Pole-Dancing Rat might just dethrone Pizza Rat as the most iconic rodent
Last year, A rat dragging a slice of pizza down the steps of a New York City subway made its debut as the “most New York thing to ever happen.” But watch out, Pizza Rat, because there’s a new, pole-dancing rat in town.
Passengers on the N train headed to Queens at 3 a.m. are bound to see their fair share of strange things on any given day, but a pole-dancing rodent might take the cake.
Subway rider Andy Konrad sent the video to the New York Post, which featured a rat scaling a subway hand rail, doing a few twirls, and sliding back down in true showgirl fashion.
No word on whether Pole-dancing rat is one of Zandalu’s tricks, but even if it is – we’re equally parts grossed out and impressed. Just another reason to break out the hand sanitizer next time you use public transit!
