watching this video and seeing them try to figure it all out is wild considering where they are now

Testing my comment ability in 2021 NVM me!

This is so sweet. I wish I had known about all this back then. I would have been 21 years old. I was just diving into alt-country back then so I probably was too obsessed with Whiskeytown, etc to pay much attention to much else. I'll be 34 in a couple of months. Link was so soft spoken - the accent heavier. Rhett really came into his own when he lost the chin strap.

So cute when Link asked "How do we get viewers"? If we could only tell him, just be yourself and eventually, millions will love you!

Laurie Owen on March 26, 2019 at 6:18 pm

Felt like I needed to watch this one again! So hilarious how Rhett just looks so bored with whatever Link is saying or showing him. Least nothing has changed lol!

Tonya Larissa Fogleman on March 7, 2019 at 12:20 pm

I love these old kasts so much. I would do anything for it to be back then again. Watching that made me feel so special.

It is really cool seeing the difference between the beginning to now. Thank you for posting this

Adrian Molina on October 31, 2020 at 3:31 pm

This is just purely amazing. I love it.

Poppie Searchfield on March 7, 2019 at 5:34 am

"if you build it they will come" ...and we did!

Christy Hendrix on March 29, 2019 at 5:03 pm

Yes they did! Great prophesy Link

Rodrigo Hernandez on February 14, 2019 at 12:30 am

“It’s like fishing” -Link 😂

Ty Bommersbach on February 12, 2019 at 11:56 pm

So, interesting. YouTube in its infancy too. Link was like the hype man during this. Rhett seemed a little overwhelmed.

Melanie Webb on February 12, 2019 at 9:29 pm

That was pretty awesome to see. Where it all started kind of. The amateur and how different everyone looked.

Violet Attraczy on February 12, 2019 at 8:55 pm

This was strange. The first live in YouTube doesn't work good. It seems. And no one understood what is it.

Aaron Dionne on February 12, 2019 at 5:29 pm

I love how you guys never changed how you are in front of the Camara , looking back this far in to the videos you guys have made makes all of your videos make feel genuine , keep up what you guys are doing and keep being your mythical selfs

Melissa bernardo on February 11, 2019 at 5:15 pm

Those two had no idea what was in store for them in their future!

Nicole Bonn on February 8, 2019 at 7:43 pm

My 3 year old daughter just saw the thumbnail to this and said what's wrong with Rhett? What happened to his face? I thought it was so funny I had to share.

Amy Scalf on February 8, 2019 at 5:49 pm

RIVETING! Looks like the beginning of an awesome adventure! Onward

Mallord Jordan McIntyre on February 6, 2019 at 8:15 pm

They're so adorable!! Makes me happy for them. Starting off a little frustrated "Oh, look that person left", "How do we make them stay?" Now they have it all and more.

TheCuriousWorlds on February 25, 2019 at 6:09 am

What a spectacular testament to their dedication.

On one hand, it's watching the seeds get planted- ideas so fundamental to the current empire that it's (almost) comical or alien. On the other hand, the tone and relationship between the two is unchanged. If a piece of the audio had been presented as a "behind the scenes" clip on Ear Biscuits, I would never believe that it wasn't some bit of downtime on set while the guys had their hair touched up, Alex and Josh bustling around before the next challenge, in a studio packed with equipment and crew.

Casey Dawson on February 6, 2019 at 9:05 am

I just recently was introduced to GMM in the last year. All I can say is thank goodness, because A younger me would have instantly judge these guys based on their looks and I probably would have been turned of to watching anymore of their (come to find out) amazing programming. I care about these guys doing well and their community doing well also. I think these show we all have grown since the beginning.

Austin Shoemake on February 6, 2019 at 7:00 am

Am I the only one that felt wired seeing Link sitting on the Left and Rhett sitting on the Right?

GingerSnaps on February 6, 2019 at 3:39 pm

Right?!?!?! Why are they on the wrong side of the desk?

Amy Neal on February 11, 2019 at 6:03 pm

I saw them do an interview once that explained it. They initially sat that way because Rhett would play the guitar and he didn't want to hit Link with the neck. They switched places later on when they did a live show in front of their logo and realized that they were sitting under each others names. Just a fun bit of trivia for you today.

Alicia Jensen on February 18, 2019 at 4:34 pm

That’s so cool to know.

Deb Heidrich on February 6, 2019 at 6:42 am

You guys are the most amazing people EVER! ❤️

Tai Blomberg on February 4, 2019 at 3:34 pm

It's so funny how rhett is so uninterested with what link has to say. Nothing has changed lol

Haley Oxford on March 6, 2019 at 4:52 pm

omg i was thinking the same thing lol

MythicalBeast4319 on February 4, 2019 at 4:51 pm

You know, we take for granted 4K content nowadays. Thank god for high quality videos. LOL

Pontus Viklund on February 4, 2019 at 3:57 pm

You think she still has that water boiler up for trade?

Ulrika Erlandsson on February 4, 2019 at 12:59 pm

Wow! I love this, look how far they've come :)

Ryan Weatherford on February 4, 2019 at 12:09 pm

Interesting to see the beginnings of what we call GMM now. I didn't expect it to be Rhett and Link sitting there hashing out the entire concept during the first episode, but it was fascinating to see the thought process going on at the time when this was still a very new thing.

Andrew Rogers on February 4, 2019 at 5:42 am

From 0 to 15mil

Tonya Larissa Fogleman on February 3, 2019 at 8:12 am

I love the Kasts so much...

Jana Stephens on February 3, 2019 at 6:38 am

This is absolutely amazing 😄

Joshua Strouth on February 3, 2019 at 2:36 am

Yo! Why does Rhett look like he belongs in a 90's boy band?? LOL

Tanner Ellingson on February 2, 2019 at 11:38 pm

Rhett and Link,

Love the expansion of the mythical society!

One question about the exclusiveness of the mythical society. Is the mythical store discount exclusive to mythical society members who have earned it? Or is the discount code useable by any one who has it?

If the code could be used by anyone, and the code gets out of the mythical society, that is not fair to mythical society members who have been told the discount is exclusive to them.

BTW Great decision to build this society!
👍 R&L

I realize the code being leaked is out of your control, just wondering if the current authentication system is more secure than I have made it seem, or if a more secure system needs to established to maintain the exclusiveness of the society. Not trying to rant! Just looking out for the Mythical Beasts.

Thanks for reading!

Heather (Lady Cynthiana) on February 2, 2019 at 11:21 pm

I'm excited to be able to talk to more people about the Kasts! I watched them all in 2015 and occasionally I would watch a few of them back since then. Hardly could find anyone else who had watched them!

Denise Decamp on February 2, 2019 at 9:19 pm

I love that Link has more facial hair than Rhett in this video! We’re we all so young in ‘07?!

JaeTee on February 2, 2019 at 5:38 pm

sounded like the beginning of your idea for the daily morning show.

Wolf on February 2, 2019 at 1:04 pm

Man this makes me so happy. I love the Kast. They were so adorable. They're both just so tiny!
