Look away now, arachnophobes.

This spider video is one of those you really want to stop watching, but just can't.

A woman went to hospital with a headache - a fairly common event that doesn't immediately scream 'good god, there's something horrific living inside my ear'.

But then a hairy white spider crawled out in sickening, yet oddly compelling, footage.

So many questions.

For example; why is that the more you stare the little guy, the closer to cute he is?

Look at him emerging from his mini craving trip.

According to The Indiand Express the woman, identified as Lekshmi L, was rushed to hospital in Karnataka, India after experiencing headaches following a sleep on her veranda.

Dr Santosh Shivaswamy, who reportedly treated the woman, told the paper it was fairly common to have people seeking medical attention because of a foreign object in their ear, but “it’s rare to see a live spider moving inside someone’s ear canal.”
