In this mockumentary, a somber male voice-over explains a study that recently took place to observe the effects of psychoactive drugs on the common wood spider. Sounds plausible, right? Once the clip begins to detail the results, you see the study is even more illuminating than you thought it would be.

For example, the spider that was given THC – the active ingredient in marijuana – doesn’t build a web; it builds a hammock and sits around all day watching the hyperactive spider that was given caffeine.

It isn’t until the final seconds of the clip when you see “First Church of Christ” flash on the screen that you realize: you’ve been duped. You were not only entertained by this outrageous clip, you were just taught a lesson about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.

What a tangled web we weave.
