UPDATE. Phew, relax … it was a hoax !
If you had to make a list of the things you’d LEAST like to have in your ear, this is probably number one.
Yup, that looks like a spider peeking out of a man’s ear canal.
The gruesome clip was posted to YouTube by Bruce Branit, who wrote: “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!”
It’s not the first time an arachnid has been found nesting in a nice cosy ear.
