From the people who brought you last year's Tide Pod Challenge comes the latest challenge that discounts common sense and has prompted several warnings to avoid.  Last month Netflix released the Sandra Bullock thriller movie, Bird Box. The movie features Bullock living in a post-apocalyptic world where some kind of entity attacks people via their sight and causes them to kill themselves. In order to evade the monster and hopefully find her way to safety, her character does everything with a blindfold. She totes her two kids around, she travels in a boat and even shoots an attacker. This is course has served as inspiration for the viral Bird Box challenge where everyday people to don on a blindfold and attempt to do everyday tasks without sight. Shocker! The challenge has led to some unsurprising crashes and falls. It even prompted Netflix to actually come out and say that the challenge is indeed a bad idea on Twitter, where the movie has been tweeted about more than 8 million times in the last 30 days.
