It’s something that should go without saying, but Netflix is saying it anyway, don’t walk around outdoors blindfolded.

Netflix tweeted on Wednesday saying “Can’t believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE.”

The Netflix film Bird Box stars Sandra Bullock.

The characters in the movie have to wear blindfolds to avoid looking at mysterious creatures that have invaded human society. 

The movie is fiction but in the real world, some people have taken to social media with the Bird Box Challenge. The challenge involves people posting videos of themselves walking around blindfolded outside.
