I am a fan of Mr. Kings work.

My 6 year old nephew was looking forward to see the upcoming animated movie, Finding Dory. But after seeing the television commercial for END OF WATCH now has a fear of fish.

I hope this message gets to Mr. King and his publishers to reconsider running this spot when children might be watching. We saw it around 7:30am during the morning talk shows.

Please pass this message to whomever might be able to make a difference.

My first thought was, "There's a commercial?? I must watch!" I did. I agree that it's scary and I am sorry that it frightened the little boy. I have to say that I don't let my 12 year old daughter watch much live TV so that we can fast forward through commercials for this reason. I sound like an little old lady (I'm 44) but "back when I was a kid" there did seem to be stricter guidelines about when certain shows and commercials aired. Risque' or frightening was for late night TV. Now, it seems that anything goes at any time.

...this is all I found....it's not that frightening-but I only act like a 6 year old....
That's the commercial I watched :) Maybe I wouldn't have been so effected by it if I hadn't just finished reading End of Watch but watching that piranha type goldfish weave it's way through the mind looking for the control center and finding it as the announcer says, "all this one has to do is get inside your head and drive you out of your mind" creeped me out big time :)

This sounds really silly but I'm afraid of mind control and body snatchers. I would NEVER volunteer to be hypnotized lol.

I thought the commercial was very effective :)
