NEW YORK (WABC) -- If you thought the original PizzaRat was entertaining, the remote-controlled version will have you rolling.
Prankster Jesse Wellens, who runs the YouTube channel "PrankvsPrank,"posted video of people in New York City reacting to his fake rat holding a pizza. He frightened people with the mechanical contraption in the subway and even above ground - in public places.
Check out the video here:
The video has gone viral, with nearly 1.8 million views since it was posted Sunday.
There's shrieking, jumping, running and blood-curdling screams - all because of this not-so-real pizza rat. But we have to give Wellens credit, it does look remarkably real -- and eerily similar to the original pizza rat.
