Snake (from Okie Mug alignments) is an overloaded strong-side zone dog that includes Nickel and Strong-Safety blitz from the strongside.
The nickel is aligned to strength and the Mike LB sets the blitz direction to the Nickel (Gold / Red Call). Once the blitz is set, nobody runs with motion. The defensive line aligns in the Okie Front and the Joker always aligns away from the Nickel.
Coverage is Ray/Lou to strength (the weak-side DE in Drop System). The Joker hot-drops to side of the Call (Gold /Red) and relates to the first on-the-line Receiver (threaten the weak-side A-Gap).
