Netflix announced a brand new interactive series recently, and now it has a flashy trailer to go with it. This time, you’ll be able to make decisions for famous survivalist, Bear Grylls, and it certainly sounds like you can kill him.
Like the Black Mirror special, Bandersnatch, this new feature will let you make decisions for Grylls to do in certain situations. Based on the Man Vs. Wild series, this one is aptly titled, You Vs. Wild. Genius.
At one point in the first trailer, Grylls tells the viewer, “you’re in charge here. You’re on this journey with me, and if you don’t make the right choices, it might not end well for me.” In other words, you can choose to put old mate into some dicey situations, which sounds like fun, to me.
Get a load of the trailer for yourself below.
Something about leaving Grylls dangling from a cliff while he yells “you decide!” over and over is extremely entertaining. I also feel like people will be far more likely to throw him into the worser situation just for shits and giggles.
Of course, you won’t actually get to kill Grylls. These choose your own adventure features require each scenario be filmed, so we’re obviously working with hypotheticals rather than the format of Man Vs. Wild, which implies everything he’s doing is legit (it’s not). But maybe you already knew that, I dunno, man.
You Vs. Wild will hit Netflix on the 10th of April.
