Katy Perry's New Music Video Consists Of A Hamster Eating A Tiny Hamburger

by Eitan Levine

Katy Perry had a teeny tiny music video release today.

At some point over the past few years, the concept of cooking tiny gourmet food for hamsters, filming the process and uploading it to YouTube took over the internet.

The formula for these videos is always the same. It always involves a large hand. It always involves a very quaint, tiny kitchen. It always involves oddly intricate food to prepare, and it always has a hamster scarfing down said food at the end of the video, totally oblivious to the work it took to make the dish.

Katy Perry has harnessed the viral power of hamsters eating really, really, really, really small food for her new music video, and it's oddly intense.

The video, which is for her new song, "Chained To The Rhythm" ft. Skip Marley, is clearly a homage to the "Tiny Hamsters Eating Tiny..." series.

In "Chained To The Rhythm," a disembodied hand cooks a cheeseburger, spaghetti and meatballs, a cake, a hot dog and a few other things that just end up on the hamster's tiny rug.

The song is the first Perry has released since 2016's Olympic anthem "Rise."

Am I the only one that gets oddly nervous watching these tiny food videos?

I have chubby fingers, so maybe it's because my lumbering hand toes (LET'S CALL FINGERS HAND TOES FROM NOW ON!) would bull-in-a-china-shop the hell out of these adorable little kitchens.

I'm talking complete destruction. Tiny plates smashed. Tiny oven doors off their tiny door hinge. A tiny George Foreman grill hanging by its power chord.


This Perry video is really great, though. Katy Perry's voice distracted me from this weird anxiety related to these hamster videos, so on the off chance this is a fear you also have, don't worry about it.

The only thing that could have made this video better is if the hamster was this guy:
