Ever since Netflix started streaming their new horror FilmBird Box,” people worldwide have been participating in the latest craze. The “Bird Box Challenge” has inspired many people to do stupid things, while covering their eyes with a blindfold. The streaming platform took to Twitter, begging viewers not to try the dangerous challenge.

The reason for the madness is that Sandra Bullock’s character in the film had to wear a blindfold to navigate her way through a forest and dangerous river without seeing the monsters that would make her and her children commit suicide.

Jake Paul of YouTube fame recently posted a video, showing him and his friend driving a car and walking into busy traffic while blindfolded. Paul gave a disclaimer on the video, telling people not to try this at home. The disclaimer didn’t work, as recently a teenage girl crashed her car while participating in the challenge - luckily with no one hurt. The following are more examples of the continuing madness.
