Interesting Combo...

**This is gonna be funny!**

Will Ferrell has done some crazy stunts, but nothing could top his adventure on the Discovery Channel's Man vs. Wild.

For the first time, the show's host Bear Grylls -- an ex-Special Forces soldier and survival expert -- went on a two-day joint expedition with the comedian in the Swedish hinterland, the Discovery Channel announced Thursday.

"Pairing one of the toughest men alive with one of the funniest will be an absolute riot," said John Ford, the president of Discovery Channel. "I can't wait to watch."

Armed with only the most basic survival equipment, Grylls took Ferrell through the paces of real life survival in the ice-bound mountain and glacier ranges in the far north of Sweden.

Typical of the series, Grylls showed the actor -- who took part in the show to promote his upcoming adventure comedy, Land of the Lost -- what it takes to find food in the forests. They even drink their own urine and bite into reindeer eyeballs.

"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 said in a statement to

What else did the duo do in those 48 hours?

They tandem-abseiled off of a helicopter, rappelled down hundred foot frozen waterfalls, improvised snow shoes from saplings and built a shelter to stay warm overnight in freezing temperatures.

"Will did an amazing job in sub-zero, very unforgiving conditions," Grylls said. "He trusted me when it mattered and we survived. And he has definitely had an adventure! He should be very proud of how he performed."

The special episode will air on the Discovery Channel in early June.
