Rats, they’re just like us!
A subway rodent got its afternoon caffeine fix Wednesday, according to Twitter footage that shows the creature rushing across a Brooklyn train platform with a large cup of joe between its teeth.
“Made my whole day!!” wrote Melissa Walker alongside the footage, which she said was taken at the Franklin Avenue 3 train stop.
The creature was immediately dubbed #coffeerat.
“Best part is, he’s bringing that coffee to the boss rat,” joked @mbillips.
@CTRailCommuters added: “Is he panhandling?”
Coffee Rat’s forebear, Pizza Rat, won New Yorkers’ hearts when it was was filmed carrying a full slice down the stairs of an East Village subway station in 2015.
It was later joined in viral infamy by Avocado Rat, Pizza Raccoon and, of course, Nutella Squirrel.
