2009: Year of the Hamster.
There was a time when creatives spent their careers hoping to create a TV spot with a monkey in it. Seems the monkey has been replaced with the hamster. The video above for Drench Spring Water made its debut on the Top 10 Viral Video Chart this week.
Earlier this year Kia had a big hit with a viral video starring some bad ass hamsters.
Kia followed up with a holiday commercial featuring a giant hamster.
Minute Maid jumped on the hamster bandwagon.
Other hamster stars for 2009 include Rhino, who stole the show as a hamster in the movie Bolt.
And the Zhu Zhu hamster pets are at the top of Christmas wish lists this year. With that said, we are declaring, in no official terms, 2009 as The Year of the Hamster.
