This is a public service announcement: Please don’t walk around in a blindfold for the Bird Box Challenge.
The Netflix thriller has dominated Twitter since its release with memes about Sandra Bullock’s arms, surviving the apocalypse while blindfolded, and running from the unseen entity that has the power to make people kill themselves. Inspired by the movie, people are now apparently attempting to complete everyday tasks while completely blindfolded.
It’s … a time. There’s a lot of falling over and aimless wandering.
Other vloggers try to identify different kids of food while blindfolded.
And others are just disasters.
Like the “In My Feelings” challenge from last summer, this trend is getting so out of hand people are actually getting hurt. Netflix itself stepped in on Wednesday to tell everyone to “not end up in the hospital due to memes.”
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.
— Netflix US (@netflix) January 2, 2019
But not everyone is listening.
At least avoid driving while blindfolded!
