Facebook is often stocked with spider memes, spider stories, and the occasional spider confrontation (Ahhhh!). And it’s pretty obvious: (Most) people hate spiders. Some are even deathly afraid of them.

One man, Joshua Slice, invented a character named Lucas (and published a video on YouTube staring Lucas). This character’s cuteness is so OFF THE CHARTS that it may just cure your arachnophobia… for good!



Slice published the short on YouTube and in just a few days, it has 1.3 million views. Whoa. Slice wrote: “This is an animation test of a character I’ve been working on. I’m responsible for the design, modeling, rigging, animation, lighting, and rendering. The voice acting is provided by my nephew, Lucas.”


YouTube viewers’ comments are proof that Slice is onto something big here!

Erin Mc Cabe added: “Now I will feel eternally guilty if I kill one.”

This little furry, four-eyed character is welcome to hang out with me anytime! Watch Lucas’s entire video below and share it with ALL your squeamish-spider friends!
