If this NYC cabbie thought a stunt like this and a viral video's 15 minutes of fame would catapult him out of the job and into something more glamorous, we're pretty sure he's wrong!
It WILL probably catapult him into a different job, though — because he could lose his license for using a rented PYTHON to freak out customers and film it (below)! Just not the job he wants!
