Shirtless Bear Fighter #1

Shirtless Bear Fighter #1


What else can I say about Shirtless Bear Fighter besides “shirtless bear fighter”? A sendup of 80s action heroes, it begins almost like the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Commando, except with a guy who’s really good at fighting bears. Why is he so good at fighting bears? FIND OUT HERE! Ludicrous, absolutely ridiculous, and a lot of fun.

@gmonkeyaustin @baddeacon That's on me, Trevor. I was in the process of signing up for Bad Idea when the shutdowns happened and I never followed up to get it done. Or, you can blame Adam because he's a feckless hooligan. -- Brad, ABC
