Bird Box is a work of fiction - meaning it's not really possible to drive blindfolded with your windows covered and only your Global Positioning System to guide you.
Netflix issued an official statement via Twitter, warning Birdbox viewers not to do anything blindfolded.
The "Bird Box Challenge" is a viral fad that takes its name from the Sandra Bullock thriller broadcast recently on Netflix in which characters must stay blindfolded to stay safe from mind-controlling monsters that convince people to commit suicide when they look in their victim's eyes. Bird Box is set in a post-apocalyptic world where humans wear blindfolds to help them avoid seeing creatures which compel them to take their own lives.More news: WEATHER: Brace yourselves... it's going to get COLD
