amsters are natural performers. In fact, people who pour on the drama whenever the cameras are rolling are often called "hams." Likewise, that behavior is referred to as "hamming it up." The term comes from hamster, of course.

In fact, the Syrian hamster emerged from obscurity in the wild to starring roles in Hollywood movies, car commercials, and even programming about current events and politics.

Indeed, our 2012 candidates starred in their own "infomercial" film, which is one of several available at this site produced by the first hamster-owned entertainment company, YodaVision Films.


Yoda Squat (2002-2004), founder of YodaVision

Yoda (2002-2004) is also the great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather of Diddley and Squit. Yes, that's eight generations removed!


Sage, Producer and Director of the 2012 Hamster for President Video

Since the passing of the great founder, the business has been a family enterprise, run by successive generations. The late great Sage, distant cousin to Diddley and Squit and also a direct descendant of Yoda, was in charge of video production at the time the propaganda film was made in 2012. She left the business to Diddley's bride, Cree.

On this page you'll find links to a series of videos by, about, or for hamsters. So grab the popcorn and enjoy!
