Spider photobombs reporter on air

Spider Photobombs BBC Broadcast

Even non-human creatures are now getting into this whole photobombing thing. A spider recently photobombed a live BBC broadcast right as the news anchor, Graham Stewart, was reporting. The spider was certainly a distraction during the early morning segment of "Reporting Scotland."

The creepy-looking arachnid found its way to the camera. It came right into view and crawled a little further down the lens, where a tiny insect was hanging out. It seemed as though the spider was determined to get some food, as it headed straight towards the little bug and snatched it up. Once the spider got its prey, it retreated out of sight.

Stewart talked through the whole ordeal and seemed unfazed by the fact a spider had photobombed his report. That's probably because he didn't have any idea what happened at first. He later explained, "I was completely unaware of what was going on until viewers began tweeting us ... I hope our viewers weren't put off their breakfast ... I know the spider certainly wasn't." The clip was posted on social media and right away was a hit.

Aren't English accents cute! They are so popular here that they can be completely unoriginal and boring but the English accent will put them above thier American competition. Just look at pierce Morgan and Craig ferguson and the cook show host who yells at everyone. Thier English accents are so over pronounced you would think they dropped out of and old English pirate ship. Bloody Cheerios and all that sort of thing.

The reporter's accent is SCOTTISH, not English.
Craig Ferguson, now an American, is originally from Scotland, with a SCOTTISH accent, NOT English.

If you copy the cover story photo you will see the spider is not in it.
