Buy a mystery box online can result in a good surprise or in disappointment. Buying one from the dark web… well that’s taking your life into your own hands.
A single flip flop, a mysterious 8th birthday card for a kid called ‘Billy’, unidentified pills and a blood-stained screwdriver.
These are some of the odd objects that have turned up in mystery boxes apparently bought off the dark web in the internet’s weirdest new trend. Mimicking the bizarre unboxing phenomenon of a few years ago, YouTubers have racked up millions of views buying unidentified items from the shady, unregulated corners of the internet – sometimes shelling out hundreds of pounds to get their hands on them.
One YouTuber, Jude Somers, has got more than 4 million views on his mystery box opening video. “It arrived today, I have no idea what’s in it. I just hope it doesn’t have a bomb in it or something,” Jude says in the video, after paying £250 for his box.
