The venom from that snake (Daboia russelii) directly activates clotting factor X which accounts for the rapid clotting. In fact, diluted venom is used in a diagnostic test for Lupus Anticoagulant.

Also, did they immediately burn all associated materials afterward? This seems to call for some serious biohazard burnination.

Pretty sure this is actually a deleted scene from The Thing.

I've heard that Cobra parfum by Jeannes Arthes has a similar effect to blood.

But it didn't have a garnish. :(

More about lupus anticoagulants. Contrary to the name, they only anticoagulate blood in vitro, in laboratory tests. In the body, they promote excessive clotting and put you at risk of deep vein thrombosis or stroke. They can be associated with lupus erythrematosus, but can also be present without that disease.

I like all those dozens of pots behind the guy each obviously filled with some new horror and just covered with like a scrap of teeshirt and a cute sash and then I imagine him turning from the camera and tripping over one and unleashing the Old Gods on the earth.

Undubbed version wherein you find out what happens to human blood. Also Blood, Gallbladder and Venom.

I like how he flicked the syringe to dislodge the bubbles. As if he were about to inject it into his own vein or something.

Hope the camera guy got a huge bonus, because, FANGS DRIPPING VENOM IN YOUR FACE.

unliteral: "Blood, Gallbladder and Venom"

No way is that a real taste test! He didn't have saltines or something similar between each drink to fully cleanse his pallet. (brave guy!)

Nah, he's probably all "I applied to be the kind of badass that shoots film in a frikkin' warzone, and all I got was the nature channel" :)

I wonder what it would be like if you fried that blood patty up and ate it

There is a non dubbed version of this on YouTube, though I can't seem to find it at the moment.

A vile and heinous monstrosity known as black sausage, basically.

I adore how he taps the syringe; wouldn't want any air bubbles getting into that cup of blood!

I thought that maybe the blood would separate or turn black or something, or else the video would be, like microscope footage or cgi animations of exploding cells or something, but good fuck I was eating. Though it would hardly surprise me at this point if snake-venom-coagulated blood was a regional delicacy somewhere.

I've always taken a live-and-let-live attitude toward rattlesnakes out in the desert, but somehow this video makes me want to take a more live-FURTHERAWAY-and-let-live attitude.
