The famous Bob from the movie Cool Runnings is said to have been stolen from a bar in Calgary, Canada, and we have a lot of questions for him.
You know one thing – the bobsled that appears in a 1993 film classic that tells the true story of the early days of the Jamaican bobsled team that participated in the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary.
The cult film featuring John Candy, Leon Robinson, Malik Yoba, Doug E. Doug and Rawl Lewis grossed almost $155 million (£120 million) worldwide, and the Disney team left the swinging pendulum swinging at Calgary’s Ranchman’s Bar.
A fragment of the souvenirs was placed outside the bar where it was hung 6 meters from the ground, so of course there is some confusion about how exactly it was stolen.
Calgary police confirmed the theft and said he was between 21 and 25 years old. October, and the thieves now demand his return.
The poor Bible says that real estate agent Rob Campbell, who sells the now empty bar, said he had left a sense of breakthrough after noticing the sled.

I feel like I’ve been beaten in the stomach, it’s just a disgusting feeling and my stomach has fallen, he said on Facebook. It wasn’t something that was on the front porch… It hung 20 feet off the ground and four men had to set it up.
He explained that the sled, which would cost about $10,000 (£7,700), was fastened with chains and bolts, he said: Somebody had to make an effort.
The police have now opened an investigation and offer a reward for the return of the bobsled. She asks anyone who has information about the location of the bobsled to report it.
Devon Harris – a member of the original Jamaican Olympic team – called the attack selfish.
He told the Canadian press: What are you gonna do with the Jamaican bobsled? Bring it back so we can all enjoy it. Why do you want to be the only person? It’s selfish.
Devon asked the thief to return the sled so that everyone could enjoy it, he added: Give him back to me… I have no idea what they’re gonna do with that sled. There’s nothing they can do about it, is there?
Cool Runnings first appeared on the big screen almost 20 years ago, and director John Turteltaub said last month about the film that the bosses are afraid that people won’t be able to understand the Jamaican accent of the actors in the film.

After talking to The Guardian, he said… The main characters had such a perfect Jamaican accent that they were afraid that the Jamaicans wouldn’t understand them. Jeffrey Katzenberg, then chairman of the Walt Disney Studios, was very upset.
John did: I started to fear he’d send me away if I couldn’t make her talk like Sebastian’s crab in The Little Mermaid.
But instead of finding some strange reason why they should relax and at the same time present the dignity of their Caribbean heritage, I just mumbled: I get fired if you don’t talk like Sebastian, they laughed and saved my job.
