Bird Box memes have been taking the internet by storm after Netflix released the popular movie on December 21. Bird Box, starring actress Sandra Bullock, is one of the most talked about movies of the year. The film is rounded out by an incredible cast, including John Malkovich, Lil Rel, and Sarah Paulson, all of whom do a fantastic job in their respective roles.
If you are a social media enthusiast, you have probably noticed that people have been posting about the movie non-stop. Your Facebook friends have been letting the world know that they are currently “watching” Bird Box, while Twitter and Instagram seem to be filled with photos of Bullock wearing a blindfold while trying to figure out life.
If you are unsure what the meme is all about, read on.

Basically, there is an ominous presence that is not visible to people. Those who look in the direction of the presence are driven to commit suicide. The reason this happens isn’t explained in the film (or in the book), but you can read some theories here.
In order to avoid falling victim to these creatures, people must cover their eyes. Many do this by wearing a blindfold, hence the memes.
And, with that, here are the top 10 Bird Box memes on the internet.
Perhaps one of the very best Bird Box memes on the internet is the one above. It shows the Malorie in a blindfold surrounded by pinatas. While the post wasn’t actually sent out by Bullock, it makes the joke that much more hilarious.
Another classic meme, Malorie takes on the role of people who are blinded to the “right decision.”
The two young children in the movie don’t get actual names until the end. Instead, Malorie refers to them as “boy” and “girl,” perhaps in an effort to break any emotional attachment. Because the film is so popular, putting “boy” and “girl” on a “best baby names” list is quite comical.
Just about everyone can relate to feeling stuffed after the holidays!
You probably remember those initial feelings of suspense that you experienced just after finishing Bird Box. Being frightened to open your door because the creatures could be outside is a legit concern!
There’s nothing better than a good relationship meme and this one fits the bill perfectly.
Another classic meme altered to fit the Bird Box theme.
If you are a parent, you can definitely relate to this meme.
Shrek has made a few appearances wearing a blindfold a la the characters in Bird Box. There are several different variations of this one floating around the internet, but the pizza one made us LOL.
And last, but certainly not least, a great representation of girl’s reaction to Malorie in that one scene that no one will forget.
