What Say You: Is This Video Of A Bear Chasing Oblivious Snowboarder Who Is Singing Rihanna Fake?
Just one day ago, we saw the proper way to scare away a bear – by cursing at it. However, this woman was so oblivious that she didn’t even get a chance to scream obscenities at the behemoth, instead she only sang a Rihanna song, which rightfully only seemed to piss off the bear more.
Kelly Murphy was snowboarding and too busy singing Rihanna’s “Work” to notice a giant bear that was right behind her and charging hard. Murphy was at Hakuba 47 Winter Sports Park in Japan where she took a selfie stick video of her snowboarding jaunt down the mountain. She records video of a bear chasing her, but is completely clueless and never notices that her life could be in danger.
Kelly’s description on YouTube:
OMG! I was going through my snowboarding videos and I found a bear chasing me!!! I nearly got eaten!!! This was at Hakuba 47 in Japan, filmed yesterday! Be careful people!!!
Without realizing her possible early demise, she speeds away from the huge bear stampeding after her.
But is it fake?
YouTube sleuths quickly classified the video as fake. Pointing out the weather at the resort didn’t match the video with a link to Hakuba 47’s Facebook providing sunny photos of that day. Internet detectives also stated that the bear in question is a brown bear, but the bears in that area are Asiatic black bears. There are reports of bear attacks in that area.
So is this an awesome, totally real video or is this bear faker than Leo’s bear in The Revenant?
Either way, with Kelly’s unmelodious rendition of an already horrible song, you kind of wish the bear was a bit faster to abruptly stop the noise.
