Recently, Land Rover announced that survival expert and TV personality Bear Grylls would be their long-term global ambassador. Thanks to Bear’s work on Man vs. Wildand Escape from Hell, Land Rover felt he would be a natural fit for their new “Above and Beyond” slogan.
If you think Bear, whose real name is Edward Michael Grylls, isn’t right for the job, consider this: Grylls, who is a native of the United Kingdom, was a member of the SAS before he had a parachuting accident. Then, after rehabbing his crushed vertebrae, at the age of 23 he climbed to the summit of Mount Everest.
“I’ve used Land Rover vehicles throughout my life, during my military career, on countless expeditions, and then while filming. They always deliver a rugged reliability that you can always count on when the chips are down in hostile environments,” Grylls said about the Land Rover brand.
Along with his role as a brand ambassador, Grylls is also planning to mentor up and coming adventurer 22-year-old Alex Woodford. Woodford recently competed and won the last Discovery Adventure Challenge presented by Land Rover.
Has all this “Bear Grylls talk” got you feeling adventurous?
