VIRAL VIDEO: Weatherman gets a scare from giant spider

Posted at 4:32 PM, May 21, 2016

Apparently, meteorologist Bryan Hughes isn’t a fan of spiders.

That’s what viewers of Huntington, West Virginia’s WOWK learned on Thursday during a live weather report.

Apparently, a spider made its way on to the lens of a traffic camera just in time to make it on the news. When the spider was projected on to the green screen behind Hughes, it made it appear as the spider was almost as tall as Hughes.

As for the weatherman's reaction? Well, check the video above.

It's OK Bryan. We've all been there.
