Benny The Bull Intervenes After Guy Is Caught Ignoring Girlfriend On Kiss Cam

Leave it to one of America’s most beloved sports mascots to come to the rescue of a woman apparently being completely ignored by her boyfriend while caught on an arena “kiss cam.”

During the Celtics-Bulls game at Chicago's United Center on Saturday, the kiss cam caught a Celtics fan and his girlfriend having a fight, and the Chicago team’s Benny the Bull mascot was simply not having it, local outlet WGN reports.

In a statement, Bulls Manager of Corporate Communications Beth Esler confirmed that the incident was actually a skit staged to help rally fans and keep them engaged in the game.

Benny’s chivalrous (and hilarious) act may have provided some good luck to the Bulls, who won the game 109-104 in overtime.
