With the acclaim given to the much publicized Pizza Rat’s heroic efforts to wrangle his pizza slice you could have been forgiven for thinking New Yorkers had come to see their numerous rodent neighbors as fine fellows just trying to get a feed. But no.
NYC is full of pranksters and two of them recreated Pizza Rat as a cleverly disguised robot guided by a remote control. At first glance their robot certainly did look like a rat dragging a piece of pizza. So they put the robot down guided it off down the street ande waited to see what would happen.
See the video and find out. Loud screams and hasty jumps to the side were the norm with one brave soul yelling “Go Pizza Rat Go”. I think it will be a while before New Yorkers happily nibble on their food while rats of any description, carrying pizza or not nibble away on theirs right beside them.
