Bublé recalled that the incident during an appearance on 'The Kelly Clarkson Show'

Michael Bublé is opening up about his brush with death.

The “Everything” singer, 48, recounted the story on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Tuesday of how he had come upon the unique — but “aggressive” — animals in Canada after attending a party with actor Berry Pepper.

“I think, in the moment, we’re like, ‘You know what we should do? We should like race down the beach.’ And so me and him and another guy came running down this beach, and a guy that lived there just started swearing,” Bublé shared.

“[He was] literally swearing at us and just screaming — I mean screaming bloody murder,” he continued.

Bublé said that they didn’t know it at the time, but the man had been trying to warn them to stay away from the creatures who had been lounging along the beach.

“We didn’t realize, we were running to our certain death,” the singer said. “Because there were polar bears all down the beach. And yes, they’re the most aggressive — but God they’re so cuddly.”

“They’re beautiful. Yeah, and [in] those Coca Cola commercials, they’re like, ‘Snuggle,’” Clarkson, 41, jokingly chimed in, while wrapping her arms in an air hug.

“Yeah, but they will eat you,” Bublé quipped to the host.

The “Haven’t Met You Yet” singer said he still couldn’t wrap his mind around the fact that the whole thing had happened, and he had come that close to death.

“Sometimes I wonder about that, how close I was to being like a little polar bear lunch," he laughed.

Clarkson added, “Who would've thought there were just polar bears — nobody ever hears that. ‘Oh, there’s polar bears hanging on the beach.’ It just doesn’t happen."

The star admitted his wife takes charge in the kitchen, revealing, “Mommy’s the cook, [the kids] want mommy’s food,” Bublé said.

“In the kitchen, she has this thing where she tells me to get out,” he said about trying to assist with food duties, joking that she does the same thing “in the bedroom, too, sometimes.”
