Snake-bitten man karate kicks customer in internet café

snake bite thailand internet cafe

An internet café in southern Thailand became the scene of a slapstick comedy show when a huge snake came in through the front door.

The snake appeared to come out of nowhere and latched onto the bottom of an unsuspecting patron, and in his surprise he began an impromptu acrobatic routine in an effort to get it off.

The man is in such a frenzy that he fails to notice other customers in the café, giving one unlucky punter a karate kick to the chest.

He then falls over and is successful in finally getting the snake off, before running away to laughter from some of the other customers.

It is believed to be a rat snake, which is not poisonous and usually constricts its prey to kill it.

Video of the comic incident has been viewed online more than 5 million times.
