A video of a hamster showing amazing acting skills to play dead has gone viral on YouTube. Sitting upright next to some shredded newspaper, the pet can be seen looking intently towards its owner who is filming the incident.
In a seemingly well-practiced routine, the cameraman points his fingers in the shape of a gun in the direction of the hamster, reports Metro.
Upon hearing a fake gun shot, the pet slumps back against the wall, before slowly closing its eyes and dramatically rolling onto his side.
The video was uploaded onto YouTube with the caption: "Adorable hamster plays dead. No hamsters were hurt in the making of this film."
