Netflix warns against participating in viral #BirdBoxChallenge

Sandra Bullock's sleeper hit movie has taken the internet by storm!                   By Taylor Henderson        @cornbreadsays

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

It has since inspired a unsafe internet trend that people are dubbing the #birdboxchallenge, which involves covering your eyes and attempting to complete daily tasks.

Chrissy Teigen couldn't help but tease her pal Kim Kardashian over her latest tweet about Netflix's movie "Bird Box". Social media users are posting photos and videos of themselves wearing blindfolds. "Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and all the rest fighting for streaming domination share a dedication to operating as though they're immune to the numbers-driven nature of the content business".

And at least one person figured out that the Bird Box challenge was actually...an advertising campaign.

On Tuesday, Kardashian West went on Twitter to let her followers know she was watching the Sandra Bullock-starring film, telling her fans: "I really like it".

Women form human chain in Mumbai to support Kerala 'Women's Wall'
Indian women stand in a line to take part in a " women's wall " protest in Kochi in southern Kerala state on January 1, 2019. The leader of opposition Ramesh Chennithala said the entry of the women into the shrine "hurt" the sentiments of devotees.

The new fad is to try and attempt various tasks while blindfolded.

And a bunch of other people took recreating the movie to an extreme. One man starts running and ends up falling down many stairs of a subway entrance, and it looks horrifyingly painful.

The characters in the movie have to wear blindfolds to avoid looking at mysterious creatures that have invaded human society.

Despite the alarm, there aren't a lot of examples of disastrous Bird Box Challenges.

It's only two days into the new year and 2019 already has a brand new viral challenge.
