A man will do just about anything when braving the frozen tundra. And for an upcoming episode of the Discovery Channel series Man vs. Wild, Will Ferrell even drank urine.

Joining Bear Grylls for 48 hours in Sweden's ice-bound mountain ranges, Ferrell tandem-abseiled off a helicopter, rappelled down hundred-foot frozen waterfalls and made snow shoes from saplings.

"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.

The interesting drink choice was paired with a meal of reindeer eyeballs.

"Will did an amazing job in subzero, very unforgiving conditions," Grylls said. "He should be very proud of how he performed." He added to Variety: "He trusted me when it mattered and we survived."

Ferrell's episode of Man vs. Wild will air the first week of June on Discovery, coinciding with his Land of the Lost debut, which hits theaters June 5.
