Revenant bear's cameo and bizarre teenage tantrum, it's your comments of the week

Here are your best bits from the last seven days.

Snowboarder Kelly Murphy was cruising down the slopes in Japan and singing along to Rihanna’s song ‘Work’ when an angry bear came into shot behind her. Fresh from seeing the brutal scene in blockbuster The Revenant, Showbiz Babyy saw an uncanny resemblance.

That’s the same bear from The Revenant

Seth Curry, NBA superstar Steph’s younger brother, has been in stunning form for the Sacramento Kings of late. And his impeccable timing will more than likely have played him into a massive deal for next season. It brought back memories of a certain Togolese footballer for Setanta Landers.

Playing well right before contract negotiations. He’s the adebayor of the NBA
