The Kia Hamsters Are Back & They’re Dancing Harder Than Ever

By Megan O'Neill 

The Kia Soul hamsters took the advertising world by storm in 2009 and 2010, driving to Goldfish’s Fort Knox and dancing to Black Sheep’s ‘The Choice Is Yours.’  It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from our furry friends but this week we can excitedly say that the dancing hamsters are back and they are better than ever!  This time they’re “sharing some soul” and saving their world with their dancing.

When the video begins, giant cyborg robots things are destroying the world…that is, until the hamsters arrive on the scene in their Kia Soul and start dancing it up.  The robots can’t help but join the party and the world is safe.  Thanks hamsters!

The video’s description on YouTube says it all:  “First they drove.  Then they rapped.  Now they’re dancing.  But they’re not doing any old dance.  They’re shuffling.  And they’re doing it harder, faster and better than any hamster has ever shuffled before.”

The new video has already racked up over 318,000 views since it hit YouTube over the weekend, and is climbing the YouTube charts at a rapid pace.  Check out the new Kia Soul Hamster video below, followed by the two previous ads, and let us know what you think!
