A bored Russian graphic designer who was unable to sleep and decided to make a video showing a monster climbing up a block of flats said he was shocked when many people really believed the video he posted on YouTube was real.
The image that shows the spider-like monster as if filmed with a mobile phone as it scrambles silently and slowly up onto the roof and then vanishes over the top of the block of flats has already managed to notch up an incredible 2 million views in less than a week.
And for its creator Dmitry Kataev, 37, the biggest surprise was that so many people really seemed to believe that the huge creature was real.
Kataev, who lives in Samara, a city in south-western Russia's Samara Oblast, said after uploading the video he had gone to bed, and woke up to discover it had already notched up thousands of hits.
He said: "I woke up early and couldn't sleep, and was looking out the window when it was all still and quiet and I thought to myself that if a huge monster would start wandering around, it was the perfect time as nobody would notice. As I couldn't sleep, I decided to create a monster anyway and uploaded it online.
"It was really easy, I based the monster on a stick insect with a few modifications, and after that it all went crazy."
And after the success with such a short amount of work, he is now working on a follow-up video and is hoping to cash in on the advertising possibilities.
He said: "Who knows, I might even go into the movie business."
