Fact or fiction?

Considering the uploader’s account was only created few days ago and the account only have 1 video, it’s probably some viral marketing shite.

Addendum: And I’m right;

Singapore Philips’ (pathetic yet successful?) foray into social media marketing promoting the new SensoTouch 3D.

“We acknowledge that the resemblance of the mascot to a live bear has caused some public concern in the neighbourhood where the mascot was sighted. We had anticipated the attention that the bear will draw but have no intention to cause any alarm. We would like to apologise for any concern caused,” the electronics giant said.

But the police, as well as tens of men and women from Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (Acres) and Wildlife Reserves Singapore who scoured the area for hours on Wednesday, were not amused.

On Wednesday night, a police spokesman said: “In response to media queries on the sighting of a ’bear’ in Ulu Pandan, Police confirm that we’re investigating an offence of Public Nuisance under Section 268 of the Penal Code.”

What a load of crap! 😡
