Morning Laugh*: This Video Will Give You Night Terrors
7:30 am, June 21st | by Colette McIntyre
There is really no way for me to articulate my feelings on this video. Just know that when I first watched this clip, I couldn’t stop watching it. I sat at my desk and kept replaying the video without making a sound. After minute three of my marathon, I began to cough uncontrollably. I had forgotten to swallow my own saliva. I was so entranced and terrified of this video, I nearly choked on my own saliva. In short, THIS VIDEO ALMOST KILLED ME. (Kind of.)
If this video of a SNAKE OPENING A DOOR wasn’t horrifying enough, this is how Jenna, the original poster and the snake’s owner, sets the scene:
Bored of being in a dark room, she flips on the light, opens the door and bails.
This particular episode takes place at 1am. We were startled out of bed by a loud THWAP! Making sure there were no zombies, I put her back in the room, and set up the camera.
This is why we keep doors locked with her around. We don’t need her harassing the neighbors.
To answer some commonly seen questions…
No, there is nobody else in the room with her. Nobody propped her up. She learned how to open doors years ago of her own accord, and continued to do so. This video was recorded 2 years prior. —> vimeo.com/5085708
Yes, she CAN open round knobs, too. I do have a video of it, but it was taken on a Motorola Razr in 2004, so looks like it was recorded on a potato.
No, she was not injured in the fall. Her little snakey bones are very flexible, and surrounded by a lot of dense muscle. The only thing wounded in this clip was her pride.
The door handle was removed immediately after this clip was filmed. Cute as she was, pythons are destructive in their exploring and we didn’t want to wake up to the flat a shambles.
THIS SNAKE CAN TURN ON LIGHTS AND OPEN DOORS. JESUS, TAKE THE WHEEL!
