Apparently, a struggling New York actor named Eric Yearwood revealed to the website that he was paid $200 to star in a separate viral rat video by a woman named — of course — Zardulu. The way Yearwood tells it, Zardulu is a New York-based performance artist and has trained and used rats in other videos, as well.
And the people who filmed and released the "spontaneous" videos can't be found for comment either??
As tough as the city likes to believe it is, the vast majority of people in this video screamed and/or jumped out of the way — with only one person (that we could tell) cheering the Robotic Pizza Rat on to glory!
In what has to be his 150th minute of fame, the rat that crawled his way into everyone's heart may just have had his strangest update yet.
That's because in addition to a sexy Halloweencostume in his likeness, a rumor was going around on Friday that the pizza fiend had been immortalized in the middle of New York with a street named Pizza Rat Boulevard…
Well, it's certainly bigger, as it was split up into multiple performances throughout the night. And it all started (above) with the Legendary Roots Crew, along with Erykah Badu and Bilal.
Erykah was subdued and surprisingly forgettable doing The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker... Bilal, on the other hand, really brought the spirit of the Purple One to the stage with his performance of The Beautiful Ones.
Next up, Tori Kelly joined Stevie Wonder -- who interestingly enough was also in Her Madgesty's BBMAs tribute -- for a performance of Take Me With U.
It was just OK... but then Jennifer Hudson took the stage and showed everyone how paying tribute is DONE.
Ch-ch-check out all the AH-Mazing performers honoring the late artist starting with the Roots with Erykah and Bilal (below)!
