'Alaskan Bush People' Bear Brown Rocks Ryan Gosling Scorpion Jacket from 'Drive'

By Gary Trock

Bear Brown is known for being extreme, so it only makes sense that one of his favorite movies is an action-packed flick.

The "Alaskan Bush People" star debuted his new gear to fans, posing for the camera and showing off a white silk jacket with an embroidered scorpion on the back.

Just going for a “Drive," Bear captioned his photo. The line is a clear nod to Ryan Gosling's 2011 film, "Drive," about a Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver.

The jacket, in the movie, is apparently a reference to the fable of "The Scorpion and The Frog," which addresses dark themes about morality.

The costume designer for "Drive," has spoken on the jacket, which cemented Gosling as a style icon in Hollywood.

Erin Benach revealed she painstakingly created the jacket after being unable to find something on the market, and that it took months to perfect the design. Since the movie, tons of replications of the jacket have been created, especially for Halloween costumes.

It's unclear where Bear picked up his "Drive" jacket from, but he's definitely wearing it with swagger ... even though there aren't many roads to drive on in the Washington wilderness.


His jacket was involved in one controversial incident, as Bear was wearing it when he fired off a gun into the forest at night and caught some unwanted attention from angry fans.

As we reported, the "Alaskan Bush People" star told fans one of his favorite hobbies is shooting at night, however when he unloaded a magazine into the woods people claimed he exhibited a lack of gun safety.
