Internet memes – first they’re funny, then they’re dangerous. The Birdbox Challenge, inspired by Netflix’s hit movie, Bird Box, has officially reached the dangerous stage in the life cycle of a meme. So much so Netflix had to step in to tell people to choose life over likes.
The Birdbox Challenge sees people blindfolding themselves just as the protagonist Malorie (Sandra Bullock) and her kids do in Bird Box in order to avoid seeing sinister suicide-causing creatures that roam around a post-apocalyptic world.
Well, we’re not here for the dangerous memes. We’re here for the best Birdbox challenges we’ve seen on the internet that haven’t caused anyone a life or a limb. Our selection of challenges were made with a good sense of humor and the odd cameo or two by well-loved cartoon characters. Check them out:
