The Chinese New Year 2020 begins on January 25 and it is the 'Year of The Rat'. The Zodiacal Rat is the first of all zodiac animals and is associated with the beginning of a new day. In Chinese culture, rats are also looked like a sign of wealth and abundance. And as we approach the Chinese New Year, a Malaysian man also decided to seek a lot of blessings from the rat! A very funny video has come up on social media, which shows a man praying to a caged rat. 'Handsome' Malaysian Goat Becomes Internet Sensation, Thanks to Its 'K-Pop Star' Looks! (See Pictures).

The video is quite funny because the man is seen kneeling down to the ground in front of a mousetrap. The man utters some prayers of prosperity and good luck while those filming it cannot stop chuckling. There is a small board on the wall which reads, "The Rat God" in Chinese characters. The man even puts two incense sticks in front of the rat as an "offering." The video clip is just about 30-seconds and it is going viral now.
