People Are Losing It Over This Teddy Bear With Crazy Long Legs

cell phone in class

As much as brands may strive for their content to go viral, it’s near-impossible to guess what will catch the internet’s fancy each week. Last week it was a disapproving Terry Crews debit card. This week it is a long-legged six-foot teddy bear threatening to wake people from their slumber at 3 a.m. in a cold sweat.

Twitter user @cooltonedcutie unearthed a series of photos and reviews of the bear from Amazon this week, and people cannot stop laughing at the reactions.

The JoyFay Giant Teddy Bear boasts that it is a massive 6.5 feet in length and 18 pounds, a perfect Valentine’s or holiday gift. The only problem is, well, the distribution of that size.

“I was expecting a the bear to be huge because it’s 6.5 ft right? No, all of its height is from its legs and the legs are longer than its upper body,” one reviewer wrote.

“The legs are like 4 feet long making the bear look like a creepy gumby thing,” another added.

“Where the emphasis is lacking is in the giant pendulous legs that haunt the lower two thirds of this stuffed freak bear. It appears to be some sort of bipedal giraffe bear hybrid.”

Still, the bear does have its defenders.

“You conclude that the legs are long,” co-founder Nikola Matic told Gizmodo.  “Long compared to what? Is it long compared to what you would have in your mind what traditional small teddy bears should be like? People just assume that they’re right because it’s like that.”

There are also some Twitter users who are staunch advocates of the bear.
