Video: Unsuspecting New Yorkers hail cab with live python inside and freak out
NEW YORK CITY — What’s funny to some may be terrifying to others. After using a live python to elicit reactions out of New Yorkers, a cab driver has come under fire.
Comedian, author and former taxi driver Jimmy Failla said he used the stunt to promote his book, Follow That Car.
“We’re trying to promote a book and have fun,” he told the New York Post.
Some of those who hailed his cab have other ideas about what’s fun — and hanging out with wildlife isn’t one of them. See video below. Warning: graphic language.
