Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!
I saw the Chuck Testa commercial in November 2011 on thanksgiving. And I thought it was hilarious! I didn't think much about it, or check out who made it. In March 2012 I was watching my favorite Youtubers (now second favorite) the "Indy Machines" they did five word film titles. They had an annotation to Rhett&Link's five word song titles. I saw "Nilla Wafer Top Hat Time" and was thoroughly disturbed. But I thought it was funny. So I clicked "My Hair Song" loved it. Then watched the behind the scenes episode of GMM.
First Impression of Rhett: A 30 yr old biker who makes a ton of bathroom jokes. (He was wearing a leather jacket and drinking coffee out of a toilet mug).
First Impression of Link: A 30 yr old who says nice things when Rhett says something bad. A safer person.
But I kept on watching and figured out who they really were.
They seem like the friends I grew up with. Funny and witty.
I was drawn to their show by the mystical energy that flows from Rhett's beard. After watching a few of their videos, the gravitational pull from the epicenter of his facial masterpiece caused a massive explosion of testosterone to surge through the pores in my face. Instantaneously, I had sprouted a beard that even Chuck norris would be proud of.
There is indeed something mythical and magical about their show.
Well technically I first saw some of their videos in either 2008 or 2009, and I can't remember what I initially thought (too far back for my memory). I don't even remember which video(s) I saw. Since I learned about the NC duo through a story in my NC college paper, probably my reaction was, "Cool, some Southern guys are making a name for themselves!" It wasn't enough to get me hooked at that time, though.
Perhaps more interesting is my dad's reaction to first seeing them. Last year I showed him "The Hair Song," and at the end of it he said, "Well that was kind of dumb." (He laughed though.) :P
The first time I saw rhett and link was a GMM video my brother was watching. After a while of just watching two guys talking i thought they were pretty boring. First impression not good, but obviously i learned to love them.
My first video was T-shirt wars. I was really impressed and amazed. Soon after I was caught up into their music and was totally hooked!
The first video I saw was Singing "All Night Long" All Night Long, and I wasn't very interested, but I watched the Hair Song. I thought Link was pretty funny, but it seemed like Rhett was just a weirdo. I kept watching more videos though, and now I love them!
The first video I saw was the first episode of the Mythical Show, just around the time it was released. I didn't think they were that great and was a little bit confused at what I'd seen. But out of curiosity I returned several weeks later and watched the next episode. And then the next one... and the next one... I guess I just had to acquire the taste because I watched them just about every day since!
