This might be the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while (aside from a very well-written piece about the origin of Twitter’s @Horse_ebooks) and it comes from a team that looks like it is really trying to have a little more Internet fun lately. First came the Bruins’ daily Instagram takeovers. Now comes The Bear and the Gang.
Krista turned me on to this and it’s bleedin’ hilarious, done in the style of cheeseball 80s sitcoms introduction sequences, except it stars The Bear in his first appearance since he built himself a replica Stanley Cup…that Brad Marchand then used to wrap up a sandwich.
The Bear, who lives in a complete hovel of a “den” decorated with lots of Bruins memorabilia (including an Eddie Shore cardboard cutout and the replica Cup), apparently has a lot of friends.
Just the intro is available on the web right now. The intro teases for episode 1 available on the mobile app–too bad I don’t own a smartphone–but I’ve heard it will be ported to web sometime soon. Good! I’d like to be able to see it too! (Insert grumbling about mobile-only features here, such as Scoutmob’s move to have mobile-only deals available some days of the week as the featured deal.)
I hope this means the Bruins will do more fun things like this, though. It’s a good group of guys who look like they like to have fun. Plus, we fans want to see fun things too! C’mon Bruins, more fun stuff (on the web too please)!
