Chosen after a nationwide search, 'The Clever Hamsters' perform a note-perfect jazz track, while keeping themselves topped up with Drench spring water.

The ad, which can be found on and YouTube, first airs on TV this Saturday, 5 December, at 9:15pm during 'The Planet's Funniest Animals' on ITV2.

It was created to demonstrate that the best performances come from being hydrated.
