Did anyone see the advert last night showing a terrifying little girl with long dark hair stood in a car park or something.

I first noticed it at 9.30pm on Channel 4 during Million Pound Drop. They kept showing flashes on the girl between the adverts themselves and she did things like wave and put her thumb up. She looked kind of like the girl from The Ring. Very very scary.

I didn't catch what it was about because my 10 year old son freaked out and started screaming and crying. I thought it might be promoting something that C4 are showing, but then I noticed the same ad when watching my recording of last night's BB this morning, so 5 are showing it as well.

Anyone got any clue what it was about and therefore when it's going to end?!

I think it's just your telly that's possessed, nobody else's.

Have you been watching any strange video tapes that were followed by a phone call? Something like this:

She was doing the Phones4U gestures so presumably it's for them.

I saw this, I was expecting a 'reveal the product' advert towards the end of the 'break'.

Perhaps the advertisers are getting us in the mood for Halloween already.

It's not that simple. The girl was using hand signals known in the occult fraternity. These hand signals are often sometimes displayed by performers such as Kanye West and even Beyonce. They are considered to be Templar/Freemason/Illuminati signals, and are as well known to them as the famous Masons' hand shake. So are Phones4U being disingenous or is the phone company in full knowledge as to the significance of these hand gestures?

Anyway, I've complained to the Advertising Standards Authority about it because I don't like the idea of children, pre the watershed, being scared by occult imagery firstly, and secondly, which appears so quickly, it's bordering on the subliminal, which is actually illegal.

Are they showing these during the day as well? I saw them after 9pm last night but not pre-watershed, which would be wrong as I could definitely see kids being scared by these.

I thought they were for a film or something.
