Is it crazy to say that this is the least surprising video I’ve ever seen on the internet? I mean the headline practically writes itself. I guarantee this isn’t the first time a drunk Russian hopped on the back of a bear, and it certainly won’t be the last.
I know Russia is supposed to be our adversary, but I feel like they’d be a pretty easy foe to take down. Maybe that’s because my only exposure to their culture involves their love of vodka, ridiculous dashcam videos, brutally cold temps, and their extremely corrupt political system… but who knows.
This guy just looks like another happily-hammered Russian that wanted to expand his list of places he’s consumed vodka to include on the back of a bear. Makes sense if you really think about it.
I will say that I’m a little skeptical that the bear is real. Something looks a little fishy when he moves his head around.
Those Russians are pretty damn good at deep fakes and manipulating Americans via the internet, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some tricky editing going on. Either way, still a hilarious video.
