"I JUST SAW PIZZA RAT!" the post reads. "I repeat: I JUST SAW PIZZA RAT!"

"Pizza Rat" became famous in September 2015 when a subway commuter's video of a rat dragging a slice of pizza down the stairs at the First Avenue/14th Street station went viral.

Numerous viral videos followed showing rats performing other strange feats and dragging foods at city subway stations. A performance artist known as Zardulu claimed to have staged some of the videos, but it was unclear if she had any connection to the most recent clip.
