The video is believed to have been filmed on the Olympic Game Farm in Sequim, Washington state.
The farm is famous for being home to a group of 19 so-called ‘waving bears’ – retired show bears who politely greet their visitors.
They are then rewarded with a slice of bread, which is often thrown as shown in the video.
The farm was a movie set and animal repository for Walt Disney Studios from the 1950s into the 1970s, Vice reported.
