We all know the so-bad-it’s-good 2006 action film Snakes on a Plane. But the Samuel Jackson vehicle now appears to have a real-world sequel: a Spanish video that shows a man innocently attempting to take out cash from an ATM, only to discover a snake slithering out of the cash-dispensing slot along with the money.
The ATM’s security camera captured the wayward snake; before long, the footage turned up on the blog BoingBoing, and quickly went viral on the Web.
The short shows the snake, which got stuck in the ATM slot as it was poised to exit its nest of cash, peering out of the machine.
Someone tries to poke it with a stick, an overture that the already stressed-out reptile did not take kindly. The snake, which looks to be at least a foot long, lashes out at the stick with its tongue.
But in this animal tale, all ends well. The Caja Madrid bank customer got his money, and the snake was freed by police, who took it in a box to an animal shelter.
