The Viral Video World of Rhett & Link

Intertainers, Web Personalities, Webby Winners, and IADAS Judges Rhett & Link are experts in the craft of the viral video. Here are 5 highlights from their digital video repertoire.

Breaking Bad: The Middle School Musical

Following up on their popular productions of Star Trek and Superman, this cringe-comedy of children earnestly performing age-inappropriate theater material is at its most earnest in Breaking Bad: The Middle School Musical. Rhett & Link won the 2014 People’s Choice Online Film & Video Webby in Comedy: Individual Short or Episode for this smart adaptation of one television’s smartest shows.

Ojai Valley Taxidermy

Rhett & Link’s runaway 2011 mega hit for Ojai Valley Taxidermy has more than 17 million views and counting. This commercial spawned the man-meme himself: Chuck Testa? Yep!

Epic Rap Battle: Nerd vs. Geek

Leave it to Rhett & Link to break down the differences between geeks and nerds. For the unschooled there’s this 2105 Webby Winning video in which the duo spit rhymes and drop knowledge on how nerds are super smart and geeks are also smart, but also kinda cool in an ironic way. It’s hip-hop, Rhett & Link style.

Red House Furniture

This video was analyzed to death upon its release in 2009, but its point remains the same: Red House Furniture doesn’t discriminate. It sells furniture for black people and white people. And Hispanic people. And all people.

2 Guys 600 Pillows (Backwards) - Rhett & Link

In a feat of video editing mastery, “2 Guys 600 Pillows”  was awarded not one, but 2 Webby Awards in 2011. Created for Carpenter Co. and SleepBetter.org (who supplied all the pillows), this video came about from a suggestion by YouTube user hotshot4525  as part of Rhett & Link’s Submit a Song Idea Series.
