Soft Drink Commercial ‘Didi Cay’

What better way to emphasize a thirst quenching drink than with a polar bear in the desert!

Dijital Yapımevi Production House of Istanbul, Turkey approached us to help produce a TV advert for their client, Didi Cay Soda.  

Bringing a realistic Polar Bear and performing in the Egyptian desert might seem like a very daunting task – but we came prepared!

Armed with a great team of assistants that could help us reset scenes quickly, we  kept our specialist performer in peak condition in the desert heat. 

It certainly made for an interesting filming experience that we won’t forget! 

Appearance on Nickelodeon’s “The Haunted Hathaways”

Nickelodeon’s TV series “The Haunted Hathaways” had an upcoming episode which called for an ice cream selling bear…

…And Nanuq was more than happy to oblige!

This was one of Nanuq’s first projects – the costume was brand new to the AnimatronicBear Family at the time! 

We have provided our performing bears to multiple Nick projects including 2012’s “A Fairly Odd Christmas”. Thanks to Dionne, Nikki, Jonathan and the rest of the team for a fun project!!

Appearance on Lidl’s “Beautifully Normal – 2017 Christmas Advert” 

“We all know that Christmas is never really like this. Come on, a pony and a polar bear? It’s time we did Christmas our way!”

This was a great scene for Nanuq in a shoot filled with fun out in Berlin.

We know what you’re thinking.

Yes. The pony was real.

Fortunately it did not seem too concerned by our polar bear! 

However, it certainly was not as well trained and paid no attention to the director throughout the shoot! 

*Please note that our Realistic Polar Bear Costume comes as a PACKAGE: Nanuq is ONLY available with our trained professional operators.

Is Nanuq the bear for the job...
