If any of us wanted to see a bear, we'd probably visit the local zoo. British photographer George Turner had something a little more extreme in mind when he booked a three-night stay in a tiny plywood shack in the middle of the Finnish Suomussalmi Forest—the brown bear capitol of the world.

This gutsy and bear-loving photog came away with some scary stories but even more astonishing photos. Watching these majestic and complex creatures eat, play, fight and explore, we almost forget bears are wild animals!

Quirky Reverse Mortgage Rap Commercial Is Bringing Sexy Back

Quirky Reverse Mortgage Rap Commercial Is Bringing Sexy Back

  Integrity 1st Mortgage has kissed boring commercial breaks goodbye. Complete with sick beats, rap lyrics, and eye candy, this hilarious commercial takes everything you'd see in the hottest music videos and remixes it with the most unsexy topic ever—reverse mortgages! Featuring the one-and-only elderly gangsta poet John Dennehy, Sr., "Rainy Day Fund" is a memorable take on an exhausted topic that might just get us calling for home loans. John joined RTM hosts for a chat and called his rapping skills "Prime" and certainly not subprime. This wasn't even Integrity 1st' earliest excursion into film/music! Just the day before "Rainy Day Fund" dropped, their awesome ad team released a dramatic trailer for a fictional reverse-mortgage-themed movie. View Now
