Will Ferrell is about to squeeze so much precious, life-saving water from animal shit into his chapped mouth it’s crazy. From the AP:
The [Discover] channel said Wednesday that Ferrell and series host Grylls spent two days in Sweden’s mountains and glaciers for a “Man vs. Wild” special.
With Grylls as his guide, Ferrell rappelled down frozen waterfalls, scavenged for food in the forest _ including reindeer eyeballs _ and improvised snow shoes from saplings.
Ferrell said being part of “Man vs. Wild” was the “thrill of a lifetime.” In turn, Grylls said he did an amazing job in unforgiving conditions.
The episode is set to air in early June, coinciding with the release of Ferrell’s new comedy-adventure film “Land of the Lost.”
This sounds potentially amazing if you ignore the boring mutually-masturbatory quotes from Ferrell and Grylls. “You’re the prettiest!” “No, you’re the prettiest!” But I’m surprised there haven’t been more celebrity cameos on that show. Matt Damon performing some Krav Maga on a dessicated antelope carcass to promote Bourne Ultimatum. The Jonas Brothers having to find a dry crevasse safe from the gusting winds where they can safely perform an acoustic set to drive the circling wolves away to promote Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience. And cetra.
DVR ‘er done.
