Bear Takes Over Man's Hot Tub, Drinks His Margarita, Becomes Internet Darling

The video featured above is so gosh darn cute and unexpected that you'll hardly be able to... bear it.

Okay, sorry. That was lame.

But this footage is still totally awesome.


Last Friday, a bear in Southern California wandered into a man's backyard jacuzzi, took a little dip with the jets on, and even took a swig of the man's margarita before casually moving on with the rest of his day.

Mark Hough explained to a local Fox affiliate that he initially heard leaves rustle and twigs snap before looking up and realizing this gigantic animal was climbing over his fence.

As one obviously ought to do, Hough responded to this sighting by making a run for it and finding shelter in his home.

But he turned his camera phone on after he discovered the bear was “bobbling away in the jacuzzi enjoying himself.”

Such enjoyment consisted of playing with the chlorinator and tossing the thermometer in the air, as you can plainly see in the footage above.

Hough had also made a margarita for himself.

He says the creature “popped out of the bushes, walked right over to the margarita, knocked it over and lapped it," not specifying if any salt was used to make the drink.

“He had his margarita, he had his jacuzzi, and now he’s ready for an hour nap," Hough told Fox upon seeing the bear just lounging around about an hour later.

Naturally, Twitter took extreme pleasure in this incident.

"He looks beary comfortable," wrote one Internet user who we hope is ashamed of himself.

Added another:

"This bear and I have the same holiday plans apparently. #FourthofJuly."

We love it.
