Bear suit man. Awesome or just bat-shit crazy?

The video above is footage from a documentary about a guy named Troy Hurtubise. This guy is interesting because after surviving a bear attack, he had an epihpany (while watching Robocop) that he should build a suit impervious to bears that would be helpful in studying their habits or, I can only assume, beating the shit out of one as payback. Anyhow, 7 years and $150,000 later the bear suit was a reality and the documentary footage here shows him in the suit taking some savage beatdowns from 2 by 4's, crowbars, giant swinging logs and an automobile, but no bears. Truly the most mesmerizing thing you'll see all week. Trust me.
