YouTube is having ‘nun’ of it
‘The Nun’ is the fifth installment in ‘The Conjuring’ series and is rumored to be the scariest movie in a long time.
As expected, the trailers and the promos would be scary (it’s a horror movie, duh), but one of the movie’s ads was considered too terrifying, to the point that YouTube had to pull it off their website.
It got so bad that someone on Twitter made a PSA that went viral
WARNING! If you see an ad on youtube with the volume sign 🔊🔉🔇 being turned down and nothing else, ITS A JUMPSCARE for the new NUN movie coming out. i advise you look away and/or turn down the volume if you have anxiety or just straight up hate jumpscares, pls rt to save a life

…that YouTube eventually had to pull it down
Appreciate you bringing this to our attention! This ad violates our shocking content policy and it's no longer running as an ad. More info here: https://t.co/dOUocjUevh

So is it really that bad? As someone who’s seen his fair share of horror movies, I would say it depends on the circumstances.
If the ad popped up in the middle of the afternoon, then it’s pretty meh. But if it’s late at night, and this fucker randomly pops up, then I’d probably be scared shitless too.
