    The Daily Online Video Fix: Spider On Drugs, A Classic

    The description line of the YouTube video reads, "In 1965 Dr. Peter Witt gave drugs to spiders and observed their effects on web building. This short film about the results of the experiment was created by First Church Of Christ, Filmmaker."

    I almost wish that the second sentence was not there, because it would have left so many people wondering if this was really an old clip from one of those educational nature shows (at first)...  The voice-over is perfect, the props and shooting style is brilliant.   They pacing of the jokes is also very well planned. It's not until we get the restraining order, the hammock, the crack pipe that this video goes into comedy genius.  As always, success is in the details.   

    To date, the video has over 16 million views.   I am hoping the filmmaker, First Church of Christ, makes a follow up.  This is too good for just a one hit wonder.
