Let’s meet Oli Wardrope. That’s him wrestling a six-foot python out from under his family’s truck casually before he has to head to school.

I’m finding it hard to think of a more classically Aussie moment than this teen. Here’s the original video, uploaded to Facebook earlier this week in the Queensland summer. The uploader’s avatar, if you’re curious, is a gleaming green muscle car.

The caption is as to-the-point as Oli’s before-school wranglin:

Oli the snake boy wrangles a carpet snake caught up under a Cruiser before going to school


I’m not sure it gets more low-key than this.
