A weather presenter on Canadian television network Global TV lost her composure when a spider crawled across the screen showing the city.
Kristi Gordon ducks to escape as the much-larger-than-life critter enters the screen just above her head.
"Oh my gosh, that was creepy," Gordon says as she runs across the set until part of her body disappears.
"Of course he had to be right on my head."
She shrieks and laughs as she ducks and weaves, and then walks out of the picture.
"I hate it. I can't stand it," her disembodied voice says.
Other members of the crew enjoy the disturbance, and one points out: "Kristi it's not in the room, it's okay."
"It just really creeps me out," Gordon says recovering her composure.
On Twitter she noted: "Embarrassingly not the first time freaked out by spiders, bugs, snakes and Halloween."
Global TV has even posted video of a few of Gordon's other uncomfortable moments.
