The video shows a large rat at First Avenue L station in Manhattan struggling to drag a pizza slice, double its size, down the stairs. We can all relate to this with our Saturday night drunken struggles after a night out.
The video has taken the internet by storm and racked up over 4 and a half million views on youtube in just a day!!
Many have compared the rat to Splinter from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle’s
Everyone is talking about #Pizzarat. But I simply see a hard working dad trying to feed 4 young turtles.
