Before the final Subway Series game of the regular season, the New York Mets chose to capitalize on a viral moment to get in the heads of the rival Yankees.
During Monday’s enthralling game, a fan was caught on camera with a hot dog and a beer being used in ways they weren’t intended.
The fan was shown with a hot dog being placed inside his beer, but not to be eaten or dunked.
Prior to placing the hot dog in the beer, he used a plastic straw to burrow a hole down the middle of said hot dog in order to drink out of it.
The Mets chose to join in on the action by posting their lineup card with a cheeky caption at the top ahead of their, ‘Last game in the only stadium where people use hot dogs as straws.’

The video made the rounds on social media, with a number of fans shocked by the fan’s actions and decisions.
This footage in various forms has been seen millions of times across Twitter, with popular Yankees accounts, sports media accounts, and even professional athletes chiming in.
Some were impressed with his ingenuity, others were less sure.
While the identity of the man isn’t clear, he walked home happy with a beer and a hot dog sitting nice in his stomach alongside a 4-2 win for his Yankees.
Tuesday night could be the same, with the Yankees hoping to wrap up their first three game win streak since the end of July.
