Netflix issues warning over Bird Box Challenge because good God!

Netflix's Bird Box struck a chord with viewers over the holidays.

The challenge took off as soon as the movie's popularity reached fever pitch after its December 21 release.

"Can't believe I have to say this" - we can't either - "but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE", Netflix tweeted on Wednesday. Those who haven't seen it yet have still probably seen the memes of a blindfolded Sandy literally dragging her children through the woods.

Now, "Bird Box" buffs are attempting something called the #BirdBoxChallenge, where participants try to do things blindfolded like Bullock's character in the film (as well as the boy and girl she travels with).

But while "Bird Box" may be some of Sandra Bullock's finest work, its release comes with a downside.


Plenty of social media posts show blindfolded people wandering through the streets, working out and moving from place to place without their eyesight.

Obviously, no one wants to be associated with a person who accidentally gets hit with a auto or chops off a finger for an internet challenge, so we get it.

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.

"Bird Box" is a Netflix-produced movie that's already been viewed by more than 45 million accounts. The movie has also flooded social media with dozens of memes, and inspired a viral social media challenge. "The only Bird Box challenge that should exist", she wrote.
