Watch this rat take over a New York subway car

It’s not uncommon to see a rat running around New York City, but when one happened to hop aboard a subway car on Monday, it owned the place.

The video of the rat terrorizing a very full car of subway riders was uploaded to YouTube by Jinais Ponnampadikkal Kader, and shows people jumping up and down, and standing on the subway seats trying to avoid it.

The video was captioned with, “A usually boring Monday morning commute to work at Brooklyn was stirred up by this little guy. He joined us at the Fulton street station on the A train going downtown. Someone getting off the train was screaming “RAT on the train!”. But by the time everyone realized what was happening, the doors closed and the train entered the tunnel. We were stuck with him till the other end.”
