Dramatic Audition

We have a new candidate for the Redonk Dramatic Society, in this shocked hamster. Enjoy it here in its pure form, before the inevitable music is added:

Sender-inner Gail throws down the gauntlet: “If anyone can see this and NOT watch it 10 more times, I’d like to know. Eventually I ran out of ideas on what this guy was saying: ‘For me?’ ‘You’re kidding!’ ‘You said what?’ ‘Really?’ ‘No way!'” Surely you, dear reader, can think of more.



  1. Love the feet-up action.

  2. Violetxoxox says:

    Cuter than cute. But dis is no hammie … ratling! Watch for peep of tail on the ta-da.

  3. It’s like, “Darling! You’re home early! I was just…This isn’t what it looks like, I swear!”

  4. I know, me too!

  5. can someone add the dramatic squirrel sound to the movie????

  6. Mary (the first) says:

    “OMG You got your HAIR CUT!!” (and then, off camera: “I like it! Honest!”)

  7. PS: did you see dramatic pug?

  8. I think one of the hands fingers, goosed him.

  9. He’s saying “Scarlett Johansson is available?! My prayers have been answered!”

  10. “OMFG!”

  11. “Soylent Green is PEOPLE!?!?!???”

  12. “NO!” Stunned disbelief. Or perhaps “Shut UP!”

  13. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    I LOVE it when “cute” is just so DANG CUTE!!!!

  14. @Saffron – LOL

  15. “WHO called while I was out?”

  16. “WHO let the dogs out?”

  17. Or “Shut UP?”:

  18. me three. little open mouf too.

  19. I want the music! I want the music!

  20. no, seriously says:

    Is he eating something? I can’t tell if he has a snack in his hand. If he does, may I suggest a new category?

    Rats and snacks!

  21. OMG! I’ll never be able to unsee that!!!

  22. If I could, I would steal this mouse and keep him in my pocket, close to my heart, all day. Every so often I would peek in at him and he would look back at me, all surprised, like in this video. Eventually, people would see me giggling at my pocket all day and naturally assume that I had gone insane. But that’s ok.

  23. Having now watched it 10+ times, I think my favorite element (after the look of surprise, of course) is the little wobble the hamster does upon switching directions. 🙂

  24. “The hell you say!”

  25. Win! *hands you one Internetz*

  26. (The Original) Mel says:

  34. You’re right! I can’t stop watching this xD

  35. “Snape kills Dumbledore??!!”

  36. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

  37. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    “ExCUSE me?
    Did you tell me, that my mother was a hamster, & that
    my father smells of elderberries????? Why, I NEVVAH!!!!!”

  38. Gigi (the original one) says:

    Luke, I am your father.

  39. Ooooh, you might be right. Good eye. There’s def a lot more tail there than a little hammy tailio. (And I know my hammy tailios.)

    In fact, if you play the video and stop it before it ends, it will say right there that it’s a rat. (Albeit, a baby rat doing an impersonation of a hammy.)
