"Okay," he said.  "So I was checking out these weird guys here..."

He showed a series of videos, following a man and a woman approaching various people who got into a van with them, or, in a smaller number of cases, left the van.  In a couple of cases, they gave something to the person they were dropping off.

And one of them was the Spider-Xenophobe.
