A viral TikTok is showing the very Aussie moment a huntsman spider terrorised a girl in a McDonald's drive-thru.

The video, titled “Drive through in Australia”, was posted by TikToker @saige.raya on Friday, and has been quick to rack up over 277,000 views.

The nine second clip shows the TikToker ordering some coffee in the McDonald's drive-thru at Altona Meadows in Melbourne, while a passenger films.

The driver is placing her order as the passenger screams and zooms in on a huntsman spider on the outside of the windscreen.

The TikToker attempts to tell the drive-thru attendant how she’d like her coffee made, but keeps screaming as the spider moves over the windscreen.

In the comments section, the TikToker told viewers the spider kept running at the open window every time they put it down to order.

But, she confirmed the drive-thru team member came to her rescue at the second window.

“She tried to flick him off the car with a straw!” she wrote in the comments section.
