The video has caused quite a stir online with comments such as the one from rickbruner, "I really want that to be a possum."

"Times are ruff right now in nyc. Even the rats are strippin for the cheese." joked Instagrammer fullframed.

Others riders like esantana came up with a solution for his next commute. 'wearing latex gloves next time I have to stand and hold that pole."

Perhaps the rodent was practicing its moves for an 'It's Showtime" routine?
