It’s the video getting all the clicks this week. And it is fake.

Can you tell why? A bunch of Redditors certainly had fun doing so.

This picture is but one example.

It may be fake but it is still fun to watch, as Redditor BashfulArtichoke puts it:

“Regardless of the authenticity, I enjoyed this video. … It was a compelling and clever use of a GoPro. You can’t expect the average filmmaker to have a Hollywood CGI budget. That bear looked absolutely fantastic considering an amateur budget. Thanks for posting [this], it was a great find.”

Just make sure to let your co-workers in on the truth.

Bear attacks on bicyclists aren’t unheard of though. Here’s how two bikers reacted when they were charged twice by a bear in Jasper.
