It’s a video that is sure to make people with arachnophobia squirm.

A Vine video that is going viral on the Internet Friday shows a man touching a black patch on what looks like a piece of playground equipment.

The black blob looks like a caterpillar or a large fur ball, but after its disturbed, the ball explodes into hundreds of spiders.

The spiders are thought to be daddy longlegs.

The video was uploaded last week by Mexican Paglo Barroeta.  It’s not clear where the incident was filmed.
