In June 2007, the Internet was introduced to the Dramatic Chipmunk (aka Dramatic Hamster or Dramatic Prarie Dog) which quickly became a viral sensation on YouTube. The Dramatic Chipmunk was so popular that it even made a cameo in the Weezer music video for their song Pork And Beans. But look out Dramatic Chipmunk! Apparently “dramatic looks” in Animal Memes aren’t just limited to chipmunks. Now there’s a Dramatic Cat ready to take on the Dramatic Chipmunk’s fame.

The Dramatic Chipmunk
In June 2007, YouTube user magnets99 uploaded a clip of the Dramatic Chipmunk from Episode 7 of the Japanese TV show Hello! Morning. In the segment, titled “Mini Moni Chicca,” some teen girls get to meet a variety of small animals including turtles, bunnies, and a prairie dog. Here’s the original clip. As you can see, the prairie dog actually makes its a famous dramatic look. No special visual effects were used. Tha cute dramatic prairie dog face was real.
YouTube user magnets99 cut out the clip of the dramatic prairie dog from the show Hello! Morning and then added some music from the 1974 film Young Frankenstein.
