AAAAhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Spider! There’s a friggin’ spider on Facebook!

This is but one of the many exclamations heard across the social network as the (now infamous) Facebook spider crawled across millions of Facebook user’s screen.

Facebook fans weren’t the only ones screaming though. The crew here at Mindslap were shouting in excitement as we saw the view count climb and climb…quickly becoming the most viewed and shared post in our company’s history…and by no small margin!

“We were hopeful we could hit 100,000 views within the first 24 hours” said Steve Airola, Mindslap CEO and Founder, who created the spider post. “We would have never in our wildest dreams predicted we would hit over 1,000,000 views…let alone within the first 24 hours!”

From there…shares and views on Facebook skyrocketed…and in a short period of time. “Our website actually crashed the following day due to all the new eyeballs checking out Mindslap” said Steve. “We hadn’t anticipated the overwhelming response to a little 11 second video!”

Calls and emails began flooding in from social media giants such as Unilad, LADbible, and ViralThread requesting permission to repost the crawling spider to their networks on Facebook. We were ecstatic our little creepy-crawly friend warranted so much attention.

We’ve had over 11 million views and hundreds of thousands of shares through Mindslap’s two separate Facebook posts of the spider, but when you add up all the views from other organizations, it’s well over 30 million. “It was funny reading all the comments being posted back and forth from Facebook users scaring their friends” said Brandy Anderson, Mindslap’s Senior Project Concierge.
