Accidentally watching Ghostwatch as a 10-year-old, not realising it was fiction, resulting in not being able to sleep for a long time afterwards and being so off-put by scary TV / film that I didn’t even watch Jurassic Park until I was an adult.
Came here to post this. And to offer what I thought it actually was as a child. Not an upside down chin, which it clearly is, but a knee.
Don’t know how I imagined they got a mouth on there. A knee. Took me years to realise what it really was.
Get yourself to the things you’ve been slow to realise thread, stat.
Dunno why it popped into my head when I saw the thread title. Not thought about those adverts for yeeeaaarrrss.

Not sure if “refrain” is the right term. The little 10-note bit that pops up every now and then. Teeth on edge.
sounds like it’d rub me up the right way

Unrelated but same era, was there an advert for a VHS tape with a skeleton in the ad?
