A full-time japester has carried out a rather cruel ‘prank’ of sorts on the London Underground, releasing a tarantula on a busy carriage and filming people’s reactions.

The poor sods in the fleeing crowd all manage to avoid treading on the hairy beast and, even more surprisingly, nobody lamps the guy behind the camera -- who at one point tries to convince everyone that it’s remote-controlled -- that clearly set the whole thing up.

On the scale of terror, we'd place it somewhere between 'Tube Chat?' badge and fake bomb. [YouTube]
