Justin Bieber song scares bear; saves man’s life

“And I was like brown bear, brown bear, brown bear, ohh noo…”

Can a song save your life? Apparently it can, and no one knows that better than Igor Vorozhbitsyn, who was fishing in northern Russia when his ringtone, set to the hit Justin Bieber song, Baby, sent a pouncing brown bear fleeing for the hills.

Vorozhbitsyn, who suffered multiple injuries in the attack, explained to the New York Post that his granddaughter loaded the pop star’s song onto his phone as a joke, and admitted “that sort of ringtone isn’t to everyone’s taste.” Well, because a certain song wasn’t to a certain animal’s taste, that joke saved Vorozhbitsyn’s life. The bear now joins millions of mammals who dislike the young pop star’s sound, but Vorozhbitsyn isn’t complaining: “I couldn’t believe my luck when the phone went off and he fled.”

Like Anne Frank, it is not yet known whether the survivor is a confirmed Belieber, but it’d be hard not to be after his near-death experience. Now campers know two strategies to avoid death by bear: crawl into a fetal position… or play a Justin Bieber song. I guess even bad music has a purpose. ~Daniel Horowitz

    Goes to show bears have better taste in music than pre-adolescent girls.

    I agree with Andrea. Hopefully he will STAY in the U.S. and become a citizen there—–I for one don’t want him to be associated with Canada.

    Was it the song that scared the bear away or Bieber’s voice. Apparently the bear has taste and knows to run away from bad music

    All your comments are a sign of jealousy. Why couldn’t you become a huge star at such a young age? So, instead, you run him down. Shame!

    Jax…Jealousy…really. Do you honestly believe that we are jealous of Justin`s bad behavior such as his several arrest on DUI`s, Vadalalism, Assault & Criminal battery were he spit on another human being. Or when he`s been stopped and arrested for drag racing which shows his total lack of respect for others on the road and could end up killing someone. But lets not forget his little scene where he urinated in a restaurant kitchen or when he has on several occasions come very late for his concerts showing no respect for his fans. Maybe we should be jealous of his home or bus parties where he entertains drugs and has been caught a few times.

    Justin does not have any special talent. He doesn`t compose his songs & there are thousands of cute kids out there with the same singing voice. He was just very lucky to be noticed.

    As for you Jax…. in 5-10 years from now your idol crust will disappear and you will look back and ask yourself `What did I see in this guy’.

    Proving that bears have better musical taste than your average teeny-boppers…

    Well put Sue. And besides I am also wondering about something else to do with the song, they say to make lots of noise when out in the woods. I wonder if the song startled him.
