"Making my way downtown, walking fast, faces pass and I'm homebound," Luigi Maestro the shih tzu sings to himself (probably). He's rolling down the sidewalk on Manhattan's Upper East Side in a dog-sized BMW with his mom, author Anisha Lakhani, trailing behind, driving the car with a remote control.
Neil Paine, a sportswriter at FiveThirtyEight, spotted the pair on May 29 and snapped a photo. The resulting tweet has since racked up more than 18,250 retweets and 28,100 likes.
But Paine isn't the first to spot Lakhani and Luigi.
