Disapproved Ad for my video about the new Sonic th Hedgehog game

I really have no clue why my ad for such a video is disapproved. The reasoning was "Shocking Content", so am I correct that google finds it shocking that Sonic is still alive after some horrible games?

I honestly see no reason why my ad would get blocked. In the video, I talk about the upcoming game, how Sonic's gameplay will be like and that there will be a new, third character involved.

The ad is titled "Sonic Forces - Classic Gameplay, Third Character" and the description lines are "Classic Sonic Gameplay revealed!" and "Third Character Teased!".

 

The ad is obviously taken down wrongly. What can I do to make it not register as "shocking"? Is there any actual way to appeal or am I in the mercy of Google bots that have falsely flagged my ad already?
