Snake attacks man in Thai cafe

Drop kicking a snake may not be everyone’s first plan of defense, but to be fair: It works, or at least in Wiset Chai Chan District, Ang Thong, Thailand.

An oblivious customer at an internet cafe had an unfortunate run-in with a rat snake on the attack. In the clip, the shoe less man calmly wanders towards the front door of the cafe, and just as he opens it, a snake comes out of nowhere, and latches itself onto the man’s backside.

The man goes into full-blown freak out mode, and impressively dropkicks the snake, and another dude in the process.

Naturally, this freaked everyone in the cafe out. Most people immediately jumped out of their chairs as the snake disappeared below a desk in the corner of the room. Fortunately, most rat snakes are not venomous, and use constriction to kill their prey. Regardless, the incident was pretty terrifying for someone with even a slight fear of snakes.

Sorry, snake—looks like you’re gonna have to find another way to check your email.
