Herbaria Calming Tea Ad, 'Fears,' Gives Us Nightmares (VIDEO)

An ad for tea is the last thing we'd expect to give us nightmares, but a new spot for German tea company Herbaria titled "Fears" is angling for that distinction.

The video, which advertises Herbaria's Calming Tea, features a frightening clown with sharpened teeth, a chainsaw murderer and the Grim Reaper drowning as giant tea bags weigh them down. As their struggling ends, the ad flashes its tagline: "Drown your fears."

We suppose the juxtaposition of clearly-not-very-calming imagery in an ad for calming tea is supposed to make us realize how much we need Herbaria's calming tea in our lives. That said, we're not in the mood for tea right now. We're too freaked out.
