'Rodents on Turntables': The best minute and a half of your day

Watch as a bunch of cute hamsters, mice, and other small furballs run around in circles -- and at times, just quietly go along for the ride -- on a spinning record.

" Rodents on Turntables" is a fun short film in which fuzzy critters use a moving turntable like a flattened exercise wheel. These little guys were professionally trained to "spin right round" the records in a mesmerizing circle.

Creative firm Division of Labor was hired to make this music-filled film to entertain Live Nation concert-goers. They assure us that no animals were harmed in the making of this short, but that the same can't be said for the records and equipment. So folks, please put down your vintage vinyl, there's no need to try this at home.

It's time to meet "Sergio," "Chunk," and the entire merry gang of revolving rodents.
