We've all been there before -- going nowhere really fast.

We just haven't been caught on camera for your viewing pleasure.

We can't say the same for this urban rat who appears hurried to catch a ride to across the Bay. Sadly, the rodent appears to have missed his train after failing, repeatedly, to get off the escalator at the Civic Center BART station. And it wasn't from a lack of trying.

An amused BART rider caught the entire tail-chasing moment on camera.


This could also explain all that fecal matter that's amassed in BART escalators.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
