Originally it was created by Canadian art student Deidre LaCarte for geocities, but grew into a huge internet meme. The site was named after her hamster, Hampton.

The original song is "Whistle Stop" by Roger Miller which was adapted by Disney in "Robin Hood" (the cartoon):

Hampterdance was exploited and turned into the site it is today because of all of us that flooded the site in the 90's. Actually, today's site is interesting, but I still liked the original:

No, I didn't record the entire thing. I took a little clip and pasted a bunch of times...

In January 1999, it was featured in an Earthlink Commercial (after it had been changed slightly): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARybJ7...

Now go light up and enjoy.
