    Matt surviving that polar bear attack is beyond incredible. He is a walking miracle that could live to tell the tale.

    If you got something out of today's episode, and you haven't done this already, the next time the like button wants to go on vacation, send him to the Torngats without a polar bear protection plan.

    Mr Ballen is literally the only creator I actually watch the sponsors for. Gotta love Ol' Lungy

    Odd and frustrating that the experienced campers didn't realize the importance of distance from water, even after the bears themselves warned them.

  • Randi Mitchell

    Matt's a local hero here in Lewiston, Maine. This was just so awesome hearing his story through you! Thank you!

  • Sarah Kensa

    i love when MrBallen tells his stories about sponsors, can barely say the whole thing without laughing, but theyre funny 😅

  • Dennis Wagner

    Wow the irony. I’m literally fishing on a shrimp trawler off of the Torngat mountains and looking at them right in front me. Followed you for a while now and to hear a story of a place that’s literally where I am is mindboggling! From Nova Scotia here!

    Nothing on earth makes me happier than Mr Ballen cracking himself up during an ad read.

    Lungy is my favorite character. Such a talented frog. I'm so glad he's back (and that he survived that explosion). :'D

    I’ve heard him talk about this experience before and it’s horrifying. Even scarier is while they were trying to stabilize him and wait on help, multiple other polar bears were stealing them throughout the night.

  • Edwin Bellis

    That’s a amazing story and good for him for being positive about his natural experience

    I usually skip sponsorship sections of videos but this one was pure gold 😂

  • Kohaku Usagi

    Man, that's crazy and I'm so glad Matt survived and seems to have made a pretty nice recovery. Thank you for telling his story. ❤️

    I was listening to some of his old videos around 9 pm before going to bed, then next thing I know its 3 am and I didnt feel tired at all because of how excited/intrested I was because of his story telling

    You are such a good and consistent story teller and it's very nice! It gives the feeling of sitting around the fire and sharing information with family like cavemen. You were even able to express the fear and quickness of the situation. These things happen so fast while adrenaline slows it down and this is the first time I've ever heard somone explain and pace something so well it comes through. Thank you for this! Super interesting

    Matt came back to the attack site with armed experts was like:

  • Lisa Laursen

    It mentioned that the trip leaders prepared a big feast for the group. In any area where there are bears present it’s not a good idea to cook, eat or store food at your campsite where you sleep. A polar bear has the most powerful sense of smell of all bears and can smell your camp up to 20km away.

    Your adventures with good ol' Lungy always brighten my day

    I imagine the polar bear walking right through the electrical fence, getting shocked before laughing, "Oh, thanks, I had an itch there" 😳 The fact Matt survived a polar bear attack is absolutely insane

    “… went back, but this time he was accompanied by an armed polar bear expert”
