Peacock Spider Dancing To The Village People's 'YMCA'


This is a video of a male peacock spider's mating dance edited to look like he's dancing to The Village People's classic 'YMCA'. I'm gonna be honest, if I were a lady spider I would probably find this little guy irresistible. I'm not a lady spider though, so I'm just going to continue splattering all his relatives with a shoe.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to lebeeps, who agrees if spiders really could dance to music maybe people would find them less terrifying. But they can't, so fire.

    This is what my hell would be filled with: spiders and the Village People.

    Look at it, though! In every single frame it is gearing up for a fight! Every spider, everywhere, just can't relax. They're in "Fight-to-the-Death"-mode day in and day out.

    That's a Salticid or jumping spider. Notice the big eyes, bright abdomen that vibrates and the black/white flagging on those legs that it is waving. Far from being a threat display, this horny fellow is busy shaking his stuff for the ladies. If she's of the same species, she'll see that and go catatonic - the female spider mating response.
