Remember this day, a day that will forever be known as ‘that time someone made tiny burritos for a hamster and caught it all on video and the entire internet loved it’. The video below is episode 1 of ‘Tiny Hamsters Eating Tiny Burritos’ by YouTube user ‘HelloDenizen’. IT. IS. GLORIOUS.
UPDATE: We interviewed the guys behind this amazing video! Here’s some of what they said.
Where did you get the idea of ‘Tiny Hamsters Eating Tiny Burritos’?
It’s kind of a universal truth that people take immense pleasure in watching little animals eat things. There are probably hundreds of gifs or videos of hamsters eating carrots. We love it. The only thing people seem to like more than just watching animals be cute on their own is when they’re being cute while acting like people – good old anthropomorphism. So we combined those two thoughts – animals eating like people – and opted for burritos because we knew a hamster would cram them into their cheeks.
How difficult was it in preparing tiny burritos and how long did it take?
There were a couple tricky parts. First, we had to be sure everything was hamster-safe. We didn’t want the little guys eating anything that could do them harm. So we worked with animal trainers to determine what would be doable. Our chef in the video, Farley Elliott, then did some experiments and decided that using egg roll wrappers as the tortilla would actually be best because they’d be the most malleable. All in all it took a few days of experimenting, but once we had it, it was quite simple.

So this is what going through warp speed looks like. So trippy. A Phantom camera attached to a helicopter drone flew through a fireworks display, capturing the stunning explosions up close and in slow-motion. Although the stunt gave us this cool video to gawk at, many are criticizing the pilot’s risky decision to let his drone fly near live fireworks.
