AIBU to be a bit shocked by the new advert which features a pretty scary "ghost" child following a lone women in a destered car park. It was on relatively early in the evening when I was watching T.V with my DD (14) and nephew (8). Both children were a bit spooked by was I !

I am shocked it was on early - my ds 10 would've freaked! I saw it the other night and it made me jump but it was on late so I just presumed it would be shown late in the evenings! What time was it shown?

I think it was around 7.30p.m.....was on Channel 4.

That should surely be on after 9pm??
Apparently there is a zombie one too?!

Well I didn't sleep very well last night, thaks to the advert <soft touch>. It is very creepy.

Was expecting to be a bit ffs hmm

But they are actually scarey, wouldn't want dc's to see them.

Where is happy twisty hand man who I fancy the arse off?

It was horrible - I thought it was going to be one of those road safety ones where the driver sees the child they've murdered appearing everywhere... gave me the creeps!

The zombie one isn't too bad, just watched it on youtubed, the other one is very scary.

My friend was responsible for that advert, he works there. I shall have a word.

Yuk to both

It is! I am a wimp, I cannot watch horror films.

I almost posted about it the other night, but thought Id be laughed at. I actually had a nightmare that night that my DD was the ghost and was standing at the side of my bed. I cant watch it now and scramble to fast forward then avert my eyes.

That one is pretty spooky

Is it supposed to be a tie-in for Halloween?

Not exactly likely to make me buy their products.

HornySwoggle Fri 07-Oct-11 12:48:21

umm if you do watch that link I posted fast foward to at least half way through it because nothing happens before then.

JambalayaCodfishDIE Fri 07-Oct-11 12:52:40

Oh my gosh, the little girl one is terrifying!!

TheTenantOfWildfellHall Fri 07-Oct-11 12:54:45

Not scary. My DD (5) was a little shock at the little girl one but then said "that's not real is it? It's just pretend" and then she was fine.

This is scarey.

HornySwoggle Fri 07-Oct-11 12:59:32

jesus wild things I've just spilt my bloody coffee on the sofa.

RhinoKey Fri 07-Oct-11 13:00:26

There have been alot of complaints according to the ASA.

Francagoestohollywood Fri 07-Oct-11 13:00:34
