Netflix's 'Bird Box' Inspired Some Really Gay Memes

Netflix Wants People to Stop Hurting Themselves with the 'Bird Box' Challenge

Bird Box is the latest film to spawn a meme-related challenge - and the Bird Box Challenge is, apparently, the latest social media craze to spawn injuries.

In the "Bird Box" film, which has had 45 million views according to Netflix, characters wear blindfolds in order to not see an entity that makes people have hallucinations.

"Can't believe I have to say this", a spokesperson on the official Netflix Twitter account tweeted out.

Directed by Susanne Bier, the movie follows a blindfolded family - a woman (Sandra Bullock) and two children - as they navigate a post-apocalyptic world where one's sense of sight can actually get you killed.

Social media has been taken over by memes of Netflix's horror-movie offering Bird Box, and now things are getting to the next level.

Ahead of Netflix's announcement, however, there were plenty of people who were determined to try out the #BirdBoxChallenge, often with hilarious - and cringeworthy results.

In Bird Box, the Marjorie character has no choice but to be rough with her kids, especially considering it's a matter of life or death for her and her children. While many of these videos are amusing to watch, Netflix wants to be sure that people are being careful and that no one winds up hurting themselves.

Although Netflix was undoubtedly trying to be helpful (and ward off potential lawsuits), the post may have inspired some Twitter users to attempt the challenge.

Here are some of the funniest (and gayest!) memes inspired by the movie.

"The only Bird Box challenge that should exist", she wrote.
