Mustard Minute: Timofey Mozgov rides bear to promote Cavaliers’ winter hat giveaway
Thursday January 14th, 2016

Timofey Mozgov is a large Russian man and he knows the best way to travel around in the icy winter weather is not a dangerous and unwieldy car, but rather on the back of a grizzly bear.

Rather than actually trying to get their center on the back of an ursine transport, the Cavaliers actually used a bit of movie magic to make Mozgov appear to ride a bear in the new ad for the team’s upcoming winter hat giveaway.

Watch: Dirk Nowitzki try his hand at a Donald Trump impersonation

Mozgov is as talented a pitchman as he is a center, showing off his skills previously in ads from a trampoline play center, and a suburban Cleveland restaurant.
