A famous outdoorsman breaking down movie scenes, that’s never been done before, has it?
Blatant copy or not, it’s a format that can’t really be beaten whilst poking fun at an industry that takes itself a little too seriously. There’s arguably nobody better placed to call out the bullshit on the survival movies than our man Bear Grylls.
Bear has slept in camels, given himself an enema and showed us that it’s totally acceptable to drink your own piss in the name of survival whilst you find yourself stuck out in the arse end of Australia. Military credentials aside, these accolades alone are obviously more than enough for us to take anything he has to say as a gospel in terms of bushcraft and survival.
So yeah, Bear breaks down all the usual crap you see on Hollywood films and some of the better bits from TV, including Michael from the Office “tenting his pants.” If this video is anything to go, it seems as though Bear has pretty much been in every situation that is put in front of him.
Expect lines like”Bosh! Rock on top of the knife. In it goes. And that’s the end of the croc” to be thrown around as Mr Grylls shows off his back catalogue of survival anecdotes.
