Why is it that old commercials that had long pauses scare children?

Like in general there were a lot of kids my age that remember back then being scared of those commercials with just like minutes of silence. Why are people afraid of silence? Is it like a biological thing?
Ex. I have a friend who said it was the Clap On! commercial
For me it was the old Look who's talking too! t-shirt commercial I saw on VHS

  • Commercials scare me too. They're so boring I won't buy what they push.
