Reptile Rock.

You guys know about Snakes on a Plane, right?

A quick breakdown:

Samuel L. Jackson is starring in a movie in which terrorists unleash - you guessed it - snakes on a plane. It caused a sensation in blogland when an L.A. script doctor documented the flick's curious birth.

From there, it became an underground sensation, with copious fan-made trailers, merch and what-have you.

New Line Cinema, who had considered changing the title of the film to Pacific Air 121, decided to embrace the phenomenon. Fans have even managed to get a line in the script. Reportedly,  Jackson actually says, "I've had enough of these motherfuckin' snakes on this motherfuckin' plane!"

Now the studio is hosting a contest in which the best SOAP-inspired, fan-created tune will be played over the movie's end credits.

Hey, I should get on that!

An associate of mine - Dusted's Micheal Cramer - has already turned in his composition.

You can vote for it here.
