Brian "Limmy" Limond is a Scottish comedian, actor, and web developer. He first became known for his website and blog. In late 2006, his daily podcast Limmy's World of Glasgow received interest from the mainstream UK media. Meanwhile his surreal TV sketch show, simply called Limmy's Show, became a national cult hit, despite originally only being made to be shown on BBC Two Scotland. It won the Scottish BAFTA award for Best Entertainment Programme twice and has reached wider audiences through DVD release.
With a lot of time on his hands, he spent most of 2013 on his phone, recording 6 second video after 6 second video. When Vine came to an end, Limmy had created over an hour's worth of nightmarish nonsense, improvised characters, and the one with the spider crawling out his mouth.
