Weary commuters will certainly have been more alert today after spotting this adult polar bear casually strolling around the Underground.
This super realistic 8ft long full-sized bear is the creation of a team of Hollywood special effects experts. The semi-animatronic puppet took 19 designers two whole months to construct and was animated by two animal pro character actors who also worked on ‘War Horse’.
The furry beast took walks around Hampstead Heath, Charing Cross and the South Bank.
Sky Atlantic commissioned the whole thing to celebrate the launch of their new arctic based crime thriller ‘Fortitude’ which premieres this Thursday January 29 at 9pm.
