If you've seen 'Joker', you'll be aware that in one scene, Joaquin Phoenix theatrically dances down a very long set of steps.
These steps are in the New York borough of The Bronx, and considering just how huge 'Joker' has been, it was inevitable that fans of the film would flock to such a striking location.
However, it seems that locals weren't counting on just how popular the spot on 167th Street would be... so much so, that the steps (or stairs, as Americans call them) formerly known as 'the 167 stairs' have now been renamed the 'Joker Stairs' on Google.
People have been posting their own takes on Joker's dance...

This morning i woke up as #kiariladyjoker🤡🃏 and decided to go take some shots at those stairs in the Bronx where a scene of the movie Joker was shot. YouTube video will follow up in the next days, i can’t wait to show you priceless reactions of people around the city! . What do you think of the movie?! Masterpiece in my opinion and Joaquin Phoenix the best of the best💯 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 📸 @newyorkloveny Thank you @manuspa to trigger the idea and @chalachinar for the make up on point👌💄 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• @jokermovie @toddphillips1
Not everyone is happy about the neighbourhood's newfound status as a famous film location, though...

It’s really called the Joker Stairs on google now (I just searched it).
Please, if you’re reading this and you’re not from around here (or ever been to the Bronx, Yankee stadium does not count) PLEASE DO NOT COME HERE.
