I would've figured this had been done before. And it has, but all of them only included one of the ham(p)sters.

I thought about redoing this like two days ago. sweet remake

I'm assuming the reason it hasn't been done is because all of the hampsters were in separate .gifs before. I had to compile them together into one .gif.

Why wasn't this done earlier? YTMND is perfect for this!

This was YTMND before there was a YTMND. In a way, we all owe something to the hampsterdance.

I regret this everyday, for a friend and I right before graduation were going to burn the audio track from this on to a cd, and loop it over the school's PA. There were some loose wires in the locker room where you could tap right into it.

Course this was all behind a tile in the wall, so it would have covered the cd-player nicely.

I was always pretty sure you had to be over the age of 40 to think the "Hampster" Dance was funny.

ooold, ....... just kdding. coincidently I recently found this to be a variation of the Pachelbel Canon.

I'm pretty sure the audio is a sped-up recording of the song from the 1973 animated Robin Hood.

The Hamster Dance was ahead of its time. That sh*t is a YTMND before YTMND.

It's the 90s precursor to YTMND.

I'm pretty sure the original creater had this removed the first 20 times it was posted.
September 14th, 2006

Removed? How do you mean?
September 14th, 2006

Deleted by mods. She's a big whiner. To be honest, I can't actually remember if it was infact YTMND i'm remembering it to have been removed from but I'm sure it's been posted before anyway.

Oh, all right. Thanks for the heads-up; I guess we'll see.

Pro. I remember they had a bunch of other sites linked to hamsterdance, like fish dance or some sh*t.

a nice clean loop would be appropriate. Get to work!

"a nice clean loop would be appropriate. Get to work!" That wouldn't be true to the original. Hamsterdance brings back good memories :)
September 14th, 2006

To everyone saying "PUT THE WHOLE SONG!!" or "Make a cleaner loop" obviously miss the point. This is the origional sound clip, from the origional hampster dance site. The noise at the end of the loop, makes the YTMND, changing it to 'clean it up' would ruin the whole idea.

5/5 Just for the memories...

You should watch yourself. Didn't the original creator threaten to sue people who recreated Hamsterdance.com? Saw it on somethingaweful. Also c*cks.

Each time I hear that song, a little bit of me dies inside. It can't vanish into the archives of history fast enough. +2 for effort

I hate to stress this, but it took me hours to combine these into one .gif, since the original .gifs were at different speeds and lengths.
