A woman is seen holding a stick in her hand and a boy is standing next to her in the 15-second video. When they unexpectedly bend towards a vending machine while both are sprinting through a tube, the woman violently shoves her stick under it. Then, a large number of spiders emerge from the area. Subsequently, they both fled from the assembly of spiders. This post is shared with a claim stating, “Oh my god, is this real?” You can view related posts with similar claims here, here, and here.

The caption for the photo read, “We did it again.” Additionally, a lot of hashtags were used in the posts, including #3dartist, #vfxartist, #spiders, #animation, #blender3d, #cgi, #viralreels, and #funnyvideos. When we expanded our search and looked into the user’s Instagram bio it read, “Nothing is impossible. 3D Animations & Visual Effects.”

The user is Berlin-based and also has a YouTube page with the same name. There are more such videos on his page.

All this explains that the viral video is fake and created with VFX effects.


Thus, we conclude that the viral video claiming to show spiders coming out is fake and digitally made with visual effects.
