Another day, another Russian bear promoting the World Cup.
Last Friday, it was a circus bear named Tim blowing a vuvuzela while being driven around Moscow after Russia’s World Cup win. And a couple days later, another incident occurred — a Russian breakfast show aired a segment in which brown bear had to place a soccer ball in one of two barrels — one marked with Russia’s flag or another with England’s flag. The point was for the bear to “predict” which country would win the next game.
The bear, who is wearing a soccer uniform and walking around on his hind legs, places the soccer ball in the barrel marked England.
