Here Is A Video of A Pigeon Riding the Subway

Pigeons: they’re just like us!
The video above—turn the volume up so you can hear all the ambient noise—was shot by Elaine Georgolios earlier this month on a TTC train arriving at Runnymede Station. We won’t spoil the ending other than to say that it is one of the most suspenseful, and then triumphant, testimonies to the human pigeon spirit ever captured on a cellphone camera. Basically, it’s The Shawshank Redemption, starring this pigeon.
Georgolios originally uploaded the video to her Facebook profile, but we’ve been sent links to it so many times that we decided to convince her to add it to YouTube so that we could share it with the world. Because the world must see this.
