Comedian behind ‘Pokémon Go Problems’ video charged $425 for jumping onto TTC subway tracks

Remember that viral Pokémon GO video called “Pokémon Go Problems?” It was created by “Noodle Boys,” a Toronto-based production company and has amassed over 450,000 views since going live.

Starring in the short clip was Mark Correia who pretended to play the AR game but found himself crashing into walls, doors, traffic, falling into water, and also ventured onto the TTC subway tracks at Union Station. This action immediately caught the attention of Toronto Police and also the TTC for violating its safety laws.

The TTC announced it has charged Correia $425 for illegal entry upon tracks and will appear in court on September 16th.

TTC spokesperson Brad Ross said the stunt was “incredibly dangerous.”
