It seems bad enough that the “Pokemon Go” craze has made proverbial street zombies of it’s players.
Now a parody of the zombieism will send one “You Tuber” to provincial court in mid September.
TTC spokesperson Brad Ross says the star of a Pokemon satire video, Mark Correia, will be charged with unauthorized access to the transit system.
The video shows the aspiring comedian exaggerating clumsy pitfalls related to being glued to a mobile phone screen playing the iconic game while strolling down Toronto streets.
In one moment of the 48 second video, Correia is seen walking nonchalantly down at track level in a TTC Subway station.
The stunt carries a fine $425 according to Ross.
The incident was filmed in July, and aside from being dangerous, the TTC says the action could have resulted in serious injury and caused a delay for thousands of commuters.
Ross elaborated that the TTC does not take such an action lightly, and are charging the individual to set an example.
