If you could gain the powers of any creature in the world,
what would it be? Not so easy, huh?
Well, statistically speaking, the odds are 147 to one that you would choose…
a spider. But guess what?
Its powers are amazing. This is Peter Parker,
applying the five steps
of the scientific method to– well, to whatever it is
that’s happening to me since being bitten
by that spider. I’ve already observed
the effects of the spider bite. So now it comes
to step number two:
hypothesis. That’s a suggested solution
for an unexplained occurrence. So I hypothesize
that I’ll be able
to embrace these powers in order to use them
to my advantage. For instance,
spiders are incredibly agile. Me? Well, check out
this video I took earlier
of how well I’ve adapted.When normal people do this,
they call it “par-kour.”When I do it,
I call it “Park-er.”Pretty cool! Am I right?Spiders are devilishly handsome. No need to enhance that. Spiders spin webs. Huh. Not so much for me. But that seems like something
I can create in my lab. Mm-hmm. The composition
of a spider’s web is made up of liquid protein
the more it’s stretched. [muffled grunting] Spiders have an easy time
making webs. I’m gonna have to work on that. A spider has sensors
all over its body
that alert it to danger. I’m getting better
at feeling them. I call it my “Spider-Sense.” [eerie sound] Uh-oh. Feeling it right now. But I don’t see any–
[muffled grunt, groan] Okay, I think I worked out
all the kinks. Now, if they only
just told time and played music, I could make a fortune. But can a watch do this? [grunts] I think not. [grunts] Ha! Touchdown! Or whatever it is
you call it in baseball. [glass shatters] Yeesh! Sorry. Wow. I can make
virtually anything. Let’s start
with something simple. [grunts]
Ah. [webs discharging] Yeah.
[grunts] Nice and comfy.
My own pair
of web boxing gloves. [grunting] [yells] Whoa!
[grunting] Still comfy. Okay. Stay focused, Pete. Something useful. [buzzing] [grunts] Flies are a spider’s
main source of nutrition. [grunts]
Come on! [gasps] Now I’ve got you. [grunting, yelling] [grunts] Ah! Think I’m getting
the hang of this. [buzzing] [buzzing] Now the real test.
Can my webs support me? And since I don’t want anyone
seeing Peter Parker falling flat on the sidewalk… Can’t believe I’m doing this
on purpose. [grunting] Hmm. Okay. Here goes nothin’. [yelling] [laughs]
Whoo-hoo-hoo! Huh? They work! I am definitely
getting the hang of this. Whoa! [thud] Aah! Wall: one.
