The film which released on Netflix in the mid of December has become the talk of the town, or say the entire globe. Even the Hollywood celebrities couldn’t stop talking about it, it’s that good for sure. However, the instant fame of Bird Box has led to the inception of this weird internet challenge that demands people to perform certain tasks BLINDFOLDED.

For the unversed, Bird Box is a post-apocalyptic film in which people start killing themselves after seeing a demon with their naked eyes. In order to survive, Sandra Bullock and her two kids have to keep their blindfolds on for their lifetime to survive. The film became the most watched film on Netflix ever with 45 million views. But as the collateral damage, a viral Bird Box challenge emerges.

Certain videos have surfaced on the social media which shows netizens pulling off stunts putting blindfolds on. One viral video shows a family paddling away in their bathtub blindfolded. In another video, a family hits the wall while trying to run with their blindfolds on. Soon these videos and the challenge caught the attention of Netflix, which in turn urged people to stop taking the challenge.
