BROOKLYN - Brooklyn straphangers are talking today about a YouTube video that appears to show a rat getting a little too comfortable with one subway rider.

Commuter Jeffrey Forde says he captured the video of the rat running up and down a Brooklyn-bound ?4? subway car until it eventually scampered onto a sleeping man's lap and onto his face.

In response to the video, the MTA says New York City Transit regularly cleans stations platforms and tracks areas of debris that may attract rodents.
