The mixed-breed dog is named Chica, and she's wearing a custom-made costume.
In the video, the dog can be seen sneaking up on unsuspecting citizens, who run away in terror.
The video is the brainchild of SAWardega who claims that "insane people are the best" and that we shouldn't "take life so seriously" on his Facebook page.
“Preparation for the film began a few months ago: I found a cheap faux fur, and I carried it to the seamstress. I told her the idea, but the first results were not satisfactory,” Wardega told the Today Show.
“We changed the costume three times and finally managed to create something light and good-looking.”
So, what do you think? Is the Spider Dog prank hilarious or cruel?
