This Is How You Brush An Obscenely Massive Spider Off Your Shoulder

There are spiders, and then there are Australian spiders.

Seriously, this arachnid could star in its own monster movie, no special effects needed. It's HUGE.

Despite its absolutely cringe-worthy appearance, this man seems pretty unfazed by the unexpected visitor, even when it starts to crawl up his face. Watch him expertly brush the beauty off like it ain't no thang.

In this situation, remaining calm and collected was the best way to avoid getting bitten. Spiders that do not feel threatened will generally not attack.

Well done, sir, well done. Perhaps he should be the next Spiderman?

CORRECTION: A previous version of this post identified spiders as insects. They are actually arachnids.
