Video of hamster eating burritos goes viral (Video)

WASHINGTON — Why should humans be the only ones to enjoy the taste of a burrito? A video going viral online shows a tiny hamster indulging in tiny burritos.

The video, which has been viewed more than 4 million times since it was posted on YouTube April 29, shows a chef crafting a miniature burrito and dining experience fit for a hamster.

Comedy group Hello Denizen created the video and plans to make more, a representative from the group told Yahoo!.

“We like to make comedy videos that are as visual as possible,” a Hello Denizen representative told Yahoo via email. “We’d had an idea about making something with miniature food, because that sounded weird and cute. We then realized that feeding that food to a hamster would make it that much better, and adding the extra layer of a chef who cared about this more than anything on earth would make our viewers care as well, and play our game with us.”

Hello Denizen wants to hear what people want to see in the next episode through #tinyhansterideas.
