New Yorkers get used to sharing their space with a vast range of critterdom: squirrels, rats, horses, cockroaches, coyotes, bedbugs, dogs, cats, chickens, hawks and even snakes. And after Pizza Rat made his appearance it was just a matter of time before more critters wanted to get in on the act.
So Mike Luciano and Phil Matarese have just helped the process along a little by imagining how the New Yorkedness of these critters plays out in the dark crevices of the City. And there’s a lot of appeal in letting our NYC’s critters speak out, in fact it’s amusing enough to be picked up by HBO.
Think of it as a critter version of “New York Values’ and you’ll be right on the money. Enjoy the trailer!
