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!
New York City's Taxi and Limousine Commission has a say in the matter, and they're pretty much ready to slam the ban-hammer on part-time cabbie and standup comedian Jimmy Failla. It was all a stunt to promote his new book.
Here's what the NYC TLC said:
"This was monumentally poor judgment on the driver's part, and we are clearly going to actively question this person's suitability to continue holding a TLC license."
What if someone had a deathly fear of snakes?
Plus PETA isn't so happy with making the snake endure passengers screaming at it.
Yesterday,TMZ published a chilling clip capturing an animal trainer shoving a visibly frightened German Shepherd named Hercules into a pool full of water that was being churned by EIGHT motors on the set of A Dog's Purpose.
In a swift response from PETA, the animal rights' organization is calling for a boycott of the movie "in order to send the message that dogs and other animals should be treated humanely, not as movie props."
