"MANSPIDER!" is a Smosh video, uploaded on April 27, 2012.


Ian is playing Super Mario Land on his DS Lite when he suddenly freaks out over seeing Anthony wearing a spider costume. After telling Ian to calm down, Anthony explains that while at work, he found a radioactive spider and wanted it to bite him, knowing that he'd become Spider-Man. However, the spider didn't want to bite Anthony, so Anthony bit the spider himself, thus turning him into the half-man half-spider hero that he is now. Anthony declares himself as not Spider-Man, but Manspider (since he bit the spider first). He confesses that he can't climb up walls or shoot webs, much to Ian's disappointment. However, Anthony says that what he can do is that he can use his extra legs to hit people. He does this on Ian, who becomes annoyed and punches Anthony away to the floor, who cries that fists are his Kryptonite.

Later, in the park, Anthony is looking around as he thinks about events that happened to him recently. Ian kicked him out, his parents were killed in a freak thumb wrestling accident, and his life "sucks ass". However, he declares to himself that he'll be the one to fight crime and bring justice. However, Anthony is shown to be standing on the top of a slide, and he falls off before getting up and running to do his job.

An old man is feeding squirrels when Anthony punches him, claiming he was littering. A man (Lee Eisenhower) asks anyone if they want to go skinny dipping, removing his towel. Anthony says that nobody does before whipping the man with the towel, causing him to fall into the pool, shown from various angles as he falls and splashes. A girl nearby complains that she wanted to go skinny dipping. Anthony initially lets her, but as soon as she turns around to jump in, Anthony whips the girl with the towel, pushing her into the pool.

Afterwards, a woman spots Anthony, thinking that he is Spider-Man. However, Anthony punches her to correct her. He does the same thing when a handicapped man calls the same name. However, Anthony mistakenly punches an old man who correctly calls him Manspider but Anthony says he is Spider-man but then says "oh, shi-". Anthony then spots Billy Hamburger being bullied in an alleyway and says, "Why don't you pick on someone your own size?" The bullies point out that they are the same height and weight as Billy. Anthony challenges the two to a fight and charges in to beat up the bullies, performing an airborne kick. However, before the outcome is revealed, Anthony is shown on a stretcher being wheeled into a hospital's emergency room, and we can see that he is beaten, bloodied, and bruised as he cries, "MOMMY!".

A narrator then says, "And so ends the brief tale of Manspider. Hopefully we never see or hear from him ever again."

However, Anthony comes in and punches the narrator out the window. He then flips him off 6 times, one for each appendage he has. The "Manspider!" jingle plays one last time, but it turns into "ManspiDERP," giving Anthony and his spider logo derp eyes.

Deleted Scene

A guy paid a $5.00 tip for his wife and his own meal, but Manspider rapidly punched him for paying 15% in which he thought he needed to pay more.



Trivia / Goofs

  • This video was the last regular Smosh video prior to the release of Shut Up! Cartoons.
  • Running Gag: People mistaking Anthony for Spiderman
  • At 0:16 and 0:19, you can see the FCC logo on the spider, making it obvious that it's a toy.
  • At 1:29, after Anthony falls to the ground, a little boy was seen in the background running towards the playground, appearing to look confused when seeing Anthony in a spider costume. He is called "Bigfoot's Latino Child" in the bloopers.
  • Manspider was also in "GUYS' GUIDE TO HUGGING GUYS" when demonstrating "The Manspider Hug."
  • In most parts of the video, the fishing line that was tied to Anthony's wrists to move the four other arms is visibly seen.
  • When the camera pans around behind Anthony in the playground scene, we can see the zipper in the back of the unitard.
  • Billy is seen again since "Parents Suck!", but this time, with facial hair.
    • This is also the first time where the propeller on Billy's beanie hat spins.
  • In "REJECTED VIDEOS!", at the end, the REJECTED stamp changes to REGIS PHILBIN. A similar change occurs in this video, where MANSPIDER changes to MANSPI-DERP.
  • At 2:26, it seems Anthony has a boner due to the bulge he has after seeing the girl naked.
  • It is revealed in the bloopers that the camera man had fallen into the pool during the filming of this video. The crew had to spend time drying the equipment off to save as much footage as possible.
  • The pool that the man and the girl are whipped by Anthony into is the pool that Anthony drowned in from "Food Battle 2006."
  • The Manspider costume Anthony wears looks a lot like the unitards from "Unitarded," only with extra arms and that the unitard in Manspider is black and the "Unitarded" unitards are blue.
  • The bill's date at the restaurant was at the year 2014.
    • The bill was $33 (16.5 on the milk shake, 16.5 on the nugget in a biscuit)
      • If the bill was taxed, it would cost $35.56.
  • In the skinny dipping scene in the bloopers, if you see very carefully, the man who Anthony whipped into the pool is wearing skin colored underwear. This is an editing trick used in various Smosh videos, and in movies, to simulate actual nudity.
  • Since Anthony bit the Spider, the spider should have been the one getting powers.
  • When Anthony punches the girl the annoucher sounds like he said manspiter.
