You guys, this is the most important thing you’ll see all day. A video of a rat carrying a slice of pizza down New York City Subway steps has gone viral, and even though it’s pretty gross, it’s also kind of awesome — just admit it!
Welcome to 2015…when #PizzaRat is a trending topic on social media! The hashtag went viral almost immediately after YouTube user Matt Little posted a crazy video of a rat carrying a whole slice of pizza down Subway steps on Sept. 21. Watch it here!
While most people might run away FAST upon seeing a rat in the Subway station, Matt opted to take his camera out and shoot video instead — and now we have this epic clip because of it. The rodent skillfully drags an entire pizza slice down a flight of stairs at the First Avenue L train station. How did it do that!?
But, eventually, it seems the animal gets a little freaked out and confused, because it ditched the pizza and ran down the rest of the steps alone. Still, we can see it looking back at its lost meal, possibly contemplating whether or not to go back and try again. I mean, ANYTHING for some real NYC pizza, right?!
Of course, an @NYCPizzaRat Twitter handle was made, which has already sent out funny messages like, “Wasn’t trying to make a statement, humans. Just trying to get some damn pizza down some Subway stairs,” and, “Look, I was hungry and trying to get home.”

HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Pizza Rat? Why do you think it dropped the pizza?!
