Hamster Cup Episode 1: England vs Uruguay

Published on Jun 19, 2014 12:19 PM

Welcome to the first-ever Straits Times Hamster Cup.

Having finally completed their acclimatisation to Stadio Straits Times, our football hamsters Tiki and Taka commanded the attention of the media.

We shot them in action as they presented their unique concept of "predicting" the outcomes of big games being played out at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Ahead of the Uruguay-England game, Tiki and Taka "played" on behalf of each country, summoning with all their might, the prowess of the teams' icons respectively, Luis Suarez and Wayne Rooney.
