That Spider Bursting Out Of A Banana Video Is Fake And Here's Who Made It

spider-burst.PNG

Scroll for video

First, the world’s deadliest spider was found in the UK. Then a black widow showed up hanging around on someone’s grapes. And now this.

When will this madness end? Surfacing over the weekend the video shows a pretty normal looking banana on a table. Normal in every single way except for the tiny, almost unnoticeable pulsating bulge on one side. A bulge that proceeds to bobble about for a little bit until all of a sudden it gives birth to a massive spider like something out of Aliens.



The whole thing is absolutely terrifying. But, it's also more than likely a fake, and here's why:

Firstly, the odds of noticing this small bulge and filming the entire thing at the exact moment the eight-legged freak bursts out is pretty slim.

Secondly, whilst it's biologically possible that a spider could survive from birth inside a banana, it's incredibly unlikely in the grand scheme of things. Especially when it has to contend with packaging and making it's way to and from the supermarket.

Thirdly, the video has copyright of Kaleb Lechowski stamped across it. A man, that a simple Google will show you is a CGI animation wizard. In fact as his tumblr points out, he creates and animates 'creatures of different kinds.' 

And fourthly, the video is uploaded to his own Youtube channel. A channel full of his CGI work. Did nobody think to click a few links for this?

 

Add in the fact that no details on where it was filmed are given and the fact that Kaleb himself has even admitted it's fake and... let's face it, fake. That said, we’re never eating bananas again. Kill them all with fire just in case.

And also, hats off to Kaleb Lechowski, someone give him a job in Hollywood.
