Recreating Embarrassing School Photos

(poppy electronic music) – Welcome to Let’s Talk About
That, the show about the show. I’m Stevie and this is
a pre-recorded message. This week’s guests will huff
and puff and blow your minds. Please welcome Rhett and Link. (crew applauds) I think it was a tie. Was that a race? I’m awarding pun, points to both of you. – Punts.
– I want a pump. – Please give me a punt. – A pump. – That sounds like a bad thing. I mean depending on what you want from me. – Stevie, it’s–
– Punting is– – A thing is not a thing when you hear it, doesn’t necessarily have to be bad. – Oh no no, in my mind, it’s always bad. – Punting, punting–
– I don’t know. – Is the art of taking
a boat down in a small, shallow pond with a long stick in England. They do it in Oxford. – Okay now you know–
– Oxford! – Everything about England. – (chuckles) Yes I do. – Gentlemen and everyone out there, welcome back back to LTAT. – Yeah, let’s talk about that. – We haven’t been at it. It’s almost like riding a bike but I don’t like riding bikes,
especially in Los Angeles so it’s almost like riding a bike. – You gotta find a path, you gotta find a path along the river. – Oh there is a river path.
– There’s a river path. – There’s an LA River bike path. – Yeah that–
– That is nice, it is very nice what they’ve
done with the LA River. – And you can ride on the
boardwalk and you can start in Santa Monica and go
all the way to Long Beach. I mean there might be a
couple of squirrely spots. – That’s not the LA River. – No no–
– No we switched over to the other path.
– There’s many places to ride bikes in Los Angeles. I’m an advocate of bike riding in LA. – Maybe I’ll try it. Can you believe it has been a year since we first started doing this. – Really?
– Yeah. – It seems so much longer.
– It’s just flown by. It’s flown by. Thank you and what better way to celebrate than by thanking our sponsor Audible. If you aren’t already an Audible member, what are you doing? Listening makes us smarter,
more connected people and makes us better
partners, parents and leaders and there’s no better place to
start listening than Audible. With Audible, you get access
to an unbeatable selection of audiobooks including
best-sellers, mysteries, thrillers, memoirs and more. Members also have unlimited access to more than 100 audio-guided fitness
and meditation programs. That’s a lot of listening. – I’ve been listening to you. You really know a lot about Audible. – Oh my gosh, thank
you so much. (chuckles) No, I had an eight hour
flight to tackle this summer and so I downloaded Parker Posey’s memoir which is called “You’re on an Airplane”. – Whoa.
– ‘Cause I was like, you know, I mean if that’s
not messaging for me to download and listen,
I don’t know what is. And let me tell you, it was so enjoyable. It’s produced so it
seems like you’re sitting next to Parker Posey on an airplane. – Oh really?
– That’s nice. – So it’s only in one ear?
– Which is kinda trippy. (Stevie chuckles) – No it’s mostly in one ear. Not only just mostly.
– Okay. – And I will say I did say the
flight was eight hours long and the book’s only seven
hours and 53 minutes so I did have seven minutes.
– What’d you do with that seven minutes? – I just looked at the beautiful
artwork that Audible has for (chuckles) her memoir. – Right. – Yeah I’ve got you, Audible. (Rhett laughs) But you can download it
and you can become friends with Parker Posey too, I encourage it. So join Audible and start listening today with a 30 day trial and
your first audiobook plus two Audible originals for free. Visit
or text LTAT to 500-500. That’s LTAT to 500-500
or – You really know a lot about Audible. – I mean that’s the other
thing with the seven minutes that I had while I was
looking at the artwork of Parker Posey’s Audible, I also memorized everything about Audible. – Yeah, right. – And memorized it.
– It’s important. – It’s fine.
– That’s how we roll here on Le-tat. – Le-tat.
– Le-tat. What I’m gonna be callin’ it. – I had to fit–
– I like that. Is there an apostrophe?
– A lot– – No. – Into this episode because
it was the first episode back, we had the whole summer of no– – Go big or go hard.
– No Le-tat. – That’s what I always say. – There’s an apostrophe in let’s. – Go hard.
– I say go big and go hard. – Okay.
– Go big or go home actually is what it is. – So (laughs), we have– – Just go home, man.
– A Shando Mini Mythical Morning. And this one’s like–
– Really? – I would say, I’m gonna
give it 10 out of 10. – [Rhett] Okay. – Stars, I don’t know, I
don’t know what I’m giving it, but stars is what we’re– – Gay, stars. – Mainly because Link exits
a lot sooner than before and I just feel like they
shine when you’re not there. – Yeah I agree.
– Agreed. – Also to add to the cuteness
and because it’s that time of year, I thought we’d review
some of our school photos so I have some of your school photos and some of mine and you
guys actually recreated a couple of yours so we have that. – Yeah.
– Yeah, yeah. – And then finally we have a
while the cameras were rolling clip from the ear cleaning
episode because we had the– – Oh gosh.
– Ear wax candle that we had to clock wipe in the episode but stuff went down
during that time period so I do have that clip.
– Okay. – And just to tip the scales a little bit because the ear wax stuff isn’t that cute, I have another cute thing
to just kick off today with and that’s Mythical Chef Josh who has our rejected snack this week. – Wow okay.
– So you’re calling Josh cute or what he made cute? – You know, I didn’t think
about the implications of me saying that and if
I’ve made you uncomfortable. – Do I talk to my direct supervisor or will a third party rep be
made available to me ’cause I– – Let’s just move on.
– All right. – So what you go here?
– You got a paper towel cloche here.
– We have a paper towel cloche here because this is a very secret item, it’s very special to me. Are you guys ready to see it? – Yes.
– Well what is it first? – Okay so–
– Build it up a little bit.
– We did Will It Mac and Cheese,
right, we do a rejected snack so this is a rejected
idea, it is based on one of your old videos I watched years ago and I watched you guys
do it and I was like man, that’s cool, I could do it so much better. And now I’m here and I
did it so much better. – That’s why we hired you.
– So I’m excited for that. Yeah.
– All right. – All right so this is the
Big Mac and Cheese 2.0. – Good–
– Revitalized. – You mean you think that’s
better than just the Big Mac with mac and cheese in it? – I love your simplicity, I
love it ’cause it’s minimalist. – Can I also say it
wasn’t just like mac and, it wasn’t even that
simple, it was Easy Mac. – Yeah.
– It was easy. It was a great idea.
– You know what, it was good!
– A container of Easy Mac. – You got something very big here. – So I have taken mac
and cheese and I froze it into discs and then I deep-fried
it and then I turned that into the buns of a Big Mac and
then that’s what’s happening and it is a very unwieldy burger. I knew it was gonna be
silly, very difficult to eat but iw anted to do it anyways
so this was our rejected… – [Link] It’s the size of a human head. – [Josh] It’s got so much heft. – That’s fine, we didn’t need that. – Everybody gets their own quarter. – Which is still–
– Hope you’re hungry! – [Josh] Way too much to eat. You have to eat it like a layer cake. You know? – Wow.
– Wow. – Ooh that’s very nice. – It does look like a cake.
– Very nice. Very, very, very, oh.
– Here we’re just gonna have to–
– Oh my goodness. – Stick it like that.
– Here you go, Stevie. – Oh thank you so much. – I gave you the biggest piece. – Uh-oh, uh-oh we’re getting some fallage. – This is beautiful.
– You almost just gotta ball it up in your hands.
– Do we have any– – Don’t ask for silverware. – I was asking for a close-up shot. (all laughing) Okay we have it, okay. – What are you smelling for? – It smells like McDonald’s.
– It does, right? – I got the most compromised one. – Yeah, you may just have to squeeze that through your fists to kind
of (slurps) suck it out. – Just gonna try.
– How– – I’m going.
– Oh no, the feel. The finger feel. (chuckles) – Mm. – Can we get some silverware? (laughs) – No, no you may not. – Gonna go in. We should have hired you a long time ago. – (laughs) Right?
– Mm. – Oh my God, this is so good.
– Yeah this works. – If I was not in front
of a camera right now, you better believe that I
would not ask for silverware and go for it.
– I’m just going. – Hold on we’re in front
of a camera right now? (Rhett gasps) – That is raunchy, man. – That is raunchy.
– It is raunchy. – It is just wet–
– I don’t know how that word came up but it was like what’s
the perfect word for this? It’s like raunchy.
– Yeah. – That is a raunchy burger.
– I like that. I like where this segment’s going. – Yeah man.
– This might be one of the first things that we’ve
had that I wanna really save for after we–
– How ’bout we just cut the cameras off and finish it. – Okay. Well I see that some of us
did a better job (chuckles) than others of us– – Why you in a food coma? You didn’t even eat half of it. That’s eaten–
– I mean– – What happened to you? You stopped short too.
– It got messy and I didn’t have the confidence I needed in order to just get it
all in there, you know. – (chuckles) Yeah, it’s
all about confidence. That’s why I’m such a good eater. – That was fabulous. You know what Josh, you
should have your own videos on Sunday–
– Oh my God. – On our channel.
– What a crazy convenient segue because–
– That was so good! – That was really good.
– I’m so proud of that segue. Am I messing it up by
calling it out a lot? – Yeah a little bit.
– I don’t think so. – It’s cool, it’s cool.
– I’m proud of you, Link. That’s so nice. – Fine.
– Yeah so– – Let’s not give him–
– Who do I look at? Am I looking at Ben, I
look at Casey, hi Casey. So yeah tomorrow we have
the return of Food Fears with a new guest and then we are also– – Food what?
– Food Fears! Whoa sorry, Food Fears,
it’s a show that we, you ate a penis. Anyways so we’re bringing
back Food Fears– – That’s the logline. – Yeah, and then we are also
bringing back Fancy Fast Food, one of my favorite things in the world, and then a couple more ideas
that are yet to be rele-vealed. – Yeah they’re gonna be great. – They’re gonna be the best.
– And you’re gonna find out about ’em soon.
– Even better than the best things ever. So yeah, please watch tomorrow. I’m very, very excited
about it, Food Fears! – Woo!
– Calm down. – Thank you Josh.
– I can’t, I’m just jacked up on sodium right now. – Very excited, thank you.
– Thank you for this delicious meal and I’m sure everyone
will tune in tomorrow. To watch Food Fears. – See you guys.
– Yeah it’s all good. – [Josh] I’ll see ya. – I also wanted to talk about another show that we have that if you haven’t listened and you can’t watch yet
because it doesn’t come out until tomorrow but Ear Biscuits, this– – What’s that?
– Week. Turns out it’s a podcast
that you guys have but I wanted to mention it
because we’re not talking about our vacations, you’re
not talking about your vacation on this episode of LTAT because you did so in Ear Biscuits so there are some reveals that you guys drop,
there’s some jaws that drop in Ear Biscuits so if you
haven’t already listened to this week’s episode, go do that. And then the video comes out tomorrow so make sure to check that
out and put it on your list. Here’s something you can
check out now though. Shando is, was here
and is here now for you and they had a little
cooking challenge that they, I think did a really great job tackling. Watch for yourself and let
us know what you think. – [Both] Can we make
an omelet without help? – Let’s kid about that. (groovy electronic music) – Good Mini Mythical Morning. – I don’t cook because
my mom does it for me because I’m a kid. – That’s also why I don’t cook. – But today we’re gonna
make a Denver omelet. Like yeah, I have no idea what that is. It’s time for– – [Shepherd And Lando]
Will We Make the Right Cooking Decision Without
Adult Supervision? – All right guys so your task
is to make a Denver omelet. I’m here to offer all
of my cooking expertise to help you in any way I can. – Like you have any. (crew laughs) – Okay, I’m basically moral
support so you guys go for it. Make a Denver omelet. Mythical Chef Josh is going to taste it and critique it at the end. So you’re not making this for me, you’re making this for him. Say hello to Mythical Chef Josh. – Oh.
– Hey Josh. – [Josh] I will be
merciless in my critiques. – Thank you. (crew laughs) – You said thank you? Okay, you wanna be judged harshly. – Yeah.
– All right what do you know about Denver omelets, guys? – I know you’re supposed
to put like for most stuff you put butter at the beginning. – Okay go for it. – [Shepherd] The butter completely melted. – You can touch it. Ew.
– Good. – Have you washed your hands? – No.
– I don’t think Josh does either, don’t worry about it. – [Shepherd] All right I
think we can move it around. – All right Lando what
are you gonna do to prep some ingredients while
he’s moving that around? – [Shepherd] (chuckles) It’s gone. (objects thumping) That just happen? (crew laughs) – What am I supposed to do? – Don’t we need an egg? Who wants to grab the egg?
– Me. – Wait.
– This? – No right here. I think I need two eggs, yeah. – I thought you were supposed to help us. – Wait I don’t–
– I’m doing all I can, buddy. – Okay no yeah, put it and crack it. – Be aware. (metal clangs) – [Both] Ow. (Lando yelps) (Shepherd chuckles) – [Shepherd] That was fun. – It’s good.
– Oops. – So there’s one.
– Sorry. Sorry Josh. – Break. (whacks egg) – (grunts) That’s good. That is okay. Where do we, I’ll just
put that right here. – Hey I’m so good at this right? – I call that one.
– Oh there’s egg, there’s shell.
– No no no no no. Don’t touch it, use this
thing, that’s what my mom does. It looks cool. Don’t touch it.
– I’m breaking the yolk. Ooh that feels good. – I wanna touch, ew! That does not feel good.
– Yeah it does. – My turn. – [Shepherd] Can we put more cheese in it? – Off to a good start. (egg cracks)
(Lando yelps) – [Shepherd] Awesome, ooh, that felt good. (crew laughs) – What do you, Shepherd!
– I’m whisking it. I’m whisking it. – That’s what this is
for and I get to do that because you get that stuff. (egg cracks)
(Lando yelps) (Shepherd giggles) – [Link] Shepherd, your pan is smoking. – (laughs) It squirted out. – Okay now I should whisk it I guess. – Ooh, oh no let me break this. – I call whisker.
– Oh my gosh I’m gonna break it.
– Shepherd, stop. – Ooh (laughs).
– I’ll whisk it in your hand. – That’s disgusting.
– Shepherd, move. – It feels– – Who cares if it feels good. – [Shepherd] I do! – I have to make–
– Can we put some butter in? – No, that’s. – And then some salt.
– I’m sorry. – I’m not!
– Lando, thank you. – [Shepherd] And some cheese. – Mm, this is gonna be so good. We need some more–
– Wait we should put a lot of pepper.
– Mm yes it’ll be spicy. Let’s actually try.
– And too much salt. – Maybe some crunch–
(crew gasps) (Shepherd chuckles) – [Josh] Hey Shep, that was a lot of salt. – Ooh! Are we ready to pour it on there? – I’ll turn this back on for you guys. – Look at my fingers. – Wait it wasn’t on the whole time? – Well it started smoking so–
– That’s good. – Yeah we want that to
happen so it it can cook. – [Shepherd] Okay now
I’m gonna pour it on. – Pour it, yay (gags). – That’s cool. – [Josh] You guys are doing so great. – Are we supposed to make a scramble because that’s easier. – I have an idea.
– (gasps) It’s, ah, it’s working! I wish you guys could see this. It’s so beautiful. It’s like my best work of
art that I’ve ever done. Shepherd, what are you doing? – [Josh] That’s the least bad thing you’ve done to that omelet. (crew chuckling) – Oh my goodness Shepherd. Oh flip it (gasps). – (gasps) Awesome! – Whoa! Wait what am I–
– Let me flip it, let me flip it–
– Wait I’m confused. It looks so beautiful. Oh my gosh, Shepherd. Shepherd, Shepherd, my
turn, my turn, my turn. – It’s so cool.
– Ooh it’s still liquidy. You gotta burn up. This is too much omelet. You have to eat this whole
thing to make me happy, okay Josh? – You know, I have an idea.
– Ooh this feel, ooh, is this what I feel like
when my mom makes something that I don’t really like
but I don’t wanna say that? (crew laughs) Okay we’re ready!
– Okay. – Put the plate right here under– – Where’s the big spoon? – We’re gonna just do this. I’m sorry.
– You get what you get. – Here we go.
– It’s definitely– – I only see one thing of mushrooms so. – [Josh] All right here’s your big spoon. – Oh thank you. – [Link] Josh you just sit on the stool and they’ll serve it to you.
– Whoa, whoa! That’s my stool.
– The stool is soaked in raw egg.
– I’m gonna do the rest. I’m gonna do the rest.
– Okay you do the rest. – Get all the green stuff.
– You guys have been slipping and there’s so much egg on
the ground, what happened? – It’s all my fault, I’m sorry. – [Shepherd] Are you
actually gonna eat this? – You guys need pointers
from me professionally so you can grow in your cooking. – Wait wait wait, we have to
have this sticking out of it. – He’s putting his hands on it. You have raw eggs on your hands, Shepherd. – I don’t care, he did it. – All right someone–
– Present it to him. – [Lando] Wait, put it on the plate– – Now I have to present it. – [Lando] Yes. – We’re very nice.
– Okay, this dish is presented with by me and Shepherd. It probably smells a little
bad but you have a little bit of mushrooms, all the
salt, all the pepper. If you like, I’ll pour all this on there. – And, and–
– If you want to. – Oh a single ham cube. Beautiful garnish, beautiful presentation. – Now two single ham cubes. – I will start with the positives. I love the attention to detail, placing a single onion there. That was a really good move. I love the teamwork. I thought you guys worked
together beautifully. Despite watching all of it, I still believe the
children are our future. (crew laughs) If we can move onto the– – [Lando] Just be honest,
it was disgusting. – If we can move onto the negatives. Shep was slapping it a lot
more than you normally would with a dish that you’re finished with. So there was that. It was meant to be an
omelet but this is kind of just a wet mound.
(Shepherd chuckling) That’s it, I mean, it’s all
about how the food tastes– – It’s all yours.
– So let’s go ahead and try it. I will say it smells a lot
better than I thought it would. – I know.
– It’s free food though– – After watching that,
it kinda smells nice. – The best part–
– It smells like an omelet. – Ew, oh. – [Shepherd] It’s probably not that bad. – First thing you notice,
overwhelming amount of salt. That said–
– That’s on his part. – I love that you took a risk. I would rather this than
under seasoned, bland food. The second thing you get
is the pepper hitting you in the back of the throat. Again a risk, you’re just a
visionary and I appreciate that. And I like that you tempered his ambition and you guys are a great one-two combo and I can feel my heart
speeding up from all the salt so it’s kind of like a little pick-me-up. I think you guys gotta try this. – Yeah I will.
– Jump in. I’m slipping on raw egg. Lando, grab a fork.
(Lando whimpers) You don’t have to. Is this what you intended it to look like? – Yes.
– Was this your initial vision? – No. I thought it was gonna look pretty. I love salt but I don’t
think I would like that. – No, you gotta fight it. – Tastes good.
– This is your creation. – [Shepherd] Actually it
doesn’t taste that bad. If there wasn’t too much
salt, it might be good. – It’s not bad. It’s a great first effort. I’m excited to try your second effort, hopefully not anytime soon
but eventually, right? I’m proud you guys are at this. You guys don’t have to call
Uncle Josh if you don’t want to. That’s raw egg again, dang it. I gotta go wash myself. – Thanks for liking,
commenting and subscribing. – You know what time it is. (Rhett sputters)
(Link laughs) – Aw. – They did great.
– They’re so cute! Have they tried any cooking
at home since we taped that? – Not since then, no. – Okay it’s for the best–
– Lando is obsessed with Great British Bake-Off. He watches it constantly.
– Oh yeah. – But he loves it for the
artistry so what he’ll do is, he’ll take Play-Doh and Model Magic. – Mm-hmm.
– And then he’ll make cakes just so he can do the decoration stuff. – Huh.
– So he’s really into that. – But then he doesn’t eat it.
– No. – Then Shepherd eats it. – Well no we just got
Shepherd a salt lick. (Stevie laughs) – Like a deer.
– It’s in his room. It’s in his room and I find him– – Like his gerbil–
– On all fours just licking it, I’m like, you’re going places, boy. – You say that as a joke but I think he would really love it. (laughs) – Is that a salt lick, Dad? (all chuckling) – Okay so I mean I highly
doubt that any of us were as cute as they are at
this age but we have– – Yeah definitely.
– Some photo evidence just to see where the cuteness
falls and I’ve grouped them into different–
– Oh gosh. – Childhood points that we can visit and some of these were in the
Book of Mythicality I believe. You guys, what I noticed
is you have so many photos and you have kept all of your photos– – Yeah good record keeping.
– And your parents did that for you, mine not so much so you’ll see that some of mine fit in
and some of mine don’t but I thought that we’d start
with the cutest possible time which is the pre-school,
Kindergarten school photo time. So the first photo we have is
Rhett in pre-school I bereave. – [Link] Propped up on a chair. – [Rhett] It was as if
my hair maybe was parted when I left home.
– Hmm. – And the only thing
that remained by the time I got to the picture
was that little crease. – [Stevie] It almost looks red, your hair. – [Rhett] That’s just the light– – The whole reflecting–
– Bouncing off of the IZOD. – Okay and then the next photo we have is Link in Kindergarten. (Rhett chuckles) – [Link] Oh yeah, lots of
gaps in between those teeth. It’s like they could go
anywhere from that point. – That’s such a genuine smile though. That’s good. – Is that stain on the
shirt or on the photo? (all chuckling) – That is a blood stain probably. I put my classmate in a head lock and– – Very formal as well. – Oh yeah I gotta wear the Sears sucker. – Business man, business man. – Business man.
– Business man is the boy. – And here’s my Kindergarten
photo I believe. (Rhett and Link exclaim) – Who’s–
– Not havin’ it. – Happy to be there.
– Ha! – It’s like a side smirk
action that’s going on– – Wow.
– Like I know something you don’t.
– I’ve never seen you at this age.
– Yeah. (chuckles) – Yeah we met much later. I’ve never seen–
– You already seem cynical. – I know, and also the
turtleneck does not do anything for my neck–
– It’s pretty wide. – [Stevie] It just doesn’t exist. But yeah I’m already too
cool to smile in this photo. – Right I see that.
– I’m giving you like, I’m trying to go for the
smize, I didn’t quite make it. – Over it! – I just feel like cuteness points, it’s a hard award to… – I’ll take it. – Okay well Link will take that one. – Okay.
– Okay so the next category is grade school. I don’t even have something written down for what we’re gonna award
this one but let’s see Rhett in fourth grade. Still rocking the same background to all these photos of course. – [Rhett] It looks like
a badge of some sort on that shirt like it’s a fake– – That’s a Bugle Boy shirt, it’s gotta be. – What’s that mean?
– It’s a brand that he’s wearing.
– Bugle Boy, yeah. – Bugle Boy. – That’s what they called me. (Stevie chuckles) – Now am I seeing your top
teeth or your bottom teeth? I can’t tell. – [Rhett] I can’t tell either. Probably my top teeth.
– It was crazy how much you look like Shepherd. – That was back when my top
teeth were still visible. When I still had ’em.
– We could put you in a chef’s hat and stick
you in the last segment and I feel like you look so much like Shepherd in that photo.
– It’s true. I don’t immediately see it ’cause it’s one of those things that–
– Yeah. – You can’t see it when it’s yourself but now that you say that, I’m like yeah. – Then we have me in what
I believe is third grade. – [Link] Okay, you got your
pajama pants at school. – No this is a very
cool Limited Too outfit. I don’t know if you guys
remember Limited Too but it was like all the rage
and you had to have things that said Limited Too on them.
– That was a whole store. The Limited.
– Yes. – And then there was The Limited Too. – Limited Too.
– Yes, yes, yes. My mom–
– Yes the kid version. – It was pajamas basically. – No I know, I mean, yes, yes. – [Link] So you had glasses
at that young of an age. – Yeah I think I had glasses in maybe just after
Kindergarten or in Kindergarten, after, like pretty soon. – Were you cool with that or– – I don’t recall being cool with it but look at how cool I was. – You seem unusually cool
for someone of that age, like just the face that you’re making which is this kinda like
oh you’re taking a picture. – Oh of me? I’m just casually drawing my dog. – (chuckles) Right. – Does it say Shania,
what is your dog’s name? – [Stevie] Shana. Shania would have been cooler though. – [Rhett] You had a dog named Shana? – Shana, yeah. That was the year that I
transferred from public school to a super small private
school so it was like, you know, I had to be cool, I
had to bring the public school into this dog drawing situation. – [Link] Had to corrupt everybody. – Doesn’t look like there’s
anyone sitting around me. So that’s fun.
– No friends. – Nobody’s, yeah.
– Not yet. And then we have Link in fourth grade. (Rhett laughs) – How did this happen first of all? I’ve seen this photo many
times because we show it at the–
(Stevie laughs) We showed it as part of
the Tour of Mythicality but that’s not, I mean,
that’s not any school picture I ever took. – My aunt Teesie took it
upon herself to take me to a professional portrait
studio and get pictures taken. – It is very professional,
I was gonna say that. – And–
(Stevie laughs) On the way there we bought a complete Coca-Cola branded outfit
and they didn’t have stools or chairs so just made me get
on my knees for the photo. It’s like what kind of portrait studio sends you to your knees? – [Rhett] But you don’t seem like you have a problem with it. – I love it and Aunt
Teesie would part my hair but I did not wear my hair like that at any other point except–
– Only in photos. – Only in the photos. – That was photo hair. – But the Coca-Cola stuff,
that was a big deal. – Oh man I missed that era.
– Way back in the day, man. – Hmm, you’re such a good sport. You were into this.
– I just wanted everybody to be happy. I mean inside I was in turmoil. – Falling apart. – Do you remember this day? – I remember having my
hair parted and I was like, whatever it takes. – Wow, how big of you. – You want me on my
knees, whatever it takes. – You want me to smile
like I’m dying inside? – (chuckles) Stop saying that. – No the smile seems authentic though. That was a good job of acting. – Yeah, this is great. So I don’t know what category
that was but Link won. – (chuckles) Clearly. – So now we’re going to the awkward, decidedly awkward category
which is freshman year. – Had a pretty–
– Now you better not hold back on us.
– Oh buddy, you wait. So this is Rhett in ninth grade. – [Rhett] Yeah. – Yeah this is another
photo that at every stop of the Tour of Mythicality and
in the Book of Mythicality, you just made fun of yourself
hard so just go for it again. – Yeah well the main observation
that I’ve made about this and especially if you see
it in a sequence of photos of me growing up you’ll
see that my neck continued to grow but my face stopped
growing at some point. (Stevie chuckles) And I honestly don’t
know, the ratio of my neck to my face is so different
than what I think it is now that I feel like I would remember this, like you would feel it. Like I was so well supported.
(Link chuckles) Like if you tried to decapitate this man with a guillotine, you
would need three or four, three or four gos at it.
– Right. Crank it back up, give it another go. It’s gonna take at least two more, boys! He’s still talking to us! – It’s not a very thick neck though. I mean a guillotine–
– You think it’s just a small face.
– Your head is just so small. Your neck’s normal. – [Stevie] Well also to be
fair, the polo does look like there’s a little bit of room for not, it just needed to come in. – It looks like it’s a little off-center but the thing you don’t understand is that I was actually doing
this during the photo. I was hitting both sides of the collar and they just caught me at a weird time. – He’s bouncing back and forth. – Okay so here’s–
– I know what you’re gonna show of me. – Do we have something,
Link in ninth grade. I mean both of yours are not that bad. – My right eyebrow looks like
it’s trying to exit my face. It’s just trying to go away completely. Now this is when I
first tried to take care of my unibrow and I shaved it– (Stevie laughs)
The width of a Gillette razor. – I mean look at that.
– And then when I would raise my eyebrow, it would
go further off my head. – The funny thing is is your eyebrow is lined up with almost your
pupil of your right eye. – Well whenever I would smile, it would go further out I think. – No but look at me
now, your eyebrow now– – Look at me now.
– Your eyebrow now starts before your eye begins
but you let your eye begin and then your eyebrow was
like an echo of your eye. (chuckles) I’m surprised it grew back.
– Once you stroke the razor, it’s a done deal. – I also like, you guys are dressing like you’re getting ready for your jobs as engineers in ninth grade. Both of your outfit choices are, but maybe that was of the time. – That was an American Eagle shirt. – You had to wear a collared shirt. – I remember buying that shirt. That was my favorite shirt.
– Really? – American Eagle. – That’s why you wore it on picture day. – That’s an American Eagle shirt? – [Link] Yeah, first
generation American Eagle. – [Rhett] What are those symbols? – [Link] Of course it
might be a Structure shirt. – As in like Express?
– Yeah, Structure was its own shop, it was called Structure. – You remember Structure? – I do but I just wasn’t picturing
this as a Structure shirt or an American Eagle shirt.
– It’s one of those two, definitely.
– It’s definitely a Microsoft. – I’m smiling like my
character in Rabbit Lightning. You know like–
(Rhett chuckles) – It’s not bad though. It’s not bad at all.
– That’s not a bad photo. – It’s, guys–
– I hope your is awkward. – Just reveal my ninth grade photo. (Rhett laughs)
(Link yells) – [Rhett] Wow. Wow.
– You guys were lookin’ good for ninth graders. – Stevie, what… Things were going so well
in the previous two pictures I was like, surely by the
time we get to this stage, you’ve figured everything out. – This only got worse throughout
high school I’m gonna say. – The thing you had the most
control over was your hair. – I sported this half back look situation. – [Link] So you got bangs
on the sides of your head. – [Stevie] I had braces. – [Link] Am I seeing this right? – [Stevie] I think those are
just like flyaway whispies. It wasn’t a decided bangs situation. – It looks like a haircut
that someone would adopt for religious purposes. (all laughing) It looks like a hair cut
that someone would wear because they have to. – For a higher calling.
– Oh my God. – Obviously it’s not–
– No we all wear our hair like this, it’s not that weird. – But I will say that the,
I’m wearing a Hollister shirt which at the time–
– That was cool. – Was like a cool thing to do. – I think that part’s cool.
– You weren’t questioning that part but guys– – And I’m not gonna pick on the braces. – And braces–
– You gotta do what you gotta do.
– You gotta get braces. – I had braces for two years
in high school I believe and most kids were doing that
early middle school thing and I didn’t get to rock
that so I win this category. I knew I was gonna win it. And finally I mentioned that
you guys recreated some of, a couple of your old
photos so here is Link in third grade. (Rhett and Stevie laugh) – [Link] I think that’s a Bugle Boy shirt. – Wow.
– I feel like you have that, you have a similar version
of this shirt now but, and I don’t think it’s the one
you wore for the recreation. And here’s the recreation of the photo. (all laughing) – [Rhett] Whoa! That’s really good.
– That’s so weird. – That’s really good.
– I look so weird. Like 40 year old virgin. – [Rhett] Yeah yeah, it definitely has a Steve Carell thing happening. – And then here is Rhett in Kindergarten. – Now the main struggle here was trying to recreate the haircut
which as you’ll see was not easy to do when
your hair is longer than it used to be, we had
a little trouble with that. – Okay so here’s the recreation. (Rhett and Link laughing) (Link sighs happily) – [Stevie] That’s pretty good. – Yeah.
– That’s pretty dang good. – I almost cut my hair right on the middle of my forehead just for the
sacrifice of this photo but– – I feel like–
– Look at the size of the Lacoste alligator. – [Link] That could be a father son in like a K-Mart duo photo. – You know those K-Mart duo photos. – [Link] That would happen. – Okay and so–
– Wow. – I didn’t get a chance
to recreate a photo so I decided I’m just
gonna do it right now so– – Uh-oh.
– Here’s one of my favorite photos that we found
from me in second grade. – [Link] Is that a crimp? – That’s a crimp.
– Crimpin’ ain’t easy. – It’s a crimp, a bang, a head band, glasses. The posture which I kept. – (chuckles) I kept that part. – So I mean it should be–
– You have a striped shirt? – Fairly simple, I mean
these glasses are glasses that I actually wear in
real life as is the shirt. I mean the shirt I
couldn’t find an exact– – Bring in the crimper. – Yeah, yeah, can you
find a crimper nowadays? – I’m sure you can.
– Okay perfect. I really nailed that. – You can’t get the shirt over your head? – No I can, it’s just
gonna take off my makeup. Mm-kay, and might mess with my mic. Chris, is my mic okay? – She just wearing lipstick. – No I’m saying my makeup right now. – Well you’re matching her. – But that is her. – Okay these head bands, I
don’t know if you knew any girls in elementary school or if you guys, I don’t know if this was of the time, a bunch of girls always wore
plain head bands like this and I don’t quite
understand the logic to it but I have not worn a head band like this since that time. – You need to do fake bangs somehow. – I cannot do fake bangs. – Just pull that down a
little bit in the front. No, pull the hair down
as if it were bangs. – Just loosen it a little bit. Oh yeah, oh yeah.
– Yeah, yeah. – [Rhett] (laughs) Oh yeah. That is really good.
– Put the glasses back on. Then put your, clasp your hands and put ’em next to your knees. Kinda– – You seem, that’s a sad smile. – Look into your camera over
here for the split screen. – [Rhett] It’s a sad smile. Sad eyes. That’s pretty good. – Here we go, a live recreation. – Wow, that’s good, you should do that. – You should do that. Just like this is my normal–
– You should do that. There are definitely people in this town, in the cooler parts of this
town who are walking around looking exactly like this.
– You think? – Oh yeah.
– Okay. – They’re knocking on
doors sellin’ magazines but they’re here.
– Interesting. – Okay, okay. Okay so I mentioned at
the top we have a clip of you were getting the
ear candle done to yourself and it took like not 10 minutes
but somewhere around there. We just couldn’t keep it in the episode. And I know that you guys
out there were wondering what happened during
that, is it distracting that I look like this? – No.
– No, it’s great. – What was happening while
that candle was in Rhett’s ear. Well wonder no more because
we have the footage. – Well, I’m relaxed. I’m not really enjoying myself yet. – Well that’s halfway there. Do you want me to calm you,
I could pet your head or– – I’m okay. – I would like to. – Could you play some Jessica Simpson? – I don’t really know her music. – My ear’s getting hot. – Yeah that’s part of it. It’s ’cause of the fire. But don’t worry, you’re safe. – At what point should you
just put your whole mouth over that and suck?
– That’s at the end. At the end we do the suction. – Okay. – So there’s a whole market for this. – I mean, there’s a section
in the market that sells it. If that’s what you mean. – I meant like a fiscal
market, not an actual– – Oh sure.
– Physical market. – Yeah no, people, everyone’s doing this. Now the scientific community
is kind of in agreement that this does nothing
and doesn’t work at all. But advocates of it say that
science is fake news so– – Right, yeah.
– Yeah yeah yeah. (accordion music) – Are you guys hearing the accordion? – No that’s the crackle of the candle. – Must be part of the process. All right we’re a little over halfway. On this torture. – So I just let this burn
all the way into my ear? – It burns ’til about right there. – He can’t see what you’re pointing at. – Oh right, you’re doing good. You sure you don’t want
like a massage or something? – Mm, no. I’ll handle that myself. (Rhett laughs) – Wow. Can you guys believe there was
a clip that was less exciting than that that I cut from the show? (all laughing) – I still can’t, having seen that, I still can’t tell you what was happening. Well I can see what had happened but I can’t tell you why it was happening. – Mm-hmm.
– I’m just gonna say that. – You didn’t seem to enjoy
it in the moment either. – Well I couldn’t see it. – We weren’t really paying attention. I didn’t know it was happening at all. – But then two-headed David though. – That’s good.
– We’re onto something with that.
– We could do something with that. – That was the thing,
David, so, keep that hoodie. – Yeah be prepared for that–
– On your second face, keep that. – Okay. – Just look for another
opportunity to do that. – All right guys, well that
is all I have on LTAT 38 and so we’ve come to our final line. – Le-tat. – Are you ready?
– Yeah. – Three, two– – Un–
– Until next– – LTAT–
– Le-tat. – Keep on BYMB.
– Keep on BYMB. – BYMB.
– F-O S-H-O. (poppy electronic music)
