Spotify Ad is so scary I didn't want to watch it. It was first uploaded on May 27, 2018 for some reason as this couple is listening to Camila Cabello's song Havana a creepy doll appears. Stereogum reports, "The fact that the ad was set inside a home, including a bedtime setting, and featured a doll, meant it was particularly likely to cause distress to children who saw it."
Spotify responded to the ruling, stating: "We acknowledge the ruling from the ASA and regret any distress the ad may have caused the complainant."
While it's freaked out of those who have seen it, Spotify say this wasn't supposed to be the case, as the advert was "intended to be a humorous ad that demonstrated just how catchy some tracks can be." In the same statement, the company added: "We take our responsibilities as a marketer very seriously and continue to be mindful of the ASA's guidance on the effective and appropriate targeting of advertising campaigns."
