LOL, Netflix just warned everyone not to do the “Bird Box” challenge

Whether or not you’ve seen the Netflix film Bird Box, you know what it’s about because of the countless memes that showed up all over social media. And in case you’re not aware, the film follows Sandra Bullock and two children as they navigate their way blindfolded towards a safehouse in the midst of a supernatural creature that attacks when it is seen.

The internet being as mysterious as the creature in the film, countless memes have sprouted online, many of them funny. It also sparked a challenge but Netflix is not having any of it.

Basically, the challenge, um, challenges people to do ordinary things blindfolded. The potential for danger is high, which forced Netflix to tweet, “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.”

In another, possibly unrelated tweet, the platform tweeted a photo of Girl, with another photo of Whoopi Goldberg as Oda Mae Brown in Ghost, where she uttered the iconic line: you in danger, girl.
