This isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned the Dancing Hamster toy that sings “LOUIE LOUIE.” The first time I mentioned it was a year and a half ago. It was four days before the LOUIE Fest 2007, and someone had shared a video of this toy for the LOUIE Fest contest.
This time I’m mentioning this toy to give it special attention for the regular LOUIE of the Week feature. As it turns out, there’s a lot of different Dancing Hamster toys, and they don’t all sing “LOUIE LOUIE”. Someone out in cyberspace decided that that wanted to pay tribute to the various Dancing Hamster toys, so they created a special “hamstercollection” YouTube channel, and they’re using it to showcase the different hamsters. From what I can tell, it looks like there’s currently 53 hamsters, each with a different song.
Anyone with a unique collection of oddball toys is A-OK with me. Collect the weirdness, win a prize….
Congratulations, Dancing Hamsters at the hamstercollection! You win this week’s prize!
