New York is known for having lots of rats. But ones that carry pizza?

On Saturday, Nov. 7, a well-known YouTuber from Philadelphia, Jesse Wellens, pranked multiple New Yorkers with a rat, which many did not realize was remote controlled.

This prankster pulled the trick in the Subway station and also above ground in public places.

The sounds of shrieks and screams were heard by many that day thanks to YouTube.

Since Saturday, the video has gotten over 2.6 million views with the help of the Dope Fresh Nation, the name he calls his subscribers.

In a recent article from WAFB9 News, Wellens said, “I knew the viral sensation of Pizza Rat already, so I said, why not bring it back?”

And that is exactly what he did.
