Bear Fight Hat
Where are you from?
Originally Russia, but I spent a good bit of time in China being made as well. Then I ended up in Ashville, NC where I did nothing but inhale a lot of second hand smoke. Finally I ended up in ATL thanks to Reed Elliot who rescued me from the hippies.
Who do you work for?
Anyone that is willing to put up with me really! Most of the time you can find me anywhere around the Ponce area of Atlanta. El Bar or The Local. I’m on a mission to spread Bear Fight magic across the world. So basically, anywhere that serves Guinness, Baileys, Jamison, Jager and Red Bull is where I can get down to business. If you come to ATL, you better come find me. We’ll “do work” together.
What are your Current Project(s)?
Getting people drunk out of their minds, getting party kids sick, making fun of douchebags, making fun of hipsters, being-a-hat-and-wearing-a-hat at the same time, jamming out to DJ Cristo Disco on Thursday and Friday Nights, and world-domination.
Who would you love to work with?
Anyone that’s Irish, the dude from Man vs. Food, Zangief from Street Fighter (Russia represent!), kute gurlz, Winnie the Pooh (he’s kind of my hero), and anyone interested in a par-tay!
If you had to give all your sneakers away to charity except for one pair, which ones would you keep?
Paws down, my Nike SB Three Bears Dunk Highs! But i don’t really have feet considering I’m a hat.
What’s on your iPod right now?
Bear vs. Shark, Minus the Bear, Grizzly Bear, Panda Bear, Grumpy Bear, Seabear, Volcano the Bear, Art Bears, Message to Bears, Bear Slayer and the Keep it Hood Mixtape by Slugger.
What’s your Favorite ATL food?
My favs is definitely the Shepard’s Pie at Bookhouse. I couldn’t kill a better meal.
What’s your Favorite ATL hangout?
Thats an easy one, El Barz on your head!
What are your Pet Peeves?
People who think they can do Bear Fights and then throw up 10 seconds after trying one, people that don’t finish their Bear Fights, Care Bears (amature shit), people who spill drinks on me, people that try to make requests for music at El Bar, people that give me dirty looks for having a good time, people that call them “Bear Claws”… They’re called “Bear Fights”. It’s not that hard… get it right… and especially loud pandas.
Big shout outs to all my homebears back home in Russia, I miss you guys! Also, shout outz to everyone that made me. My drink-pushing homies in TX. Aaron for pushing Bear Fights in Chi-town. Pablo and Megan in Barcelona, taking Bear Fights internationally. Big ups to the Party Wolf. StreetLocal crew! Thanks a million to Rosa for giving me a hook to hang on at El Bar. Reed for rescuing me from Ashville and bringing me to El Bar that night and introducing me to the EC/Process boys. Without them I wouldn’t be as popular as I am now and I would probably just be sitting in a costume store wasting my life away.
