Netflix asks people to stop the ‘ ‘birdbox’ challenge and not to hurt themselves with this challenge.
“Bird Box” became Netflix’s most-watched film within the first seven days of its release. The success of Netflix’s “Bird Box” has led a viral social media challenge. But recently Netflix issued a warning to viewers who are all taking part in the “Bird Box” challenge, in which people are called to do everyday tasks blindfolded.
Several people took to social media to partake in the “Bird Box” challenge, which requires people to do everyday tasks blindfolded like Bullock’s character in the movie. Using the hashtag #BirdBoxChallenge, social media users posted photos and videos of themselves attempting to do tasks like using the escalator, operating a scooter indoors and dancing without their sense of sight.
Most of the videos end up with people crashing or falling. No serious injuries related to the challenge have been reported so far.
On sharing the message of warning, the company tweeted as follows:
“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,” the streaming service tweeted.
“Took off my blindfold this morning to discover that 45,037,125 Netflix accounts have already watched ‘Bird Box’ — best first 7 days ever for a Netflix film!” said the the streaming service on social media.
