Tiny Hamsters Eating Tiny Burritos Is a Thing!

Just in time for Cinco de Mayo comes the biggest internet sensation since Grumpy Cat and the Prancersize lady. That's right folks, it's Tiny Hamsters Eating Tiny Burritos!

This new video by Hello Denizen was just released, yet it's already managed to rack up nearly 2.5 million views. Why?

It could be because of the care the chef in the short 90-second film takes in preparing the microscopic burritos for his guest. Or the way he sets the teeny tiny table. Or the way the hamster eats the burritos..taking the rolled meal into his widdle pink hands and filling his little cheeks with tasty goodness.....CUTE OVERLOAD!

What makes Tiny Hamsters Eating Tiny Burritos so unique is the fact that chefs are sharing it. In fact, the reason why we found it was because celebrity chef Ralph Pagano posted it to his Facebook page!

If you haven't seen the video, you owe it to yourself to watch it. If you've seen it already, chances are you'll want to see it again. And best news ever? The "official title" includes the ever-hopeful "Episode 1". We can't wait for Episode 2...and 3...and 4....and 5....
