You can spray some lube through the grill on the latch, or you can get on the lever on the latch with a screw driver to release the latch.

Once you do get it open, lube it good and work it free before c,losing it.

If you can hear the latch moving (under the hood) your still in good shape. Have somebody pound/pull/push/lift on the hood until it pops.

If you cant hear it than you'll have to get creative with screwdrivers/picks. All you need to do is get the lever that the cable pulls on to move towards the spot where the cable mounts to the latch.

Yep you can try the Fonz approach with a good bang to the hood while the release handle is pulled. If not like said above and go threw the grille.
