Many people have a fear of spiders but did you ever wonder where their arachnophobia came from? Well thanks to a new video, we might have the origin story for one person. A mom played a little prank on her son and to say he freaked out is an understatement. What she did was show him how he looked on her phone, only she used a Snapchat filter that put a massive tarantula on his face. As the spider crawls around the boy's head, he cries in fear and, unsure of what's happening, swats at the computer generated image. His mom adds to the anxiety, screaming and encouraging him to get it off.
While the quick clip cuts off before we see what happens next, it's safe to assume she filled him in on the prank. Hopefully he had a good sense of humor about it and the traumatic experience won't haunt him for the rest of his life.
