Don't go chasing Pokemon on the TTC subway tracks

The TTC is not too happy with the Noodle Boys. Why? Because the Toronto-based production company filmed a Pokemon Go-related video on the subway tracks at Union Station.

If you haven't seen it yet, Pokemon Go Problems has nearly half a million views on Facebook and features actor Mark Correia (one half of the Noodle Boys duo) getting into shenanigans around the city on his quest to catch 'em all. Along with walking on the subway tracks, Correira falls into Lake Ontario and crashes into multiple walls.

Correia and producer Jason D'Souza understand why they're getting a lot of flack for their project. "The TTC's angry, which makes sense because we went on the subway tracks. That's stupid and we understand that. And we're not trying to endorse that in any way when we try to make silly videos," says Correia.

The TTC is currently investigating the incident and has repeated that there are no Pokemon at track level.


The Noodle Boys don't think they went too far, despite the possible repercussions from the TTC. "It's our job as artists to try to push the envelope, but if we do something illegal, it's their job to act on that," notes Correia.

Neither Correia nor D'Souza play Pokemon Go, Correira tells me. "Watching myself in the video makes me realize that I don't want to play the game and become that for real."
