Did that bear from the Sochi opening ceremony look a little familiar to you? Well, it appears to be a distant cousin of Miley Cyrus's giant pink VMAs bears. The mechanical, ice-skating polar bear was one of three mascots to debut at the Winter Olympics kickoff, the other two being a leopard and a hare. And even without Miley jumping out of him, the blinking bear got all the attention. You can compare the bears with the GIF evidence below. See the resemblance?
