Thanks to a spider crawling on the camera lens, a Canadian meteorologist's weather report was interrupted by her flipping out on the air.
Obviously arachnophobic Global BC weather woman Kristi Gordon was watching her monitor as she delivered her report last week, only to be tricked into thinking a giant spider was landing on her head. Because weather reporters are pictured against a green screen which is replaced by live images, the creepy crawly walked onto the outdoor lens, but appeared to be walking right onto her head, freaking Gordon right out.
"Oh my gosh!" exclaimed Gordon, who dashed across the screen scratching the non-existent insect from her head. "That was creepy!" She tried to resume her report only to spot the spider again, and scream in terror -- to the laughter of her newsroom colleagues.
Gordon apparently doesn't discriminate when it comes to bugs: she was also creeped out on camera last year when a bug "dive bombed" her in the studio.
