Bary Nusz enjoys many activities including storm chasing, hiking and fencing, according to his Google+ profile. He also apparently enjoys terrifying trick-or-treaters on Halloween as evidenced by this YouTube video.
A hidden camera captures the prank's "first victim:" a pint-sized fairy of some sort who is so scared by the huge black spider that she runs crying from the house.
The spider appears to be controlled by someone inside the home who later attempts to soften the blow by wiggling the spider around. The little girl's mother eventually convinces her to return to the porch where she gets her candy.
The video has been watched more than 200,000 times on YouTube since it was posted on Oct. 31.
Nunsz wrote the video was recorded around 6 p.m. "It's normal that the little frilly princesses start out early. Over the years, we've always gotten the best screams and criers early on," he wrote in response to another user.
Trick-or-treaters, you have been warned.
But perhaps no Halloween prank is as comical (or cruel?) as telling kids their hard-earned candy has disappeared. This year, Jimmy Kimmel once again challenged parents to tell their kids they ate all the Halloween candy. The reactions are, of course, priceless.
