The real-life taxidermied animal that inspired the movie “Cocaine Bear” will officiate a Kentucky couple’s wedding Monday at the Fun Mall Museum in Lexington.
“Y’all are cordially invited,” wrote the Kentucky For Kentucky store, where the bear is on display, in a virtual invitation posted Friday to social media.
“Cocaine Bear presides over and affirms the union of Alexandra & Amanda on this day: Monday, March the 27th, 12 pm,” the announcement continued. “Dress up, join us and wish the couple well,” it added in the caption.
The Post has contacted Kentucky For Kentucky for comment.
This will be Cocaine Bear’s first wedding ceremony, the museum’s co-founder, Griffin VanMeter, told Roadside America last month.
“As long as you feel that the person marrying you — like Cocaine Bear — has the authority, then that marriage can be binding here in Kentucky.”
The actual coke-ingesting black bear, also known as Pablo Escobear, died from a cocaine overdose in 1985 after drug dealer Andrew Thornton dropped 88 pounds of the drug — in three duffel bags — from an airplane over near Blairsville, Georgia.
He was then stuffed and shopped around to exhibits in Georgia, Tennessee, and Nevada before attracting tourists to The Bluegrass State, where he’s been since 2015.
The story of the cocaine bear has once again gained relevance as the Elizabeth Banks-directed, R-rated film of the same name hit theaters on Feb. 24.
Loosely based on real-life events, the movie shows the CGI animal surviving and becoming an addict, willing to kill anyone who gets in her way.
The movie — which has grossed over $78 million worldwide — follows an ensemble of locals, tourists, criminals and police offers who come together to try to survive the bear’s drug-fueled frenzy.
After the film came out, though, some “woke” viewers complained the new film was “encouraging drug use” and “not suitable for kids.”
