New York City is known for a lot of things, two of the most popular being subway rats and pizza slices. The video above has both.
In the 0:14 second video above posted by YouTube user Matt Little, a rat tries to carry a full slice of pizza down a flight of steps to a New York City subway station.
The rat, who is not much smaller than the pizza slice itself, took the Internet by storm on Monday, with Twitter users identifying the rodent as both relatable and a hero.

I don't want to get too involved in this #PizzaRat thing but shouldn't he be called "coolratwithgoodtaste"???— Aidy Bryant (@aidybryant) September 21, 2015
There's no pizza rat emoji yet I'm going to die— billy eichner (@billyeichner) September 22, 2015
Whether you think he's a hero or want him to be your new best friend, there's no denying the pizza rat is just another hard working New Yorker trying to survive the big city.
