Apparently, the Nerve Dare game in movie has a real counterpart, called Double Dog Dare. It debuted the same week as the movie.

"Double Dog Dare is a game that allows users to send and receive dares within the community on the app. They can potentially earn money after posting a video of the completed dare. Users start by daring each other to do things. The app has suggestions that range from licking your elbow to writing your name with your left hand to streaking in public."

It seems like it could have been sparked by Nerve as the movie was in-development for a while before hand or at the very least both share a common inspiration. Regardless, it would be safe to say Double Dog intended to piggyback on the popularity of the movie, Nerve

Netflix's record breaking movie, Bird Box (2018) has the streaming giant begging viewers to stop viral blindfolded ‘Bird Box’ challenges.

YouTuber Jake Paul walks through traffic, drives blindfolded in ‘Bird Box’ challenge

Everyone: don't do the bird box challenge it's dangerous

“It takes a special kind of moron to not realize how that could result in serious injury,” tweets one follower. Pretty stupid to do in first place, but also arrogant to put other peoples lives in jeopardy for your own vanity. Others noted that “Paul never vocally warns fans” against trying the challenge at home.

Why if you hear something very reckless and unfortunate done by a YouTuber heard in the news disproportionate number of the new items will include someone with Paul surname?.. I mean, despite their millions of followers I was completely oblivious of them before the suicide forest and now you just can't get away from them.

I had never heard of him before this Bird Box challenge stunt. I guess being an idiot pays well.

It is nice to see ‘Bird Box’ challenges are practically non-existent now.

I don't like those dumbies who want to copy each thing they see. Sometimes there might be a cool idea, but copying it is not creative, nor genuine. If they can't live without, they should try something new, preferably something that's creative, but not dangerous. ;D

I say standing in limos and Chucky... I saw a prank once on T.V. where a guy made this lady think he was killed by a Chucky doll... I'm all for practical jokes, but that's not funny.  The lady was really scared and terrified.

Breumaster, I like the suggestions. Have you heard of any moviegoers copying these scenes in real life? I  definitely can imagine both being a thing, but couldn't find any articles about the movie inspiring copycats of either.
