Totally out of control hamster

This hammle is so out of control, it's hilarious. Guess what happens when he goes too fast on his wheel? THE LAWS OF PHYSICS TAKE OVER!!!

Aww! How cute! I love when he goes thud on the ground!


*first comment dance*

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:05 PM

damn. Oh well---*still dancing*

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:06 PM

Bugger! this is NOT happening to me again! this was my last 'first' post.

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:06 PM

OMG I müst håve watched that videø 25 times in a row! I ådore this håmmle from um... someplace with a lot of funny little mårks over their vøwels.

*laughs so hard falls off couch - vaguely resembling video clip*

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:07 PM

Wait - cute or sad?

Still, I did like watching his little legs go faster and faster...that hammy could power a hemi!

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:14 PM

i keep watching this, and i keep laughing. poor hammie! i bet he gets right back on that wheel....

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:15 PM

Good heavens! If they taught me physics at school using hamsters I'd probably have done me degree in that... hmph. Bleshk the flying furry cuteness!

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:18 PM

Nah, I don't think it hurt him. I've seen this video before--I love it!! I've seen hamsters do this sort of thing before and I bet k is correct...he probably got right back on the wheel.

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:18 PM

If he hits 88 mph, he could travel through time.

Those of you wondering "cute or sad"--I'll bet this little guy does this TOTALLY on purpose. And I bet he does it over and over--maybe until he starts going "oooog... I don't feel so well... I think I'll go lie down now..."

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:21 PM

I agree. He looks like he stops running on purpose. I'll bet he does this several times a day.

Also, hamster in Swedish is hamster. Who knew?

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:44 PM

Hee! I wouldn't worry about whether he hurt himself--hammies are damn near indestructible. See how he bounced and got right back up?

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:45 PM

OMG this video is oddly addictive! It's so cute and funny. Poor little hammie!!!

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:53 PM

*Eeeeeehn, EEeeeehn, EEEEEEEEhn!....WHEEEEEeeee!!! thump*

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:53 PM

I sent the link on to several people. What an awesome little hamster.

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 04:58 PM

ah man.... I needed that laugh. I think I'll watch it a few more times for fun. :-)

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 05:09 PM

In Hammie voice..."oh! oh! gotta wheel! gotta wheel!
gotta wheel! gotta wheel!
go!go!go!go!go!go! go!go!go!go!go!go! go!go!go!go!go!go!go!go!go!go!go!go! whhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! UMPH!"

You know, I wish I had a burst of energy like that sometimes! Of course if I drank RED BULL or some other caffeinated drink on an hourly basis, I bet I could do that too.

Just way too funny.

One, two, three and a half revolutions! Ah-ha-ha-ha. I love the part where his legs stick out! Sooo cute!

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 05:26 PM

You must always stretch before exercising. That little guy could have pulled a hamstring.

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 05:30 PM

Too funny!

K Akagami has still photos of this happening, but it's more amusing on video. I'm certain the hamsters do it on purpose.

That is friggin' HILARIOUS. I love the fact that his little leggies go in such a blur that it looks impossible. Turbo-charged hamster!!!

And I'm betting he does this regularly. . .otherwise owner wouldn't have bothered to take video.

Hammie channeling Dusty Springfifeld?

"Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
As the images unwind...
In the windmills of your mind."

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 06:25 PM

omg - I actually laughed out loud at this one! So cute!!

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 08:07 PM

I think this little hammie is in training for the hamster x-games or auditioning for a mountain dew commercial, i'm not sure which.

I had mice that did this, too, but since their wheel was wire, they could hang on. Sometimes they'd pair up running, then one of them would just hold on for a few go-rounds. I don't think I ever saw them going quite that fast though. Zoom!

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 08:30 PM

eXtreme hamsterwheeling!

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 08:32 PM

Damn that was funny... if I were a hamster, Id be doing the same too... cause I bet doing that would be FUN. I wonder if I can get a human powered wheel thing going!

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 09:19 PM

Awwww, he looks just like my little Dostoyevsky.

Uh, my cat wishes for me to convey that Dostoyevsky is, in fact, *her* hamster, and that I better get it right from now on.

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 09:48 PM

I have a few friends that say they think the wheel was attached to a motor that starts when he starts running :(

Still...I couldn't help laugh at it. Hamu's are so cute dangit!

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 10:12 PM

Wee lil' hammie
Running on the wheel ...
Round and round and round he goes
Without even a squeal ...

SO EFFING CUTE. *snorgles*

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 10:28 PM

Uh-oh, ehn!
It's cute.

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 11:07 PM

Ow! D'oh!

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 11:29 PM

K. Akagami photos of same:



Y'know, the *wheel* is identical, and I can't help wondering if the video is actually of K. Akagami's hamster...

 |  Apr 07, 2006 at 11:35 PM

hes all like "la la la la la im running.....WOAAAAAHHHHHHHH" -thunk- what a cute little guy

 |  Apr 08, 2006 at 12:46 AM

Update! I need a new photo!

 |  Apr 08, 2006 at 01:05 AM

Sorry, off topic. And sorry if that sounded rude or something.

 |  Apr 08, 2006 at 01:06 AM

I've seen this before on a hamster forum! *_* Energetic little fellow. And don't get your knickers in a twist-- that fall probably just confused him for a while. XD

 |  Apr 08, 2006 at 01:09 AM

The police should be on his back cause hes reaching speeds to up to 100mph

 |  Apr 08, 2006 at 03:06 AM

I watched it a million times,and laughed till cried!!!!!!!!!


 |  Apr 08, 2006 at 04:41 AM
