I don’t know what it is but there’s something unbelievably funny about watching people overreact to situations. Especially when they mistakingly think that a remote-controlled toy rat is a real one, and freak the hell out. Thankfully for us, the guys from the YouTube channel PrankvsPrank agree, and decided to take to the streets of New York City to reek absolute chaos among the masses. How did they do that? Pizza rat, my friends. Pizza rat.
How did they do it?
The above video explains how the guys created the pizza rat. The realistic looking creation actually combined an actual slice of pizza with a figurine of a rat to create the effect. Both props were mounted onto a remote control car, which was obviously obscured, to give the effect that the rat was carrying away the slice of pizza for its dinner. Of course, the inspiration for this prank was the viral image earlier this year of a real-life rat taking away a slice pizza down the New York subway. He was hungry! Can you blame him?
So let’s see the video then…
Be warned, you’re going to laugh a lot at this. Our favourite reaction is the two teenagers down the street who scream and quickly run away. Just, what is it about rats that get to them so much? They live in New York City! Isn’t it the case that you’re always within a few feet of at least a few rats? Which New Yorker hasn’t seen a rat scuttle away with a slice every now and again? Come on!
