Bears Don’t Dig On Dancing

Hello homophobic hairy fuckers! This crazy comp is now closed. Ohhhh, sadness. It was so very extremely excellent watching all your videos. I’m quite stunned by how cool you all are… even when you’re wearing ears and dancing like idiots.

Below is a hand-picked selection of the coolest ones. Those of you whose videos we’d like to edit into the final clip will get an email soon!

Oh, and the overall winner… is… at the bottom!

My ace Lebanese fans. Yay.
Outstanding backyard choreography.

Great vid from gals who actually cut off and hollowed out the heads of teddy bears. Sick genius.

This fella needs to lay off the honey.

Genuine lol.

Minimalist from Exeter. Weirder and funnier than Napoleon Dynamite.

I think this might be the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.

Tap dancing Panda! About frickin time I reckon.

LIZA LIZA LIZA. We love her.

If it was a cuteness comp, this would sweep it.

Bear + crop top + back drop. Ha!

Ohhhhhhhh. So sweet!

Shell’s funky moves seem soporific for canines. Glow-stick bonus!

Ballroom Bears. I wanna hug’em.

Excellent Jazz Ballet in limited lounge space.

I think the mum’s a polar bear and the daughter’s some kind of brown bear. Cuteness.

And the number one coolest dancing bear is…

Oh yeah baby – Kevin Bacon is dead, long live the Smaco. Check the moves on this funky teddy. Damn!
