When you’re a TV weatherman, you have to be prepared to deal with all kinds of scary things: storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, and maybe some spiders.West Virginia weatherman Bryan Hughes hilarious reaction to the sight has left thousands on the web laughing.
The video starts with Hughes happily bantering with his colleagues at WOWK when the map behind him switches to the ‘Weather Eye’ camera showing a foggy cityscape – and the huge silhouette of a spider on the lens. The poor guy, who’s stood in front of a green screen and still chatting away, has no idea what he’s in for, until colleagues excitedly tell him to take a look.
He then glances down at the monitor showing him what the viewers are seeing and the effect is instantaneous. As soon as he realize what he’s seeing, he lets out a high-pitched shriek, flailing his hands and backing out of view of the camera while his colleagues laugh.
