A weather woman freaked out on live TV when the video weather footage behind her contained a spider.

A meteorologist in British Columbia named Kristi Gordon got freaked out by a spider the other day . . . even though it wasn't even in the room with her.

During her weather report, a video showing current conditions popped up behind her.  And the spider was on the lens, so it was right about where Kristi's HEAD was.  And even though it was only on the video, she freaked out and ran off-camera while the anchors made fun of her.

Arachnophobia is the fear of spiders and it is a true phobia... but watching this video will certainly put a smile on your face.
