A new fear has been unlocked for viewers of a viral video that shows a snake slithering onto a bedroom ceiling fan.

In a bizarre and unexpected incident, a clip that is racking up views on social media shows a snake making a surprising appearance inside an Alabama resident's bedroom. The jaw-dropping footage, shared on TikTok by user Lupita Garcia (@lupitasheila), is currently captivating viewers across the globe.

The video begins in somewhat of a playful manner, with the camera panning to a bedroom ceiling fan. As the recording continues, the snake suddenly emerges from the base of the fan, startling both the homeowner and the person behind the camera. The unexpected encounter quickly takes a comedic turn as the snake attempts to maneuver onto the rotating fan blades, only to be repeatedly bumped on its head.

What happens next is truly astonishing. Determined to escape its predicament in pure YOLO fashion, the serpent lunges forward, propelled by the fan's motion. In an unexpected turn of events, it is whipped by the blades and thrown directly toward the person recording the video, capturing their shocked reaction on film while jump scaring anyone who is watching (including me).

According to Garcia's account, the incident took place in Alabama, leaving her equally surprised and amazed that the snake managed to survive its airborne adventure. The exact species of the snake remains unidentified.

The video, which has spread like wildfire across various social media platforms, has garnered mixed reactions from viewers. Some have found the peculiar situation amusing, appreciating the unexpected comedy of the snake's encounter with the fan. On the other hand, there are those who have been utterly terrified by the footage, deeming it "nightmare fuel."


Internet users have flooded the comments section, expressing their contrasting emotions and sharing their own experiences with encounters involving unexpected wildlife. As the video continues to circulate, it serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of the animal kingdom and the ability of social media to quickly disseminate extraordinary moments.


After all, we literally have a bear that is still going viral after emerging from the Gulf of Mexico in Destin over the weekend.

While the snake's escapade may have been unsettling for those involved, it will more than likely never be forgotten by anyone who viewed the clip as I head over to make sure all of my ceiling fans are sealed tightly and intact.
