In order to show off something about the steering systems of their trucks, Volvo set up a stunt in which a hamster steers a truck along side a terrifying cliff and then tries to run down some sheep. As such a tiny animal, controlling a 17-ton machine probably when to Charlie's head pretty quickly, and he must have just decided to exercise his new power over those tiny helpless sheep.

We're impressed and amused by the stunt, but we're not really sure what the goal of this was. Are any of our readers truckers? We normally complain when a vehicle's steering is this light because it's not very communicative. Is featherweight hamsterweight steering good for semis?

What move will Kia's hamsters make now?
