What would you do if you hopped into a taxi and realized during the ride that you were sharing your backseat with a huge, yellow snake?

Comedian James Failla gave a handful of New York City cab riders that experience. He drove around Manhattan with a (harmless) pet snake, picking up unknowing passengers, who, for the most part, were less than thrilled to share their ride with a reptile.

Failla, a New York City cab driver-turned-comedian, filmed the experiment and posted it on his YouTube page. Because even if people hate riding with snakes, they love watching other people freak out about them.
