Watch Bears mascot ‘Staley Da Bear’ freak out unsuspecting patrons at costume shop (Video)

Whoever came up with the prank of the Bears' mascot playing dead at a Halloween costume shop, just to scare unsuspecting patrons walking by ... congratulations. Because this video is hilarious.

The mascot, "Staley Da Bear," ran this gag during the "Inside the Bears" show from the Bears website on a number of customers, who didn't assume there was a person inside the mascot suit sitting on the chair. The bear took quite a delight in the customers he really freaked out, although he seemed a bit sorry when he made a baby cry.

Just a reminder: When you're out trick or treating keep an eye out for all pranks, especially if you see a NFL mascot.
