Netflix issues a PSA for the newest social challenge.

People have no shortage of crazy, dangerous challenges to try performing. From the cinnamon challenge to the milk gallon challenge to the tide pod challenge, there seems to be a new crazy test people put themselves through each week. And now, the Netflix hit Bird Box has inspired the newest challenge.

You may have seen memes for the show, usually featuring Sandra Bullock, who plays the protagonist, in a blindfold. For those unfamiliar with the show, and without giving spoilers, the plot requires the characters to navigate the world blindfolded in order to protect themselves from a monster that requires it's victim's sight. However, reality has seen people choosing to navigate their surroundings blindfolded as well. Several social media posts can be seen of people walking around their homes, walking around crowded cities, and even attempting to drive while deprived of sight. 

Netflix has already taken to Twitter to urge people to not take this challenge. With any luck, their advice will be heeded. But it goes to show there really isn't much of a limit on the weird challenges people will choose to take for social media engagement. 2019 has just started, but hopefully this challenge doesn't make it through the year.
