What is The ‘Bird Box’ Challenge?
The Bird Box Challenge stems from the story-line of a popular Netflix movie that debuted over the holidays. It basically involves people doing everyday tasks like brushing hair or navigating a puppy minefield while blindfolded. This phenomena has become increasingly popular on social media, and therefore dangerous. On Wednesday, Netflix issued a tweet asking people to cut it out. The statement reads: “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.”
