| by Michael Allen

A Grand Rapids, Michigan, TV news station pranked meteorologist Kelly Smith while she was reporting the weather yesterday.

Unbeknownst to Smith and most Americans, Wednesday was "National Face Your Fears Day," notes Mediaite.com.

As Smith gave the weather report during the morning broadcast on Fox 17, her producers rolled footage of some big hairy spiders on the screen behind her twice, reports Uproxx.com.

Smith ran off camera both times and exclaimed, "I hate spiders!"
