YouTube Removes 'The Nun' Ad For Being Too Terrifying?
The Nun is one of this year's most anticipated horror flicks and the producers of the film wasted no time to inflict fear and shock on its viewers just months before its release.
A YouTube ad for the film recently surfaced and while it may look like a typical teaser promo, the ad is apparently a good old Jump Scare which left viewers in a state of shock.
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— apple 🍎 (@bbydvas) August 12, 2018
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— Team YouTube (@TeamYouTube) August 14, 2018
YouTube quickly took action and removed the Jump Scare ad after several complaints. According to them, the ad has violated their "shocking content policy".

Can I sue Youtube if I have a heart attack because of their ads on The Nun?— sherryptk🎀 (@sherry_ptk) August 12, 2018
Want to see if I can for tuition money, not to advertise that dang movie 🙃
hey whoever thought putting a jumpscare as an ad was a good idea needs to be blacklisted from the advertising industry— errorboy! (dalton) (@errorboy111) August 13, 2018
There are 8 second ads for both slenderman and the nun that are doing this on YouTube
this is how you get people to not see your movie
Even though the ad has been taken down, a Twitter user was able to save the clip. Watch it right here if you dare but make sure your volume is turned down.
