"Bird Box" is a recently released Netflix thriller starring Sandra Bullock in which a group of people travel blindfolded to escape a mysterious force that kills you if you look at it.

Netflix also had a message to anyone attempting to do anything dangerous while blindfolded:

“PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE,” the streaming provider said in a tweet Jan. 2. “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.”
