Snakes on a Train! Subway Passenger Texts While Wearing Live Snakes Around His Neck
A subway passenger was filmed wearing two live snakes around his neck while nonchalantly texting on his phone.
While this sounds like a plot to a possible Snakes on a Plane sequel, it was reality for shocked riders.
Nicole Brunelle, a finance industry recruiter, filmed the passenger on New York's F train, she told Gothamist.
She said: “I initially thought there was one long snake who had intertwined itself around his caretaker's neck. However, there were actually two snakes who apparently just really liked snuggling, as I should have noted from the two heads."
In the video, the unidentified man tells onlookers that the snakes are "boyfriend and girlfriend." He even allows another passenger to hold one.
The man also explains that he has to pull the snakes off him when they start wrapping too tightly around his neck, adding: "He'll choke the fight out of you."
The MTA has not responded to the matter but bringing an animal on a subway without a container.
According to the MTA's rules of conduct: "No person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container and carried in a manner which would not annoy other passengers."
