Russian Bear's Tricks Look Oddly Human, Totally Awesome (VIDEO)

YouTube user AmazingLife247's video of one "very talented Russian bear," showcases a brown beast clapping, Hula Hooping, balancing on a chair, and playing a trumpet.

Hoax or not, the bear's performance is altogether hypnotizing.

Is it the real deal or completely fake? Let us know in the poll below.
