We’re rarely rendered “speechless” around here, but this? Yep. This has just about done it. Apparently jump scares, or videos/ads containing jump scares, are too much for some viewers on YouTube.
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

You’ll find the “offending” ad below.
Next up: a ban on surprise parties, a movement against Cracker Jack prizes, and a recall of all Jack in the Box related products that do not affect your gastrointestinal/digestive system.

The Nun opens in theaters on September 7th.
