It was only a matter of time until this happened.
The “pizza rat” that went viral several weeks ago has inspired a “sexy” Halloween costume, pictured at right.
The costume is available at sexy costume mecca Yandy.com for $US89.95. The suggestive outfit consists of “a soft, body-hugging grey mini dress with a white front panel, an attached mouse tail, an attached hood with adorable mouse ears, and two attached pepperoni pizza slice accents,” according to the site.
Nearly $US90 for a skimpy costume might seem steep, but it’s a bargain compared to Yandy.com’s other viral crown jewel this season: a sexy Cecil the Lion costume, which retails for a heftier $US118.95.
The pizza rat phenomenon, for those who missed the critter’s viral explosion on Sept. 21, began online when a rat was caught on camera dragging pizza down the stairs of a New York City subway station.
The rat quickly became an online darling, making the rounds on Mashable, Gothamist, and other news outlets. Twitter went particularly nuts for pizza rat, with “we are all pizza rat” becoming an inexplicably popular refrain.
Here’s a video of pizza rat doing its thing:
