Scare Factor Edit
Medium to nightmare. The synth chord is creepy and it comes all of a sudden, so possibility of people being shocked of it is pretty major, and the red color scheme on a black background, and the dark synth bass drone (and the announcer in some cases) also add to the scariness. The close-up variant may also increase the scare factor for some. Low for the silent variant and for those who are used to this logo.
