Yep, that’s a freshly fried snake stuck to the innards of one Brazilian PS4 owner’s console.

The video was shot by an electrician who was given the console to fix after the owner said it had stopped working and was “releasing a strong smell”.

Suspecting some sort of electrical failure, the electrician opened the console to find the unlikely culprit.

It seems the serpent had decided to crawl into the PS4 through the air vents, before being fried to death once the console was turned on and the circuits were shorted.
