Meteorologist freaks out in live TV prank

Did anyone else know it was National Face Your Fears Day on Tuesday?

Apparently, Tuesday was National Face Your Fears Day-- I celebrated unknowingly by waking up and bravely approaching the day, knowing that each second brought me slightly closer to death's lonely darkness.

Kelly Smith, a meteorologist for local Michigan station Fox 17, was not as proactive. Her coworkers, knowing her fear of spiders, replaced the usual traffic and wind pattern graphics expected to be on the green screen during the weather report with her biggest fear: hairy spiders crawling all around.

She screamed! On live TV! Priceless.
