How creepy is this new Airbnb advert? (Video)

Sleep tight...

It’s probably not the best idea to give potential customers nightmares while also trying to sell them a place to sleep.

Airbnb have unfortunately terrified us all with their new campaign “Is Mankind?”, which includes some rather unsettling advice.

They are clearly trying to imitate the recent trend of inspirational ads in their latest spot, but they’ve left us feeling a little uneasy.

While you can see what they were going for, they clearly didn’t appreciate just how creepy saying “sleep in their beds so you may know their dreams” actually sounds.

Of course, many have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.
