In anticipation of you know what, this week, we salute our favorite snakes.
Today: Snake Plissken, the inspiration for Solid Snake (Metal Gear Solid).
Long before Jack Bauer and Michael Scofield existed, Snake Plissken had 24 hours to enter a prison, retrieve a recording and save the president from Isaac Hayes!
16 years later, Plissken surfed a tidal wave through downtown Los Angeles and then shut down THE ENTIRE PLANET with an electromagnetic pulse.
Alas, a recent rumour that Paramount greenlighted Escape from Earth proved to be false.
