Earlier this week we asked the question: What’s up with the bears hanging from power lines around the area?

Well some of you guessed it: It’s some hipster art/event/act promotion. The people behind it are called Hearts Revolution / Hearts Challenger – an ice cream truck turned music group turned bedazzled ice cream truck playing music… we think. Some of the bears on their Tumblr site bear the words (get it?) “Fuck the Hype” and “Ride or Die,” which probably has something to do with a new album or… something. Not sure how the bear thing comes in, but hopefully they’ll message us back and clue us in!

The last time we wrote about things hanging from power lines, it was the red glittery shoes (that are still there, btw) put up by artist Manny Castro to advertise his show at Echo Park gallery iam8bit. Now joining the sun-soaked glitter shoes are stuffed teddy bears hanging from power lines all over Los Angeles, including Echo Park, West Hollywood, Silver Lake, and Los Feliz so far. We’ve heard the rumors, but the Franklin Avenue blog also asks the question we are asking – what’s up with all the hanging teddy bears?

It’s probably not some Build-A-Bear ad campaign, but we’re thinking something more like a some hipster art project and less like the Care Bears are going to sell you some drugs. Let us know if you’ve got the details.
