Loved this project.

Link's Southern accent really rolling as he talks about the curtains.

Allison Seibel on December 2, 2021 at 12:37 am

YAS BEN! More Ben Eck please it made me so happy to see him this much for the first time in a LONG time!

Kristina Glasgow on January 10, 2022 at 5:22 pm

We see him so rarely that I'm always surprised by his awesome ink. Love it.

Ekaterina Bezruchenko on November 28, 2021 at 3:35 am

what? I thought it was al ive event somewhere in LA...

Ekaterina Bezruchenko on November 28, 2021 at 3:26 am

you added the backward song in the appearance of Hazel moment in the house in post? wouldn't it be easier to play it in the studio and then just pres stop?)

Ekaterina Bezruchenko on November 27, 2021 at 9:42 am

I don't know why but I thought that Jenna was playing the part of Hazel when I saw the film. And now I see that Paige really looks like Jenna. creepy?

Aaron Shauinger on November 27, 2021 at 12:38 am

I caught this as the full video on YT and it STILL creeped me out. Don't think I would have slept seeing it on TT. Haha. Awesome work.

Aaron Ettestad on November 16, 2021 at 9:14 pm

might be my fav BTM so far, lot of cool insight into how this was pulled off

Tristan Therien on October 31, 2021 at 12:51 pm

This was my favorite skit from rhett and link

Ben Sloma on October 28, 2021 at 6:43 pm

this project was the perfect amount of spooky! we loved it!

Katie M Wilson on October 27, 2021 at 12:51 pm

I enjoyed this entire project so much! love the "Amish" outfits

Krista Sahai on October 27, 2021 at 7:34 pm

Do you or anyone know if this song was made just for this skit? I went immediately to iTunes to see what the rest of the album sounded like and there was only this one song, Take My Place. Does anybody know if she's on other albums?

Mark Stanley on October 27, 2021 at 7:59 pm

The song was created just for this. Hazel Macon was played by Paige Herschell and she also sang Hazel's version of the song.

You should also be able to find the Macon Brothers version of the song -- I think it's been a bit less prominent in searches, but it should be findable by specifically searching for Macon Brothers Take My Place. (I know it's on YouTube and Spotify.)

Krista Sahai on October 28, 2021 at 8:04 am

Wait a minute, are the Macon Brothers just Rhett and Link? Did you just Macon Brothers roll me?

Mark Stanley on October 28, 2021 at 12:54 pm

Yes, they are! I didn't mean to imply otherwise, sorry!

Krista Sahai on October 28, 2021 at 2:25 am

Thanks!

Rachel Szczesny on October 27, 2021 at 12:22 am

once I saw a playlist I knew something was up that night! but thank you thank you thank you for sharing the creation of this story! I studied filmmaking; link I understand the need to explain the curtain mishap!!!! love you guys

Kathy Decker on October 25, 2021 at 2:19 pm

At first I was upset at you for tricking us about making songs with us. But I quickly got over it as things quickly moved along. (for the story) Brilliant and bravo!!! I hope more of these mini movies are made!!

Lindsay Huntoon on October 25, 2021 at 3:03 am

so happy to see them doing more different and creative projects!

Caroline Harris on October 24, 2021 at 8:01 pm

When watching Hazel with my 9yo she hid her face during the scary parts; laughed at Link looking weird and talking silly; and she has since made many jokes where she throws things and says "just like a rotisserie chicken".
I love that this will be part of her memories of her childhood ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Chantal Merrill on October 24, 2021 at 3:59 pm

This was genuinely one of my favorite things you guys have ever done!

Christopher Brodt on October 24, 2021 at 12:05 pm

I loved the Blair Witch Project, and I think this is a great nod towards this type of horror. The singing adds a great touch that just added to the creepy vibe. Grear Job, love you guys!

Erin Shirley on October 23, 2021 at 3:39 pm

This was amazing! Whose house was this, or is this the "office" house?

Erin Shirley on October 23, 2021 at 3:49 pm

nvm I missed it the first time, showing the creative house :)

Aleigh Beckley on October 23, 2021 at 10:29 pm

Link must be like my mom and the more tired he gets the more his southern accent comes out lol.

Erica Valente on October 23, 2021 at 11:44 am

This was an amazing project. Well done to all!

Claire Feist on October 23, 2021 at 4:37 pm

I think "big boys having a sleepover just cussin'!" is one of the funniest things I've heard all week

Holly Wesener on October 23, 2021 at 6:07 pm

agree. I'm glad he didn't let Link interrupting stop him from saying that. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Joseph Fraley on October 23, 2021 at 3:07 pm

big boys having a sleep over just cussing lol

Shawn Ward on October 23, 2021 at 12:26 pm

Rhett&Link deserve all the success in the world!! The amount of work that went into shooting a 22 min video for TikTok is astonishing and I think its one of the best things I've seen from them yet!! Please do more things like this.๐Ÿคฉ

Rachel Black on October 22, 2021 at 10:48 pm

This was so great - thank you for taking us behind the scenes! Paige has such a beautiful voice, loved all of it!

Marietta on October 23, 2021 at 2:03 am

anyone notice the Rhett and Link pop funkos at 12:07? are those a real thing?

Mary Jo on October 22, 2021 at 4:17 pm

Rhett and Link always creating new content and evolving and just generally being awesome, Hazel was an unexpected but fabulous mini movi, can't wait to see what else Mythical has up their sleeves!

Gabriela Ramirez on October 22, 2021 at 12:17 pm

Yaโ€™ll definitely need to make another mini horror series! This was amazing!!!

Evelyn Fields on October 22, 2021 at 11:12 am

On ear biscuits, they seemed so unsure if we would like this yet I feel like this is an amazing example of their ability to come up with creative ideas, find the people and resources to make the idea come together, in a high-quality way, and market the idea to us in a smart way that benefits both parties. Rhett and Link are not only very creative but very smart, which is why I love them and their work so much. Another amazing creation, well done!

Ashley Casperite on October 22, 2021 at 7:49 am

Loved this so much!

Rachel Harris on October 22, 2021 at 10:12 am

Perfect timing! I watched it yesterday morning and you guys posted this last night! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐ŸŽ‰

Rachel Harris on October 22, 2021 at 10:14 am

I also just got the patch and pin delivered! ๐Ÿคฉ ๐ŸŽ‰

Pamela Warren on October 22, 2021 at 10:09 am

Link's southern accent was heavy in this!

amazing! thanks for sharing!

Frank Holdiness on October 22, 2021 at 6:38 am

Amazing job Guys, took me back to the Blair Witch days.. Crazy how yall did that video in such a short period of time! Ready for more!!!

Heather Kreager on October 22, 2021 at 5:37 am

that was great. now you need to do a part 2.

Frank Holdiness on October 22, 2021 at 6:36 am

I agree! Part 2, the escape from the Yearning cover.. or just a different horror tale. They did a great Job with this one.

Heather Kreager on October 22, 2021 at 6:43 am

this time play it with what Link see when Rhett goes into it.

Cassidy Van Houtan on October 22, 2021 at 3:04 am

i fully thought Links back ground on his phone was a jo*nt but i think it's a bowl cereal, which is on brand ๐Ÿ˜‚

Laurie Owen on October 22, 2021 at 2:36 am

All the hard work definitely paid off! I always enjoy seeing that hard work revealed.๐Ÿ˜

Candace Underhill on October 22, 2021 at 1:10 am

This is so freaking awesome!! I loved it all. ๐Ÿ˜ Also, tell your wives the decor is amazing. I'm so glad I got to be there for it in real time.

Bianca Trotter on October 22, 2021 at 12:49 am

Loved all of this. But the cassette coffee table has me obsessed.

Deja on October 22, 2021 at 12:43 am

I loved how into it everyone was. this is great! amazing job, boys and crew!

Alison Menzies on October 21, 2021 at 5:34 pm

I love this little horror film so much! It was so unexpected because you guys usually do comedy sketches. This was so well done, I love ghost stories with mythology.
What was up with Link's accent when he was talking about the curtain? Was he putting it on, or did it get stronger because he was tired because it was past his bedtime?

Christina Price on October 21, 2021 at 6:01 pm

I think he was doing it on purpose to make sure he still could stay in character for his alternate self. Or it was accidental just because he'd been playing that character and kept slipping into the accent.

Megan Halfpapp on October 22, 2021 at 12:14 am

so exciting to see how it came together! cannot wait for more! great work guys!

Katrina Conrad on October 21, 2021 at 5:00 pm

I usually don't watched horror movies but I watched this. It was really creepy and gave me the chills. This skit is honesty one of the coolest things they've ever done. Genuinely amazingly horrifying. ๐Ÿ‘ป

Chloe Sims on October 21, 2021 at 11:55 pm

I'm obsessed with tiktok and I'm obsessed with this

Daniel Boutin on October 21, 2021 at 4:35 pm

The singer's voice is very haunting. Perfect for this! Very well done.

Amanda Dodson on October 21, 2021 at 11:24 pm

I usually can't watch scary things, but I'm glad I watched! This is so cool to see some of the behind the scenes magic! Also feel safer knowing Stevie was there to fight the demon lady if needed.

Katie Kite on October 21, 2021 at 11:11 pm

I'm a huge baby but this had me so genuinely spooked it was so fun! and the song is beautiful

Kelly Slagle on October 21, 2021 at 10:55 pm

Great job, everyone!! I really enjoyed it. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Halle Sklivas on October 21, 2021 at 3:31 pm

Hazel was AMAZING!!! And I always love to see the Mythical Crew in their element :)

Marie Apodaca on October 21, 2021 at 3:08 pm

This has me wanting a full movie of any genre produced by Mythical. It's insane to me that this hasn't happened already. I saw it "live" as it unfolded on TikTok and was so impressed and genuinely frightened. So well done

Heather Pellegrini on October 21, 2021 at 10:07 pm

love seeing the behind stuff especially this one, really awesome! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Karen Mauck on October 21, 2021 at 2:58 pm

This was fantastic and fascinating to watch how you did this, and I had to go back to watch the video yet again, because I did not catch the part with Link's hat! Great touch! What else did I miss?

Kaesh Johnson on October 21, 2021 at 9:39 pm

I've watched Hazel all the way through 4 times, how did I never notice the hat?? too focused on the pinging bird sounds I guess

jacquelin Davis on October 21, 2021 at 5:45 pm

I'm with you. I had to watch again after I saw this because I missed the hat. Technically I could have just watched that part, but Hazel made me sit through the whole story. :3

Adam Temple on October 21, 2021 at 2:18 pm

This whole Hazel project was great! It was so different from anything that Mythical has done before. Thank you for doing this and for putting in soo much hard work. It paid off.

Christina Hauze on October 21, 2021 at 2:15 pm

This was so fun to watch and really spooky. Rhett and Link always amaze me. Such talented boys.

Tiffany on October 21, 2021 at 8:26 pm

peep the skin wallz cameo

Halle Sklivas on October 21, 2021 at 3:30 pm

literally one of the first things I thought of when I first watched Hazel lmao

Mark Stanley on October 21, 2021 at 1:24 pm

Yay, it's great to have behind the scenes for a wonderful story!

jacquelin Davis on October 21, 2021 at 1:13 pm

How do I add this to my favorites?

Mythical Society Admin on October 21, 2021 at 5:06 pm

There should be a heart under the video (in the bottom left corner). Click that button and it will be added to your favorites :)

jacquelin Davis on October 22, 2021 at 1:28 pm

Thank you!

Jessica Ross on October 21, 2021 at 1:04 pm

Oh my goodness
Thank you for sharing this! I loved this video and all the effort put in is amazing. Shout out to Ben, great job !!

jacquelin Davis on October 21, 2021 at 1:03 pm

I can't say how much I enjoyed this BTS. It was a great addition to the masterpiece that was Hazel.

Michele Jalbert on October 21, 2021 at 12:54 pm

WOW! Loved watching this! It was amazing to see it all come together! Release the song guys, itโ€™s sooooo good! You are both so talented and you have an awesome crew! Loved seeing Stevie there too ๐Ÿฅฐ

Kayce Lissau on October 21, 2021 at 7:20 pm

How fun and fascinating to watch all the super rad behind the scenes details! Amazing job to everyone. We loved this storytelling!

Elizabeth Casimiro on October 21, 2021 at 12:11 pm

Wow!!! This is fascinating! Thank yโ€™all for doing BTS.

Emma Hill on October 21, 2021 at 12:06 pm

the attention to detail will never cease to amaze me

Erika K Jones on October 21, 2021 at 7:03 pm

it's so cool to see all the tiny details that get taken into account (the hat, the coffee, the curtain etc) keep it up over there...you're all pretty amazing ๐Ÿ˜

Natalie Jones on October 21, 2021 at 6:54 pm

Thank y'all SO much for making a BTM for this! It was really cool to watch! โค๏ธ

Nathan Moore on October 21, 2021 at 6:48 pm

Dude I know they did great on this cause I nearly wet my pants!!

Karen Knoth on October 21, 2021 at 6:38 pm

fascinating

Erica Darnell on October 21, 2021 at 6:38 pm

I can't rightly express how much I thoroughly enjoyed all of this. I mean, there's just SO MUCH to love!
The old timey outfits were REALLY cool; I adore the whole Appalachian aesthetic.
I liked seeing the phone propped against the almonds up in the cabinet. Sometimes it really do be like that. ๐Ÿ˜‚
Man, Paige did so remarkably well in this!! She played the role perfectly!
I looooove hearing the thick Southern accents. Sounds like home. ๐Ÿฅบ
Then there's all the other stuff like the actual music... OOF!
And the extreme attention to detail in this is just awe inspiring. Bravo, y'all. [*tips hat, throws roses*] ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿฅฐ

Taylor Wright on October 21, 2021 at 11:23 am

side note: rhett and link are aging like fine wine

Taylor Wright on October 21, 2021 at 11:19 am

"my old timey hip flexa is acting up on me" lolllll this was a great btm. love it :)

Alexandra Wolfe on October 21, 2021 at 6:08 pm

Love it! This behind the scenes stuff is one of the many reasons I joined 3rd Degree.

Mary Jo on October 22, 2021 at 4:10 pm

Me too....BTS videos are so worth 3rd degree !

Theresa Raymond on October 21, 2021 at 10:40 am

This was so much fun to watch. Thanks for sharing the bts.

Somer Flowers on October 21, 2021 at 5:40 pm

That was just awesome to get to see some behind the scenes stuff! Enjoyed the mini movie and loved every second!

Linda Kinney on October 21, 2021 at 5:32 pm

that was amazing! loved looking behind the mythicality. โค

CasSandra Masci on October 21, 2021 at 5:27 pm
