Jake Gyllenhaal Almost Dies or Something but Whatever Because This Makes for FANTASTIC Television

Oh, what thrills await those of you who will be watching the season premiere of Man vs. Wild this Friday!  A sample below:




It was with great interest that I read the comments of the last post regarding Brokeback Mountain jokes.  Clearly they have been far more widespread than I realized in reference to Jake's appearance on Man vs. Wild.  Even the Huffington Post, where these clips were snatched from, used Brokeback in the first sentence of their article about this show. 

Why are people still talking about Brokeback Mountain?  Apparently within the grand context of pop culture, it remains the fastest and easiest way to remind everyone who Jake Gyllenhaal is.  He's that guy who was in that movie that caused such a stir that five and a half years later, people still haven't gotten over it...

Thanks to Sam and Vanessa for tipping me off to these clips!!

Very interesting observation, PG!!

Is it just me or does the entire first clip look and sound very homo-erotic!?

PG the 2nd clip has already been removed :-(

Vanessa July 6, 2011 at 6:28 PM  

This is great shit! I can't wait to see the whole episode.

Damn, I bet Jake's insurance co. will be crapping their pants when they see this if they haven't already... >;-P

CC is right, it's gone. Evidently they made that guy remove the video today & Discovery Channel uploaded both of them to their YT channel. PG can replace that video with the "official" one.

The grunting. Unf.

I don't know about homo-erotic, CC, but plain ol' erotic? Most def. ;]

The second video should work now. (Thank you, Vanessa!!)

So I watched the first clip again with homoeroticism on the brain and I laughed through the ENTIRE THING. Dear God. "The actual hole could be a lot bigger!" "The rocks are a welcome sight!" "It's okay! I've got you!" Someone rewrite that segment as a slash story NOW.

Gosh. I was getting the full body creeps just watching that 2nd video. I'm not really afraid of heights, but could really feel the palpable sense of "oh shit" when he reached the middle of that rope-you're already tired, you've now got to pull yourself upwards, and no matter what happens you can't go back. Respect.

On the other hand, after all the ado about the crevasses of doom in the snow, I expected a bit more drama when he did fall than the equivalent of a 6 year old flopping into the snow to make a snow angel.

brilliant - I missed one of the videos ... the homoerotic one as you guys refer to.

The rope one I couldn't see completely coz after few seconds I got "forwarded" to some error-page.

Guess this is not my day... maybe I used all my luck of July 7th last year when I had spine-surgerey O.O"

I'm glad I got to see the 2nd clip. I did like the opening scene where, um "Bear" is looping a rope around, well somewhere around Jake's waist. That's not homo-erotic at all ;-)

But that is some scary shit! I'm not scared of heights at all, but going across a chasm on a skinny little rope is not my idea of a good time!

People Magazine has more. They also win the prize for best Jake-related headline of 2011 so far...

Jake Eats a Worm (no, really)

Vanessa July 8, 2011 at 3:19 PM  

haha, I saw those alerts that said that about him eating a worm, but I didn't pay attention, I thought they were just making fun of him. Dayumm, I know he's a foodie, but this is ridiculous. Still better than drinking his own urine, though. hmmmm...

No one can skim a lamb as flawlessly and sexily as Jake can.

No one.
