'The Pizza Principle', MTA & Pizza Correlation, Investigated By 'Internets Celebrities' (VIDEO)

Ever notice how the average price of a piece of New York pizza correlates to the city's subway fare?

"The Pizza Principle" is all but economic law and such a significant slice of Gotham folklore that the New York Times has been covering it for years.

Now Dallas Penn and Rafi Kam, the duo behind the video series Internets Celebrities, take to the streets to investigate--questioning MTA employees, interviewing pizza shop owners, and exploring the anomaly of the $1 slice, all while eating a whole lot of pizza.

Their conclusion? "Maybe we're paying too much for pizza and subway rides."
