Just like the play-within-the-play in Shakespeare's Hamlet, these Youtube videos of Hamlet The Mini Pig all served a larger purpose to find out which employee at Hormel was responsible for the murder of his father.

Following his father's death, a ghost appears and tells Hamlet to walk down the stairs.

Hamlet chases Ophelia, who is crazy and only wears blankets.

Hamlet discovers his old friend York, while excavating a forgotten abyss.

Claudius sends Hamlet to England. Hamlet expresses how he feels about that. 

Hamlet tries to prove that Claudius killed his father by pulling on a towel.

The exciting conclusion in which Hamlet duels Claudius to his death...but without the death.

That'll do pig, that'll do.

For those of you concerned, Hamlet The Mini Pig does not die in this version of the story. He does, however, go on to become a regular cast member on Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country, which is pretty much the equivalent.
