This 17-second video will scare a year off your life

You know what’s coming—and you might have even seen this clip from 2008 before—but that doesn’t make the final shot of this 17-second video any less terrifying.

You will jump out of your skin. I know I did.

There’s no backstory given on the YouTube account responsible for the video—just 16.5 tense seconds panning over what appears to be an endless anaconda—and no word on the health of the cameraman. But surely there’s a lesson in here somewhere.
