This Video Of A ‘Gigantic’ Spider Hunting A Cop Has Left The Internet Baffled

This Video Of A ‘Gigantic’ Spider Hunting A Cop Has Left The Internet Baffled

A terrifying video has been doing the rounds online, as it appears to show a US police officer being stalked by one gigantic spider. When we say gigantic, we mean the size of a golden retriever. Take a look for yourself.

As you'll see by the footage, the unsuspecting cop is simply carrying out a routine check, unaware of the eight-legged freak slowly making its way towards him from the left of the dashcam.

But before you go adding America to your NOPE list, we should point out that all is not what it seems.

Although the footage looks like a scene from the latest B-movie release (Mega Cop vs. Super Spider?), thankfully it's not a giant arachnid at all. It is, of course, just a regular-sized spidey crawling across the windscreen of the parked cop car from where the footage is being shot.

It just happened to crawl past at the right place, at the right time, giving it the appearance of being terrifyingly massive.

The clip was posted to Facebook by the Fulshear Police department, with the caption: "Who needs Hollywood special effects?

"This little guy was positioned perfectly on the windshield of the patrol car and gave our clerk, who was reviewing the video, quite the 'Halloween scare'."

The video has been viewed more than 32,000 times since it was posted and has many viewers chuckling to themselves in the run-up to Halloween.

One commenter wrote, "I hope the clerk got a raise," while another said, "I would NOT get back into that squad! Lol."

And a third added: "This is too adorable! I loved it. Thank you for the much-needed giggle today!" Unpopular opinion, or what?

Although this is just an illusion, if the footage were taken in, say, Australia, it wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility. Have you seen the size of the beasts they call spiders over there? Just check out this spindly bugger, who was so big it freaked out a dude's cat.

And if that weren't enough nightmare fuel for you, just take a look at this gargantuan monster chowing down on an actual lizard. You're welcome.
