Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls

The Bear Grylls meme is an image macro series based on the UK’s star of the reality series “Born Survivor,” shown in the U.S. as  “Man vs. Wild.” The series shows Grylls utilizing his survivor skills in a variety of places and climates.

 

The show is popular despite the fact that discoveries have been made that many of the survival scenarios were substantially less dangerous than depicted.

 

The meme spray up based on an episode showing Grylls in Australia. There in Episode 13, Kimerly Australia, he consumed his own urine, showing viewers how to handle a situation with no water and dehydration danger. The initial meme was captioned in September 2010 as “The sun is going down, better drink my own piss.” This post reached the front page of the /r/pics subreddit.

 

Other captions focused on situations that required more work, or created bigger problems than necessary, such as “Find log cabin. Use as fire wood.” In many captions, the second portion of the original text “better drink my own piss,” remains in place.

 

Image macros posted to the advice animal builder Meme Generator, BuzzFeed, the humor site Barnorama, and Reddit in September 2010. In February of 2011, Quickmeme created a page for this meme; in June, the humor blog Smosh published a collection called the “22 Best Bear Grylls Memes.” In the same month, comedy website College Humor posted a video based on the meme,  “Man Vs. Wild: The RPG,” wherein Grylls drinks a bottle of urine.
