You’ve seen the video of a rat dragging a slice of pizza down the steps of a subway platform?
Tina Trachtenburg, a Brooklyn-based artist who makes “urban soft sculptures,” has recreated our nameless rat with a slice in a plush version. She also re-created the original video with the help of some off-screen puppeteers. (See it here.)
But only in New York can it go viral on Monday and be for sale on Friday. AM New York says that Trachtenburg will be selling the rats for $80 and pizza slices for $20 today in Union Square. Yes, for just $100, you can own a piece of Internet history…. or at the very least, a very expensive cat toy.
