Netflix warned people not to do the “Bird Box” challenge but Jimmy Fallon just couldn’t resist.
The “Tonight Show” host rallied the Roots and Steve Higgins with hopes of surviving the horrors hidden within NBC Studios.
“I’m only going to say this once: We are going on the trip now but you have to do every single thing I say,” he tells the group. “And here’s the most important thing: Under no circumstance are you allowed to take off your blindfold. If we look at what’s out there, we will not make it. We cannot look.”
The quartet stumble their way through the hallways of Studio 6B and ultimately find refuge in a dressing room. Or so they thought. Fallon, the Roots, and Higgins are confronted by Lindsay Lohan. She coaxes them into dancing with her, promising to have “fun.” Everyone but Questlove obliges.
“Bird Box” has been a major talking point for Netflix ever since its premiere in December. The post-apocalyptic horror stars a heavyweight cast, including Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes, Sarah Paulson, John Malkovich, Lil Rel Howery, and Machine Gun Kelly.
The film received mixed reaction from critics but Netflix is boasting “Bird Box” is one of the streaming service’s most accomplished movies ever.
