But their antics were far from hilarious as people could become seriously hurt, so Netflix has stepped in to plead for the games to stop.
It's a toss up whether you loved Netflix's latest thriller Bird Box, but the internet can admit that the memes the movie inspired were spot on.
In the movie, directed by Susanne Bier and now streaming on the platform, characters wear blindfolds to protect against an unseen force that seemingly takes over people's vision.
The challenge, which is becoming very popular on social media outlets, requires people to blindfold themselves like the characters in the sci-fi horror flick. They do so by using blindfolds.
Fans of the film quickly started sharing their own "Bird Box" experiences, including a group of friends in NY who were seen walking down the street blindfolded.
The Bird Box challenge is just one version of that meme, and it involves two things: putting on a blindfold, and behaving as if you are moving through an apocalyptic world.
