      I didn't expect it to be that emotionally effective. But it struck a nerve instantly with the first hug. The music definitely helped.

            Just let all the disabled folks cut in front of you…

    • dan

      I could use a hug right now.

  • D'oh

    *sigh* I could use a hug too… Gotta love downer-days.

      I prefer that clip with that slim but VERY busty girl with the 'Free Hugs' shirt. If you don't know it; she targets men that are with a partner. The looks on (mostly) the partner's faces are priceless (as in: do this and it will be the end of you! etc.).

      – the one you love to hate

    • swisschiver

      the sound is also awesome…

  • Donal

    I was not expecting that… quite moving.

    • Gstr

      Because it's only possible in commercials.. unfortunately

      • Pete

        Nah, people do stuff like this just for kicks… and then the advert guys steal the good ideas. And in this case I don't care because its advertising an amazing cause.

        Loved this – wasn't expecting the "twist" at the end.

    • Stan_Dalone

      fuckin awesome

    bear hugs make most days better… bare hugs as well…

    • Underbaker

      Honestly I thought it would unmask and Pedo Bear would be there. So where is Paula with her free hugs since everyone wants one.

    • cjuncosa

      But what if its a bare bear?

  • pounding the gap

    now its time for burn your bra

    • MonkeyMadness

      Go be a heartless dick somewhere else.

  • Bluto

    Ain't this the truth. You see a big cuddly bear and you can't help but to want to hug it. But if it is just a visibly disabled person, most wouldn't even give him the time of day.

    • JAFitC

      On the other hand, most of us don't give the time of day to people who are not visibly disabled either, unless (A)we already know them or (B)they are physically attractive.

          In the video, we didn't expect the person to be visibly disabled, however it is revealed towards the end of the video, that the person inside the lovable bear suit was in fact visibly disabled. This revelation appealed to our emotions and caused us to reflect on our treatment of those who are less fortunate yet still full of heart.

          • Tiago

            I am not visibly disabled and I'm pretty sure that if I stood there with arms open, without any friendly costume, no one would want to come closer. Just like it would happen with a visibly disbled person. In fact, they would probably have more chances for it to happen than me, I guess.

      • Malkintosh22

        Option B is the cool option.

        See what I did there?

    • osborne

      So sad, but true. I have a feeling that if this was New York, the bear would have been spit on and beaten up.

      • j22

        Why did this make me laugh?

      • Bluto

        I think you are referring to Philadelphia. At least at an Eagles game. Hell they beat the shit out of Santa Clause once or twice…

    That's a feel-gooder for sure.

    Hahaha i was expecting some funny/creepy/scaring kids kind of thing… but yeah now i want to hug Baloo. lol

  • Commando00

    Very uplifting video…….sends a strong message we should all listen to

    Thanks Chive!!

    • Troll of Truth

      I enjoyed the video very much but I haven't treated disabled people any different than I treated people I just don't know in the past. And I think that is probably true for quite a few people.

      • Commando00

        Don't take my comment personal…….it's not "the masses" but instead the few unintelligent / uneducated people that can make a disabled person feel outcasted by their words and actions

  • sergio

    thats humanity at its best chive on mr. bear…

    • ***TheMoreYouKnow

      You need a comma

      • PapaPedoBear

        you need a hug.

    • morebeer

      I wish I could agree, but disarming people by dressing in a bear suit doesn't say much for humanity. It would have meant more to me if it was just him with a sign saying he needed a hug. Right now it tells me that people would prefer to hug a cartoon character than a person. I don't mean to hate on it though

  • Cyberfunker

    a lesson for all of us.

  • Verbal_Kint

    The power of a hug, and human contact is immeasurable. That was beautiful and sad…
