Junkets and starlets and snakes, oh my!

Most press junkets are the same old same old. Cast sits in front of the camera, talks incessantly about their movie until they're bored and that's about it. That's exactly the way things were going for Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolph and Maria Bello during the junket for their new film "Grown Ups" -- and then a snake slithered up. What follows is comedy gold. Lots of screaming, climbing up on chairs, and...well, see for yourself and click the link. (This picture shows Hayek in another situation suitable for shrieking and chair climbing, the French Open.)
