Viral Video Alert: Bear waves hello

Posted on December 14, 2011


How do you make a 7-second video go viral? First, include a great big grizzly bear in the shot. Second, wave at him and shout “Hi!” Third, somehow entice the bear to wave back. Cue laughter. That’s the long and – very – short of this video. We’ve seen it across several social media networks over the last few days. We’re not sure this bear is as friendly as he looks but luckily he’s behind a fence and our videographers are shooting from inside a car. It’s approaching 2 million views so go ahead and watch for 7 seconds. It’s cute and all.
