Enviro-Bear 2010 Made Flesh

The bear-faced cheek of it.

Remember the game about a bear driving a car? It happened. It actually happened. A bear drove a car.

A BEAR DROVE A CAR.

    Proof that games cause real life behavior.

  3. Garg says:

    I remember this was exactly what I thought when I saw this story earlier. Although I don’t think real bear had as much success as game bear.

  4. robrob says:

    How can that be?

  5. pipman300 says:

    you think that’s crazy, but there’s a war going on in the middle-east just like in call of duty modern warfare!

    you can’t make this stuff up!

  6. Dood says:

    Were there badgers involved?

  7. Inigo says:

    IT BEGINS

  8. tome says:

    The bear’s bloodshot eye makes the entire game for me.

  9. Jakkar says:

    This is why I love Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

    Thankyou Alec <3

  10. Navagon says:

    If you look very closely you’ll see that a bear made that game too.

  11. stahlwerk says:

    Bear is not in driver seat. He only co-pilot.

  12. unpossible says:

    I’ve been waiting for this post all day…

  13. subedii says:

    I will be thoroughly amazed if we ever get to use that tag ever again.

  14. lethu says:

    Oh nooo plz, surrealistic articles about bears driving cars don’t do well with sickness… Am I dying? Please comfort me…

    this bear is a big fan of the brothers in arms series of games:

      I love how nonchalantly it’s carrying that explosive ammo. I can imagine it whistling and maybe just tossing it in the air and catching it whilst waiting for a forest bus.

  16. stahlwerk says:

    I was wondering why there was a bare (ha!) radio lying on the dashboard, but then I realized that bear had RIPPED OFF THE DASHBOARD ITSELF.

    RIP AND TEAR!

    RIP AND TEAR!!

  17. Raum says:

    Game of the year, every year.

  18. Sigma Draconis says:

    Stephen Colbert is going to have a fit about this.

  19. DJ Phantoon says:

    Okay, guys. The bears won. Time to pack up and let them have the Earth. I can safely say we had a good run, but now I can’t run safely because BEARS CAN DRIVE CARS. Which is funny because a one ton animal can drive a car just twice his weight.

  20. TheSombreroKid says:

    i tweeted about this, thought i was so original making the connection :(.

    • Kommissar Nicko says:

      It’s a sad day when I learn about something that happened not more than an hour from my own home on a British computer gaming website.

      AND IN THE GAME?

  21. Hodge says:

    In the photo it looks like the bear is smoking a cigar. I heartily approve of this.

  22. Grunt says:

    Do we now get a ‘Based upon a True Story!” commemorative re-release of the game, replete with ripped-off dash and peanut butter sammich?

  23. CecilPhilpot says:

    I am thoroughly relieved that I’m not the only one who noticed the similarity!

  24. C4Cypher says:

    What is love?
    Baby don’t hurt me.
    Don’t hurt me.
    No more.
