This simple spider prank comes from YouTube user ‘MagicofRahat.’ It’s an incredibly simple stunt that guarantees some screams.

Rahat sets up the prank on a college campus, carrying a stack of books topped with a plastic insect container. When he attempts to tie his shoe with his hands full, many good-natured people offer to hold the items for him. Because the insect container is so unusual, there is usually some small talk that comes up around it. Rahat points out that it has a crack in it and the spider must have escaped.

At this point, most people are anxious for Rahat to take the books and spider container back. When he goes to retrieve the items, he sticks the spider onto the hands of the unsuspecting victims and points out its whereabouts -- it always gets a scream.
