A lifelike Polar Bear wandered through the streets of the British capital on Tuesday morning (January 27th), leaving commuters bewildered at the sight of the unusual acquaintance.
The eight foot tall puppet animal first stunned joggers and caused quite a stir when strolling through the Hampstead Heath Park in North London before making his way to Charing Cross Underground station attempting to board a train. Commuters on the train turned their heads when they noticed the giant polar animal walking along the platform.
It eventually reappeared in between crowds of tourists who were crossing the Thames river via Millennium Bridge towards London's Southbank. Many people stopped to take a picture of the animal with many people commenting how realistic it looked.
The giant animal was unleashed as part of a promotional stunt to mark the launch of channel Sky Atlantic's latest TV offering, "Fortitude" Filmed both in the UK and Iceland, "Fortitude" sees an all star cast including Academy Award nominee Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon and Christopher Eccleston. Fortitude will premiere on January,29th on UK and US television. Check out the video below to the see the "Bear" in action.
