Will Ferrell drinks urine with Bear Grylls




Let there be no doubt about Will Ferrell’s devotion to the art of moviemaking. The man drank urine to promote a film. In an upcoming episode of the Discovery Channel series Man vs. Wild, host Bear Grylls invited the Hollywood adventurer to join him in exploring the Swedish hinterlands.

The duo braved subzero temperatures, jumped out of a helicopter, rappelled down a frozen waterfall, fashioned snowshoes out of tree saplings and hunted for food in the icy forest. And then Grylls showed the star of the upcoming Land of the Lost how to drink his own urine. Apparently it went great with the reindeer eyeballs he served him.

“To be able to participate in an episode of Man vs. Wild was a thrill of a lifetime, even though I did get urine-drunk, which is sad,” Ferrell joked to Variety. Ferrell’s Scandinavian sojourn will air the first week of June on Discovery, and Land of the Lost hits theaters June 5.
