Humans love to one-up each other so it should come as no surprise that Netflix’s latest trending movie ‘Bird Box’ has added to the ‘challenge’ idiocy…

If you haven’t heard about the movie that over 45 million people watched over the holiday, within seven days of its release, let me give you the rundown. WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD

In ‘Bird Box’ supa star, Sandra Bullock leads her two kids, who she only refers to as Boy and Girl, on a terrifying journey to safety – from what we don’t know – but they do it all while blindfolded which is what makes the whole movie truly creepy.

Within days of its release, #BirdBoxChallenge began showing up all over social media. People began posting real and stagged videos of themselves attempting to recreate one of the movie scenes or attempting everyday tasks while blindfolded!

This video being recirculated shows one dad accidentally walking his toddler into a wall!

Another (stagged video) features a group of people walking down the street when one of the participant’s bolts from the group and falls down the stairs of a subway station.

Then there are the harmless ones you can’t help but laugh at. Like this family who said,

And yet, our final video is from a ‘Bird Box’ Fan that had to be taken to the hospital for potential surgery after the caption says, “she broke her foot!”

All of which led Netflix to issue the following warning:

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.
