THIS might just be the most stupid video you see today


Astonishing CCTV footage shows the moment a driver spotted a spider crawling on his open petrol tank — and set fire to it.

In the video the man can be seen filling his tank at a petrol station.

He bends down to check something on the car and — incredibly — picks up his lighter to blast the offending critter away.

WHAT: The man bends down to his petrol tank with his lighter in hand

Unsurprisingly the car, petrol pump and surrounding area ignite and are swiftly engulfed in flames.

The gobsmacked customer runs to a nearby fire extinguisher and manages to put out the inferno.

Employee Susan Adams watched the bizarre incident play out from the shop window.

Bemused, she added: “There are some people that are scared of spiders.”

The man — who miraculously escaped any injury — even stopped by the Michigan petrol station the next day to do some shopping.

“He was sorry,” Susan said.

“It is just one of those things that happen — stupidity.”
