See What Happens When You Put a Snake in a New York City Taxi (NSFW)

03/13/2014 at 08:50 AM EDT

Warning: The above video contains strong language.

These New Yorkers have had it with these [bleep]ing snakes in this [bleep]ing cab.

To promote his new tell-all book, taxi driver turned comedian Jimmy Failla drove a yellow cab around Manhattan with one special guest: a 10-foot albino python, which he delighted in springing upon his unsuspecting passengers shortly after they entered the car.

Then he filmed their reactions, which as you might have guessed, were not 100 percent positive.

"You are disgusting!" one woman screamed at Failla after exiting the vehicle.

His response: "You should have told me you didn't like snakes!"

Failla, who does not regularly work as a cab driver, borrowed a taxi from a medallion owner for the video and kept the cab's meter off in hopes of avoiding punishment from New York's Taxi and Limousine Commission. Still, city officials frowned upon the stunt.

"This was monumentally poor judgment on the driver's part," TLC spokesman Allan Fromberg told the New York Post.

Failla faces the loss of his taxi license over the video, but he tells the Post he couldn't care less.

"[Being a taxi driver] is the worst job in the world."
