A few weeks ago, we mentioned the guy in New York who dressed up as a rat and rode the subway. He's gone viral again, and we now know a lot more about him.

Jonothon Lyons is an artist who created an alter ego named "Buddy the Rat". Buddy wears a human suit with a gigantic rat mask and tail. He does everyday New Yorker things while donning a rodent costume. Lyons does it to "make people smile." One of his latest adventures was re-enacting the famous "Pizza Rat".

We're hoping Buddy goes on tour soon.
