Video of performance artist dressed as 'pizza rat' amuses netizens
Buddy the Rat aka artist Jonothon Lyons video also received a shout-out from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York. "Thank you for wearing a mask," they tweeted
After a photo of kaju katli immersed in chicken soup left netizens shocked, another video of a pizza rat has gone viral on social media. Back in 2015, a video of a rat dragging a pizza slice through the stairs of a subway in New York city had gone viral.
In the video, performance artist Jonothon Lyons can be seen creating the pizza-stairs moment, and that too quite perfectly. As the video moves further the 'pizza rat' is seen dragging the piece without caring about the humans walking past it.
"Pizza Rat!" Lyons wrote while sharing the video on Instagram.

This is hilarious. If you’ve lived in New York! In 1987, I saw a rat walking down the subway track backwards pulling what looked like a bag of old bagels. It had personality.— Gailen David (@gailendavid) November 17, 2020
