Over the weekend, special effects artist Bruce Branit posted a video on YouTube showing what looked like a small spider crawling out of his ear, which he claimed he got from swimming in a lake in central Missouri.
The caption read: “Swam at Lake of the Ozarks last weekend and got a super painful ear infection. Totally blocked ear canal. Tried to use my phone’s camera to see if I could see anything. Found this.” (via: BranitFX&LP,buzzfeed)
