#Add Stickers

☝️Sad hamster work meme

YouCam Video has tons of cute stickers for you to choose from. 

They bring your Sad Hamster meme up a level.

#Add Texts or Emoji

One of the funniest things about this meme is likely the thoughts people imagine the hamster having.

So add a line of text for the hamster, and better yet, include a "water💧" emoji to convey a crying expression.

#Try Cartoon Effect

Another option for you is to apply the cartoon effect on the sad hamster. Currently, YouCam Video has around 13 cartoon filters for you to play with.

This really gives the meme a different touch.

#Add Sad Hamster Music

Finally, don't forget to add the iconic song for your sad hamster, titled "Woe Is Me!".

You can download this piece of music from YouTube, and add music to the video via YouCam Video.

If you have been watching SpongeBob SquarePants, you might immediately recognize this tune.

It's the same one famously played by Mr. Krabs on the "world's smallest violin."
