Amusing Monday: Having fun — like a hampster

I’m on vacation this week and next, so I’m not sure how many blog entries I will post over the next two weeks, but I wanted to offer something for this regular Amusing Monday feature.

In this video, people volunteer to become hamsters and try to walk or run inside an inflatable beach ball.
If you’ve never seen the water ball, I think you’ll get a kick out of this video. I chose it for its music and action, but there are dozens of other videos on YouTube and other sites. If you would like to view more videos, search for “walking on water ball” or “water walking.”

If you’re ready to buy one of these balls, you’ll find lots of online retailers in Hong Kong and a few in the U.S. I’m not sure who sells them locally, but I saw a reference to K-Mart. It appears they start around $300, including postage.

If you’ve actually climbed into one of these things, I’d like to hear about your experience.
