Hamsters ready to party.

Editor's Pick

Wherever they go, the Kia hamsters' infectious energy changes the world around them. Last time, they (along with agency David & Goliath) got some angry-looking aliens dancing to the beat, and now, they have infiltrated an 18th century opera house. Swedish House Mafia member Axwell's remix of "In My Mind," the track by Ivan Gough and Feenixpawl, is the song du jour, so that's what gets the staid opera audience on their feet and ready to party. Of course, the spot is on-trend: electronic music is the hottest thing this summer, and even the moves the hamsters do are hipper-than-thou. MJZ's Carl Erik Rinsch directs.
