The Campaign (2012)
 
Spoiler Alert !

Some of these pictures and descriptions may give away plot details that you might not want to know before watching the film.

"May the best loser win."

During his campaign for office, Will Ferrell is trying to impress some fundamentalist snake-handlers so he picks up some snakes and says he could do it forever - "These snakes love me!" At which point, of course, he is bitten. The torrent of swear words that follows offends the conservative Christians until he claims it's a miracle that God has removed the venom from his blood and the blasphemy from his heart. Then he acts disoriented and stoned and jumps out a stained glass window. Despite the silly fake snake biting the arm shots, all this is possible, and snake-handlers are often bitten by the venomous snakes they handle. However, these are a mix of fake and harmless snakes. Nice use of a Gray-banded Kingsnake here, too.
