World record teddy bear toss

Reposted from 2011 with the insertion of a better-resolution video.  This year a recoerd 28,815 teddy bears were tossed onto the Calgary Hitmen's hockey rink.  Offered as a cheerful retreat from the grimmer news of the day.

Wikipedia has a page about teddy bear tosses for those unfamiliar with the ritual.


  1. I know this isn't how I'm supposed to think of it, but what I see is a massacre, piles of little furry bodies of dead teddy bears hurled onto the ice.

    (Just kidding, really. I think it's a hangover from when I was a kid and would get mad at something and throw my teddy bear or my dolls, and my mother would make a big fuss about how that was an awful thing to do to the poor creatures, and then I'd feel bad.)
