People who are deathly frightened of spiders typically have an arachnophobia panic attack when a spider is actually in the vicinity, but the mere image of a spider sent one TV news personality spiraling into a tizzy.
The show could not go on for Global B.C. Meteorologist Kristi Gordon, who lost it after a spider crawled across the weather camera that was showing the image used for the forecast behind her.
A distracted Gordon tried to continue her forecast, but the image of the spider, which was not in the room, threw her for a loop.
"It really creeps me out," she said.
The video, posted on YouTube, has gone viral with over 1.5 million views since it was posted Friday.
