Don’t Be a ‘Bird Box’ Challenge Buffoon
Netflix exploded with one of its new films, Bird Box. Naturally, as with everything popular, an idiotic challenge has followed.
So here's the thing: it's 2019. I thought we were all trying to do better in the new year. I thought we had agreed to leave the stupid "challenges" in 2018. Clearly, I was wrong.
The #InMyFeelingsChallenge had kids jumping out of cars and dancing in the middle of the street. It was insanely dangerous and stupid, but anything for a "like," right!?
Here were are just coming out of one wild ride of a year and we're starting off a new year with the same ol' nonsense.
Just in case you've been living under a rock, Bird Box took the internet by storm after people watched the new Netflix original movie. The premise is that there are these monsters, or powers, that as soon as you see them, you're basically possessed. You can't look at them or you're going to die. In order to save herself and a couple of kids, Sandra Bullock's character in the film has to blindfold herself and the kids as they take a journey to a sanctuary. Also in the movie, a few folks trapped in a house have to drive with all the windows blacked out to go get supplies. ALL OF THAT sounds dangerous.
Yet, we have people trying it. Just for fun. People are literally blindfolding themselves and trying to walk around. They're walking into streets and I even saw a video of someone in New York that fell down a full flight of stairs into the subway. There are even people driving! What in the actual hell are you all thinking? Why? In what way does this benefit you? I'll never understand it.
I beg you, though, can we please stop the challenges? I'll let this one slide if we all can just come to our senses and forget these stupid challenges in 2019. Let's ignore them. Let's not do them. Let's be normal people for once. Please. Don't be a fool, and don't do this Bird Box blindfold nonsense.
