Meteorologist Kristi Gordon Freaks Over Spider On Camera (VIDEO)

Fear of spiders is beyond common, but usually the arachnid actually has to be nearby to trigger a freakout.

That didn't matter to Global B.C. meteorologist Kristi Gordon, who lost it in hilarious fashion on Friday after a spider crawled across the weather camera that was shooting the image displayed behind her.

The video has gone viral, racking up more than half a million views by Sunday afternoon.

Gordon has been a good sport about the whole thing but expressed on Twitter that it has been "embarrassing."
