- A video posted on Facebook shows a rat hopping up at an escalator
- It was escaping from a security guard who was trying to capture it
- Netizens have reacted strongly upon seeing this rodent video
A few days ago, a Facebook user posted a video of a rat that went viral. As of posting, it has more than 5,000 likes, almost 8,000 shares, and about 4,000 comments. You might think it’s just a regular rat video, but in this case, the rat is showing incredible skills in hopping.
In fact, the rat in the video is found in one of TriNoMa, an Ayala mall in Quezon City. It was at a downward escalator trying to escape from a security guard who was trying to capture it.
The big rodent has shown its strength by hopping up from one step to another in a quick repetitive manner. It almost reached the second floor but failed perhaps when it got tired.
The video didn’t show if the rat was able to succeed in going to the second floor or if the guard caught it.
It can also be seen in the video that no one attempted to go down using that escalator when they saw a rat coming up their direction.
Netizens had different reactions upon seeing this rodent video. As per usual, some have shown disgust upon seeing the rat mainly because this particular area of TriNoMa is the Landmark section where the grocery and many food stalls are located.
Some have expressed their admiration for the rat’s determination and have even compared it to doing exercise.
Others have even connected this to Pokemon Go. Many commented that this is a real-life Rattata and that the guard should have used a ‘poke-ball’ to capture the creature.
Overall, while this rodent has appalled some to the extent that they wouldn’t want to go to this mall, most of the responses were positive ones. Netizens are laughing this incident off.
