YouTube is home for a lot of things: cat videos, dog videos, dog meeting cats videos, kids doing silly things videos. Though sometimes it can also host some of the most truly demented, yet ingenious videos. These videos pay homage to some of the campy movies from the 1960’s and 70’s, yet they have a fresh angle… and a fresh star. Take this one, for example. I was giggling the whole time despite its attempts to be scary.
We see a video that shows a mutant giant spider-dog breaking free from what seems like a holding facility. He then runs around and attacks people, spinning webs around them and then storing various body parts in a subway tunnel. It’s hilariously schlocky, with creepy mood music. This is also a video that I wish I had thought of years ago. Hmmm…. I wonder if the world is ready for… spider-cats!
What makes this video so hilarious is that the dog in the spider costume is some friendly pooch who just wants to chase people around… and they are editing it to make him look evil. The scene in the elevator? He’s probably licking the guy’s face like, “Why isn’t he getting up? C’mon dude.” I think I would freak out if I did see an actual spider-dog. It can stay in whatever country it’s in now…
I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when they came up with this idea. I would bet that alcohol was involved. “Hey, man. We have to come up with a video. I know! How about a giant spider that terrorizes a city at night?” “Nah. Giant spiders are old hat.” “OK, a giant dog terrorizes a city at night?” “You want something to terrorize a city at night… how about a spider dog?” “Spider dog?” “Yup.” “GENIUS!”
To say that this video went viral is to understate it. There have been over 168 million views since it was uploaded in 2014. What did you think of it? Let us know in the comments!
