Do you like post-apocalyptic thrillers? Do you love Netflix? Then you probably loved Netflix’s Bird Box. And A LOT of people loved Netflix’s Bird Box.
Netflix reported that it brought in the biggest seven-day viewership out of any other Netflix Original to date. More than 45 million accounts watched that movie over a week’s span. More than 80 million households ended up watching it a month after it was released.
Before you knew it, memes and Twitter posts started popping up everywhere of people blindfolded. You had no idea what they were about if you didn’t see Bird Box. It practically forced us to watch it so that we could be on Twitter.
1) What Came First?
Was it the movie or the meme. Were the onslaught of Bird Box memes and Tweets a result of the movie’s popularity or apart of the marketing strategy? Either way it’s too late, everyone is hooked.
2) The Real Winners Of Bird Box
Everyone in the rest of the world was committing suicide or enticing others into eventually commiting suicide. Except for the blind people who weren’t affected for their lack of sight. Some say that this aspect of the movie has relgious overtones that related to 2 Corinthians 5:7 “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”
What’s the first rule of Bird Box? Trust no one. Not even the children.
4) Not Even A Baby Deer
So, if you don’t know, invisible demons posess people who can see and makes them kill themselves or get others to look at them as to infect them. Some of these possessed people can get pretty slick. These sickos are using baby deer as bait/
Bird Box is giving names to the nameless. People are using the movie to help them name the nameless. Like this guy’s unnamed dogs.
41) Superbowl Bird Box
After Deflategate, no one trusts professional games anymore. Well, at least games that involve the New England Patriots. The Super Bowl refs are prepared for their game already.
42) Bird Box vs Oregon Trail
Wait a minute! Is Bird Box the Oregon Trail? I think it might be.
43) Sorry Dogs
I don’t know dogs would make it in a Bird Box world. All the creatures would have to do is put out a bone or some cheese and they’ll come running to see what’s up. Maybe that’s why they went with birds instead of dogs.
