That’s not the end. Many people are now attempting the “Bird Box Challenge” putting their and other lives in danger. Seeing this, Netflix has even issued a warning not to attempt this challenge.
Bird Box film is about a family who is trying to hide from a mysterious monster by blindfolding themselves. If you see, you get killed. Before the Bird Box challenge, social media was stormed with memes of the film but people had to take it to the next level by mimicking the same behavior as seen in the film.
If you have seen the movie, you will probably know what the challenge will be. The Bird Box Challenge consists of people blindfolding themselves and then attempting their everyday tasks. People are even seen walking on the streets blindfolded.

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.
