Just when you think humanity could not stoop any lower, along comes Jake Paul. The YouTuber made a video of him and a friend doing the viral Bird Box Challenge, despite the fact that Netflix has issued a statement pleading with the public to not participate in such challenges for the sake of their, you know, lives. 

According to ONTD, the original 11-minute video featured the men driving a vehicle and playing in traffic blindfolded, all while friends filmed the entire thing. However, the video has since been removed from Paul's channel. 

Of course, the internet never forgets. Many people called Paul out for this recklessness, though it's unlikely that he'll actually learn from this horrifyingly stupid experience.

For the unfamiliar, this is Jake Paul.

He's a big-shot YouTuber who, for some reason, has millions of followers. It's honestly a little puzzling.

You may recognize him as the brother of Logan Paul, who is also a popular YouTuber.

Logan knows a thing or two about controversy himself. Last year, he vlogged about a dead body he found hanging from a tree in Japan’s so-called “Suicide Forest.”

The Paul brothers aren't exactly known for their selflessness. 

After taking a three-week hiatus following the backlash to the suicide video, Logan returned to YouTube. And it didn't seem like he had engaged in any real self-reflection.

Now Jake is the one in hot water. 

He decided to take part in the Bird Box Challenge inspired by the hit Netflix movie. And the results are about as absurdly reckless as you can get.

Do NOT try this at home.

Netflix has made it perfectly clear that participating in the viral challenge is a terrible idea. It is not worth risking your life, people!

But, of course, none of that mattered to Paul.

According to The Verge, he took the whole challenge "one step further by driving while blindfolded and walking out into the middle of a busy Los Angeles street." The publication also notes that "even as a performed stunt, [Paul's] video violates YouTube’s community guidelines."

Really, man?!

Nothing about this was a good idea. Literally nothing at all.

The fact that this tweet is still up says a lot. 

Meanwhile, the actual video has since been removed from his YouTube channel. Promoting dangerous behavior like this is never OK, especially when you consider that many of Paul's fans are young and easily influenced.

Irresponsibility at its finest, folks.

No word yet from Paul himself, but that hasn't stopped the internet from (rightfully) dragging him for this stupidity. He risked not only his own life, but the lives of innocent bystanders as well.

People had some choice words for the YouTuber.

Where are the lies? Oh, that's right. NONE HAVE BEEN DETECTED.

We all need to agree on this one thing.

Let's be more wise and productive with our time, folks. No need to risk injury or YOUR LIFE for a shot at viral meme fame.

A new low, indeed.

This person says it perfectly: Walking into traffic in the name of social media fanfare is as pathetic as it is risky. Again, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.

Maybe this is the beginning of the end?

One can hope, right? Or at the very least, maybe Paul will actually use this as a learning opportunity.

But let's be honest, that probably won't happen. 

It's sad because it's true. Will 2020 be the year the Paul brothers grow up? Let's just say we won't hold our breaths.
