Spike Jonze might perform with a bear tonight at Opening Ceremony in New York. What? A bear? Well, maybe. Our sister site Racked NY reports: "When we called the store for more details, the sales associate who answered laughed nervously and referred us to PR. We're waiting on a response, but we feel like any outcome is probably a win. If it were a real bear, it would be awesome. If it were a person in a bear costume, that would be awesome too. And if it's a big burly lumberjack guy with a beard, well, that would be cool as well." [RNY]
