This Hamster Eating a Tiny Burrito is the Best Thing You'll See Today

Pin It
Is this real life? Apparently it is. You must watch this video of a hamster happily eating miniature burritos at tiny table painstakingly prepared by a chef.

Check out how he uses tweezers to put the ingredients together and a poker chip for the hamster's plate. Too cute! We also can't get over how chubby the rodent's cheeks get as he scarfs down his Mexican snack (which was actually filled with hamster food).

The viral video was posted by comedy troop HelloDenizen, who managed to train hamsters to sit at a table while cameras rolled. "Hamsters are not very bright," partner Joel Jensen explains. "Basically you hope [the hamster] goes to the chair and then hope it sits in the chair and if it stays in the chair you put the burrito in front of it."

It took them about 10 takes to get it just right, and the results are ridiculously entertaining. Well done!
