A driver got the fright of his life after a massive spider ran across the windshield of his moving car.
Queensland driver Nathan was travelling along a highway when the huge spider, believed to be a huntsman, appeared on his windshield.
In a video shared on TikTok on Tuesday, Nathan is heard screaming while he desperately tries to rid his car of the spider.
The male driver filmed the moment a massive huntsman crawled across his window while he was travelling down a major road in Queensland
‘How to make a grown man scream step one: let a spider walk across his windscreen,’ Nathan captioned the video.
The scared driver is heard yelling ‘F***!’ before turning his windscreen wipers on to try and push the spider away.
Nathan lets out another scream and yells ‘f*** me’ as the wiper pushes the spider onto the outside of his driver-side window.
Nathan initially had his side window down but managed to ‘hit the up button’ and close it before the spider could land inside the car.
The video has received over 250,000 likes and more than 3,800 comments, with many joking it depicts a ‘normal day’ in Australia.
‘Most normal road trip in Australia,’ one user commented.
‘Tell me you’re in Australia without telling me you’re in Australia,’ another person wrote.
A third likened Australia to the 1995 hit movie Jumanji, where a board game releases jungle-based hazards upon its players with every turn they take.
Other users found the driver’s reaction hilarious, likening his scream to that of Homer Simpson.
‘Lmfao I actually just peed that scream,’ one user wrote.
‘Ok I can’t stop watching and laughing. I don’t think I could get that high pitched,’ another user commented.

A third chimed: ‘I’ve watched this about twenty times and can’t stop laughing. Poor guy, I would have heart attack.’
Nathan explained the spider reappeared two days later and tried to get into the car through one of the windows.
Others advised Nathan to get a new car or take the vehicle through a car wash to try and rid it of its unwanted passenger.
Huntsman spiders are not venomous and are not dangerous to humans.
They feed on cockroaches and insects and can live for more than two years.
Huntsmans are likely to hide in dark crevices of bark or rocks and are commonly found hiding in cars as they look for a warm and safe environment to rest.
