Tipp-Ex Hunter Shoots A Bear Gets An Interactive, Time Traveling Sequel

By Megan O'Neill 

Remember the awesome Tipp-Ex ‘Hunter Shoots a Bear’ interactive YouTube campaign that went viral back in Fall of September 2010 for letting viewers make the hunter to everything from dance with a bear to hug a bear, sing to a bear and even…hump a bear (seriously)?  Well folks, hold on to your seats because Tipp-Ex is back with a sequel and it is pretty freakin’ awesome.

The new campaign is called ‘Hunter and bear’s 2012 birthday party.’ This time, the hunter and the bear are sitting down to eat a lovely cake for Mr. Bear’s birthday when suddenly a meteor comes zooming towards earth.  The hunter thinks fast, grabs the Tipp-Ex and whites out the 2012 in the title.  Viewers are invited to enter any date into the title to view Mr. Bear’s birthday in any other year, to avoid the meteor, of course.

Check out the campaign below to see how many different time travelling birthday videos you can find—so far I’ve managed to find cavemen, ancient Egypt, gladiators, Excalibur, Aliens, Michael Jackson and more.  Some of the videos even have their own built-in interactive features.  Pretty sweet.  If you find a year you especially like, feel free to share it with us in the comments!
