From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The prairie dog after turning its headDramatic Chipmunk, also known by the more accurate title Dramatic Prairie Dog, is a popular Internet comedy viral video. [1][2] The video is a five-second clip of the "chipmunk" (actually a prairie dog) turning its head while the camera zooms in and dramatic music is played.

The clip became widely known through uploads on YouTube and CollegeHumor on June 19, 2007.[1] An earlier and identical version, titled as Dramatic Look, had been uploaded to YouTube on June 6, 2007.[3]

The clip of the prairie dog is from the Japanese television show Hello! Morning featuring Minimoni.[4] The clip has a prairie dog inside a transparent box being shown to the hosts in the studio. CollegeHumor also released a longer clip under the title Undramatic Chipmunk, showing how the video looked in the original Japanese version.[5]

The audio used in Dramatic Chipmunk is taken from the score of the 1974 Mel Brooks film Young Frankenstein, which was composed by two-time Oscar nominee (and longtime Brooks collaborator) John Morris, and orchestrated by Morris and EGOT recipient Jonathan Tunick.[6][7][8] It uses three dramatic chords (A minor, C# minor, and E minor) performed in full orchestral tutti, and has a rumble of thunder in the background. The "chipmunk" turns its head and stares at the camera while the music is played.

Since its release, the video has received over thirty million of views.[9] People Magazine named the Dramatic Chipmunk as one of The 10 Wildest YouTube Stars of 2007.[10]

The "gentleman thank you." by the moderator between the two clips needs to be edited out for better effect.

viralvideos.com is a great source for marketing material. There is a movie trailer for Saw IV that is peaking right now that may have good material.


You think its over.
You think you're safe.
You are wrong.
I promise that my work will continue.
The puzzle cannot be complete until all the pieces are in place.


Material could be related to NDAA.

The blue background in this "myspace" viral clip could definately be used for political purposes as well.


It is of a Bic Lighter in slow motion.

This viral clip has to have a place in an anti Santorum ad:
