As politicians go, it’s fair to say that President Barack Obama is at the cooler end of the cool-dude spectrum. If you’re not familiar with the “cool-dude spectrum”, it’s a complex measuring system that takes in a myriad of factors such as potential-drinking-buddy-ability, suit-sharpness, sense of humour, and sport-skills.
But, just when you thought Obama couldn’t get anymore rad. Just when you thought bringing healthcare to millions more Americans, bringing down the world’s number one terrorist, passing significant Wall Street reforms, ending the war in Iraq, and improving the image of America abroad was enough to earn the POTUS a well-earned pint of IPA…news surfaces that he’s going to appear on Bear Grylls TV show.
Team Obama Bear Grylls? Yes, Yes Please
Yes, Bears Grylls, the same Bear Grylls who recently made Hollywood actress Michelle Rodriguez eat a rat stewed in her own piss. Yes, Bear Grylls, the same Bear Grylls who once hollowed out the inside of a camel and used it as a sleeping bag. That Bear Grylls, that very same one, is about to feature on the same television programme as Mr Obama.
President Obama will be joining survival expert and big-name television personality Bear Grylls for an episode of the NBC show Running Wild With Bear Grylls. The pair will be trekking through the Alaskan wilderness in order to highlight the impact of climate change in the Arctic. The White House announced the news yesterday.
The episode will air before the end of the year. Team Obama Bear Grylls? We can’t wait!
