Hey, Will Ferrell has a new movie coming out this week, have you heard? Yes, Land of the Lost comes out on Friday June 5, and of course he’s going around the normal talk show circuit. Sure, he’s been on Conan O’Brien this week, he hosted the season finale of Saturday Night Live, I’m sure he’s been on the Today Show, and a bunch of other ones, but the most interesting show for Will Ferrell to guest star on has got to be this week’s special episode of Man Vs Wild, this week called Men Vs Wild.
The episode premiered Tuesday on the Discovery Channel, but if you missed it, it will be re-airing tonight at 9pm and midnight ET/PT (get your TiVO/DVRs ready). Check out some videos from the episode here below.
For those who don’t know the show, Man Vs Wild follows British Special Forces badass Bear Grylls as he gets stranded in remote areas of the world and has to live off the land, find some form of local wildlife to eat, and show us normal folk how to survive our way back to civilization. In this special episode, Bear and Will are dropped into Sweden, and have to survive freezing temperatures, walking through snow drifts, and eating a reindeer. If you’re a fan of Will Ferrell, you’ll want to catch this episode and if you’re a fan of Man Vs Wild, well of course you’ll want to catch it, if only to see how a normal, fairly athletic guy deals with what Bear goes through. Plus, this has to be one of the best movie promo ideas I’ve ever seen.
