Rhett, You absolutely should do this. My grandpa used to tell us some crazy stories from his days as a kid on the farm. They were mostly absurd and made up, but always the same and his cackle about it would make us all laugh. He passed several years ago. I would love to have a tape of him telling those stories to pull out for my kids and eventually my grandkids.

“The foundation of Rhett & Link”…that’s a documentary I’d be dying to see. I’m from Arkansas so I can only imagine the stories your family has to share with us. Everything is different in the south lol

I loveeee that idea, to document the stories of a family member or multiple members, cause I absolutely adore the old stories my grandmas tell me about their mothers, or about how my parents and aunt and uncles grew up. especially for me- I'm half German half American and there are soooooo many stories and probably, even more, I don't know of.
Id love to tell those stories to my children one day. I just decided i will record my families stories the next times i will see them- i just love this!

Grew up with a massive southern family full of loud aunts and uncles. My mother is the youngest of 9 and they all have the craziest stories and inside jokes that most people don't believe whenever I share. This one really hit home. Thanks for making these, guys.

I gave Storyworth to my parents two years ago. They would get a weekly prompt by email to write a story about their lives. The stories are compiled into a book - I've ordered three copies of my parents' stories already.

Everything is because of the Pokemon.

Link, at some point you said, "Mind if I record this?" and honestly, that's kind of a cool title for a doc.

i'm new to the mythical Society subscription and I must say I really enjoyed this carpool vlog! I really enjoy saying Rhett and link outside of the good mythical morning setting!

I have this kind of video on a dvd of my grandparents and my grandmum's sisters that are no longer here. It is probably the most valuable thing I own, to remember peoples voices and faces after years they've been gone.

I am very blessed. My aunt has done all the research about my dads side of the family and we can tract the lineage pretty far back. She even found out that we are descendants of Old King Cole from the nursery rhyme “Old king Cole had a merry old soul…” we have tons and tons of stories, knowledge, and facts about the family all written and charted into binders for us to add to and continue to pass down

Old stories are the best.

Lyd Krietemeyer on November 11, 2021 at 4:52 pm

I actually really needed this... I'm 18 and I have always been super close to my great-grandmother who just turned 82. My whole life, she'd take me out onto the porch and tell me all of these stories about her childhood and I always appreciated them. Ever since my great-grandfather passed in 2019, I'm realizing more that time is super valuable. Now, I'm going to actually do something about it!

Erin Van Handel on November 11, 2021 at 3:06 pm

RE: the driver who turned left before the other car went straight - Anyone else heard that called a "pick and roll"? I'm in Wisconsin; maybe it's regional?

Joshua Genke on November 23, 2021 at 6:15 pm

I'm in Wisconsin as well and I've never heard that term.

Maya Ramesar on November 11, 2021 at 6:14 pm

I dig little insights into their creative process like this

Evelyn Fields on November 10, 2021 at 11:16 am

This is the first time I've ever watched one of their car vlogs, but I think it's my new favorite thing. I am always fascinated by people and enjoy observing them do everyday things, and I enjoy watching their behavior, conversation, and body language. I was particularly drawn to Link, just looking at him drive and how his expression shifts based on his focus. I also loved Rhett's excitement and observation of things on the drive. Part of me wishes I could sit in the back seat and enjoy the ride with them.

MaryJo Magee on November 11, 2021 at 5:01 pm

Lonely Red Witch, right? I saw the Utube

Evelyn Fields on November 12, 2021 at 1:42 am

Yeah that's me! I hope it was enjoyable to a fellow Mythical Beast. I've honestly been so anxious after posting it.

MaryJo Magee on November 11, 2021 at 5:02 pm

The car Vlogs are my favorite- relaxed just two friends chatting and driving.

Cassandra J Plante on November 10, 2021 at 6:19 pm

The carpool vlogs are my favorite!! I just love listening to them talk about anything! Probably why I love Ear Biscuits.

Heather Pellegrini on November 10, 2021 at 7:04 am

I’m genuinely surprised link knew who boomhauer even was, I didn’t even think he watched King of the hill lol unless maybe he’s seen snippets of it I guess 🤷🏻‍♀️

Jessica Jennings on November 10, 2021 at 6:04 am

The best parts of this video (even though it was all great) were "Now that Wafflehouse is involved" and them yelling at the car 🤣

Erin Van Handel on November 11, 2021 at 3:04 pm

Yes, "Now that Waffle House is involved" was cracking me up!

Beverley Smith on November 10, 2021 at 1:21 am

Life stories, Southern style! I'm so ready for that documentary 👍

ShineLoveHeart on November 9, 2021 at 4:17 pm

I wonder what this project they're working is about? A title for it I guess could be something like The Untold Stories of Rhett & Link? The Family Video Diaries of Rhett & Link? Just brainstorming here lol.

Carissa Berlinger on November 9, 2021 at 4:12 pm

Maybe a possible solution for the stories is making it a tradition in the family no matter how old you are [ especially around the holidays when the family gets together ). You can all record stories and look back at them throughout the year or whenever you feel like hearing a memory from your relatives again. When you've lost them you could also hear their voices again and that's something I always wished I had more of with family members or loved ones that have passed away.

Rebecca C on November 9, 2021 at 3:32 pm

I always encourage my clients to have videos at their weddings so they have that footage of older relatives when they’re gone. My family has a really open attitude about death, what we would like to happen when we die (we are all donating our bodies to science) etc. I think it’s really important to talk about it, it’s a huge and painful part of life.

Mark Stanley on November 9, 2021 at 2:44 pm

My father will tell stories at the drop of a hat, but it occurs to me that I don't have a lot of that from my mother. She's private and she's not a storyteller, at least to me. If I ask myself what brings my mother joy, I can't actually answer that question.

So... thanks. Guess that's a conversation I should have.

Erica is Lost in the Music on November 9, 2021 at 7:42 pm

I did this to my grandpa a couple years ago. He just turned 98 last month & doesn't think he's got another year in him. He survived the depression, WWII, a heart attack, burying 2 wives and his only daughter (my mom), he even survived Covid a few months ago (he said it was scarier than the War bc he couldn't see the enemy). The man has been through a LOT. One day when we were visiting, he started going into some of his life and what he's learned and, early in the conversation, I happened to have my phone in my hand so I hit the camera and started recording. He went on and on for about 4 minutes, just regaling us with memories from his childhood and the war (what he will disclose about the war, anyway), etc. It was awesome. Eventually he realized I was recording and he started laughing because he had no idea, heh. It was beautiful. I'll always hold those memories close to my heart. Man. I need to get that video offa the Cloud and onto my hard drive or something.

Rachel Howe on November 11, 2021 at 2:29 am

That's a great idea - Erica, love your stories :)
I recorded my (now passed) great grandmothers birthday and rediscovered the VHS of it a few weeks back. It's important to record those things because you never get time back.

Erica is Lost in the Music on November 11, 2021 at 2:10 pm

Amen! 🙌🏻 I'm going back to Oklahoma for Christmas this year, so hopefully I'll get a chance to video him even more. 🖤

Mark Stanley on November 9, 2021 at 2:30 pm

Thanks for sharing this, Erica! I wasn't old enough to have this kind of interaction with my grandfather, so it makes me smile to hear about other people's.

Erica is Lost in the Music on November 9, 2021 at 10:32 pm

Aw! Thanks for the feedback, Mark! 🥰
Sometimes I feel like I'm too long-winded on these things. 🙈😂

Mark Stanley on November 9, 2021 at 2:45 pm

Nah, I always like reading your comments!

Erica is Lost in the Music on November 9, 2021 at 11:41 pm

Thank you so much, Mark! 🥺🙏🏻🥰
