This Rat Found the Ultimate Exercise Wheel, Is Also a Metaphor for Futility

Run, little rat, run.

This video shows a rat attempting to run down an upward moving escalator in the San Francisco Civic Center BART station. The sad music in the background really sets the tone as one singular rodent faces insurmountable odds as it tries to get home. Or maybe it’s just exercising. Either way, it’s fairly hypnotic.
