Blues Traveler frontman John Popper is blaming an embarrassing moment with a cup of whiskey on a multi-legged creature.

TMZ got ahold of some footage of Popper on stage guzzling alcoholic refreshment from a plastic cup and then abruptly spitting it all out, but, using the hash tag "strangelyproud," he tweets, "Man there's some awesomely disturbing footage of me hurling up a bug in my whiskey on TMZ and it seems to be blowing up! Cool!" Just to make sure we all get what happened, in a second tweet he adds, "...but seriously, a huge leggy bug in the whiskey."
