Netflix Warns People To Stop Doing The Bird Box Challenge, But Not Everyone Listens

Last year’s most obvious evidence of natural selection at work was the’ Tide Pod Challenge, ’ with the dumb, gullible and reckless voluntarily poisoning themselves for a few likes on social media. Well, we are only a couple of days into the new time and 2019 ’s stupidest craze has already arrived, with people walking around, driving and doing everyday things blindfolded to induce’ hilarious’ videos.

Known as the’ Bird Box Challenge, ’ it is inspired by Netflix’s recent thriller Bird Box , starring Sandra Bullock. Her character and two children are under an obligation to take a perilous pilgrimage while blindfolded, in order to avoid some sort of paranormal beast that compels people to commit suicide if they see it.

The movie has been a major success, breaking first-week streaming records with over 45 million views, and has inspired all kinds of memes and recreations. What began as some harmless fun, with people bumping into some furniture blindfolded, escalated quickly as people began to wander about blindly outdoors, sometimes putting themselves and others in danger.
