Blindfolded Teen Crashes Car While Doing 'Bird Box Challenge'
This is the story of a girl. She saw the hit Netflix motion picture, Bird Box, and set out to simulate the quandary the characters face in the film. By putting on a blindfold and putting her car in drive. Not joking.
A teenage driver in Layton, Utah, crashed her car while wearing a blindfold – a stunt inspired by the Netflix movie "Bird Box"
"Bird Box Challenge while driving...predictable result," the Layton Police Department tweeted on Friday. "This happened on Monday as a result of the driver covering her eyes while driving on Layton Parkway. Luckily no injuries."
The blindfolded driver was a 17-year-old girl, and there was another 16-year-old in the car at the time of the crash, Lt. Travis Lyman of the Layton Police Department told CBS News.
The department tweeted photos of two cars involved in the crash – one was a pickup truck with the front bumper bent, the other was a smaller vehicle with the entire driver's side crushed.
Dear God, how would anyone ever think this was a good idea. O, sweet meteor of death, bless us with your presence.
Here's an earth-shattering revelation. Seeing is important. Especially while operating a motor vehicle. It's a tough one to wrap your head around, I know. It may appear as though Sandy Bullock gets around without her ojos. Except that's a film in pretend land. As in not real.
Keep in mind, this is the same group of youngsters claiming they can handle the world better than the grown-ups. The Hogg demographic, if you will. The only problem is the intricacies of life, such as "don't fling yourself down the road at 60 miles per hour without the use of your ocular faculties," seem to elude them.
Hopefully, the rest of the young folk in this age bracket aren't as deficient as Blindy McDumbass here. We're still crossing our fingers hoping Generation-Z will be the one to save America from our impending socialist sh*tholedom.
Speaking of that:
