "normalizing" relations with Donald Trump.

Note that Netflix didn't try to discourage people from engaging in the #BirdBoxChallenge - only to be careful.

As if it wasn't risky enough to walk around blindfolded, some people added heavy artillery to the mix.

And a bunch of other people took recreating the movie to an extreme.

Birdbox was released on Netflix at the end of December, and it quickly became the platform's most-watched movie in its first seven days.

The Bird Box Challenge has lead to some insane viral videos.

Fortunately, no injury has occurred as a result of the "Bird Box Challenge".
