Justin Bieber may have millions of fans worldwide, but Russia’s bears don’t appear to admire the pop brat’s music – which proved fortunate for one lucky fisherman.
Igor Vorozhbitsyn had his life saved by a Justin Bieber ringtone, when his mobile phone went off during a potentially fatal attack by a brown bear.
The 42-year-old was pounced on as he was walking to a favourite fishing spot in northern Russia’s Yakutia Republic and firmly believed that he was going to be killed.
Igor Vorozhbitsyn told the Austrian Times he was fishing in northern Russia’s Yakutia Republic when a bear attacked him. The man thought he was done for, but when the bear clawed at him, his cellphone went off. The ringtone, Justin Bieber’s “Baby,” caused the bear to run away.
The bear’s actions are completely understandable. Who among us hasn’t ran, screeching in a state of panic from the room when Bieber’s “Baby” is played?
Vorozhbitsyn said his granddaughter put the ringtone on his phone as a “joke.” It’s OK, dude. You can admit to being a Belieber. We will not judge you.
