Admittedly, I’m a little bit late to the party that is Good Mythical Morning. Hosts Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal began the show in 2012, which, despite its humble beginnings, now boasts a viewership of some 17 million subscribers worldwide.
You really have to tip your hat to these guys. The production value of this show is abnormally high for a YouTube show, which immediately validates the time you’re about to waste, watching them rate fast food burritos or give each other atomic wedgies. They’re quite obviously great pals, and the show has a really good-natured quality.
They’ve also become favorite guests of The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, where Fallon joined them for culinary experiments entitled, “Will It S’more”,”Will It Hot Dog” and “Will It Hummus.” Silly objectives all, yet more entertaining than you’d think, which is why I watch these guys.
In a world where sometimes it seems negativity and partisanship rule the day, it’s nice to just turn your brain off and watch some fluff. Rhett and Link offer that to their audience in the best possible way.
