Thailand experienced an unexpected event yesterday when “Spider-Man” came to rescue a motorcyclist injured in a car accident in eastern Phetburi province.
This Spider-Man is actually a famous flower vendor named Wasan Ketsuwan, also known as “Flower Spider-Man.” Every day Wasan wears his superhero costume and sells flowers at Tha Yang Junction.
In CCTV footage that captured an accident at the junction yesterday morning, a white pickup truck is seen rear-ending a motorcyclist, who cuts into their lane, causing the motorcycle to flip and its driver to bounce off the truck.
Seconds later, Wasan, in his Spider-Man costume, is seen running towards the injured motorcyclist to check on him while still holding his flowers.
The clip went viral today after it was shared on Facebook by the page of Tha Yang police, gaining half a million views and featured in local media.
Many netizens made comments to thanking Spidey for saving us once again.
In an interview with Thairath earlier this year, Wason said that he was formerly a Likay, or folk theater performer, before turning to a flower-man who cosplays as a gimmick.
Some people commented they’ve seen Wason selling his flowers in other outfits, such as Iron Man or a Minion, we can only assume that must be laundry day for his spider suit.
