A Guy Dressed as a Giant Rat named "Buddy" is Riding the New York Subway


  • A performance artist dressed as a giant rat has been seen all over New York City. New Yorkers don't pay much attention to Jonothon Lyons' "Buddy The Rat" character but social media is down for his rat interpretation.
  • Lyons, who wears a giant rat's head and tail while donning a fancy suit and shoes, has a video making the rounds showing him boarding the subway as riders just casually accept his "art".
  •  “Most New Yorkers are totally indifferent,” Lyons toldThe New York Post. The MTA even retweeted the video of him on the subway with the caption "Thank you for wearing a mask."
