However, there is more to the video than what it appears. In the video, which first appeared online over two years ago, the snake indeed appears to be massive.
According to Snopes, fact-checking website, the video has been reportedly manipulated to make the snake appear much larger than what it appears to be. There is no doubt that the snake which got trapped is a big one, but it is not as big as it is manipulated. Likewise, the massive blue drum is also nothing more than a small pipe.
