A sleeping man was abruptly awoken by a giant spider decoration in a hilarious prank video.

As Tom Barnett, 28, was happily snoozing in his bed in Swansea, South Wales, he had no idea he was about to have the worst wake-up call of his life.

With friends like Nicola Evans, Tom doesn’t need enemies, as the 34-year-old decided that she would place a giant spider decoration on Tom as he slept.

As Tom slowly began to stir, he saw the ginormous black mass sprawled on top of him, before throwing his legs in the air and screaming like a child, Tom quickly realised the beast was just a toy.

Nicola said: “I ordered the Halloween decoration from eBay and took it over my friend’s house to show him when he said his boyfriend was still sleeping, so I decided to wake him up.

“I have never laughed so much in my life.”
