Kevin Coop, a film producer from Brooklyn, discovered an unwelcome passenger who hitched a ride on a three-hour driver to upstate New York. Coop recorded two videos of the rat climbing up the hood of his car, towards the end of the drive. RELATED: VIDEO: Is This For Real? NYC Subway Rat Nibbles Crumbs Off of Passed Out Dude’s Lips
In the first 35-second video, he can be heard saying, “I just got to way upstate and I brought a [blank] rat with me!”
In the second video, he’s pulled over with the hood of the BMW open. The engine is exposed and the rat is running around. Coop then says, “Okay, go!” The rat then goes into a hole of the car and off-camera, you can hear a woman yell EW! But Coop sounds like a fun, relaxed guy, as many people who commented on different platforms wouldn’t have been so chill.
@asabilee: I would have sold that car.. actually abandoned it right then and there cuz ain’t no way. She also commented, “Omg omg the rat on the car dipping out of sight?! I would have crashed”
Other viewers left some funny remarks like: @hamad1213: the rat making it out the hood to start new life or @cowboy.bebop1998, who said: Ratatouille wanted out ny. It’s funny, the first thing I thought of was Ratatouille probably because I watched it three nights ago with my son.
I’m no mechanic but one reader left a viable solution to prevent this from happening to you. @chriscrapanzano: “My mechanic sprays my engine with peppermint oil whenever we get an oil change because they like to live in engines when it gets colder in NYC.”
