NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Move over pizza rat, there's a new internet sensation!
A subway rider caught a now viral video of a rat sliding down a pole on the F train.
The video has caused quite a stir online with comments such as the one from rickbruner, "I really want that to be a possum."
"Times are ruff right now in nyc. Even the rats are strippin for the cheese." joked Instagrammer fullframed.
Others riders like esantana came up with a solution for his next commute. 'wearing latex gloves next time I have to stand and hold that pole."
Perhaps the rodent was practicing its moves for an 'It's Showtime" routine?
Showtime is a type of performance dancing done inside New York City Subway cars which includes acrobatic flips, hat tricks, and pole tricks.
