So "I'm possessed by the ghost of John Belushi" is apparently a valid political platform in Canada now. Let's hope the other party finds a nice John Candy type to counteract the curse.
The Cute "Climbing Fail" Cub Was Trying To Escape The Drone Filming It
In this adorable viral video, a small bear cub is trying to climb a steep snowy cliff to get to his mother at the top, but keeps sliding further and further down right as he's about to make it. Eventually he does make it, and everyone watching over your shoulder on the subway starts clapping. A true roller coaster of emotions.
Isn't it remarkable that somebody managed to capture such an endearing moment? Unfortunately, the whole ordeal only happened because it was being captured.
Multiple drone operators, bear experts, and drone-operating bear experts pointed out that the animals were probably scared shitless of the flying robot doggedly pursuing them. Bears aren't bad climbers and know how difficult a path like that would be, so it's likely that they only took it because they were being stalked by the drone. Also, note that the camera doesn't zoom in every time the mother freaks out -- that's the drone itself getting dangerously closer. So this is less like an awkward, cutesy private moment, and more like paparazzi harassing a star until they trip and fall off a cliff.
