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.

Woman Dies in Alaska While Hiking to 'Into the Wild' Bus | Time
Another 'Into the Wild' Pilgrimage Has Ended in Death | Outside Online



Another 'Into the Wild' Pilgrimage Has Ended in Death,a 24-year-old Belarusian woman died while attempting to reach the abandoned bus made famous by Christopher McCandless and Into the Wild (2007).

Veranika Nikanava and her husband, 24-year-old Piotr Markielau, were crossing Alaska’s Teklanika River, just outside Denali National Park, when Nikanava lost her footing and was swept away. Markielau made it to shore and was able to retrieve his wife’s body downstream. He contacted the Alaska State Troopers just before midnight on July 25, and was retrieved by a police officer and volunteer firefighters on ATVs. According to Ken Marsh, a spokesman for the troopers, the couple had been married for less than a month.

The river is the primary obstacle in the popular but dangerous hike to the bus. It’s fast and cold, and can run waist-high or worse in high water. Sometimes there’s a rope strung across it, intended to help hikers. But that doesn’t guarantee safety: Nikanava reportedly lost her grip on the rope when she fell. In 2010, another young hiker, Claire Ackermann of Switzerland, drowned in the Teklanika under similar circumstances.

The bus sits 20 miles down the Stampede Trail, and roughly ten miles past the river crossing. A longtime shelter for hunters passing by in the fall, in the summer of 1992 it was home to Chris McCandless for several months. McCandless had been roaming and adventuring across North America for a couple of years before he wound up on the outskirts of Denali, where he hoped to survive off the land. He crossed the river and found his way to the bus in April, with winter still holding on. Later that summer, hungry and hoping to retreat, he found his way back blocked by the river at high water. He died in the bus in late August, and was found by moose hunters in September.

That's extra grim, considering how people who've tried to locate the bus planned to not to make the errors that McCandless led to his death, yet failed in areas and contexts in which he did manage to survive. The unfortunate thing about the movie is how misrepresented the danger posed by the river was. In general, I find it unfortunate that modern man is seemingly less able to accomplish tasks that would've been somewhat trivial to ancestors, but it just underscores the fact that hiking, hunting, gathering, fishing, trapping, camping, logging, planting, harvesting, milling, gardening and farming require various levels of training.

Come to think of it, four eighth graders trying trying to roll a portable hotdog stand down the stairs of an exit of a subway train station is not such a good idea, but this is a far cry from how the movies often portray protagonists succeeding at difficult necessary tasks.

I would agree. In the book, Christopher McCandless realized how dangerous the river was and that he had missed his opportunity to cross it. I would guess the crossing depth is no more than knee to waist high, but it is not depth that is the danger, but the speed of the current. Sadly, I doubt these deaths will be the last or that those making the 'Into the Wild' Pilgrimage will learn from the mistakes of others. I got think there were dozens of close calls that never get publicized.
