If for some reason you want to experience that sensation firsthand, you can see the ad below, but we recommend avoiding it if you're prone to seizures, panic attacks, or just not keen on jump scares. Apparently, the ad violated their content policy for being too shocking.
The footage was flagged by a YouTube user who advised fellow viewers to "look away and/or turn down the volume if you have anxiety or just straight up hate jumpscares, pls rt to save a life".
Because of the fear the six-second clip has incited in unsuspecting viewers, YouTube has notably taken the video down from the site. This video does not auto play.
If you've been lurking on YouTube lately, you may have been the victim of a ghost-nun ambush.
YouTube did not specify what part of that policy "The Nun" ad violated.
On Monday, YouTube tweeted to @bbydvas: "Appreciate you bringing this to our attention!"
A recent ad for "The Nun", the fifth flick in "The Conjuring" series, is not the most saintly.
Among the website's no-nos: profane and violent language, gruesome imagery and "promotions that are likely to shock or scare". Set in 1952 Romania, the film follows the investigation of the mysterious death of a nun at a monastery.
