Bear chasing man up tree is the most Russian thing ever

This video from a couple years back is picking up viral steam now. And with good reason since it features a bear chasing a Russian man up a tree. No, really.

I particularly enjoyed how the cameraman saw fit to keep filming the situation like it was a viral video for Michael J. Fox’s new NBC sitcom rather than helping the poor guy out. Then again, I don’t know what the laws are in Russia regarding bear interaction with humans. If the cameraman opted to stop the bear, he may have had to marry it so that it can get citizenship. Who knows.
