What a year it’s been for Bear Grylls! First, he partnered with the Scouts to launch a new Scouts Program aimed at the younger crowd. The “Squirrel Scouts” intends to support 4 and 5-year-olds in a variety of aspects including more outdoor learning opportunities. In a similar realm, Bear Grylls then launched an entire educational platform called BecomingX after enlisting the help of some of his A-list pals like Julia Roberts, Channing Tatum, Courteney Cox, and even astronaut Tim Peake.
Now, Bear Grylls is on to his latest adventure. Actually, you can join him from the very comfort of your couch. All you need for the release of his new interactive adventure Movie is a comfy outfit, some killer snacks, and a Netflix subscription. Keep reading for all the details.
Bear Grylls Debuts ‘Out Cold’
Growing up, you may have stumbled upon one of those “Choose Your Own Adventure” books. If not, don’t worry. We can take a minute and give you a quick run-down. Essentially, these books included multiple different scenarios, plot lines, and endings. Every so often, you’d find yourself on a page that required you to make a decision before moving forward. It could be something like this.
“You survived the plane wreck. Now, what do you want to do? To activate a flare, turn to page 35. To look through the debris for other survivors, turn to page 47.” So, you make your choice and go to the subsequent page, and voila! Sometimes you make it to the end and emerge a survivor. Other times, you don’t. That’s the fun part– the challenge. Now, Bear Grylls has a challenge for you.
In his latest Netflix release, “Out Cold,” viewers must help Grylls get out of a sticky situation. Much like the previously released interactive “Black Mirror” spin-off “Bandersnatch,” viewers get a say in how things play out with their remote. Grylls explains a little bit of this process in the caption of the Instagram reveal:
“Our interactive movie: Out Cold is now officially live on @netflix . The challenge is yours. Can you help me navigate my way safely out of a plane crash in the mountains? MY life is in YOUR hands. Let me know how you get on. I’m counting on you 🙏💪”
