One of the more notable ones executed was by Lionsgate eight years ago for The Last Exorcism on Chatroulette where they showed a young woman, trying to allure guys, who then morphed into a screaming face (See below).

"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". Apparently, the ad violated their content policy for being too shocking. The video features a volume button declining before a Nun pops up and screams.
