Just Another Day in the Bible Belt: Watch Bizarre Saliva-Spewing ‘Exorcism’ Outside Starbucks

“We ask you to hug this man with your love, God."

An exorcism performed outside a Starbucks coffee shop in Austin, Texas, was caught on video, mySA reported on Wednesday.

In the video, a group of men can be seen with their hands placed another man, who is spewing saliva into a red plastic cup.

“All your legions of poison. All your legions out! Out! All your legions of poison out! In Jesus’ mighty name,” the apparent leader of the exorcism says. “You have no legal ground to be in here.”

“We ask you to hug this man with your love, God,” he adds.

A Reddit user Umgar took credit for uploading the video to YouTube, and insisted the bizarre scene was not “a student film project, prank, or social experiment.”

“Just the Bible belt,” the user remarked.

“I live in Austin and this Starbucks close to my house frequently has youth Bible study groups and prayer meetings going on there,” Umgar explained. “This is the first time I’ve seen something like this though. I watched for a while besides what’s on the video because at first I thought it was a joke, prank, or film project – nope!”
