Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!
So I guess I have to be the fangirl-y one here, drat.
I first saw them in Epic Rap Battles of History: Wright Brothers (Rhett & Link) vs Mario Brothers (NicePeter and EpicLloyd) and I thought 'they're cute'. I clicked onto their channel and realized 'oh they're cute but weird...okay' and clicked away. Yes I know SHAME ON ME. Until about two months ago something possessed me to give them another try and...I really don't know what it is about them, but I just could not get enough....I suspect their boundless humor, subtle charm, dazzling eyes and rugged good looks could have something to do with it. I have watched almost everything of theirs, with the exception of a few GoodMorningChiaLincoln and random oldie bits.
The first video I came across was the christmas sweats video with Hannah and Grace and I had no clue who Rhett and Link were. I thought, man these guys are lucky to be in these girls video ... now I realize that it was their video and that Hannah and Grace were lucky to be in a Rhett and Link video :)
That was the first one but I didn't know it ... which is cool.
This is funny though because the first video I watched after that was the Mythical Show episode with Grace as comment counsellor. I skipped ahead to her part and right after it Link had his hair going up and his Glasses off so I just assumed that that was how he looked all the time :)
I first found Rhett and Link in the Epic Rap Battle of History. I loved the rap battle but it was a while until I came across their videos again. I remember one day watching some of the videos "The Future According to Rhett" - I assumed that this was the sort of thing they did all the time. Eventually the "My Hair Song" popped up on my YouTube homepage and I soon discovered there was much, much more to them!
I love how varied their videos are, how they don't just limit themselves to one genre :-)
My first encounter with Rhett and Link was actually listening to them in the car while my brother played the GMM episode where Rhett and Link do a smell test to find out of they are psychopaths. Upon listening to them I honestly thought they were pretty funny (although I didn't laugh out loud). However I didn't honestly like them enough to want to pursue viewing/listening to more episodes until about a month ago.
OK, well the first video I remember seeing was Perfect Bathroom Trip, and my first thought was, "Did my mom put them up to this?" :p
But in all honesty, I just found them really funny and personable, and nothing against John Green style jump cuts, cause I love his stuff too, but it's kind of nice when things like GMM come around, they allow more conversational stuff.
Oh and I was struck with a growing sense of de ja vu, and I realized later on that a friend had showed me their sham wow commercial song before and I hadn't connected that it was them. :D So TECHNICALLY that was the first video I saw.
