I started watching in 2018 and cannot thank you both enough for the laugher and joy you have brought to my daily routine! I'm so glad I came across GMM and look forward to all future content!

Current Rhett: "I've gotten happier I will say"
Past Thett: *Nods* πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ that timing was chef's kiss

How crazy is it that the person who introduced me to GMM is that Mythical Beast in the very beginning of this video!! To my good friend Brandon Hope, thank you for introducing me to these two wonderful and amazing people! I have been a Mythical Beast since 2012! You guys are doing amazing!

Tara Davis on February 7, 2022 at 2:18 pm

Ok, soo I have been a mythical beast since 2016. Long story short, I had just found out my husband was hard into drugs. He left for two weeks (not knowing if he was dead or alive) and I was left in the house he tore to pieces from end to end before he left. I was alone and scared not knowing what to do next. So I got on YouTube and watched videos of anything I could find. On one of those 14days, I came across your episode of the Bean Boozled JellyBeans and the rest as they say is history. I can not express my gratitude enough that you, Rhett & Link, have saved my life. I was laughing during the darkest times of my life. So THANK YOU!
Side note: my husband, Jason and I made it out the other side as Mythical Beasts. Life doesn't get much better than this! πŸ–€

Incredible how long ago that was

Laura Tessier on February 3, 2022 at 3:00 am

I've completed the GMM marathon a few times, every GMM, GMMore, LTAT and the Mythical Show. I have way too much time on my hands, but who better to spend it with?!

Tamrie Oliver on February 3, 2022 at 6:29 pm

I've tried so hard to do this!

Diane Scott on February 2, 2022 at 6:27 pm

You men have become more beautiful. πŸ’œπŸ’œ Thanks for ten years of GMM.

Noe Ramirez on February 2, 2022 at 5:54 am

I've been a fan of you guys since 2012, I've seen every episode and I never seen that puzzle piece before.

Melanie Esterl on February 1, 2022 at 5:11 pm

Is it ocd or is it a good mix of Adhs and autism. In my case it's the last two - and I often feel seen through how link is acting and reacting.

Andi Bruce on February 2, 2022 at 12:17 pm

genuinely the more I watch these videos I'm like, Link, buddy, you're too much of an autistic vibe for it to be a coincidence

Melanie Esterl on February 2, 2022 at 11:59 pm

yeah right?! but since i found those guys i honestly can relate to their stages of growth, and that’s so satisfying. on the other hand i m questioning if he just got better at masking and if heβ€˜s really doing okay.

StormCrow on January 30, 2022 at 3:36 pm

found the puzzle, but the link doesn't work, so can't stick the 45th word in anywhere.

Emmy on January 30, 2022 at 1:55 pm

omg LOL Rhett's reaction to the quick beep after the mythical app answer. Loved it

Emmy on January 30, 2022 at 1:57 pm

why did this comment post here, I was watching the family feud episode XD

Abigail Morris on February 1, 2022 at 8:11 am

I've noticed you can keep watching different episodes from the video viewer, but the page doesn't actually change. The comments would be only be for the video you started with.

Dale Johnson on January 30, 2022 at 8:46 am

PS....... we are also celebrating 10 years marred on the 14 of January. We've been long time fan ( even before GMM) you guys rock. πŸ€ŸπŸ˜β€οΈπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

Dale Johnson on January 30, 2022 at 8:42 am

my wife is teaching me how to comment on these posts. I'm not great at technology but I need to let you guys know how awesome you are. thanks for the laughs.

Rebecca Hemmingson on January 29, 2022 at 10:54 pm

Rhett's "I've gotten happier" awwh ❀️ and Link definitely got more outgoing heh but it's amazing what 10 years can do, I love time comparisons so much

Keith R Ross on January 29, 2022 at 4:40 am

To watch all 2,100 gmm episodes,all good mythical more episodes,all 300+ ear biscuits,both seasons of buddy system,gmm society and any other content how long would it take??? 6 months of LOL???

Laurie Owen on January 29, 2022 at 5:40 am

Rhett is so correct he is still the same πŸ˜† Links has undergone a huge set of changes however.πŸ˜‰ But that is what life is about. Glad I found GMM.☺

Somer Flowers on January 29, 2022 at 2:10 am

I started watching in 2013, and it's been so fun getting to come along on this journey with you guys and the whole mythical crew. I'm so thankful and grateful to be a mythical beast. ❀️

Kristina Glasgow on January 28, 2022 at 4:21 pm

I think I started watching sporadically around spring 2019. Youtube kept recommending Mythical content to me. To the point where I was getting annoyed because I was addicted to The Irish People Try channel (couldn't tell you the last time I watched them) at that time as well as a couple of others. Kept watching GMM, etc anyways. I didn't realize there were shows, etc on youtube until 2019. Only used it for music discovery and clips from television before then.

Started picking up speed in the summer. Didn't know about the Society as I wasn't watching in order. Missed out on the Merle Haggard vinyl. I'm a big fan of Merle's so I ended up paying $250+ on ebay for it. (Now selling for over $300 so at least value has risen since my investment. Not that I'd sell.) This is when I started watching in order.

December is when I started binging. My job partially shut down due to the pandemic for three months or so in... March or April? I managed to watch every episode of GMM, GMMore, The Mythical Show, Good Morning Chia Lincoln, and possibly Buddy System during that time frame. Some I watched more than once. I look back and shake my head at myself. It was insane to watch that much content in so short a frame of time.

Think I started at episode one in December actually. It was in September or so that I had started watching new episodes daily in addition to old ones. Saw the movie and the tour doc also at that time. Sure helped with the stress and panic of those first several months of the pandemic and the wild toilet paper hunt.

I had badly hurt my back at work in January 2020 (I manage a food bank - students brought a load of food and 4-5 boxes fell on me - piled wrong). I blame my vegetative morning-to-night Mythical youtube state at that time on being barely able to move for at least a month.

It's interesting to see not only the change in formats but the growth Rhett and Link show throughout as people.

Surprises me to think that I've only known of Rhett and Link for coming on 3 years. I'm positive I saw their short-lived hosting duties on Online Nation at the time though. "One Tree Hill", "Angel", "Charmed"... was watching a lot of that station. Can't remember what I thought of it at the time.

Would be interesting to see them react to the first episode of each season of GMM.

Emily Houck on January 28, 2022 at 2:19 pm

i remember going back to season one & being shook that the wheel spun the "wrong" way. πŸ˜‚ then they addressed in a later episode that it couldn't spin correctly the other way & it all made sense.

Savannah Batson on January 28, 2022 at 5:38 am

I'd like to point out that although they were a bit awkward, if you watched the episode not knowing the number you'd think they were further along than the 1st episode. they are so natural at what they do, they were born for this! of course you guys have some so far, but i know if I tried to make a video like this itd be a trainwreck. keep being mythical!

Amy Scalf on January 28, 2022 at 1:11 am

Have you considered letting Link cut someone's hair as an episode? maybe the someone is a Mythical Beast? this is an awesome idea.

Hillary Bennett on January 27, 2022 at 9:37 pm

He would be silent the whole time since he wants to be a silent hair stylist and he can't do something and talk.

Jamie Flinton on January 27, 2022 at 4:40 pm

love you guys this was awesome to watch!

Shell on January 27, 2022 at 2:48 pm

this was great! loved seeing you guys react to the origins of gmm. i remember seeing the trailer and being super excited because i missed good morning chia lincoln so much!

fyi: the puzzle pieces showed a pic of you guys holding the lionel album, with instructions to go to a website and enter a password which was a certain word in the lyrics of "all night long"

the website showed a little video of link and lincoln, and instructions for how to access a special secret live "puzzle kast"

ahh, memories! :)

Erica is Lost in the Music on January 27, 2022 at 9:27 pm

Same pose. πŸ€―πŸ˜‚ What a great thumbnail!
A British women's prison?? Oh my goodness,. I bet they are MOST entertained. πŸ˜‚ OH GOSH. 🀣 Seriously, though, I bet that GMM is the very best part of their day. πŸ₯ΊπŸ₯°
I remember when I first started watching, I'd just watch the random ones YouTube would throw at me. seeing Link with the older hair, I had the hardest time reconciling them as the same friggin person. Link has changed so much. πŸ–€
I see Rhett is still calling Link insane. πŸ€£πŸ‘πŸ»
Why do I not remember the puzzle at all?? 🀯 WHAT
It HAS become something great. It's wonderful, y'all. Thank you. πŸ₯ΊπŸ₯°

Jasmine Fierheller on January 27, 2022 at 5:52 pm

it's crazy that he literally looks like he barely aged 2 years

FT Alex on February 14, 2022 at 11:46 am

So crazy

Katie McFarland on January 27, 2022 at 5:32 pm

does the website still actually work?

Everett M. on January 28, 2022 at 2:12 pm

Sadly, if you go RhettAndLink.com nowadays (which is where the puzzle lead you) it just takes you to the Mythical store.
But if you like to go back to the past like me, you can go to Archive.org (AKA: The WayBack Machine) and search RhettAndLink.com into their browser and then you can see their website from any year since it was created til now.

(I'd recommend it, it's really fun to see their website from like 2007)
