Netflix Is Begging People to Stop the 'Bird Box' Challenge Immediately

By

Netflix's Bird Box is one of the streaming platform's most-talked about titles and is already being called a horror classic by fans of the genre and thrill-seeking masochists everywhere. The tension that's built in the film from the mere presence of blindfolds makes for one of the most uncomfortable (in a good way) viewing experiences in recent memory.

As the saying goes, life imitates art and vice versa, so it didn't take long for people to create a "challenge" based on the film. It seems there's a challenge for everything these days, with more than enough people willing to participate in them regardless of how dangerous they are. Just ask the kids who are vaping tide pods.

But challenges involving blindfolding yourself and trying to go about regular daily activities is a bit much.

So much, Netflix started begging people to stop partaking in the "Bird Box Challenge."

You'd think that a major network would love free social media publicity surrounding them and one of their titles, but not when people are really endangering themselves.
