I have been looking for the classic Classic Hampster Dance page for a while now. I finally found it, thanks to someone I chatted with today. Of course, now it is easy to find, but when I looked 6 months, it was not in Google. Of course, the hampsters have a new, high tech look these days. But the classics are preserved. The site is at http://www.hampsterdance.com/.

For those that don't know the story behind this site, it was a little gimmick that a person put up one day. I think it was hosted at one of those member AOL sites. Anyway, the individual put up the Classic Hampster Dance page (which was at a different URL) and then emailed a friend or two about it. Those friends email other friends, and so on. It was one of the first reported viral marketing tactics ever on the Web. In addition, it was unintentional.
