Netflix begs Bird Box fans: Don't try this at home

The movie stars Sandra Bullock trying to lead her children to safety while unable to see

The Bird Box challenge involves people blindfolding themselves as characters do in Netflix's popular thriller while they attempt common tasks.

Needless to say, there are a lot of fails. While many of these videos are amusing to watch, Netflix wants to be sure that people are being careful and that no one winds up hurting themselves.

There's no denying Bird Box has captured the imagination of Netflix subscribers, nabbing over 45m views in its first week as well as a few famous fans (take a bow Kim K).

The #BirdBoxChallenge finds fans of the film filming themselves running around blindfolded just as Bullock and her young co-stars do in the film.

Perhaps they should have seen it coming.

Chrissy Teigen couldn't help but tease her pal Kim Kardashian over her latest tweet about Netflix's movie "Bird Box".

Netflix officials have discouraged people from engaging in risky behavior.

Perhaps anxious about potential lawsuits, Netflix has taken to Twitter to issue a warning advising people not to hurt themselves while undertaking the "Bird Box Challenge", which is - allegedly - the latest internet craze now making the rounds on social media. People have attempted to emulate the movie by wearing blindfolds, staggering through their homes and fumbling around outdoors which, in some cases, has led to painful results.

"Who has seen it?" the KKW Beauty mogul, 38, then asked, prompting a handful of replies from shocked social media users, including Teigen.

Netflix is now begging people not to do the Bird Box Challenge.
