AUSTIN (KXAN) — A “mutant giant spider dog” gets to weaving a very tangled, terrifying web. In all reality, it’s someone’s dog dressed up like a giant tarantula — playing pranks on innocent, unsuspecting people. All the while, the poor puppy has no idea it has such powers. It likely just wants to play.
The surprises also come at night or in extremely shady places — like in an elevator where the spider is found hovering over a person’s body. The two women who stumbled upon that scene bolted out of there faster than lightning.
But another guy toward the end of the video didn’t have the same luck. He was walking down some stairs minding his own business in a very poorly lit passageway when he sees a web — with gory, (albeit fake) body parts hanging from it. He stops to check it out to inspect it a bit more closely – even takes time out to snap a picture and record it on his phone.
Suddenly, spider dog appears from out of nowhere over his shoulder. The man jets off in the other direction, only to get caught in spider dog’s giant web. Entangled, he tries his best to get out of there.
This video has more than 95 million views, and it was posted just earlier this month. It’s virality proves that people love to get their laughs, especially when prime pranking season is just around the corner.
