"Hamster Potter" is the perfect distraction.

Have a long to-do list? Has the work week felt like two weeks? If could use a little break, we at have just the thing for you: a video of hamsters recreating “Harry Potter”.

If you’re anything like us, you can get lost in a book or a film. Your mind stays focused on the characters and the adventures they’re having.

And when there’s cute little critters involved? Well, that just makes the distraction even cuter.

The video, dubbed “Hamster Potter” and posted to YouTube by Mashable Watercooler, features hamsters from Westchester Rescued Hamster Haven in New York.

In it, a hamster, presumably playing the title character, is summoned to Hogwarts, the boarding school for hamster wizards. He travels by train and by boat to get there. Upon arriving, the magic takes over, with the hamsters in the framed photographs suddenly moving (how did they do that?!). His parents even appear in a mirror.

Hamster Potter meets the other students, gathers in the Great Hall and engages in a game of quidditch.

We recommend watching the video on repeat.
