Viral Video Of The Day: Hamster Plays Dead When “Shot” By Owner [UPDATE]

Here’s video of a hamster that plays dead when his owner pretends to shoot him with his finger. The video was posted on Sina only yesterday at 11 am, but it’s already received nearly 372,000 views there, not to mention 5,127 forwards on the Sina Weibo page of @YouTube萌宠 as of this moment. Netizens have dubbed the hamster the “ying di” — literally, “emperor of film,” but really meaning simply “Best Actor.” Sina video for those in China after the jump. [UPDATE, 3:10 am: Original wording on this italicized part might have implied the video was posted on Sina first; I've not confirmed that yet.] [UPDATE 2, 3:28 pm: Found the original; I've swapped the old embed to the one from YouTube user ]
