  • + 41
 Can I be the new intern ?
  • + 11
 and apparently bears Wink
  • + 39
 everyone should be able to break a collarbone and be able to 3 on the first day back
  • + 13
 I do now beleive that he has got 'The' ultimate setup for living, riding and socialising.. Image waking up to Semunak 3 tabling outside of your window

 Semenuk* Autocorrect's fault
  • + 3
 watching this video is making me look forward to getting up and half 6 in the morning to do 9.5hours of graft all day and still probably get payed less than this guy!
  • + 65
 I have an intern who gets me beers...........she's called my wife............though she can't build jumps.
  • + 41
 PB contest for Semenuk's internship...
  • + 9
 i would do anything for that intern job
  • + 2
 I think that would be an awesome contest!!!
  • + 3
 Intern looks so stocked at 4:33!
  • + 7
 not to mention that was a switch 3... this would be the ultimate cribs episode
  • + 3
 Good Thing they didn't run over the RED that would be about $60,000 down the drain lol.
  • + 13
 Competetion for the internship. You have to down 4 pints of milk, build a jump, fetch and open 6 beers and then remove a bear from a living room. Fastest time wins... tup

 Now we know how to get Semenuk to smile...let a bear lick his face Razz

The vid is a mountain biker's wet dream... add some chicks and it's heaven on earth.
  • + 1
 yeah, its missing one important component indeed.
[Reply]
  • + 16
 Ye guys hung out till 9.30!!.... Yer fuckin crazy!!!!!!!!!!

 That's just what I thinking hahaha

 Cool video, their place looks like a dream setup (especially with the airbag). I have two questions. What was the deal with the bear? Did they bring it in to play a prank on Intern? Where are all the girls?
  • + 7
 did you watch the whole video? they explained that it was a prank...
  • + 2
 Maybe I need to watch it again. It seemed like getting a trained bear would be a lot of effort for a prank that didn't seem to have that much of a payoff. Intern didn't really seem fazed by it.
  • - 12
 Im not too stoked on the idea of this series turning into a second Fantasy Factory, theres nothing more awful than watching a bunch of sports dudes trying to act out some lazily scripted prank scenario for the sake of trying to sell their lives as oh-so-crazy. Granted, I didnt expect this to become as "real" as that behind-the-scenes-at-Crankworx video the Freeride Entertainment guys did with Bearclaw (loved than one), however in my mind this one seems a tad too "made for TV". Theres nothing I love more than watching real antics and behind the scenes stuff (Id kill to watch the Cedric Gracia Gong Show) but this bear thing seemed a little staged. But maybe they were simply unlucky with how it turned out. Watching that bear making out with Semenuk was pretty entertaining though. I hope theyll focus on the riding in future episodes, the trail part was reeeeally good.
  • + 13
 HA. where are the girls? No matter how cool your dirt piles in your yard are, don't forget we are all dirt bag mountain bikers.
  • + 17
 it would have been better if the bear stood up, unzipped a hidden zipper and Cam McCaul stepped out.
  • + 9
 The Claw would be a better fit.
  • + 2
 I'm with you TrueLies, I said more or less the same but neg props were given to me LOL
  • + 2
 @conv3rt Kyle Strait wouldve fit better.
  • + 3
 haha, okay even better...McCaul, Claw, AND Strait step out of the bear suit....wait no, too weird.
  • + 3
 @conv3rt thats sounds like the beging of a bad joke. "So McCaul, Claw, and Strait step out of bear suit..,"

 freakin' FANTASTIC! That house is so badass by itself. All the other stuff is so over the top awesome. That view from the house to the backyard watching people pull jumps and what not is priceless!
[Reply]

 Is there any rider more consistent at throwing down huge tricks other than Semenuk?
  • + 5
 hmm, bearclaw is pretty consistant at throwing massive 3's off of big ass drops
[Reply]
  • + 3
 semenuk is lucky that bear isn't using his broken collarbone as a toothpick to pick... well... pieces of semenuk out of its teeth.

[Reply]
  • + 1
 He's a lucky guy but who pays for all of that?
  • + 1
 All of them...
  • + 1
 Red Bull has sings up everywhere so they are paying for the backyard. But Brandon bought the house and property.
  • + 1
 How do you know that? Lol
  • + 1
 Like...seriously, I know Brandon personally and I don't even know that...
  • + 4
 Well he said in the video that he bought the property.... Red Bull is his major sponsor, he is now doing an 18 episode internet series that thousands if not millions of people will see and they have "Red Bull" painted on just about everything. I'd put money on red bull chipping in.
