as a Kyle I'd like Cut and Style Kyle to stay....mostly because my brother is a Brian (though spelled Bryan)

I have been watching GMM for many years and I always wondered, did I miss the first Brian somewhere and this ongoing joke was just made that first time and I am just out of the loop? I have even tried to find it. I have even seen the diet episode and I didn’t know that it was the first usage of the reward. I didn’t even believe that the reasoning for using Brian was that it was a near rhythm. Hahaha! Even feeling like I was a few notches below the hardcore beasts I just went with it and loved it none the less. Ahhhh, answers.

As someone named Brian, I get excited every time they use my name as a victory title :) Also, I appreciate that they spell it correctly.

Kyle Van Den Bossche on October 2, 2022 at 4:07 am

As someone named Kyle, I was super excited when I saw the "Cut 'n Style Kyle" award lol

Shari Lipman on September 28, 2022 at 1:54 pm

I always thought part of the joke was that people often misspell Brian as Brain, and they were doing the opposite.

i absolutely adore this series!!

So I was actually just watching a behind the mythicality from quarantine and Link placed "Condiment Brian" inside his dining room cabinet. Wonder if it's still there...

I was SO excited to hear that more Good Mythical Origins came out! I promised my husband I'd save them...but I have to watch one now...for my sanity lol

Kasia Niewinski on September 16, 2022 at 10:22 pm

I love how annoyed Link seemed when Rhett was explaining rhyming, prime best friend stuff right there 😂

Bryan Eberhardt on September 16, 2022 at 4:33 pm

You spelled it wrong. 🤔

Anne R Basile on September 16, 2022 at 10:21 am

I would love a Queen Sweep episode

Miranda Pemberton on September 15, 2022 at 9:34 am

Origins was the reason I became a society member. So excited to see more of them!

I love this series, thank you for making more of them!

When they announced Cut & Style Kyle, I thought it was a missed opportunity to be Barber Brian.
Nice to see it was pointed out to have been an intentional attempt to be something else. - here for the Brians.

Chloe Sims on September 14, 2022 at 6:39 pm

I for sure always though you guys were referencing herobrian or whatever his name is from Minecraft lol. Although at that time I was watching a lot of Minecraft videos 😂

Leena Pentti on September 14, 2022 at 2:31 pm

I always thought Brian was Brian intentionally because it made absolutely no sense. Turns out I wasn't entirely wrong. 😄

Ev Fields (They/He) on September 14, 2022 at 1:54 pm

The fact that I never really understood the Brian joke is why I loved it. I love it even more now, knowing its origins are so simple and amusing.

Matthew Kidroske on September 14, 2022 at 1:08 pm

This is probably my favorite inside joke from GMM. When I watch with other people it usually confuses them, which makes it funnier for me. I'm surprised it didn't have anything to do with BWF.

Erica is Lost in the Music on September 14, 2022 at 7:52 pm

Brian is one of the reasons I went back, starting with GMCL, and binge watched every episode ever. There were just so many WTF inside jokes and I HAD to know. 😂

PJ on September 14, 2022 at 12:16 pm

I really enjoy the Origins series. Please have D'Arcy Carden back on, I love her :)

Brennan J Lowry on September 14, 2022 at 11:18 am

So pumped these are back. The first 4 episodes of the series were the impetus for me joining the society.

Matthew Shephard on September 14, 2022 at 10:52 am

I'm with Link on this one -- Rhyming is totally a boolean thing.

CAROL SCHUMACHER on September 14, 2022 at 10:19 am

I always just thought it was some kind of weird reference to that old meme "Bad Luck Brian" lol

Julia Okońska on September 14, 2022 at 9:07 am

That moment when you revealed Link was the one who ripped the sticker!!! So great!
And the sticker collection at the back of the cabinet is really speaking to me, because I have my own little collection of stickers from CDs that are like "new album, including this hit song and 2 bonus tracks" 😄

Kirsty J on September 14, 2022 at 8:46 am

I’m so happy these are back! Just in time for my birthday tomorrow.
These are brilliantly funny and interesting and I hope we eventually get a further trilogy.

Camden Cunningham on September 14, 2022 at 8:06 am

Renewed my membership just for these

Jacqueline Thornton-Praharaj on September 14, 2022 at 5:47 am

Love the origins series!
