ICYMI: Yesterday, a raccoon was spotted climbing the USB building Minnesota. The photo taken from the 13th floor went viral, and the world watched with bated breath as the raccoon climbed higher and higher. Traps were set on the building's rooftop in the hope that the little guy would make his (or her) way to the top of the building. All the drama unfolded in real time, as local Minnesota news live-streamed the raccoon's climb up, then back down, then back up again. The #mprraccoon made it as high as the 23rd floor before getting ontop of the roof to safety. Even famous folks found themselves caught up in the spectacle:

The TODAY show recapped the event this morning, calling the raccoon a "rock star":

The USB plaza's official Twitter account reported the raccoon safe!
