Will Ferrell drank his own urine to survive in arctic conditions.
The 'Stepbrothers' star spent 48 hours in the far north of Sweden with TV survival expert Bear Grylls, who showed the Hollywood funnyman what extremes they needed to go to in order to last in the harsh weather.
Talking about his stint in the freezing temperatures, Ferrell said: "It was the thrill of a lifetime, even though I did get urine drunk, which is sad".
During the two days - which will be documented in a special episode of Grylls' TV show 'Man vs. Wild' - Will also had to abseil down a 100-foot waterfall, sleep in a snow shelter and eat reindeer eyeballs.
Speaking of Ferrell's achievements, Grylls said: "He did an amazing job in sub-zero, very unforgiving conditions. He trusted me when it mattered and we survived. He should be very proud of how he performed."
