Commuter films 'Avocado Rat' at Brooklyn subway station

By Ben Hooper

Nov. 15 (UPI) -- A New York commuter captured video of a sight that seemed uniquely appropriate for a Brooklyn subway station: A rat carrying an avocado.

Jessica Edwards posted a video to Instagram showing the rodent -- dubbed Avocado Rat by commenters in honor of New York's famous Pizza Rat -- dashing down the subway tracks at Brooklyn's Greenpoint Ave. station while carrying an avocado half.

"Even the rats in #nyc are on trend," Edwards wrote. "Hope he finds some toast."

Edwards said she spotted the rat on the G train platform about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The video, which quickly went viral, recalled the viral fame of Pizza Rat, a rat filmed carrying a whole slice of pizza at a New York subway station in 2015.
