NEW YORK CITY - The so-called 'Pizza Rat' may be the most famous rat in the city right now thanks to social media.

A subway rider captured video of the rodent carrying an entire slice of pizza down a set of stairs at a New York City subway station.

The video was posted on YouTube and has gone viral, with more than 1.5 million views.

Unfortunately for the rat, it appears he dropped the slice before getting to enjoy it.
