Scariest ad of all time? Japanese tire commercial will make you jump

If you've got a case of the dreaded midweek slump, this commercial might help startle you awake.

(Get the kids out the room first. This one comes with a health warning. We're not joking.)

Japanese tire company Autoway Tires took an unconventional approach — horror-movie tactics — to showing the importance of having great tires in dangerous and unpredictable road conditions.

How scary? The opening message reads: "Not for the faint of heart."

Then comes the warning:

"Please refrain from watching the content if any of the following applies to you: Have any mental or physical health concern and may have to see a doctor regularly."

Autoway continues: "We shall not be liable for any injuries, illness, and damages claimed to be caused by watching the contents."

The warning hasn't stopped more than 1.8 million people from watching it on YouTube.

Turn up the volume, turn down the lights and watch the commercial — if you dare. (And be thankful that worst you'll have to face this winter is scary weather.)
