New Yorkers love their pizza but hate the rodents that crawl around the city. Well, it turns out that even the one creature that New Yorkers loathe loves a good slice.
This might be the most New York City moment ever recorded.
Unfortunately, the rat never gets to devour his meal; it runs off just before it reaches the bottom of the stairs.
The video, which was posted on Monday, has been gaining attention and even spawned a series of funny tweets.
