Meet Brody the Bear: Kodiak Bear, Actor, & Berne Apparel's Mascot

New, 1 comment

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

This is Brody, one of the most successful bear actors of our time, and the mascot of Berne Apparel, a 90+ year old company that manufacturers professional workwear.

Brody is a male Kodiak bear who's appeared in dozens of television shows, films, and commercials—including Good Morning America, Grizzly Park, and a Rice Krispie Treats ad. He sometimes makes special appearances, like this one (above) at a Big R store opening. Rawr!
