Check out the Wild Wild Tarantula race on Sunset Boulevard

As we had reported last week, Warner Home Video had planned a Tarantula race on Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard to celebrate the home video release of Wild Wild West. Well, it happened, and you can see the invasion of the live eight-legged furry spiders, too.

Aspiring movie and television insect trainers battled to the finish with their tarantula teammates for the chance to win a $500 scholarship to further their exotic animal and insect training education at the entertainment capital’s Moorpark College.

You can watch a streaming video recording of the event that contains comments by actress Sofia Eng who played Miss Lipenreider, and scenes from the competition at Medialink
