– Are time travelers really real?
– Let’s talk about that. ♪ (theme music) ♪ – Good Mythical Morning!
– Today is October 21st, 2015, the infamous destination day
for Marty McFly and Doc Brown in – Back to the Future Part II.
– Mm! Now, that movie was released in 1989, so
their 26-year leap into the future is now – our present.
– Whoa! And they delivered on a number of
predictions including hoverboards, thumb print payment, drone cameras,
video calling, and the wild popularity of – PewDiePie.
– Oh ho! That’s not true. So, in the spirit of Marty McFly, the
DeLorean, and the Flux Capacitor, we’re gonna be talking about some real
life time travelers! Now, you may remember last year we did an episode called
“4 Cases of Time Travel.” – I do.
– Well, it turns out there are so many amazing cases and claims about time travel
that that’s not enough to cover it! So we did a little boopity-boop-boop-
badoop-boop-boop research and we got – some more for you.
– Lemme hit you with this…open cockpit – biplane pilot from 1935,
– Wow, that’s a mouthful. Sir Robert Victor Goddard, a pilot for the
British Royal Air Force. When you got “Sir” in front of your name and you say
you’ve traveled in time, listen. – Listen to that guy.
– ‘Cause that means he’s like a knight, right? He’s been knighted.
If you’re a “Sir,” right? Well, he was flying during the day,
and it was a round trip flight. – Yep, the best.
– And he’s going to Edinburgh and he looks down on his way and he sees the
abandoned airfield in Drem, Scotland. – You’ve heard of it.
– There it is, yeah. Everybody has. Nothing out of the ordinary here, you
know? Dilapidated tarmac, four hangars in disrepair, pastures with some cows… but
then, on his way back on the round trip, coming back through, he encounters some
problems. He enters a downward spiral, almost dies, okay? But then he recovers
and he finds himself flying in these strange yellow clouds,
and then the clouds– You sure they weren’t yellow puddles
on the inside of the cockpit? (chuckles) Could’ve been. And the clouds
part and he looks down and lo and behold, there is the same Drem Airfield
in Scotland, but now– – (dramatically) In the future!
– It’s totally operational and renovated. It looks good as new. There are four
planes down there painted yellow. Now, we all know that back then the RAF
planes were not painted yellow. – Oh yeah. Who would’ve thought of that?
– There was one monoplane down there which was unlike anything in the Royal Air
Force in 1935. The mechanics’ overalls… you know, they were all working and
bustling down there– they were all wearing blue overalls. You know they don’t
wear blue overalls back then! – This guy’s got good vision.
– They wear what? What color do they – wear back then, Rhett?
– I dunno. – (whispers) Brown.
– Brown! Brown! That’s right. Made it safely back,
tells his friends, they don’t believe him. And then, four years later, 1939, guess
what happened. They did reopen Drem Airfield, and what color did they
paint the training planes? – Yellow.
– Yellow! And they had one monoplane called “The Magister” just like the one he
witnessed, was added to the fleet. And the mechanics’ overalls were
changed to what color, Rhett? – Blue.
– Blue! Was he on the planning committee
for the new Air Force base? – (laughs)
– I mean, there’s a way to confirm that your prediction comes true, just be on
the board of directors. Do you know that – he wasn’t?
– I don’t know. – And maybe he just has insight–
– He was a “Sir.” into aviation fashion. I mean, I could
totally see that going from brown to blue. – He wrote a book!
– Seems innovative. In 1975, called “The Flight Towards
Reality.” That’s good enough for me. I’m gonna read that! Okay, so that’s
his story. I’ve got another story. – A little more recent.
– Top that. Andrew Basiago. This guy’s a lawyer with
five degrees. He’s also a writer and a member of Mensa. He also happens
to be the first child to teleport! – Okay.
– Through time. – Smart lawyer.
– Okay. This guy has gone on Coast to Coast AM, this AM radio
show that’s absolutely amazing. And they don’t just let
anyone on that show. – No, they don’t.
– (Rhett and crew laugh) And he’s told this entire story,
so these are some tidbits from the story. – Okay.
– So, he claims that back in 1968 when he was a boy, he was part of something called
“Project Pegasus,” which is a supposed classified exploration of time travel
and teleportation project sanctioned – by the US government.
– So they would send kids on time travel – excursions?
– Yeah! Yeah, because, you know, I guess the time machines are small.
You gotta put youngsters in there. 140 of ’em supposedly involved in this.
He claims, among a number of things, to have gone back to 1 million BC to
check out the dinosaurs, where he was almost eaten alive. Either he was
misquoted or… 1 million BC is not far enough for the dinosaurs. You gotta go–
remember, like 65 million years is when – they went extinct, so…
– Well, he was a kid. – Maybe he got his math mixed up.
– Maybe. He went to 2045 to pick up some microfilm.
That’s in the future. Can’t wait to see what that is! Microfilm. He’s also said
that he traveled back and forth to Mars as part of the military’s plan to
establish an American presence on the Red Planet, and, for one of those
trips, he was accompanied by none other than President Barack Obama, who, at
that time, was going by the name – “Barry Sotoro.”
– And going through puberty? I mean, what are these, middle
schoolers traveling around Mars? I think it said that Barack was a teenager
at the time, which 1968… doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me, but… okay,
anyway. As if that wasn’t believable, he says that because of his good
performance in these duties, – Okay.
– he was given the opportunity on November 19, 1863, to go back and see
Lincoln deliver the Gettysburg Address. And there’s photographic
evidence, everybody! – Bring it on!
– Here’s the photo. This is what Andrew says, quote, “I am the boy standing in
the center of the image looking to his right. My shoes were lost in the transit
through the Quantum Plenum that took me from the plasma confinement chamber.
A cobbler–” that’s a shoemaker, not a peach cobbler that you would enjoy–
“by the name of John Lawrence Burns furnished me with a pair of men’s street
shoes and a Union winter parka. In this image, you can see how oversized the shoes
were. When I walked over to this location and stood in this manner to detract
attention from my shoes–” This is how I always stand when I wanna detract
attention from my big shoes. – (Link laughs)
– (Rhett) I just kinda look to the right and point both of ’em
in the same direction. – (laughs)
– “Lincoln had not yet arrived and I only stood in this position for several minutes
before the quantum field effect produced by the plasma confinement chamber ended
and I found myself back in the Time Lab in New Jersey!” So he didn’t get to see the
Gettysburg Address! What a bummer! – But he got some sweet new kicks!
– Yeah he did. – (crew laughs)
– A little oversized, but you know, you can just stand sideways
and nobody’ll notice. – So the proof is right there!
– So, this is photographic evidence. – Proof is in the shoes.
– And this guy’s made quite a stir – on the radio circuit, Link!
– Has he, now? He has. So there’s that.
You got another one? Well, is there any other pictures of
the shoes? Because I’m really into that. Nope, but I could do, like,
a CSI zoom-in on ’em though. On November 2nd, in the year 2000, a user
by the name of “Timetravel_0” began a thread on the Time Travel Institute
Forum’s web site and claimed that he was – from the year 2036.
– Mmhm. And he was like, “I’ll answer
any questions you got.” – (laughs) Here I am at the forum.
– I’m a time traveler and here are my – office hours. Um, so–
– This is the place to go if you come back from the future, though.
The Time Travel Institute forums. – Right.
– I mean… don’t go to the press. Quickly, some of the things you gather
are: he was an American soldier from the year 2036 based in Hillsboro County,
Florida, and his name was John Titor. He started traveling in time as part of
an undercover secret government project where he had to return to the year 1975
and retrieve an IBM 5100 computer – Of course!
– and bring it back to 2036. But instead of just going back to the future, he
stopped in the year 2000 for, quote– Hold on. Why was he getting a computer
from 1975 to solve a problem in the future? To debug the Unix Year
2038 problem, which is– – Oh! Oh, okay. Continue.
– (Rhett and crew laugh) – It’s like Y2K but in 2038.
– Yeah, gotta have those 1975 computers. Instead of going back to the future, he
stopped in the year 2000 for, quote, – “some personal reasons.”
– That was a good year! As he’s answering all these questions in
the forum, he’s giving all types of details. You can read all this stuff.
It’s really fascinating. He explained time travel, he said he travels using a
Displacement Unit that was made by General Electric. He’s very forthright.
He scanned user manuals. – He had a brand integration in his story.
– (laughs) – GE!
– (both laugh) Yeah. And he showed pictures of equipment
and he had taken those photos with – Polaroid cameras.
– Yeah. He’s into retro stuff. – (laughs)
– He goes back to 1975, he only takes – Polaroids… I like this guy.
– So, the situation is, you know, if in 2036, this guy was in the military,
then, if you look at the range of time, – well, right now in 2015–
– He’s alive right now. ‘Cause they’re not gonna send, like, an 18-year-old
on this mission. Well, if they did, he could be about to be
born, or he could be in grade school. – No, Link, he’s alive.
– Most likely. You can’t be but at least 30 years old to
go on a mission like this, so 30 years old in 2036, he’s like 9 years old
right now. This is a 9-year-old! John! – And he’s going to be a time traveler.
– Well, we should have him on the show. – Right. Or his mom. Or both.
– Or both! You can both come. If you don’t travel by yourself,
come with your mom. I don’t care. Now, his mom went on Coast to Coast
and, speaking through a lawyer, because she actually wouldn’t talk, the lawyer
was trying to support her case of being John’s mother, and that didn’t really
amount to much. But I think we can get to the bottom of it, especially,
John, if you reach out to us. Bring your Polaroids, bring your mom, and
bring a 1975 computer. We’ve got a NASCAR – computer we can trade.
– John predicted that a world war in 2015 – would kill 3 billion people, so…
– Oh, there’s still some time left. There’s some other predictions I can
go through in Good Mythical More, but for now, I’m pretty excited
about the cases for time travel! – (laughs)
– Let us know what you think in the – comments.
– Thanks for liking and commenting and – subscribing.
– You know what time it is. – Hi, I’m Avery.
– Hi, I’m Shea. – Hi, I’m Sophie.
– Hi, I’m Liv. Hi, I’m Ava, and it’s my birthday. (all) And it’s time to spin the

[Ganondorf’s horse snarling] Epona was always a bit strange to me in Ocarina
of Time. I often found myself so focused on the main
quest at hand during my first play through that I didn’t really focus a whole lot on
some of the side aspects. Things like Epona or obtaining Biggoron’s
Sword were only things I were drawn into because I saw my older brother spending his time playing
fulfilling them. Epona wasn’t needed to complete the main
story, and although most players associate her with the mighty jump across the downed
bridge in Gerudo Valley, you can make it across with the longshot as well. So the whole obtaining Epona thing wasn’t
something I was immediately interested in. But as time went on and I began to explore
the world more and more, I became interested in something else. Rumors began to arise and tie themselves to
specific challenges and players were drawn back to the ranch. Because when you go to Lon Lon Ranch, you
actually have another choice besides Epona. And even with this horse, you’re capable
of challenging Ingo. Of course, try all you want, but you end up
losing the race. It isn’t until you get Epona that you can
finally defeat Ingo and take your prize. But for some of us that wasn’t enough. When we are presented with a challenge we
try our best to see it out to the very end. And thus, here we are. Gathered here today to talk about how we once
thought beating Ingo with a plain horse was part of something bigger… A way to unlock Ganondorf’s black horse
by altering the timeline. Deep dives into video games are something I look
forward to doing for a long time. And the reason why I’m able to continue
doing this, especially given how YouTube is constantly changing and new policies are affecting
creators, is through the support of generous sponsors. So today we’re taking off from our ground-based
horses to the air with the brand new MMORPG: Heroes and Titans 2: Era of Legends. Heroes and Titans 2: Era of Legends is a free-to-play
fantasy MMORPG for PC that features a vast world full of magical beasts that players
can capture and then use to fight and buff their allies in battle. There’s massive PVP arenas, epic raids,
and intricate storyline quests. Players are also capable of finding a variety
of mounts – from flying around on dragons to even giant robots. Pick from 8 different robust classes depending
on your play style – and utilize your skills against difficult foes in Player vs Monster
battles within dungeons or 30-player Raids. Or, take your talent to the Player vs Player
arena for 5 vs 5 or 3 vs 3 brawls, and play a game of capture the flag while you’re
there. So, if you’re looking to embark on a brand
new adventure, head over to the link in the description below and use my special code
“swankybox” to get a lot of awesome starter goodies. From a High Tech Rocket mount, to free dungeon
scrolls and various other items used to upgrade and tame magical beasts. And I want to thank Heroes and Titans 2: Era
of Legends for sponsoring this video and supporting me as a creator. So the idea of absurdly hard, senseless challenges
isn’t new to Zelda fans. I mean, the running man exists after all. That was the peak of ridiculousness that we’ll
cover another day. So given that we’re playing a game where
our actions in the past affect the future, we’re planted with the idea to always think
about cause and effect. The world of Ocarina of Time was rewarding
when it came to exploration and experimentation, so it totally made sense to try lots of things. And even though some of us eventually knew
that we could unlock Epona, we were still presented with a what if scenario. Because turning back the clock, when I was
watching my brother play, I would often try to take in as much Zelda as I could. We’d split up our play sessions between
us siblings but we generally would always watch the others play. But during these times I would often read
the instruction manual that came with the game, and I think that’s where these delusions
began. So on page 38 of the Ocarina of Time instruction
booklet, you have a section simply labeled as “Ride a Horse”. It went as follows: Quote: “Traveling by
foot in Hyrule can take a long time. It’s a good idea to use a horse. Horses can be found at Lon Lon Ranch. With a horse, you’ll be able to cross the
Hyrulian plains in no time. Although you can only ride the horse at certain
places, it will always be waiting for you if you need to go somewhere. You must do something special before you can
ride the horse, and you can only ride it when Link is an adult.” End quote. It goes on for another sentence to talk about
carrots, but this page alone made me think that choosing a horse to use was up to your
discretion. The way it talks about horses and how it vaguely
keeps the label at just “horse” – and not Epona, certainly made me think so. I mean, everything else is fully explained
in this instruction book – from every piece of equipment you get on your journey, to the
time traveling characteristics between being a child and adult, to even certain enemies
and names you’ll encounter. The vagueness of the label of just “horse”
makes it seem like you can choose any, or that any one particular horse isn’t too
important. Obviously we are introduced to Epona when
we are still a child, but the fact that we can race Ingo with a horse that isn’t Epona
still fed into this belief. But the fact that this task felt impossible
due to the horse stalling out always left us feeling like we weren’t really good enough. Or perhaps we did something wrong. In other games, when we had to lose to a boss,
or fail a task to progress a story – we at least got satisfaction afterwords. But Ingo just pokes fun at us for looking
mad and offers us a chance at another race. So you bet 50 more rupies and saddle up again. Because you had to pay to lose, it made it
feel like it was your fault for losing. Obviously when we come back with Epona things
certainly change. We smoke Ingo and jump out of the ranch to
freedom. Mind you, looking back at it now, this fall
should have broken your horses legs outright… I mean, that’s like thirty or forty feet. Yikes. Anyways, one of the main reasons I pushed
on in this unfair race was because of the wide variety of horses we encounter in the
game. From Ganondorf’s massive black stallion,
to Zelda’s white one, to technically the brown one we could ride in Lon Lon Ranch. It would have been absolutely awesome to be
able to unlock these horses and use them in the world. And of course, the rumors surrounding absurd
challenges in the game didn’t help. There was always something to seek out and
discover. Each task part of a bigger puzzle. And it was often the impossible tasks that
sucked the most. Not being able to beat the running man, or
failing to beat Ingo meant you couldn’t write off that it was a ruse. And that’s when rumors began to circulate
around actually beating Ingo. I’m not sure if something like this existed
world-wide or if it was just a local wild goose chase, but the concept was this: Within
the game, Ingo is planning on giving away Epona to Ganondorf as a gift. Now, this all changes because we get to keep
whatever horse we win the race with. And by default we can only win with Epona. So, the story progresses with us winning Epona. But, hypothetically, if we were to win with
a different horse – technically we should be gifted that horse instead of Epona. So the rumor was that if actually beat Ingo
with a plain horse, this plain horse became your actual horse for the game. Ingo then gave Epona to Ganondorf like the
game had explained in the in-game dialogue, and because he now had Epona to ride, he would
then leave his horse at the ranch. Given that Ganondorf has influence over the
ranch, this sounded extremely possible. If he’s riding his new horse Epona, why
not shelter his existing horse at the ranch right outside of his giant castle? And this created the situation in which you
could then obtain Ganodorf’s horse that was currently residing in the ranch. A horse that basically had infinite carrots. Now obviously, fast forwarding two decades
later and we know this isn’t the case. Ingo cannot be beaten through normal means,
and even if you beat him through cheating, the story still plays out as if you beat him
with Epona. After the race you’ll still be riding the
horse you won on, but immediately upon exiting the ranch you’ll be swapped out to be on
top of Epona. Some speed runners skip this entire race all
together and simply glitch their way over the side of the ranch, which triggers the
Epona escape cutscene regardless if you did the race or not. But one thing I do find interesting, is that
although it was never doable on the Nintendo 64 version of the game, someone did figure
out a way to beat Ingo on the 3DS version with a normal horse… And it’s actually quite clever. Instead of racing head to head with Ingo,
they pause halfway through the race and wait for him to get way ahead. Due to how the 3DS processes objects in the
distance, Ingo actually gets unloaded when he gets super far away from you, thus when
he moves over the finish line, it doesn’t register that he crossed it. So you can then speed up and clear both races
using this same methodology to actually defeat Ingo without using any cheats. Sure it’s a system limitation exploit, but
it’s pretty darn genius. Upon winning, the same thing happens though. He talks as if you are on Epona, and in the
end, you win Epona instead of the horse you are on. I tried my own variant of this on the Nintendo
64 version of Ocarina of Time by cheating, but unfortunately it was to no avail. I thought I’d be clever and try to unload
Ingo’s horse from the race so that he would stall out at the starting line, but that didn’t
work at all because we both have the same horse. Removing the object from the game’s memory
made both of us just float in place without any way to move. Curses… Foiled again. Since that didn’t work, I figured I’d
try unloading the gate to the actual ranch and race him on the inside of the fence, thus
cutting down on the circumference of my entire race track – but that doesn’t work either
since the checkpoints for the race are only on the path that’s outside of the center
area. Of course, even if these things did work,
they’d just end up as the same result as before. We’d beat Ingo, but Epona would be given
to us as a reward instead. So although the quest for Ganondorf’s Gerudo
Stallion ended up being a bust, it was sort of liberating to hear that someone did end
up clearing the challenge on a normal horse years later. It truly would have been awesome to have been
prancing around on Ganondorf’s horse as a way to rub in your victory. Although I guess I’ll have to settle for
wrangling that giant one in Breath of the Wild. As a last quick note, it is possible to spawn
various horses through modifying the game’s code, like Ganondorf’s and Zelda’s, but
generally a lot of these horses are just cutscene animations so when spawned they just continually
run in place. Regardless of what you do, you can’t interact
with them or climb them. They have collision like a normal horse, but
nothing can be done. However, a few years back I knew an awesome
modder called airikitascave had been working on making obtaining Ganondorf’s horse a
reality, which is where some of the footage from this video came from. I reached out and they were super helpful
with obtaining the “what if” scenario footage for this video. So in some ways it was neat to see Link finally
riding through Lon Lon Ranch upon the mysterious legend that I had hunted for quite a while. Some people may argue that Ganondorf’s horse
actually perished in the adult timeline, possibly becoming part of the vessel that was Phantom
Ganon – but I like to believe it’s still out there somewhere. But, with that, did you ever try to beat Ingo
on a normal horse yourself? Any rumors circulating around Ganondorf’s
horse? Share your story in the comments below. And with that… Thanks for watching guys and gals – and until
my next video, cheers!
Once upon a time in a land far away since the beginning of time the mighty Deku Tree served as the guardian spirit of the Kokiri, the children of the forest. Each Kokiri gets a fairy from the tree. Except for a boy named Link. As his emissaries they protect the pure hearted. Except Link. But fate chose one to break the rules of the past. Oh, a tasty nut! Wait a second! There’s a bottle! I don’t fall for this! (Damnit!) Once again saved by my sublime intelligence! Navi! Navi, where are you? Right in front of you, Great Deku Tree. Oh! I can’t see with these bushy eyebrows. There you are! That’s better. And now fly, Navi! Fly! The fate of whole Hyrule lies in the hands of this boy! Hnng! My dangly bits! Holy great fairy! Link? Link? Liiink?! Ah! What the…?! My house! The mortgage! (Hey Link, I heard the Deku Tree called for you and…) I’m sooo sorry! I came here to accompany you on your journey to- Hold up! You’re my fairy? Err … yes? Cool! After all this time! Hey man, you won’t believe this! Hey! I’ve got a fairy now! ‘kay Look! I finally got a fairy myself! Perfect! You can target me with her. As if! Hello shopkeeper, I- oh… Hey boulder! When you come back here, I’ll- Deku Tree, I got a fairy now! And for unknown reasons also found a sword and a shield. Very good. Then you can slay the monster inside of me. Sure! By the way that’s a neat double moustache. Thanks. I have a feeling that this wasn’t the last mouth we are going to enter. Ahhh! I’m on fire! I suggest we leave the village as fast as possible. Uh huh. Do you really want to leave? Oh cool, an ocarina!
Sorrow is no stranger to Zelda stories. Casting shadows over all of the exploration,
puzzle solving, monster battles and rescue missions, loom big clouds of sadness that
over the course of the series has been the Zelda ingredient the writers have been slowly
directing our attention to the most. Sorrow is being written like a disease – a
virus infecting the happiness of each story world and Link, the hero of these stories,
assumes the role of the healer – burdened with flushing out the virus and restoring
healthy emotional balances to each one. More often than not, it’s the supporting characters
that carry this sorrow disease and their dialogue is constantly connecting these 2 themes of
healing and sadness together, asking Link to heal their sorrows and ease their
Regrets. Titles like Majora’s Mask and Twilight Princess
go so far as to position these themes of sadness and regret into the opening dialogue, while
Wind Waker and Breath Of The Wild throw Link into broken worlds already operating in the
aftermath of destruction, easing the regrets of the characters as they awaken to fulfill
their destiny. Oracle of Ages and Seasons use flames of Sorrow
and Despair as the villain’s dominant threat upon the world, but what’s important is
that all of this sorrowful dialogue is unavoidable – necessary rites of passage for story progression
and all Zelda stories carry that Zelda Sorrow Language like this. Except one. (Mood shift) Ocarina Of Time is often overlooked when it comes to discussing which
Zelda story is the saddest and this might be because Ocarina director Shigeru Miyamoto
and script director Toru Osawa don’t use that the Zelda Sorrow Language like its successors. Those recurring themes of sorrow, regret,
sadness, and even healing appear nowhere in any corner of the script. Instead,
Osawa sprinkles throughout the character dialogue this kind of off-center cryptic poetic language. Themes like:
-The clear waters surface reflects growth -Melodies that draw you into infinite darkness
-memories of younger days -the flow of time is always cruel
-being consumed by greed -childish minds turn to noble ambition In the past, these themes have been discussed
as standalone sentences, called upon in singular form to assist theories or arguments generated
among the Zelda community. But tracking this language back through Ocarina’s
entire script, begins to reveal a few continuous thematic threads that when isolated, actually
form the skeletons of not only one but two narratively complete stories of sorrow. With the bones of these 2 threads now in mind,
small details that add to the muscle of these stories begin to pop out. Miyamoto and Osawa have used everything in
the Ocarina toolbox – dialogue, locations, characters, nature, events, architecture,
mechanics and sound design – to hide away subtle clues that all point back to these
2 sorrow threads. Instead of casting obvious clouds of sadness
above the adventure through such direct sorrowful dialogue, the creative team have buried sadness
down in the subtext of the story and as we begin to uncover all of the hidden details,
it becomes clear that Ocarina Of Time is, without a doubt, the saddest Zelda story no one noticed. In order to make sense of Miyamoto and Osawa’s
2 sorrow threads, we first need to take a look at the beats that construct Ocarina Of
Time’s main adventure, and the story opens on The Great Deku Tree sending Navi the fairy
to summon Link for a meeting. Sword and shield in hand, Link is warned by
The Deku Tree of an evil spreading across the land of Hyrule and is sent to gather the
3 spiritual stones before Ganondorf does. One inside the tree, one in a cave and one
in the belly of a giant fish. Using the 3 stones and the Ocarina Of Time
given to him by Princess Zelda, Link accidently leads Ganondorf into the sacred realm and
subsequently, to the triforce, granting him one evil wish – govern Hyrule. Link sleeps for 7 years and wakes as an adult
to discover the once healthy Hyrule is now Dark Hyrule and is sent on a new quest to
destroy the curses now skulking inside Hyrule’s 5 temples. Through tackling this evil, all 5 sages are
awakened – Link’s once childhood friends now transcended to the position of Guardian
over each realm of Hyrule – forest, mountain, lake, underworld, desert. With their help, Link takes down Ganondorf
and saves Zelda and after succeeding, is sent back in time before Ganondorf hatches his
plan. This top adventure line is the face of Ocarina
and is essentially the blurb on the back of the box, complete with deadly dungeons, weapons
of great power, and time travel. So where do these 2 sorrow threads come into play? Well, they Actually begin where the entire
Ocarina narrative begins in that harrowing scene I showed in the prologue, the death of The Great Deku Tree. This scene with the Deku Tree’s death is
by far the most dense in its layered symbolism in that its meaning translates differently
depending on which 1 of Osawa’s 3 threads is being followed. On the adventure line, his death is used as
the vehicle to establish Link’s motivation – a curse spreads across Hyrule and Link witnesses
the effects first hand in the Deku Tree’s death… Off Link goes. But the first sorrow thread though specifically
requires attention paid not to why the Deku Tree died but how. Emphasis is placed heavily on the importance
of life and natural balance across Ocarina Of Time. Before his death, the Deku Tree recounts to
Link Hyrule’s creation story in detail. Three goddesses, each with their own divine
spirit of power, wisdom and courage, cultivate the land, the law, and life to uphold that
law in Hyrule. With this creation story embedded in the DNA
of Ocarina’s larger narrative, the land Of Hyrule is inaugurated not just
as a blank world serving Link’s exploration, but as a living breathing organism – almost
sentient with different moods, weather conditions and sleeping patterns. Following the creation story, the Deku Tree
goes on to speak of a wicked man of the desert who was the one to cast the death curse on
the tree and it’s here in the tension of Hyrule’s natural balance and the death curse
that Osawa’s 1st thread begins to take shape. While the characters in other Zelda stories
are the direct victims of the series’ sorrow disease, in Ocarina it is Hyrule’s nature
that has been afflicted by Ganondorf’s curse. Link is restoring a natural order tipped off-balance
and this quest for purification echoes the ethics found in the japanese home-grown religion
of Shintoism. That’s Miyamoto at the Fushimi Inari Shrine
in Southern Kyoto in Japan – Miyamoto and Osawa’s childhood hometown. While the direct influence of this Shinto
shrine can be found in Miyamoto’s Starfox series, the broader spirit of the Shinto faith
is embedded on a larger scale across his entire gameography, none more so than the Zelda series
which are always stories reverberating off the needs and rhythm of nature. Yet, no Zelda story is quite as distilled
in its use of Shintoist ethics than Ocarina Of Time and this is the first sorrow thread
– The Shinto Line. SHINTO LINE
A great love and respect for nature is the defining foundation of the Shinto religion. The minutiae of a moral compass is replaced
with harvesting a desire to remain in touch with Kami – the spiritual energy of a particular
place or a member of nature. The name Kami can be translated to ‘Gods’
or ‘Nature Spirits’ while the name Shinto literally translates to The Way Of The Gods. The fox Miyamoto addresses at the Fushimi
Inari shrine is considered a messenger of the Inari god – ‘Inari’ being the name
of the mountain the shrine sits at the base of – believed to host the god of rice, fertility
and industry. Purification is a key aspect of all ritual
activity in Shinto and it exists to reestablish order and balance between nature, humans,
and deities. Purification rituals counteract the threat
of pollution, which is considered an obstruction to the flow of life and blessing from the
kami. The anthropomorphisation or physical representation
of Kami spirits in fiction isn’t uncommon and the best visual example might be from
Studio Ghibli’s Princess Mononoke – a film that borrows heavily from Shintoist artifacts. The biggest examples being the lives of the
boars, wolves, the Kodama, who represent the spirits of individual trees, and The Forest
Spirit, a symbol of harmony who embodies the larger Kami of the entire forest. In Mononoke, San and Ashitaka are seen as
the saviors in a world that has forgot about Kami, rhythm, nature, and consequently, ultimate
importance. Miyamoto and Osawa’s work in Ocarina Of
Time also borrow from the same shintoist framework. Different villages with their own unique races
occupy different areas of Hyrule and each race is bound elementally to their own section
of nature. Gorons to mountain and fire, Zoras to water
and Kokiri to forest. These rural kami-like races dedicate their
worship towards the greater nature spirits – the Great Deku Tree, in which, similarly
to the Forest Spirit in Mononoke, embodies the Kami of Kokiri Forest, and Lord Jabu Jabu,
the patron deity of the Zora race, thought to embody the divine spirit and protector
of the Zora ancestral lands, always sitting in some sort of altar. Jabu only grants entry when presented with
a fish offering and this concept of offering food like rice and fish is taken directly
from Shintoist practices. The beta version of this scene shows a pedestal
with an Ocarina engraved on top, suggesting that music was originally required to open
Jabu-Jabu’s mouth and this references a Shintoist ritual practice called Kagura, aka
‘god-entertainment’, which is used during festivals to appease kami spirits. In fact, music in Ocarina is the direct replacement
for these Shintoist rituals. Saria explains that music can be used to speak
to the spirits of the forest and moments exist when music and dance are used to bring happiness
to those elementally-bound occupants across Hyrule. In Ocarina, music calls down rain, splits
waterfalls, summons the sun and moon, and calls a horse to Link’s side – music here
plays the role of connecting Link directly to the rhythm of Hyrule’s nature. But Osawa and Miyamoto also achieve this connection
through other subtle design elements. The 3 dungeons Link must explore first during
his childhood phase are all environments crafted directly from the greater nature deities:
Inside the Deku Tree, Inside Jabu-Jabu’s belly, and inside Dodongo’s cavern, which
upon closer inspection is actually built from the remains of an old dinosaur with skulls
and ribcages etc. Link then purifies each dungeon – ridding
them of the infestations placed there by Ganondorf and is rewarded with one of the 3 spiritual
stones – symbols of that section of nature he’s purified – forest, mountain, water. These elemental stones are then used to open
the Door Of Time, and the sacred act of opening the sanctuary door during Shinto ceremonies
is also recreated here – music once again used to replace the concept of ritual to open
the door to the sacred realm and access to the gods. (beat) Link’s childhood phase is dedicated predominately
to connecting him with the idea of what a healthy Hyrule looks like and Osawa and Miyamoto
place such a strong emphasis on this to allow for the tragedy of what happens next hit harder. (mood shift) Shintoism largely died in the post-World War
2 era. In the aftermath of the war, most Japanese
came to believe that the hubris of Empire had led to their downfall. Lust for territory blinded their leaders to
the importance of their homeland. We see this theme of territorial conquest
playing out through both villains in Ocarina and Mononoke, Ganondorf and Lady Eboshi – whose
objectives are on the domination of the world rather than seeking to establish harmony. Eboshi plans to kill the forest spirit in
order to stop the spread of nature, making it easier for her town to conquer and prosper
in the iron-rich grounds of the area. Ganondorf, in his quest of greed to gain complete
mastery of the world, places curses upon all of Hyrule’s nature Deities and with Kami
now disregarded, nature retaliates. Kami spirits are of two minds. They can nurture and love when respected,
or they can bring destruction and disharmony when disregarded. And so while manifesting into only smaller
monsters during Link’s childhood phase with Parasitic spiders in the Deku Tree, dinosaur
infestations in the cave and electric leech-like anemone’s in Jabu Jabu’s belly, when Link
wakes after that 7 years, the effects of the curse now affect Dark Hyrule at large. Lake Hylia has been drained, Death Mountain
suffers from endless eruption, monsters cover the floor of Kokiri Forest, dark spirits are
set loose in Kakariko Village and Ganondorf’s minions gather in the desert. Shintoism also believes that upon death, souls
with unsettled disputes in life become ghosts – and so the appearance of big Poe ghosts
across Hyrule, spirits of concentrated hatred, are now an occurrence. Instead of dungeons crafted from Hyrule’s
nature, The dungeons Link must purify as an adult now have man-made qualities to their
architecture, echoing the sentiment that the world Link now occupies is built on the strength
of man instead of natural balance. At the lake bottom there is
a Water Temple used to worship the water spirits (beat) And so the Shinto Line is really a story about
the battle over the nature of Hyrule and Link is the cure – purifying the world with his
music and weapons of great power. After destroying the manifestations of the
curse in each temple, Hyrule physically begins a process of healing and the new awakened
sages reward Link with elemental medallions: Light, forest, fire, water, shadow, and spirit. With the forest now purified, a Deku Sprout
shoots up to one day grow and become the new Deku Tree. The volcano is calmed, the ice melts in Zora’s
domain, the lake refills with clear water, and the infinite darkness is destroyed in
the underworld. An element of the Shinto creation Myth is
the existence of a land of the dead called Yomi – an evil realm where the dead reside. The spirits living in Yomi are malicious and
lonely, and try to drag people down from the land of the living. At the very end, Ganondorf’s castle – the
beacon of Hyrule’s pollution – crumbles and the light sage calls upon the gods to
open the sealed door and send Ganondorf into the void of Evil Realm. Ganondorf is sent to Yomi. (beat) Conclusion: (slower and more thoughtful pace
i guess) And so Miyamoto and Osawa’s first sorrow
thread is in essence, a message about nature and the importance of striking a harmony with
it. Greed and hatred are a pollution to this natural
balance and if we do not respect it, nature will surely retaliate. Who knows what might happen to those who are
consumed by greed? SATCH END
(Mood shift) Osawa’s 3rd and final thread might be the
most important and requires attention paid to these last pieces of poetic dialogue – newborn’s
life, growth, childish minds, memories of younger days etc. These kinds of references to age and growth
are nowhere to be found in other Zelda stories but Link’s age is the focus of about 90%
of all the characters in Ocarina Of Time. Before Link enters the Sacred Realm to sleep
for that 7 years, the supporting characters make sure Link knows exactly how little the
world expects of him. Just a kid, just a little kid, fairy boy,
forest boy, kid, kid, kid, sonny, kid, fairy boy, boy, lad, son, kid, boy, kid, kid, boy,
forest boy, fairy boy, son, little kid, and kid. Seeing Link for the child that he is is a
relatively fair assessment and these references to his disposition would render unimportant
if it weren’t for the equally ferocious obsession the characters have with the idea
of Manhood. Becoming a ‘man’ is an ideology the characters,
including Link’s childhood friends, seem to consider as the highest level of honour. There’s talk of being a real man, not being
a real man without a fairy, Darunia wanting Link to prove he is a real man, Princess Ruto
telling Link he has been a terrible man to keep her waiting, and Nabooru wishing she
had kept her promise all those years ago after seeing how handsome Link had become as a man. The third thread for Link is an inward journey. It is Osawa’s exploration of the transition
from childhood to adulthood and just like the real world, it is both awkward and tragic. It’s the growing up line. GROWING UP LINE If threads one and two are about why and how
the Deku Tree died, then finding a foothold in the Growing Up Line requires an examination
into who the Deku Tree is. The children of Kokiri Forest describe The
Deku Tree as not only the guardian of the entire forest, but also their Father – claiming
that he was the one to give life to the Kokiri race as well as everything in the forest. The name KOKIRI, when translated from japanese
Kanji to English, echoes this sentiment with Ko meaning kid or child and Ki meaning tree. So here we have ‘children of the tree’
which not only aligns with themes explored on the Shinto Line, but gives the entire Forest
a childlike attitude. The layout of the forest is a playground with
ladders, ramps, treehouses, secret crawling holes and mazes. Similar to Neverland from the Peter Pan stories,
Kokiri Forest exists as this insular magical realm separate from the real world. Children never grow up here and each child
is allied with a fairy companion – the mark of a true Kokiri – and the story begins with
the Deku Tree sending Link his very first fairy companion, Navi. And so Kokiri Forest is the physical representation
of Link’s childhood and THIS is the foothold for the growing up line. Though as carefree as it appears, Kokiri Forest
isn’t without sadness. Humans name Kokiri Forest the Forbidden Forest
and some children explain that those who enter from the outside without a fairy transform
into Stalfos – those skeleton monsters Link faces in future temples. We see this happen later when a man enters
the forest and falls asleep against this stump only to vanish later – leaving a Kokiri girl
to explain that he’s now lost to the woods. Everybody, Stalfos. That guy isn’t here anymore. Anybody who comes into the
forest will be lost. Everybody will become a Stalfos. Everybody, Stalfos. So, he’s not here anymore. Only his saw is left. Hee hee. But children cannot leave either. The Great Deku Tree said that if a Kokiri
leaves the woods, he or she will die. You’re not allowed to leave the
forest! The Great Deku Tree said that if
a Kokiri leaves the woods, he or she will die! And so with no one entering as an outsider
and no one leaving as a child of the tree, we have this protective bubble around what
stands to be childhood and some of The Deku Tree’s dialogue aligns with this idea stating
that as the source of life, Kokiri Forest stands as a barrier – deterring outsiders
and maintaining order of the world – there is a purity and innocence being protected
here. But this protective bubble begins to collapse
when the father is killed. In the wake of the Deku Tree’s death, Link
is forced to exit Kokiri Forest – prematurely thrust into a world of adult responsibility. Ganondorf’s greed has ripped childhood out
from underneath Link. The Deku Sprout reveals later that Link is
actually an outsider, brought by his mother to the Deku Tree years ago seeking protection
during the great war. So Link is an outsider with a Kokiri fairy
and with this dual citizenship, can travel to and fro between childhood and the adult
world, yet not belonging to either one. Even on the outside, Link still sees the world
through the eyes of a child and Miyamoto and Osawa keep the design playful during this
entire childhood phase. The castle market is full of life with dancing
couples, dogs and playing children. The dungeons are full of magic and mystery,
Link is peeking through windows, climbing vines and playing hide and seek with castle
guards. But things turn grim after Link passes through
the appropriately named Door Of Time and plucks the Master Sword from
the pedestal. Now in an adult body in an adult world, the
bleakness of adulthood and responsibility comes at Link with everything it has – the
first reveal, the old marketplace, once bustling with colour, now cold and desolate, and its
in this moment that Osawa establishes Link and Ganondorf, who on the adventure line represent
the opposing forces of good and evil and nature vs man on the shinto line, into their designed
role of childhood vs adulthood. Ganondorf represents everything Link isn’t
and Osawa uses this storytelling device to attack the only thing Link is holding onto:
his relationships. As Link gains back ground from Ganondorf in
his purification quest on the Shinto Line, on the growing up line a slow subtraction
begins to take place. The more Hyrule gains, the more Link loses. Saria, Darunia, Ruto, Impa and Nabooru, all
friends from Link’s past eventually leave him behind. A clip of Miyamoto and Zelda producer Eiji
Aonuma mention in an interview the importance of Link leaving the 4 girls from his childhood
behind. Link must lose everything to save the world. This plays heavily on the “everything has
to come from somewhere” natural balance of Shintoism. You don’t just get wood, you have to chop
down a tree. You can wash away corruption but it has to
go somewhere. In this case, the corruption is lifted off
the nature of Hyrule and onto Link himself. This is his designed role in nature. But we’re not done yet! While each sage’s relevance stems from their
race and elemental essence on the Shinto Line, on the Growing Up line, Osawa has infused
these characters with characteristics and dialogue symbolic of milestones one must navigate
during adolescence – friendship, family, romance, loyalty, and sex. Saria’s dialogue dedicated predominately
to friendship, Darunia to sworn brotherhood and family after Link saves the starving goron
race, Ruto’s character obsessed with love and marriage, Princess Zelda’s loyal bodyguard,
Impa, solely focused on Zelda’s safety, asks Link to protect Zelda in her stead, and
Nabooru, whose dialogue suggests sexual activity and comments on how handsome Link has become
as a man. And so those medallions Link collects are
also emblems of Link’s adult achievements and Link’s childhood guide, the Owl, closes
this chapter off congratulating Link on fully maturing as an adult. Childish minds turn to noble ambition. But at this point, Link has lost everything
and everyone except now as officially a man and with his childhood essence still attached
to his back, can now enter Ganondorf’s castle to kick off the final chapter and the final
fight – childhood vs adulthood. Ocarina Of Time’s code disables the ability
to defeat Ganondorf with any weapon other than the Master Sword. The growing up line requires a poetic close
to this final chapter and so it must be the the master sword, aka the essence of childhood,
which delivers the final blow to adulthood. After defeating Ganondorf and ultimately,
avenging the Deku Tree and the Forest, Zelda sends Link back in time to his childhood version. But the greatest tragedy is yet to come
With the master sword back in the pedestal, the essence of childhood now falls to Link’s
fairy companion, Navi, who remains Link’s key back into Kokiri Forest where he can live
out the rest of his childhood. But with no explanation, Osawa writes Navi
out of the story and the very last shot is Navi leaving Link behind. Link’s last connection to his childhood
is severed and if he was to return, would become a Stalfos like the man against the
stump. He is forever banished from his childhood. This Stalfos character from Twilight Princess,
aka the Hero’s Shade who speaks of easing his regrets is confirmed by the creators to
be the this Link from Ocarina Of Time. And so Miyamoto and Osawa’s 3rd thread of
sorrow is one that comes full circle. The Growing Up Line is a losing story and
though the purified world of Hyrule lives on, Link pays the ultimate price and falls
victim to what he’s really been fighting against from the beginning: the cruel flow
of Time. Time is the true villain of the story and
this kind of message about losing childhood mirrors Miyamoto’s personal ethos when it
comes to designing his games: I think that inside every adult is the heart
of a child. We just gradually convince ourselves that
we have to act more like adults. Ultimately, Ocarina Of Time is a story about
transformation and the inevitable sorrow that comes attached with it. While other Zelda stories allow the audience
to consider sorrow and despair through more direct means, Ocarina creates an indirect
sorrowful atmosphere by establishing, but then removing a world of happiness. On each line, Link loses something in the
death of The Great Deku tree: a mentor, a protector, and a father, and this gives way
to 3 types of transformation: transformation of Link as a person, transformation of the
people around him, and transformation of the world he inhabits. But its actually in Ganondorf that we find
Miyamoto and Osawa’s greatest storytelling weapon. Appropriately named King Of Theives, each
line explores the 3 things Ganondorf has stolen – The triforce, the health of Hyrule’s nature,
and what what might be the his greatest crime of all time, Link’s childhood. While that Zelda Sorrow Language may not appear
in Ocarina Of Time’s script, Link is healing sorrows and easing regrets on scales far larger
than its successors. In the end, Link is changed forever – a saviour
banished from his childhood destined to roam alone in a world that doesn’t remember him
– and all of this buried down in the subtext beneath the heroic adventures of the main
story. Ocarina Of Time is the saddest Zelda story
no one noticed.
– Which celebrity has junk in
the trunk and in their mouth? – Let’s talk about that. (groovy electronic music) Good Mythical Summer? – Hey, if you haven’t already seen it, I’m in a new show on Mythical
Society called How Long Can I where we see how long we can
do some incredibly dumb things. The show premiered yesterday so make sure to join Mythical Society
and watch it, won’t you? – Celebrities are just like us. They love eating junk food. – The only difference is
when Jennifer Lawrence eats McDonald’s, she has
an Academy Award at home and when I do it, I’m usually crying. Not because I think McDonald’s is sad, just because I’m usually always crying. (Jordan chuckles) Today we’ll be guessing
celebrities’ favorite junk food. It’s time for– – [Jordan and Emily] Let’s
Risk Our YouTube Integrity By Matching the Junk Food
to the Famous Celebrity. – Here’s how it works:
we’ll get to try junk food that a celebrity has
explicitly said that they love. We’ll use one of these 10 masks and guess which celebrity
said they love it. As an added bonus, every celebrity here is someone we do perfect impressions of. – Mm-hmm. – The 10 masks are as follows: Jimmy Fallon. – Kim Kardashian! – Gisele Bundchen. – Nick Jonas. – Russell Brand, mate. – Taylor Swift. – Madonner. – (chuckles) Martha Stewart. – John Cena. (chuckles) – Channing Tatum. (laughs) – Martha Stewart, John
Cena, and Channing Tatum all sound like wealthy British dowagers. – (laughs) They’re all Maggie Smith. – The loser has to sit their junk in junk for all of More, let’s play. Round one, Dunkin’ Munchkins. – You eat one?
– You know, I actually don’t love Dunkin’ Donuts and I know saying that
publicly has ensured that I am gonna get killed
by a guy in a Celtics jersey. (laughs) I’m gonna be hit, my
face slammed into a curb. – Well I’ll eat this one for you. – Thank you.
– I love the chocolate cake ones, they’re
the really good ones. – I mean I see Dunkin’ Donuts
as an east coast thing. Who are you guessing? Kim. I think Gisele is married to
an east coast football man. I don’t know that for sure. I’m not a football fan myself. – You’re not a fan of much today, are ya? – No yeah, I don’t know any celebrities because no one was in a
punk band in the ’90s. Why are there not more
members of Rancid up here? – Yeah. (laughs) – Is this what my voice
was like the first time? – Mine was screaming! I didn’t mean to do it like that. It’s like a really back
of the nose type thing with the Kardashians that
it doesn’t sound real or natural to me but
you know, I’m not them. – Actually might be–
– I need your final guesses. – Yes ma’am. – [Stevie] You wanna know the answer? – Yes please. – [Stevie] These Dunkin’ Donut Munchkins are Gisele Bundchen’s–
– Hey! – Dang!
– She told Wall Street Journal that that quote, “They’re so tiny. “It’s a guilty pleasure.” – I actually did not hate, I
thought that was pretty good. That was the best bite of Dunkin’ Donuts– – You got a little right here.
– Thanks Mom. (chuckles) – [Emily] Round two,
sriracha flavored popcorn. – How do you feel about
sriracha just as a condiment? – [Emily] Love it, put it on everything. – Maybe it’s a little
overused in food these days. I feel like I like it on Thai
food or Vietnamese food but– – Yeah my stomach lining is lit. – Yeah sure.
– But woo, this does have a little bit of a kick. I don’t know, I think I’m gonna go with Taylor Swiftie on this one. – I think that’s a good call. I think whoever likes
this is kind of a foodie. I thinks sriracha is
kind of a foodie trend. That’s why I think I’m
gonna go Martha Stewart. – Oh, really?
– Yes, I love this sriracha popcorn. Is this what I talked
like in the first segment? – (laughs) I like cats. All right. – Do you like Taylor Swift’s new cat? – She has a new cat? – Yeah, semi-recent cat anyway. – Oh man, I can’t keep up.
– It’s great. – [Emily] Kitty! – [Stevie] Okay this is
the favorite junk food of Nick Jonas. – Ah.
– Oh. – [Stevie] He told US
Weekly that he loves it but he won’t eat it
until the movie starts. No eating during previews. – That’s a weird rule. – No, everybody knows you
pound all of your stuff right before the movie starts
and then hate yourself– – Yes so you have–
– Throughout the rest of the movie.
– A stomach ache for all three and a half hours of Avengers. – Yes, that’s what you do. – Round three, Fig Newton ice cream. We’ve been told that this
celebrity said they like to break up the Fig
Newton as they eat a scoop of vanilla ice cream and we’ve gone ahead and broken them up in the
ice cream ahead of time. This is brilliant by the way.
– Yeah. – Whoever did this is kind of a genius. I love it when stuff I like is smashed into other stuff I like. – It does sound delicious.
– I am super into that. I would love to smash
other cookies I enjoy in vanilla ice cream, I think that would– – You wanna smash them? – Are you suggesting I wanna
have sex with the cookies? Is that what you were saying? – I might be. – I’m not that lonely yet. (Emily laughs) It’s comin’ though. – Oh. – You not like it?
– No I just choked a little. – Okay, this rules by the way. This is so good.
– Oh man. – Do this at home. The fig in the ice
cream is so good, okay– – This has gotta be Martha Stewart. – I think it’s–
– It’s gotta be a chef type person who came up with this. – I think whoever did this is a cutie. Whoever did this is a real cutie
who likes to do cute things with their ice cream. – But do they smash? – No, I don’t think this
is a sexual thing at all. I resent the fact that
you’re making it like that. (Emily chuckles) I think this was done by number
one late cutie Jimmy Fallon. Whoa! – I’m gonna stick to my guns here. – I wanna share this with The Roots. I’m friends with Rhett and Link I think. – That’s true! – So I better not say
anything bad about myself. – I’m friends with Snoop Dogg. – [Stevie] This is incredible
because this is enjoyed by Jimmy Fallon.
– Hey! – [Stevie] Which means
Jordan is just on a roll. – Oh my God.
– What? – [Stevie] He confessed
on Ask Jimmy that he used to eat this all the time growing up. – Fallon rules. – Round four, American cheese singles. This is one of my favorite snacks. – Yeah this was, I mean, this was for me, this was like my number
one snack when I was four or now when I’m stoned. – Yes. This is, well my fridge is
dangerously close to my bed. – Really? – I can just open the
thing and reach on over. – You don’t have to move. – I don’t have to move.
– What a life. Yeah, it’s gummy. It might not be organic. – It is not.
– It rules. (pounds desk) – I love it.
– Oh yeah. I think whoever picked
this is trying to convey a wholesome image. ‘Cause this is a very like, you’re a kid. – Okay.
– You’re eating, Kraft, can we say Kraft? I don’t know, you’re
eating cheese singles. So I think, I don’t know,
I think whoever picked this in the interview is trying
to convey a wholesome, all-American, down-home image and who likes to convey
that image more than– – Taytay? – Taytay. – Dang.
– I have a new cat. – I feel like this is–
– It’s pretty good. – Here’s my reasoning for my choice. I think it’s somebody who’s like a, ugh, no I don’t like that. No!
– Take it off, Emily. – I think it’s either John
Cena or Channing Tatum because I just, I feel like people who are always gaining muscle mass– – Oh.
– Just eat stuff like this all the time.
– Are we gonna get jacked ’cause we ate that cheese? – No, let’s see, I
think it’s, I’m gonna go with Channing Tatum ’cause
he kinda looks like cheese. Doesn’t his face look like cheese? – What cheese?
– First, it is Kraft so– – Nice.
– You can say it. – Cool.
– Second, this is Martha Stewart. – [Both] No! – [Stevie] But the next
sentence I’m about to say I can’t believe I’m about to say it. She told Town and Country
that her guilty pleasure is to steal these out of
her housekeeper’s drawer and eat them right out of the plastic. – Prison has changed her. – [Stevie] I don’t know what that means. – Yeah, in prison you
can trade a Kraft single for a pack of cigarettes. – (laughs) You can. Damn, that makes me have
a lot of respect for her. – She steals from her employees. – Not that part.
– Yeah. – But the snackin’ part. – The part where she
snacks you can respect. – I have a lot of respect for– – Hey Martha, buy your own
Kraft singles, gosh darn it. (Emily chuckles) Round five, McDonald’s chicken
nuggets dipped in honey. We’re both very excited to eat this. – Yes he is. – Yeah, this is great. Not enough people know–
– Ooh! – That you can get honey at McDonald’s and you can dip nuggets in it and it rules.
– I didn’t know that. This is awesome.
– Oh yeah. – Oh I’m very, very excited.
– Yeah I usually get– – I don’t care if you
double dip by the way. – Aw thanks, that’s nice. Yeah I usually like to get
one little pack of honey and one little pack of BBQ
sauce and if they drip over into each other, who cares! – I’m afraid I’m gonna gleek everywhere, I’m salivating so hard.
(both laugh) – Yeah. Yeah this is great. – Mm-hmm.
– Pretty good, huh? – I’m so happy. – Yeah these are awesome. You can dip fries in ’em
too, that’s also very good. Yeah, boy, let’s see. This is a tough one.
– This is really tough. – I think, you know, I’m just gonna try and get into the head of the people who prepped
this game a little bit. – Okay. – The random celebrity on
here to me is Russell Brand. – Mm-hmm.
– I don’t know if, you know, he seems like
maybe he’s not been that high profile lately,
maybe he’s up to something, I certainly don’t know because
he wasn’t in Green Day. So I think he’s on here for a reason. – Okay.
– So I think maybe this is him, I’m gonna
go Russell Brand, mate. – I don’t think it’s Russell Brand. He wears too many necklaces
to eat McDonald’s. – He wears too many
necklaces to eat McDonald’s? – Listen, I think everyone
agrees with me but you. – I don’t understand the
logic of that at all. – People who wear necklaces
eat, you know, tofu. – No you’re right. People with necklaces do eat tofu. – Men with tons of necklaces. I think that your logic with
the American cheese thing about trying to seem wholesome,
it could be Taylor Swift but it could also be Kim
Kardashian in my opinion. I am gonna go– (sighs) I’m gonna go Kim Kardashian on this one just because I think it
would be a cool thing for her to say. – Yeah.
– I eat, you have honey all over Russell. (chuckles) – [Stevie] Okay. This is the go-to fast food
order for Kim Kardashian. – Yeah! Got one!
– Respect, respect. – [Stevie] She told her fans on her app that she likes to dip nuggets in honey. – Of course she did. Round six, PB and J with Cheetos. – Okay so right now I
am winning two to one. Rub rub rub, I’m rubbin’ it in. But Emily, you know me, I love the drama. I’m a messy (beep) who loves the drama. (Emily laughs) So why don’t we go ahead
and make this round worth two points so that
if someone wins this, they win the game. – That’s so generous.
– Thanks, I’m fun. So this peanut butter and jelly sandwich with Cheetos inside. Again, a brilliant innovation.
– Yeah. – And I’m– – It’s a little Breakfast Club. – It is a little Breakfast,
yes, it is a little Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club as
we just had some Pixy Stix. Yeah boy, I hate to
keep going back to this but this is so stonery. So I think whoever this
is is probably that way. – Yep. A lot of jelly. – It’s so, yeah, there’s too
much jelly in the sandwich but–
– Josh! You’re fired. – You know how we like our jelly! Sparse! No, you do a great job on
the show and we love you. – Definitely. – I didn’t wanna be mean to Josh. This is really, really good. Again I would put a
little less jelly on this but this is a great combination of things. (crew and Emily laugh) So I think that whoever eats this from time to time is probably
a little stoney baloney and I think of the people we have left, the most likely person is Channing Tatum. – Yeah I was gonna do that too but just to break it up, I’m
gonna go with Taylor Swift just ’cause this seems like
a trendy millennial thing to do, putting Cheetos on this so– – How so? – Well Cheetos are really cool right now. – Oh I didn’t know that. – Especially if they
were Flaming Hot Cheetos then I would really definitely
pick this but I don’t know, this just seems like a cutesy thing to do. Channing is so rude! – Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm. I was gonna be Gambit but
they canceled the movie. Mm, mm, mm.
– Is that true? – I think so.
– That is a big miss. – [Stevie] Okay this is
the favorite snack of one Channing Tatum.
– Oh! Ho ho ho!
– No! – Mm!
– This is a quote from him from his Reddit AMA. Bread, white, peanut
butter, not crunchy, creamy. Grape jelly, double portion. More than you think should
actually fit on a piece of white bread.
– Oh okay. So Josh was doing that
for a reason, way to go. – Sorry Josh. – God I’m so sticky. This is the stickiest I’ve been. – Since when, Jordan? – (chuckles) Since this morning. – Since you smashed. – Stop suggesting I have sex with cookies. It’s not helping my reputation. – Is it? – Well I win. Someone who looks a lot like
me and has a cotton candy beard and is hosting a new show
on the Mythical Society. – [Woman] Hey Randy, me and
my husband are now trying to have our first child. What do you think a name for
a girl or a boy should be? – If it’s a girl, Damp Napkin. If it’s a boy, Paul. If it’s a lizard, Swimmy. If it’s a cow, Brown Stuff. If it’s a dog, Best Friend. If it’s a cat, Angel. If it’s a mouse, Jesus. If it’s a hamster, Bookshelf. If it’s a bookshelf, Jesus. Tune in at MythicalSociety.com – Thank you for liking,
commenting and subscribing. – You know what time it is. – My name’s Cotton Candy Randy and this is Cotton Candy Mandy. – [Both] And it’s time to

– I’m so scared. One, two, three. (clanging) (bass guitar music) (cash register clinging) – (Male employee) Hello,
thank you for choosing Starbucks drive-thru, how can I help you today? – [Josh] Yeah, well
thank you for having me at the Starbucks drive-through. Can I go ahead and have two venti Pumpkin Spice Frappuccinos, please? How often are you drinkin’ Pumpkin Spice Frappuccinos and/or lattes? – I’ve never had one. – [Josh] You’ve never had one? – This is my first time. – Really? But this is like, a part of your… – My culture? – [Josh] Yeah, you know. – My white lady culture? (laughter) – Yeah, I didn’t want to
say it, but you said it! – That is a stereotype and
I do not appreciate it! (laughter) I guess I’ve always just felt
like, if I’m gonna drink, or eat, or consume, this
much sugar and calories, it might as well be cake,
ice cream, or booze. – This is better. Well, you can put booze
in this if you want, but this is just like liquified cake. It’s pretty much a glorified milkshake that has a nominal amount of coffee in it. – The whipped cream is amazing, though. – Mm hmm, the whole thing’s
a journey, you know. ‘Cause then you stir parts
of the whipped cream into it, and you kinda suck it off the top. – Speaking of journey,
Josh, why am I here? – I’m not gonna lie,
I thought you would be a huge pumpkin spice latte
and/or Frappuccino fan. – Right. – Because of the stereotyping. – Yeah. – Now, I know that I am
supposed to be your spirit guide into this journey to discover
your love of pumpkin spice. – I’m pretty basic, let’s
just add another notch to my basic bedpost. – You know what the most basic thing you can do in the fall is? – Pumpkin spice latte? – And go to an actual pumpkin patch. – Oh yay! – We are going to Tanaka
Farms pumpkin patch in Irvine, where they actually have
a giant pumpkin cannon that will shoot pumpkins. And we get to actually
pick our own pumpkins, that we gotta somehow
figure out to shove in our own fancy version of this. But more importantly, pumpkin cannon. (bass guitar music) – [Josh] How you doin’, I’m Josh. – Josh, Pat.
– Great to meet ya. – [Emily] Hey, Emily. – Emily, nice to meet you. – [Emily] Nice to meet you. – Pat, thank you so much for
having us at Tanaka Farms. We gotta talk about this
pumpkin spice craze, because right now it’s through the roof. That’s the entire reason we’re here. We want to make a several hundred-dollar Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino. – Well we have all kinds of pumpkins here. We have white ones, we’ve got orange ones, we have green ones, pink ones. – Well when you make $200
Frappuccinos at home, what pumpkins are you using? – When I regularly do that at home? – [Josh] Yeah. (laughter) – Any of these pumpkins you could make a pumpkin recipe from. – Do you think pumpkins can love? – You know, when there are
clients coming in here, and customers coming in here, they can think whatever they
would like about our pumpkins. – Sometimes people like to pumpkin spice things up a little bit. (hands slapping) – Okay. – [Josh] Got him. – [Emily] So Josh, what is
the pumpkin in pumpkin spice? – Oh, there’s no pumpkin in pumpkin spice. – At all? – No, no, no, so it just
refers to the spices that you would put on a
pumpkin to make a pumpkin pie. But that said, even
though there’s no pumpkin in Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino, I wanna put a buncha pumpkin in ours. So, I wanna take like 20 pounds of it, reduce it down in a pot so it becomes a quarter cup of syrup, and then we’re gonna drizzle
that little pumpkin molasses on top of the whipped cream. – So they can’t be too big, or they won’t fit down the cannon wall. We like ’em nice and tight inside there. He’s gonna get the stem
off that, ’cause otherwise it’ll get caught up inside. – How many confirmed kills does
this particular cannon have? – Well, was one wounding, we know of that. – Okay. – Yeah. Yeah.
– Okay. – And you’re gonna turn around and you’re just gonna
push that plunger down. – Okay, alright. – You can do this Emily! – All right, okay. – [Pat] We got faith in ya. – [Emily] I’m so scared! One, two, three. (whoosh of air) – [Josh] Oh! (laughs) – [Emily] Oh my gosh! – [Josh] That is a million times farther than I thought it would shoot! – Wait, what does this have to
do with pumpkin spice lattes, like do I have to go get that now? – [Josh] This one looks
good, nice and orange. – Yeah, but it feels
like it’s full of itself, like it knows it’s orange. – Hmm. I get that. – That’s not okay. The main thing I’m looking
for in a pumpkin is energy. I want it to feel like
it’s got good vibes. Those are a no, they’ve
obviously been to Lollapalooza. (laughter) This one’s got unresolved
issues with it’s father, I can tell. That looks like me with a swimsuit on. This one’s pretty! – You’re feeling good energy from it? – Ooh, look how pretty
that color is underneath! That’s gorgeous! Looks like a firecracker
on the Fourth of July! It’s attached to stuff. Can you get it? – No, no, no, if you
drag the whole vine out, then all the rest of the
pumpkins on it are free. So rip it up, you got it! Use your legs! (leaves rustling) – God, this is just… – Pull harder! – Okay! – There you go, all right. – All right, okay. – So I have all the
ingredients laid out here, you just keep holding that
pumpkin, you’re doing awesome. So right here we have all the ingredients to make our actual pumpkin spice. This is the Voyager Collection,
that’s in conjunction with Chef Eric Ripert, a three Michelin starred
chef from Le Bernadin, with La Boite in New York City, so really excellent spices here. – This is really heavy. – Yeah, just tuck your
arms, tighten your core, you’re gonna be okay. Right here we have a Heaven’s
Door 10-year aged bourbon. I’ve already gotten into it a little bit, I had to taste test it for breakfast. – So, this is actually made
in conjunction with Bob Dylan. – Bob Dylan. – Big bourbon! Okay, and then we also have this Raw Straus Cream from a local dairy, and this is raw, so it’s not pasteurized, so we may get some sort
of stomach worm and die, But if we die, you don’t have
to hold that pumpkin anymore, so that’s pretty cool. And then, to make the base of
our pumpkin spice ice cream to go in the Frappuccino,
we have camel milk. We got all this delicious
pumpkins that we’re gonna reduce down to make a pumpkin syrup. And then to make the actual
coffee for the Frappuccino we have Kopi Luwak, also
known as wild cat poop coffee. – I knew you were gonna do this. – This is farmed in Sumatra,
and this is actually ethically farmed, Gayo
Kopi’s whole mission is to farm Kopi Luwak wild
and keep the habitats intact, and they actually maintain the eco-system through the farming. Sustainability is cool, kids! They’re also called civets, not cats. They’re not little house cats. And then, my favorite
part, we have Bling H20. This is just straight-up water. However, this is water
that is bottled directly at the English spring
source where it comes from in the great Smokey
Mountains, and it costs $40. – Oh, the Smokies! – You’re from there! – Yeah! – And it is actually endorsed
by a personal hero of mine, Paris Hilton. It’s hot. – It’s hot water? – That’s hot. We’re gonna make ice
cubes out of it actually. So now we gotta grind up these beans. Ew, you ate cat poop, gross! – It’s really good. I don’t poop, but if I
did, I wish it was coffee. – I just wish I had any value in my poop. I feel like I’m wasting company dollars ’cause I’m always doin’ it at work. Okay, we’re just gonna go ahead.. – Whew it’s bitter though! – We’re gonna let it run! (grinding) – Ooh, that’s nice! – Right? Now we just have to toast up our spices for the pumpkin spice. – What is that? – Ooh, so here we have black cardamom. – [Emily] I put two in. – [Josh] Two is enough, two’s enough. – Ooh, that smells like Christmas! – It smells Christmasy in here! I’m Jewish. – I like sniffin’ everything. It feels like my only
contribution to this. I’m not really helping. – I’m just gonna take
this and use our fingers in the hot pan. – Ooh, why? – Oh, I forgot to get a spoon
or something to do this. You wanna go ahead and press that button. – [Emily] Okay. – And just let it run. (soft whirring) Hmm. It normally does more than that. (laughs) This has never happened before, I swear. All right, press that button. – Okay. (grinding) Whoa! – Look at you, you’re cookin’! You’re doin’ so good, oh my God! – Wow it lasts really long. – So we’ve got these pumpkins
that we picked from the patch, we have the one that reminds
you of your grandfather. – His nose, specifically. He was a drinker. – Gotcha, we’ll impact that later. So, I’m gonna go ahead and
hack these pumpkins in half, and then I need you to scoop
out the seeds into there. – Okay. – We’re gonna roast ’em off
to start making the syrup for our pumpkin-bourbon molasses. (bang) Great, Okay! So you’ve got this in half, you just wanna scoop out those seeds. So, I’m just gonna brush
these down with butter, and then we’re gonna roast
these skin-side down, really try and get some
caramelization on the bottom. You’ll try and hack that pumpkin up. Be safe. – Okay, Grandpa. (bang) – Yeah, that’s great. Just another 15-25
hacks and you’ve got it. (bang) That’s good, keep goin’. – Okay, I’ve chopped up my grandpa’s nose. – All right, awesome! So this pumpkin’s got a nice, white flesh. – Just like my grandpa. – Just like your grandpa! (laughter) We’re gonna go ahead and we’re
gonna shove this in the oven, get it nice and caramelized, and then we’re gonna
start boilin’ it down. – You say care-melized? – Yeah, what do you say? – Car-melized. – Which is wrong, there’s like an A in it, there’s just a whole other
letter that you’re omitting. – Yeah, but it makes you sound like, uh.. – How do you pronounce Wednesday? So, we’re gonna go ahead
and shove that in the oven, and we’re gonna wait for that to roast, and then we’re gonna start
gettin’ it in that pot. While it’s roasting though… – Are we doin’ it from daddy’s cup? Daddy’s cup is when you
drink it from the bottle. – I’ve never heard that. (laughs) That’s depressing! That’s a fine bourbon! – Ooh, ooh, yeah! – Tanaka Farms, no more! – You see where it comes from
when you drink his whiskey! Tanaka! – [Josh] Ain’t gonna work
for Tanaka brother no more! – That’s enough, we just gotta take these pumpkins outta the oven. And the cool thing about roasting pumpkins is when you put ’em in, that sometimes the pumpkins look completely different, and there are more pumpkins on the pan than when you put ’em in, and they’re also completely
different pumpkins. – [Josh and Emily] Magic! – So what we’re basically doing is making a pumpkin molasses. So we’re putting this in
a lot, a lot of water, because you want it to really break out and extract a lot of the starch. – Yeah, I think I get why
it’s just a pumpkin spice. – [Josh and Emily] Oh no! – It’s your fault, daddy’s glass! (laughter) I think I’ve never made you laugh before! – [Josh} You have not! – This is the only time! – No, the daddys’ glass thing. – Wait, did we put the
bourbon in their yet? – Ooh, not yet. – I wanna do it. – So this is gonna come to a boil, and then it’s gonna reduce
for about four hours. Alright, so this has been boiling away, and now what we have to do
is strain all the pumpkin out and really extract all the juice from it. Yeah, so we’re just gonna
transfer this to another pot, and get it in our chinois, and you see once you push it through, it starts gushin’ out right there. Starbucks is not doin’ this. – Nor should they have to. – Nor should they, they have hard jobs. – They do have hard jobs,
spellin’ names wrong takes a lot of effort. – Who is Jash? – Did someone call you Jash? – They sure did! All right, so this is gonna keep reducing, and then we’re good to start making our camel milk ice cream. – What? We’re making ice cream? This is a lot, Josh. – It’s a lot. – You didn’t tell me
how much we were doing. – Beauty is pain. So I’m gonna go ahead and
get the camel milk heating, we’re doing a custard-base. (pan searing) There we go, a nice and singed camel milk. And put our egg yolks into this milk. We don’t want it to boil ’cause we don’t want it to scramble, And then we’re just
gonna take all the sugar, and then if you wanna get a hefty pinch of that pumpkin spice, and put it right in here. That’s gorgeous. And if you wanna pour a
shot of bourbon in here, I didn’t wanna get it on the heat, because I didn’t wanna lose
all that sweet, sweet liquor. That’s good. So now we’re just gonna
take that custard-base, the eggs have started to
thicken just a little bit. – [Emily] Hang on. – Is that it, wait. Does anyone wanna volunteer to come in and try to turn this on? (beeps) – Oh, you gotta start the
timer and then press on. And then you’re gonna churn that ice cream for about 45 minutes and
then it’ll be good to go in your Frappuccino. So, a Frappuccino
obviously filled with ice, so we need to go ahead
and open that water, and we’re gonna make
clear ice cubes with it. So, you should model for Bling20. – I don’t think that I would
be the person they’d choose. – [Josh] So we’re gonna go ahead
and pour the water in here. – What is clear ice, though? – So, clear ice results
from taking out the air-flow inside whatever the ice is freezing in, and also super-cooling it. So, this is insulated
with all this rubber, and then we need to get
this water to at least warm. We’re looking for about 115 degrees. All right, so, we’re at about 105. – You can tell what temperature
something is by touching it? – Actually, I got pretty good at it because a standard hot tub is
at 104 and a quarter degrees, and so I always just think, does this feel like a hot tub or not? (laughter) – This goes with your personality so well! Hot tub, babe. Babe, babe, hot tub. If you stuck a finger in someone’s mouth, could you tell if they were sick or not? No. – I’m sorry, I thought you were asking! – No! – [Josh] Geez, I dunno! (laughter) And then we’re just gonna
go ahead and pour this, about midway through in there,
and now we’re gonna go ahead and put this into the freezer. Uh-oh! Uh-oh! She’s a squirter! – This is never gonna make it to air. – It’s never gonna make it to air. I hope we get enough footage from this to even make an episode at this point. (laughter) Let’s make some coffee. So, what we have here is a mocha-pot, And I’m just gonna tamp this coffee down, we really want it to be a strong coffee. Screw this top on. Oh no, lids, my nemesis! – Here we go. I love how I have a
hard time opening lids, but you can’t close them. – There’s a metaphor somewhere in there. – Somewhere, yeah. – I don’t know how to open this lid. – You don’t know how to open this lid?! – I don’t know how to open that lid! I don’t have fingernails! There ya go! I hate that worked, that’s gross. – My teeth are fake. (laughter) – That’s right, we went through this! A lot of dental trauma! You wanna smell that? This is what fresh vanilla smells like. – Ooh, that smell is like
the first smell that hits you when you’re near a Bath
and Body Works in the mall. – Yeah! I’m just gonna whip that buddy up! (whirring) We’re also gonna take a
bit of that pumpkin spice, throw a little bit of that in there. This cream’s lookin’ good. – Can I lick the whisk? – [Josh] Yes, you can lick the whisk. – I’m just gonna move this. – Oh sure, my dad was just
gonna go get cigarettes. – Are you okay? – It was my mom who left. – Oh, cool. – We got our whipped
cream done, just kinda. Oh yeah, that’s ready to go! Just gonna pour some of this coffee, and we want it to be cool before we actually put it into the Frappuccino. Look at her shine! – Oh man, that looks really pretty! It’s too hot! – It’s too hot. – Should we wait for this to get cooler? – I think we should. – Uh, what should we do while we wait? (laughter) Don’t drink all of it! I think I just wanna do this show forever! – Let’s do it! – Cool. – Alright, let’s make a Frappuccino. (grunts) So now the coffee’s
cool, you wanna try it? – Alright! – ♪ Best part of wakin’ up,
is cat poop in your cup! ♪ – Whoo! That’s like espresso, it’s really good! – Yeah, that was the goal. So, first step, we gotta
take out our clear ice, see if it actually made it clear. – [Emily] Ooh! – Okay, it’s mostly clear! So I don’t want to put the
whole ice cubes in the Vitamix, so we gotta bash ’em up. – Cool! Oh, boy! – Alright, you just wanna
bash those up with a hammer? – Yes! – Figure it out! – Oh wow, this is fun! Thank you for this honor! (banging) – [Josh] There! – Ow, my fingie! (laughter) – Did you actually get it? (banging) Alright that should be good. That was pretty good. – That was super fun except for the pain. (ice clinking) – Into the blender there. – Okay. – And then we gotta get a
fair amount of ice cream. – This looks so good. – Oh yeah! That should be really good. So this is infused all that pumpkin spice. I’m just need to get a little
bit of fresh pumpkin spice. – I’m just imagining some lady, with a can I speak to the manager haircut, waiting for this. (laughter) Like, what in the world
is taking so long!? – Chill, Carol! – Chill it out, it’s
gonna be really great! There’s camel milk! – I haven’t even tried fresh camel milk. – Oh no. Now it’s food fears. – That’s good, it tastes
like human breast milk. So we’re gonna go ahead and pour a little bit of that in there. – It tastes the way that
Kindergarten smells. – (laughs) And then we’re gonna take.. – Like paper, and where’s my mom. – Where is my mom? – Oh no, I walked right into it! – And then blend this up and
we can add stuff as we go if we need it. – Can I push the button? (blender whirring) – Yeah! – I feel so powerful! – I mean another shot of this
couldn’t hurt, am I right? – And one shot of vodka,
is that what she says? And one shot of vodka! – [Male Voice] Oh, no! Stop, stop, stop! – Perfect! (laughter) (blender whirring) That’s lookin’ Frappuccino-y to me! Crank it! Alright, I think we’re ready. – Okay. – All right, so now we’ve gotta start building this Frappuccino. So what I’m gonna do is take some of that pumpkin-bourbon molasses, and I’m just gonna get
a nice drippy drizzle all down the sides of this cup. – Ooh, that’s pretty! – So we’re gonna take all of
our delicious Frappuccino. – [Emily] Ooh! – And then we’ve gotta get
our creme chantilly on there. – So this fits in regulated
car cup holders, right? – Oh, of course! And then for the finishing touch. – Oh! Magic! – And then we’re just gonna
stick a straw in there, and there’s our fancy Frappuccino. Alright we got our fancy
Frappuccino all done, can you pull out the other
drink for comparison? All right, so if you see, we got a little more height on ours, we got a bit of a darker color. I think there’s some more
coffee flavor in ours, but the proof is in the Frappuccino, and we’ve gotta try these side by side. – Okay. – All right, let’s do it. Still not bad, you know, but I think this one’s gonna pack a
little bit more punch. All right, let’s do it. Oh! – Oh my God! – What!? – This tastes like childhood. – Really? This was your childhood? – Yeah, taste the childhood you never had. It tastes like the way Christmas smells. It’s so good! It tastes like pumpkin pie, but pumpkin pie for me
is usually too thick, and it makes me feel guilty and sad. – Yeah. – This does not make me feel
guilty about drinking it, at all. – This is a guilt-free Frappuccino. – Yes! – It’s supporting a good cause. It’s supporting Bob Dylan. – Wait, so how much does
this cost in the end? – So, in the end, it
totaled up to $214.89. (laughter) That’s more than my car payment! (laughter) Thank you so much for watching! If you wanna watch more food shows, subscribe to the Mythical YouTube Channel, if we get enough subscribers, we can keep making awesome

Today we pick the greatest
snack of all time. Let’s talk about that.( music playing )Good Mythical Morning! Thank you for making us a part
of your daily routine. Today we’re gonna
be guessing what the Mike and Alex
destroyed this time, and we’re gonna be re-tasting
the top four grossest foods we have ever eaten
on the show. But first,
this is it, guys! The final four! We are down
to the last four snacks in our Munch Madness
tournament. One from each category and we’re about to decide
the best snack ever. It’s time for… Whoo-hoo! All right, so we’ve been
through all the sweet snacks, all the salty snacks,
all the meaty, cheesy snacks,
and all the chips. And we have crowned the best
snacks from each category, and now all that’s left
to do is taste and judge these
last matchups. But before we do, let’s take a second
to look back at how our final four
snacks got here. Man:The road to victory.64 snacks entered, only one
can be crowned champion.Let’s meet our four
final snacks.First Cheetos.They’ve been staining the
fingers of toddlers since 1948.Cheetos were a favorite to win
the meaty, cheesy regionbut not before fightingthe most emotionally trying
battle of their livesMuch like the Virginia soldiers
of the Civil War,it was brother against brotheras Cheetos took
on Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.Red dust was shed,
hopes were crunchedand Cheetos prevailed paving
the way to the final four.Bugles came
from humble beginnings.Released in 1965 alongside
Buttons, and Bows,the Bugle was the only crunchy
corn creation to survive.Nobody expected this fourth
seed to make it to the end,but fate stepped in.It truly is a salty
Cinderella story.Sour Cream & Onion Lay’s
is a perennial powerhousein the Snack It Bracket,
and this year was no different.The number one seeded chip
that Dick Vitale once called…faced tough competition
in its region.Ruffles fell first and then
faced Nacho Cheese Doritosto finally answer the question,which is worse?Cheese fingies or onion breath?Rhett and Link went
with their gut,both figuratively and literallyto bring Sour Cream & Onion
Lay’s to the final four.And finally, Peanut M&M’s.These party essentials
were created in 1954
by Forrest Mars.A man who ironically was
allergic to peanuts.They chewed their way
through the sweet bracket
defeating Reese’s Piecesin a battle that fans
described as nuts.Ultimately they faced off
with the fan voted
number one seed Oreos.But without milk by their side
Oreos got creamed,and Peanut M&M’s proved
that the EpiPen truly is
mightier than the sword.( whistle blows )I’m actually moved
emotionally. – This has been a big week
– Yes, it has. We’ve been
on quite a journey. You know it’s not about us,
it’s about the snacks. Snacks and Alex, we’ve been
through a lot together. There’s a lot
of pressure, though. I’m really feeling
the pressure like if we get
this wrong– – I know.
– We may have already
gotten it wrong. And after eating
all that my health I think
is starting to suffer. Yeah, well, there’s only
a little bit more tasting to go. – All right.
– Let’s get to it. All right, our first semifinal
match is the underdog, Cinderella story,
Bugles versus the powerhouse, Lay’s Sour Cream & Onion. Here’s what we know
about Bugles… And here’s what we know
about Lay’s Sour Cream
& Onion… – Pretty good!
– Pretty good.
Again, let’s re-visit– I’d say they’re real good. Get a little witch finger here. You come a long way, Bugles. And I’m reminded once again
how good they are right now! Salty, buttery,
triangular, geometric. – Fun!
– But over here– You’ve got the delectable,
crispy chippiness. Mmm. Yeah, those are real good.
Aren’t they? You know,
as a big of a deal it is, to be in the final four
and you’re both winners. I mean, I think
we know what’s up. Right?
Sour Cream & Onion. I thought you were on the Bugle
train with me. – The Bugle twain?
– The Bugle twain. I love Bugles. It’s been a great run. You think the victory of Bugles is just making it
to the final four? That’s as far
as Cinderella gets? Cinderella’s gotta try
her shoe on and not turn into a pum– I don’t understand, well,
I don’t remember the story. But– yeah.
No. The crunchiness. – The flavor punch.
– There’s a flavor punch
in these. – It’s a low punch.
Like a punch to the groin.
– It does so much. It does so much
with so little, though. This is the gentle lover. Remember when you played
one of these through a Funyun? – It’s a little childish.
– Remember how special that was? It gets you back in touch
with your youth. Listen, man, the more you talk the more I get
into the Bugle camp. I’m getting inside my little
Bugle like a teepee and I’m not getting out. I’m saying Bugles. Are you falling for the
Cinderellaishness of this? A little bit maybe,
but I do feel strongly about it. – It’s a great story.
– It tastes so good. Look at you just sitting there
eating them. I’m trying to get on your twain,
but I can’t do it. Well,
we do have a tiebreaker, who– we could use. I think we need to. All right,
tiebreaker it is. Rhett:
NCAA champion, six-time NBA champion, six-time
MVP, 19-time NBA all-star and the first person to be on
this show who’s taller than me, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar! Link: Whoo! Come on over! – Ah, it is an honor
to have you, sir.
– Yes! – Yeah, you got a little
bike seat there.
– Yeah. We got you a Kareem size seat. – Okay, now–
– There you go. Three-time NCAA champion. So, being
at that Final Four, how does it compare
to being at this final four? Well, you know, it’s a different
ambiance here, you know. Yep, you’ve never experienced
this much pressure. Is that what you’re saying? You know, all the little kids
that are watching and their lives will
be affected by this. – That is true.
– You know, we have to do
a good job here. Okay, right.
I’m glad you understand
what’s at stake here. You’re right,
this is very important. Before you we have Bugles and
Lay’s Sour Cream & Onion chips. Feel free to sample them
and then deliberate as you see fit. Okay. Mm-hmm. – Kareem: Okay.
– Okay. – Number two?
– Link: Yeah, go for it. He didn’t seem overwhelmed
by the Bugles, I will say. You know he’s– He’s a cool one
but he’s a champion! He’s thinking, yeah.
He can’t be shaken. – He can’t be shaken!
– So just give us your thoughts on each of them now
that you’ve tasted both. Just general thoughts. Uh, the Bugles are dry
and unattractive. – What?
– I see where this is going. The Lay’s are tasty. I love the taste. So, I’m gonna have
to go with Lay’s. He’s gonna have to go
with the Lay’s! He has spoken! You don’t have to go
with Lay’s! – Hold on. No, we’re impartial.
– I do, yeah. We’re just as impartial
as the man. I gotta say
I’m a little disappointed, but, Kareem, I’d rather
be disappointed by you – than anybody else
on the planet.
– Me, too. – Okay.
– All right, Sour Cream & Onion
Lay’s moves on! – Great job, Alex!
– Thank you. Hi, Kareem. Okay, let’s find out
who else we’re sending
to the championship game. All right,
first up we’ve got Cheetos. They have… And here is how Peanut
M&M’s break down… Wow! You learn
something new every day! I try to limit it to every
other day, but you’re right. Any day I can learn something
new about John Goodman. – Don’t change the subject.
– I’m all about it. We’ve got a job to do. Let’s start
with the Cheeto, friend. – So cheesy, so crunchy.
– I’m reminded why they made it to the finals. Every one has it’s own
personality – that you kill when you eat it.
– Yeah. How do they make ’em?
Does Chester the Cheetah–
Does he– – Does he fart them out?
– Yeah. I think that’s how it works.
Him and John Goodman. John Goodman is sitting
there next to Cheddar– Chester Well, he’s the voice for these,
just to be clear. He poops these out. You know know
what John Goodman is up to? He’s all over the place. I love how you got
the big ones that have a different
cheese to corn ratio. Then the little,
little, little ones. If you wanna get
more cheese crunch you just find a little one. Okay. We know
we like those a lot, but don’t forget
about M&M. First of all,
these are good
back-to-back. – I’d like to create a mix
out of these.
– You wouldn’t think these should ever compete
for anything, ’cause you can– I’ve got enough love
for both of these. – Just like most of my children.
– But you do have a favorite. – Right. I do have a favorite.
– Man, I’ve eaten a lot. I keep going back
through the layers. There’s something
about the complexity. It’s like a fine wine, man.
It’s like I’m on a trip – to Napa with my wife.
She’s like– No.
– Am I there? You’re not even on text.
You’re not texting
with me at all. – That’s fine.
– This is complete separation. That’s fine.
You know what? I’m somewhere–
I’m at the beach. She’s like, “I’m so glad
you made these plans. You’re so thoughtful, you think
about our relationship. – You are such a romantic man.”
– What are you talking about? Are you sucking up
to your wife? “Let’s enjoy
this wine together. With all it’s many
different flavors.” That’s kinda what eating
Peanut M&M’s is like, baby. It’s so hard
to compare these two, guys. – It really is.
They’re both beautiful.
– We can’t have a tie, though. I don’t wanna put Kareem
through this. Let’s just–
Let’s just decide in our own brains
without even talking anymore. And we’ll do a three, two, one
and put our hands over them. And then if we disagree
then we’ll hash it out, but maybe we agree,
just based on instinct. Okay. I’m ready. Three, two, one. – Oh! Cheetos!
– We agreed. And the reason why yes,
is the cheesy– It just come– It’s such a unique snack. – Yeah.
– And it’s so great! Imitated
but never replicated. I don’t know
what the saying is. – All I know is Cheetos is
moving on to the finals!
– Moves on! Link:
And, Alex, you know what? You’ve worked so hard
this week. – Oh, thanks, guys.
– First of all,
I wanna thank you. I just want
to acknowledge the toll that this has taken
on your body. – You’re worn down, man.
– I know. – You need some help.
– Oh, thanks! Is Kareem still here? Great. Thanks, Kareem. – Never forget that moment.
– No. Oh, I’m gonna keep it with me
for a very long time. Now it’s time
for the halftime show. ( music playing ) – Link: Oh, it’s Chase.
– Rhett: Oh. Okay, he is very talented. Look, a unicycle.
What’s he gonna do with that? Nothing. Link:
Cut himself. Rhett:
Oh, he’s got an apple. He can take apart an apple
and make a funny noise. ( laughs ) Rhett:
Thank you, Chase! All right,
now it’s time for the championship. Rhett:
It all comes down to this…Okay, man! – Look we’ve made it
to the championship.
– Yeah. Of course we knew
we were gonna make it. Yeah, but now we got to make a very important decision. Two number one seeds made it
to the final. I’m tasting this first.
Taste this first. Let’s get a good old-fashioned
dink it and sink it. It just triggers memories
of positive snacking for decades – in my mind.
– But just smell a Cheeto. Just smell a Cheeto. I mean,
it just smells so good. – Give me a Cheetos stache.
– You got to make it. Look at that.
How’s that? How’s that make you feel?
Can you do that with a chip? I don’t know
that’s a good question. – Try it.
– You already have a stache. Ah! You can do it
with that, too! – So they’re still
– Okay, all right. I’m gonna eat this one. I mean, I’m not so much a fan
of cheesiness that that’s– – Really?
– That’s pointing me
that direction. Maybe I’ll eat ’em
back-to-back real fast. I think the delicate nature
of this chip, It’s so thin and so dainty
yet such a– Such a strong flavor. – Oh, man.
– It is a gentle lover. This is more like a–
like a good therapy session. It’s like wow!
I feel like you’re fading
from the Cheetos side. Like your allegiance is going to Sour Cream & Onion
real fast. But you know what?
There’s one thing about the Cheetos
that over the course of this entire tournament
we have not mentioned once. And it’s arguably one
of the most important
factors of Cheetos. – You can put ’em in your nose.
– Nope. Cheeto dust. – Cheeto dust.
– How have we gotten this far without acknowledging Cheeto dust on the fingers? That you then lick off. Right. It’s like
you enjoy it again. It’s the dark
horse factor. Do you think that the Cheeto
dust is a good thing? – I think it’s a great thing.
– Yeah, I like licking
my fingers. Man, this is freakin’ tough,
man. There’s just something
about that tang, though. Mm-hmm. From the Sour Cream & Onion
that I keep coming back to. It’s so surprising. The delicate crunch
versus the bold cheese. Okay, let’s do the three,
two, one thing. Both: Three, two, one. – Oh!
– We agree! That means our champion,
the best snack ever, is Lay’s Sour Cream & Onion
potato chips! Whoo!
Put it on there, Alex! Link:
you made a great stand. You are excellent. Really the real winner here
is Frito-Lay. Whoo! Whoo! – Yeah! Whoo!
– All right! We got chips for days.
There you go! Let us know how much
you disagree with us
in the comments. Whoo! Or if you agree
let us know that, too. And thank you to the legend,
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – for helping us out today.
– Yeah. Maybe we should do this
again next year! – Yeah!
– And even better, with different stuff.
I don’t know – how we’re gonna do it.
– Don’t make promises. Click on through
because Mike and Alex have once again
destroyed something and we’re gonna figure out
what it was.We might not have
a basketball team,but we do have
a collegiate T-shirt.Sport your Mythical school
spirit at mythical.store.
– Today we test: The Oreo Dipr.
– Let’s talk about that. ♪ (theme music) ♪ – Good Mythical Morning!
– Today we have a big announcement, for months we’ve been working with our
friends Chester C. and Abdul Khan and developing a brand new app, it’s a
trivia app called Trivy! – Yeah!
– T-R-I-V-Y. – And here’s the cool thing about the app:
you can download your favorite internetainer’s pack. And it was written by the
internetainers themselves. – Over 60 packs of different content creators.
You can get the app for free and play general trivia but then you can download
the individual packs of your favorite people.
– I know for a fact that many friends of ours have revealed information…
– Exclusive…. – …within the Trivy app so download
Trivy on iTunes coming to Android soon, we’ll put the link in the description,
but we’re gonna move on. – Yes.
– We’re moving on now. – Okay. You guys have questions for us on
Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. And those questions are like cars. Puttering
around and sputtering to a stop on the shoulder of some remote desert highway
with no help in sight. And we, like oil men, dig and frack and drill into the
ground, searching for deposits of answer oil that we can then run through the
refining plant that is our brains… – Yes.
– …and then, here we come! Barreling out to your location and spewing
gas answers into your question car. – (makes honking noise)
– You drive away satisified, but you know what? You’re gonna be back. Oh yeah.
‘Cause you’re gonna need more answer gas. And until you reduce your dependency
on us, we’ll be glad to come to your rescue. You drink our answer gas!
You drink it up! – (laughter) Wow! That got a little
political in there, huh? That’s nice.
– Mmm. Risky. – Uh, Ivana de la Cruz asked a question
related to, uh, what was it? Together – Desserts!
– We asked you to ask us about desserts. – That was the question.
Did I forget to mention that? – Was that not in the car-thing?
– It wasn’t. It wasn’t. Sorry. – Ivana de la Cruz asks, Tips to make sure to
leave space for dessert, question mark? – Okay. This is a great question. Because
I, for a large percentage of my life…. – Gotta leave room for dessert!
– Well no, not only that, I didn’t just think leaving room for dessert,
I was convinced that I had a dessert stomach. Because, after I finished a meal,
and I was totally full on whatever I was eating, I always had room for dessert.
And I suspected, that there… – I can vouch for this.
– ….was some science behind this. And it turns out that this is totally scientific.
You always have room for dessert. It is a physical fact, and here’s why.
Okay. Scientifically speaking, what actually happens is when you are really full
at the end of a meal… – Okay.
– …and then you consume glucose, which is sugar, it actually sends a…
– Expansion message? – …message to your stomach to relax
and expand. It is a scientific fact. And what happens is, is it begins, it begins
expanding, and you can actually eat quite a lot of dessert because it doesn’t begin
to send signals that you should stop eating until that sugar gets into the end of your small
intestine. So that’s why you can actually be really full and then eat a lot of dessert and
feel okay. Glucose actually causes your stomach to expand. So, the answer to your
question Ivana, is, you don’t have to make room for dessert once you start eating
the dessert, the dessert… Together – Makes room for itself!
– That’s crazy! – Science is awesome!
– Also, a little scary. Kersey Hames asks, Which dessert is
the messiest? Okay, Kersey. There’s plenty of messy desserts out there, but
I’m gonna go out on a limb here, I’m gonna say the most horrible mess that you can make is
in the dunking of a cookie in milk. – Oh. That’s inconvenient.
– Then you’ve got the whole timing issue when you pull it out too late it’s
like (water noises) – Well, structural integrity…
– The cookie’s like (water noises) everywhere – Structural integrity of cookies is
compromised by the saturation of the cookie itself.
– Oh, you said it. – And nobody likes that.
– You said it, man. – Nobody likes that.
– So that brings us to: A Weird Product You Must Have! – Introducing the Dipr, the hook-shaped
utensil designed to dunk cookies into cow-juice!
It fits perfectly! – Well, I would hope they got that detail
right. It’s like, Herb, uh, the hooks are all the wrong size but uh, maybe we
should still send ’em out. (crew laughter)
– Aww yeah. – Look at this.
– I am excited about this, here. – If I dip?
– We dip. – You dip? We dip?
– Okay, yeah. (crew laughter)
– Okay, here we go. Ooh, you can really let it get soggy.
– Mine’s dangling. – I like it getting soggy.
– Eat it. Tell me. – Oh. Mmm. It’s a little bit
of crunch, and a lot of love, from me. – Now see, I don’t want any crunch,
I’m goin’ down to the bottom. – (mimicking Link) I don’t want
any crunch! – I’m scraping…
– (mimicking) I wanna get that crunch right outta there. – Alright, here we go.
– I’m gonna, I’m gonna get one more. If you’re not careful, you will cut
yourself like a fish. – Yeah (laughter).
– But you know what, these things are so amazing, I thought to myself,
it’s just a hook that grabs a round thing to dip into a liquid.
– Mhmm. – We can find other round things to dip
into other liquids. – So we did!! Alright. So I know I’ve
been given a whole thing of marinara. – Yes, and I’m about to give you…
– Ooh! Cheese wheels! – Yes. Grab a cheese wheel, hook it onto your
hook. Oh, not like that. You gotta do it the right way. Do it like this.
– Do it like this? – Mhm. Perfect size. And then you fully
submerge ’em in the marinara. – Ohp! Oh! I lost it.
– Oh gosh! Mine’s doin’ just fine.
– I lost it. I had to, I had to fish it. – It’s so cheesy. Mm. Oh.
That was a good idea. Did you fish it out of there, you got it?
– I found it. – DId you find it with your hook?
– Mhmm. – Is it called the hook?
– No, it’s called the Dipr. – The Dipr. That’s right. It’s not called the hook.
– And they efficiently only used one vowel. – What if we could start a hook, though?
– The Hooker? No. (crew laughter)
– The Hooker. The new competitor to the Dipr.
– Um, no. – You got anything else to dip over there?
– Um, I have mustard. Oh, I got this too! – Goll-ee.
– Round salamis! – It’s not really salami-sized.
– We’re encountering some resistance here with the…
– Well, I gotta kinda hook it a little bit. I don’t know, is that cheating?
– There are no rules with the Dipr! – I’ve hooked my salami.
– Alright, so…. – Full submersion in…I didn’t plan for
that much mustard. – Ohh, goodness.
(crew laughter) – What’s up with you and losing stuff, man?
– I gotta, I mean it’s like baiting a hook, it’s really…
– Mm. Mustardy. If I get some on the right part of
my shirt you won’t even know. – Alright. I’m gonna catch up.
Woo. That is a lot of mustard. (crew laughter)
Alright, I’m going in. – You gave me an idea, you losin’
and stuff. There just happens to be some fish over here.
– Oh no. – Link, these are sardine pieces.
– Eugh. It’s like a fish sausage. – But this is like the freshest fish
you’ll ever eat. Like, stickin’ a hook into the ocean? And gettin’ it. Take out your lemon
juice. I got you some lemon juice over there. And just hook the sardine, just right there.
– I couldn’t even eat a salami. Ooh. Golly. – Get your hook out. This is like
me and you, in a raft, on the Atlantic, just stranded. And we have
these hookers, and that’s it. (crew laughter)
– Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. – Okay so here we go, you just dip.
– Oh, you’re not hanging it? Look, you gotta hang it vertical like that.
– I think I’m gonna get plenty. – And then (dip noise).
– Oh, full submersion? Together- And then you bring it up!
(crew laughter) – And then, what’re we gonna say next?
– And then you eat… – And then you let Rhett bite it.
– Here we go. – Ooh, that’s a big juicy…
– Oh, there’s bones in it. That’s the way it would be on the ocean, though.
– Mmm. Catfood. – It’s not that bad.
– (like a cat) Meow! (crew laughter)
– Okay, I think that this has been a pretty successful endeavor.
– Yeah, I think that we have tested the limits of the Dipr, and uh, learned some stuff!
What, exactly? I do not know. – I think it’s that, this has been… A Weird Product that You Must Have! Okay, next question comes from Alex
McClarnon. Do you have any advice on how to obtain water and food in
the dessert? – (laughs) How to obtain water and
food in the… Together – Dessert.
– Um, Alex, actually, um, we are not too sure ourselves. But, I do know
of a couple of guys who, they have one of those survival shows….
– Mmm! – …on one of the nature networks, it’s
called um… – Ryder and Raindrop?
– Yeah. Survivalizers, Ryder and Raindrop. – Yeah! Yeah yeah.
– And, um, they recently did an episode… – I love that show!
– …on, uh, Dessert Survival. – Mhmm.
– So, I think they’ll answer your question. (African drum beats)
(birds chirping) – Before the last commercial break, we
set up this bivouac, ten thousand miles from civilization. Now a normal person would
be totally screwed at this point. But we’re not normal people.
– That’s right. We’re… Together – Survivalizers.
– That’s right. And we’re in luck today because I brought a satchel full of baked goods.
And boy am I parched, Raindrop. – Oh, don’t worry, Ryder! Because
today we’re gonna be finding out how to get water out of the dessert. And the
key to that, is to project your thirst thoughts out onto the universe? And then the universe
will provide, brother. – Right. Now, they call these moist for
a reason. ‘Cause there’s moisture in here. Don’t sniff it. All you gotta do is
you gotta gently hold this thing up and put it in your palm right here,
put your other palm on top here, give it a nice gentle squeeze. Uh, bigger squeeze.
Very tough squeeze! – I’m not seeing anything. The icing’s
coming down, but I don’t see any water. – This one’s unusually dry. They don’t
know how to bake there. – Why don’t you let me give it a try?
You got another cupcake in there? – You wanna give it a shot?
– You know the truth about me and this cupcake? – No.
– I am the cupcake. – That explains a lot.
(squirt noise) – Oh my goodness.
– There she blows! – Well, you got a moister one.
– Cakes, much like Mother Earth, are composed of layers.
– Ohhh. – Brimming with what the
ancients used to call, wawa. – Alright, so, I’ve retrieved this bamboo
shoot that I’ve turned into a makeshift straw. And all you gotta do is make sure
you jam it in there deep enough to break through to the water table.
– Do it! – And then you just, you gotta
drink. That’s prety much it. – Put some negative pressure on it.
(wheezing/sucking sounds) – Come on! (dry sucking sounds)
Nothing! Nothing except bamboo! – Hey, Ryder. I’m sensing a lot of negative
energy from you? I think it’s really impacting your ability to draw the wawa from the caca.
– Well… the water table’s dry. – You just gotta get down here and
you gotta feed the right energy into the cake. (whistles at cake)
And then you just, ohp! (water gushing noise)
– Wow. – That’s fresh caca wawa.
– Beginner’s luck. – Get in there!
– No, I don’t want any. – I love gummy bears. You know
why? Because they cointain the gelatinous tears of my friend, the earth Goddess, Gaia.
– You need to masticate ’em. And you wanna get ’em
in there, you’re basically gonna chew out the liquid.
– Yeah. You gettin’ any? – Mhm. Mhm. Mhm.
– Ah. Ryder, I’m sorry to say, I think that was saliva.
– Totally water. – I think the key is you
become one with the… – Listen.
– …water that is stored in those gummy bears that are sacrificing
themselves for you. – Okay, whatever. Just take a mouthful.
– No, I only need one. I just need one and I gotta form a relationship with it.
– What are you doing? (kissy noises)
– What’s wrong with you? – Shh.
– Eugh eughghgh. And that’s how you get water
out of dessert! You can stop now though! I get it! We get it! Agh! It’s over!
Let’s get outta here! Agh! Okay! Alright! (African drum beats) – Wow, lotta moisture in those desserts?
– Who woulda thought? – Lotta liquids in there!

I’m gonna give you a product demonstration see if you know some stuff about us. Gonna
open some mail with Jen as well. – Two clowns arguing over makeup. – Hey. Hey, Buster!
– Hey, don’t say hey to me while I’m putting on my makeup!
– You’re putting on MY makeup! – Oh really, how do you know?
– That’s mine. – Well, because it’s got like…
– It’s got my name on it… – It’s a white face and it’s got red lips?
– FloJo. It’s got FloJo’s name on it. – Well…
– Buster? You’re Buster, I’m FloJo. Just like the runner from the 80’s.
– Well my last name’s JoFlo so I got confused. – You’ve never told me that.
– Well, I’m puttin’ it on anyway. – Oh, gosh. Right on your lips? But
you’ve got that lip thing. I don’t want… – I’m puttin’ it on the inside too.
– Oh, you’re doin’ white-tongue. White-tongue, you can’t do
that anymore, it’s racist.
Your dreams say something about you. Let’s talk about that. ♪ (intro music) ♪ – Good mythical morning.
– Everybody dreams and I’m not talking about my dream of spending a long period
of my life alone in the Alaskan wilderness in a cabin, I’m talking about dreams that
happen when you’re sleeping, when you are – transported to another world.
– I get it– – That kind of thing.
– I have those too. And there are lots of people who think
that the things that you dream about say specific things about you and today we’re gonna
find out how well you know that, Link, as we play… So here’s what we’ve done, we’ve gone to a
dream dictionary on the interwebs to get what some things mean but I want to come
out and say, this is very subjective, okay? So this is gonna be a difficult game
’cause you don’t always get the same answers. I mean, what something means to
you might mean something else to somebody – else. So we’re giving you three lifelines to make it easy.
– But there’s also a baseline of – this is – a good place to start for what your dream may mean.
– Right, there – they are somewhat intuitive – but they are subjective.
– Okay. Your three lifelines are: Ask a Sheep… You can ask a sheep because you
count the sheep to go to sleep. – I was wondering why we had a sheep.
– You can have a Dream Within a Dream and that’s when we remove two dreams from
your dream. Are you still dreaming? – That doesn’t make sense but okay.
– And then we have a Sleep Talk Hint where I will sleep talk a hint for you. You can
imagine how well that’s gonna go. I’m usually better at that than you are
but I’m not gonna fall asleep here in – order to do it.
– Now, you get – if you get five out of eight of these, I have an incredible prize
for you. Uh, but for every one you get wrong, I’m gonna pinch you because
that’s how you wake up from a dream. – I get a pinch?
– A little pinch. – Okay, okay. – Here we go.
– So if I get it right, I get to pinch you. – Okay.
– Alright, let’s do this. You and Richard Nixon are walking through
a forest made of gummy bears when Tricky Dick turns to you and says, “Hey Link,
wouldya look at that.” (laughs) Sounds – like Jimmy Stewart.
– (crew laughs) Working on that. It’s a snake
that Tricky Dick is talking about. Very common. – …around friends at parties!
– Shia. – Yeah he was in it before he got crazy.
– Um, I mean I don’t see how snakes could – have anything to do with secrets. S…secrets.
– Oh, there is an S in it. Or s…seeking answers.
To s…subconscious questions. I’m going with ‘Hidden fears and worries
that are threatening you’ because there’s – no S’s anywhere in that.
– What a great start Link, you’re one for one! – Yes!
– That is right. – Yes!
– And I – you don’t get to pinch me, man! That’s not how it works. I’ll punch
you if you pinch me again. Just like that. Okay, here we go. You’re
lounging in a house that’s a weird mashup of your childhood home and Disneyland and
while riding on Space Mountain, you turn it into Space Fountain,
meaning you pee all over it. Like, urinating in real life or
dreaming about urinating? Dreaming about urinating. On Space Mountain? Uh, nope. Okay, what are my – what are my… …That could happen! Happened to me one time
as an adult, shouldn’t have admitted that. If you pee just a little in your sleep and then you
stop it, that doesn’t count. That’s – that’s fine. – Okay. Good.
– You don’t even have to tell anybody about that. – I did more than that.
– (crew member laughs) I’m gonna go ahead with Dream Within a Dream
because A, B, and C are kind of a toss-up. Okay, well then that leaves
you with A and B, Link. – 50/50.
– Cleansing emotions or disregard for authority. I mean, if the peeing on the
Space Fountain was in every one then I think B would make sense but
again, I’m gonna go with A. It’s cleansing… Link, you found a game that you
are a genius at. Two for two! It’s time for the big math exam and even
though you’re in your 30’s and you – haven’t been in school for over a decade–
– Yes, this dream! – you’re freaking out because you didn’t study!
And you’re naked! And you have an abacus! (laughter) – (crew laughs)
– I have this dream once a quarter. This is toughness. A deep desire to look at a problem.
Subconscious need to resolve a failing relationship. You know what? A hasn’t let
me down yet so I’m sticking with A, a deep desire to look at a problem
in a different way. – Ow!
– (laughs) It was C, you have old-fashioned views! – Old…how did – I don’t… how?
– Again, subjective. (Link) You have old-fashioned views?
(Rhett) You’ve been lucky so far. You’re tandem skydiving with a slightly
younger version of yourself. (laughs) – Done that.
– In the middle of your jump he says, “Sorry, not sorry” and releases you from the
harness. You begin to plummet to the earth. Is this like my son?
Like a younger version of myself? No. You don’t think that your son is a
younger version of you. Do I need to – explain how reproduction works?
– Well he’s– – He’s not a clone.
– He’s half of me. You mated with your wife and it
created a totally new DNA sequence. I don’t use ‘mate’ as the terminology for
it but um…I also don’t think that that part of the question has anything
to do with the answer. …and they gave me a DVD of it.
You’ve had that conversation. – Overpriced DVD. Always.
– (Rhett) Yeah. Falling. I mean, I think this is classic
losing control in my waking life. Uh, I’ve driven off many bridges in my sleep and
I know that’s why. I’m going with B. – With confidence.
– You’re right, Link. – Yeah.
– You should be a dream instructor. – Have you ever driven off a bridge?
– No. – Like the bridge is under
construction and then you just… and then you’re like, oh I’m
losing control of my actual life. You’re learning a lot about yourself.
Oh come on now! You don’t remember there being
a pickle farm in your backyard. – Ha, wrong!
– But you can’t pick any pickles if you’re not wearing overalls. Good thing your high school
principal is there handing them out. Overalls. – What?
– (laughter) Is anyone sane that they’ve –
have you dreamed that? – I dream this a lot.
– Don’t answer that. Unless you peed a little bit. – Yeah I’m an overalls most of – all the time.
– So cute. Uh… Give me a Sleep Talk Hint. (inaudible)…makes me so happy…
(inaudible) “I’m covered in barbecue sauce, I don’t
know why it makes me so happy. Why am I – covered in barbecue sauce?”
– You got it, brother. You were listening. Thanks for the helpful hint, here.
‘Sloppy attitude and incoherent thoughts’, A. – Yay! Almost pinched you – come on. No man, that
wasn’t the rules! Wow he’s got how many right? Well you made the rules! You’ve gotten four right, Link.
You just gotta get one more right and you’re a – dream genius. A dreanius.
– Yup. – You’re an orca wearing a diaper…
– Again. and feel the need to express yourself
musically. That must be what the giant xylophone is for. So you bang out an amazing
rendition of Selena Gomez’s ‘Hands to Myself’! It makes sense. I’m more likely to dream of overalls than a
xylophone. Have you dreamed of a xylophone? – I’ve dreamed of all these things.
– ‘A repressed need to express myself’, A once again. Why are you making ’em all A? – Don’t! Go low.
– Gotcha. – Don’t go low with the pinch, man.
– It was B, Link. It was ‘concerns for the environment.’ – Yeah, yeah, yeah. On that website that
you went to. I’m so concerned about the environment, I need to like tinkle
on some colored metallic keys. While walking on a bridge
made of donkey bones… – (both laugh)
– it begins to crumble beneath you and you gently float to the ground and are greeted by a
giant Ziploc bag with Steve Buscemi’s face on it. This is in the dictionary, man! (Link) It’s a Ziploc bag.
(Rhett) This is not Oxford’s dictionary, trust me. You know how that is. You’re in there and
you’re like, I should get the name brand, I don’t want to spill.
That happens to me a lot. A lot of anxiety when I go to the grocery store.
Just giving you some time to think, Link. – I’ll let the sheep think.
– Oh! – (Link baaing) Bring in the sheep!
– (Rhett) We have an actual sheep. – (Chase baaing)
– The things you guys go to – resources. – (Rhett) I don’t know what form you got.
– (Link) Look, it’s a dirty sheep! – (baaing)
– Why you so – why – – (laughter)
– You hear that? Why you so dirty, sheep? I live outside, in a farm. – Look like a beige sheep.
– (crew laughs) – It’s not that dirty.
– Alright sheep, help me out man. Uh, I like to keep my energy in
a Ziploc bag. That sounds like… – You reserve energy?
– Yeah, my reserved energy. (laughs) That’s why there’s Ziploc
bags all over your desk. – All over the farm.
– All over the farm. Alright, I’m – I’m trusting the – the sheep
has never let me down. – Link! You’re a dream
– (Rhett & Link) genius! – (Chase baaing)
– (crew laughs) Where’s his prize? Where’s his prize?! Whoa! – What the crap?!
– It’s a dream catcher! – I didn’t see that hanging up there, for real!
– And it came from the ceiling! – Now, can the sheep–
– What?! Hey, can the sheep get on this and it take
him back up like Pink in the Grammys like – four years ago?
– No! It catches your dreams man, you’re – gonna get so many more dreams now!
– Woo! (laughs) – Congratulations, Link.
– I’m so happy! Thank you for liking, commenting, and uh
dreaming the best dreams that you can dream. This is gonna go on my rear view mirror.
