Described as crazy, I think it is. The snake looks amazing. The man looks stupid. He’s trying to be macho for the camera it seems to me. People do a lot of crazy stuff for the camera nowadays as it is become awful competitive on social media. There has to be great sacrifice in time, effort, commitment and one’s life ? to get that magical video that goes viral and gets the magic million and more hits.
This is utter nonsense.
Never try to be a Tarzan with king Cobras.

If the video does not play here have a look at this. It is better:
I think this guy knows that the king cobra is fairly retiring as a snake and tends to only attack people when it is cornered, in self-defense or to protect its eggs. King cobras kill around five people annually across its entire distribution from Indonesia to India which is about one-fifth of deaths by rattle snake in the US.
