Just Another Day in New York. Squirrel Chomps Down on Egg Roll [VIDEO]
We may have found one of our first viral videos of 2019. And sure enough, it didn't take place all that far from here.
A Twitter account called WhatIsNewYork uploaded a video of what appears to be an overweight squirrel eating an egg roll, while sitting in a tree. The NY Post says the short Twitter video was uploaded Wednesday and and already got over 75,000 views by Thursday morning.
Rats and squirrels chowing down on discarded leftovers are nothing new, especially across the New York City metro area. But this certainly hasn't stopped these hungry vermin from becoming an internet sensation. We've already seen Pizza Rat and Taco Squirrel. Heck, fans of the Staten Island Yankees (a Penn League rival of the HV Renegades), even tried renaming their team the Pizza Rats.
We may have found a new mascot.
