7 Ways To Relax Like A Pro

, , 100 Comments


-Today, we’re gonna relaaaaaaaax.
-Let’s talk about that…? ♪ (theme music) ♪ -Good mythical morning!
-Today a new sketch is live on the Rhett and Link channel as part of
Sketchtober, where we’re putting out five– count ’em–five sketches, one each
Thursday for the entire month of October! -Woohoo! -So there’s more to come.
This week’s sketch is called, “Campin’.” -I really feel like we’re connecting with
our ancestors. You know, like, they were “one with nature.”
-Theywerenature. -That’s whatweare right now.
Weare nature. -(caveman voice) We nature! ♪ (drum beat) ♪ -So, head on over to the Rhett and Link
channel and check it out. -(reciting together) Patty cake,
patty cake… -(Rhett) We’re…
-(reciting together) …baker’s men. -Because on Thursdays, we like to bake
pies. We reach out to you on Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter in search of the
freshest, most perfect question ingredients. And then we take those
ingredients, and we lovingly mix them together in a bowl. We then create a
doughy, delicate “answer crust,” that we fill with your question ingredients.
Then we place them in the oven at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, until
the fully-formed answer pie is ready. (yelling) But don’t touch it just yet! It’s gotta sit on the windowsill to cool. -Hummmmm…
This week we asked you guys for relaxation advice, and we’ve got some
“answer pies” for y’all. -We do! We got a question from
(pronouncing with difficulty) “Dah-rah” O’Connor, who asks…
-Question mark? -…”How do you relax with a
hectic schedule?” -(Reading together) “How do you
relax with a hectic schedule?” -All questions now in unison! -Um, easy, easy answer to this.
We both do this a lot. Um, take a break from our hectic schedules
by surfing! -Yes! Uh-huh.
-Super-relaxing, become one with -nature in the ocean. But it’s not quite that simple,
-(surfer voice) California, maaan. because there’s other surfers there.
-Yeah, lot’s of ’em! -And where there’s people, there’s
stress. One time recently–you were not there…
-Yeah. -I went to Surfrider Beach in Malibu, a
very popular place. -Thanks for not inviting me.
-And there was like 80 surfers out there. And I’m out there, stand-up paddle
boarding, ok? -(Sarcastically) It’s the coolest way to
surf! Standing up! -Well, you really draw
attention to yourself. Because, well, you’re standing above
the water, and everybody else is floating, waiting in line to get
waves. But then, as I’m waiting in line to get up there, I noticed, ah!
One kindred spirit. And an old man shows up on a
stand-up paddle board. -Usually old men are all on
stand-up paddle boards. -And this dude, this dude’s fit, and
he looks like a drill instructor with like a crew cut. Like white hair
crew cut though. -Oh, yeah, the best!
-He’s like talking to people and saying things like…
-(Rough, deep voice) “Hey, man!” -…Skipping everyone and
getting to the front.
-(Rough deep voice) “Hang-ten.” And, ah, so then he just starts taking waves. But all of a sudden, I
hear, um, he’s yelling. -Oh.
-He’s yelling at somebody, and I look, and it is a man in the water on a long
board who is just as old as he is. Like, gray-haired dude. And he’s like,
(forceful voice) “You dropped in on me! You cut me off on my wave!
Don’t you ever do that again! I will SPEAR you with this thing!” -Whoa!
-And you reallycankill a person with a paddle board if you hit ’em with it. Trust me,
I’ve done it by accident many times. No, I haven’t!
-Notkilled. -I’vealmostkilled people. I really have.
-We haven’t killed anyone. In any circumstances.
-So it wasnotan empty threat… -Except that one time.
-…but it was a stressful situation because I was really close to this guy.
My kindred spirit. The rooster man, with his chest puffed out, like,
paddle-boarding around. And he’s like, “I will knock you in the
head if you do that again.” And then he starts using all this colorful
language that I’m not gonna repeat. -Droppin’ bombs.
-You know, telling the guy what he should do with himself and all types of stuff.
-Wow. -And it’s like, I just start backing
outta there because I feel guilty by association. Like, we’re not–just
because we’re both standing up, and we’re the people that everybody’s
looking at, doesn’t mean that we are in cahoots!
-Right! -And, um, but the other guy’s not saying
anything. I feel horrible for him. -Yeah, mmhmm.
-And then all of a sudden, outta nowhere, he’s like, he looks up at ‘im, and he’s
like, (low, threatening voice) “I am a Navy Seal. I will kill you with
my bare hands.” -Oh gosh.
-And, and part of me was like, “This is so weird…
-You were like, “I’m going to, I’m going home.”
-I–I–I gotta paddle outta here!” But the other part of me was like,
“That’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever heard anybody say in person.”
-He probably didn’t–he probably justsaysthat.
-No, he… -He probably just goes to that line.
-No, then he jumped up, and he killed the man with his bare hands.
-(scoffs) Oh-ho! Really? But he did not. But here’s the question… -He didn’t, but it freaked me out.
He could have. -How does that answer Darragh’s question:
“How do you relax with a hectic schedule?” -Don’t go surfing!
-Oh! Ok, don’t go surfing! Alright, now it’s time to visit another
weird website in a segment we call, “The Internet is a Weird Place.”
Thanks to our friends over at Squarespace. And today we’re going to be visiting a
site that requires you to do nothing. -Oh, sounds good! DoNothingFor2Minutes–
the number 2–Minutes.com -Let’s go there now. Oh, lookit!
Oceans theme. -Hmm, very nice. Relaxing.
-Do nothing for two minutes. Here’s the timer. Just relax and listen to the
waves. Don’t touch your mouse or keyboard.
-Well, that’s the first thing I’m gonna do. You don’t tell me what to do, website!
-Alright, so it just reset it. -I’m not gonna listen to you.
-Reset two minutes. -Who are you!? Why do you have
authority in my life? -It’s trying to get you to relax, Rhett.
-I don’t wanna relax. -Well, y-you can do anything you want,
like… -That’s two minutes!
Two minutes of my life that I could do something like–
touch the mouse again! -Oh, but now it reset again. I mean,
I’m gonna… -What?
-…I’m just gonna get on my phone. -Oh!
-It doesn’t know that I’m on my phone. -Oh, that’s a good thing.
-But that defeats the purpose. This is kind of like meditation,
but forced. -Ah, well you know what? That kind of
reminds me: You may remember a few weeks ago, ah–famous wrestlers from the ’90s.
-(in unison) Randy and Dandy Mandy! -Yes!
-Yeah, they got that VHS series, and we looked at the video where they…
-“How to Eat Not Like a Dork!” -“How to Not Eat Like a Dork!”
You remember it! -Yeah!
-Well, you know what? Lucky for us, they
have handled, or tackled, a lot of different issues…
-Like body slams. Issues. -…including meditation. Including
meditation. -Right!
-They’ve got a series on mediation. -I remember it!
-You do! -We should show ’em a clip!
-And we found that tape too. Here it is. ♪ (intense rock music) ♪
-(Rhett in tough, growling voice) I’m Randy! -(Link in similar voice) And I’m Dandy!
-(In unison) We’re the Mandy Brothers! Randy and Dandy Mandy! -(Link/Dandy) And we’re gonna teach you how to
meditate not like a dork. -The key to meditation is to clear your
“mind dumpster” of all that “thought
garbage”! -And the only way to clear your mind is to
repress everything! -Repress it hard, brother!
-(Unison) Re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re! -Don’t deal with your emotions!
Squish ’em into a bloody pulp! -Get some stuff to symbolize your
thoughts. I like cans! -I like teddy bears! -This is a thought I just had about lunch.
(slapping can) I should’ve ordered nachos! -This is the regret I feel for dumping
Sandy! (Yells like a maniac)
She’s pretty cool, now that I think about it. -This is a thought I just had
about half nelsons. (Can makes unsatisfying splatting
sounds on Rhett/Randy’s chest) -A half nelson is just a waste of half
of a full nelson. (laser SFX) (Rhett/Randy grunting,
Link/Dandy yelling as if electrocuted) -This is a thought I had about the way
that Sandy used to push her hair back behind her ear.
(laser SFX)
(Link/Dandy grunting and growling) -Come back to me Sandy. We can piece it together. (Starts crying)
-Come on, man! Suck those tears back in. That’s pure strength fallin’ outta your
head holes, man! (Link/Dandy whining pathetically)
-(Rhett/Randy) It’s okay. -(Link/Dandy mournfully) Sandy!
-(Rhett/Randy softer) It’s gonna be okay, man.
-(Link/Dandy whining) I messed up the bear.
-Yeah, you did. -(Link/Dandy weeping) I don’t know how
to fix the bear. -(Rhett/Randy softening his voice more)
We can get another bear, man. -(Link/Dandy inconsolably) I don’t want
another bear! I wantthisbear! -But, but…that bear has no
significance. We just bought it for you to rip it for the video.
-(Link/Dandy crying again) It was special to me! It’s a special bear!
(Link/Dandy moaning and crying) -(Rhett/Randy with tough voice again)
I’m Randy! -(Still crying) And I’m Dandy!
-(Unison) We’re the Mandy brothers. Randy and Dandy Mandy! -(Link/Dandy in faux tough
voice) And you just learned how to meditatewithoutbeing a dork!
-Not like a dork! -(Link/Dandy whining) Not like a dork.
-Not like a dork! You’re gonna be fine, man. -(Rhett normal) I really hope Dandy
figures things out with Sandy. It seems like he really misses her.

-Our next question comes from Madison Ostermeier, who asks, “How do I relax
when I have to pee, but I don’t want to get up?”
-Oh! That’s simple. -(Link) We’ve been wearing these! We
didn’t have to get up; we just got up to show you. We could stay right here.
-That’s right. We always have those on. -Adult diapers. Next question. Preston
Forrest: “How do you relax?” -Well, you know, besides surfing, I find
that I like to go to my go-to reese–res-s…
-(Link imitating Rhett’s pronunciation) Recess-source.
-Resource, when I wanna learn how to do anything. And that is, of course,
wikiHow! And we went to the wikiHow: “How to Relax” page. The advice was so
mind-blowingly good… -(Mockingly) Oh, yeah! So good!
-…that we thought we had to take it verbatim and just demonstrate it for
you. So here it is. ♪ (Calming music) ♪ -(Rhett in calming voice) How to Relax:
According to wikiHow. -(Rhett) Stay away form social media
outlets. Try to spend some time away from these things to help reduce your
anxiety. -Hey, which filter do you think highlights
the warmth of my beard tone? -Stay away!
♪ (Video game chime) ♪ -(Rhett) Take active steps toward making
time where you are unreachable. -Hey, man, there’s something on your
shirt. I can reach it. -I’m unreachable.
♪ (Video game chime) ♪ -(Rhett) Create “your” space. It doesn’t
matter if it’s a chair in a corner and some lit incense or a room full of
golden and burgundy pillows. -Why you paintin’ one pillow gold and
one pillow burgundy? -Cuz I’m relaxing!
♪ (Video game chime) ♪ -(Rhett) Give hugs. Go on the positive
offensive and reach through to people who seem down and negative. -(Sadly) I’m so down and negative. (Bodily impact noise)
-(Forcefully) I’m on the positive offensive, man!!
♪ (Video game chime) ♪ -(Rhett) A little animal time can go a
long way. If you don’t have your own pet, consider borrowing your friend’s dog. (Rhett breathing hard)
-Hey, what are you doing, man? -I’m just borrowing him, man!
♪ (Video game chime) ♪ -(Rhett) This has been How to Relax:
According to wikiHow. -Now you have no excuse for not relaxing!
-Thanks for liking, commenting, subscribing, and relaxing.
-You know what time it is! -Hi, I’m Maya.
-And I’m Kaylee. -(Unison) And we’re from British
Columbia, Canada. And it’s time to spin the Wheel of
Mythicality, (Canadian accent) eh! -Make sure you check out the new Campin’
sketch on the Rhett and Link channel: Youtube.com/RhettandLink. And the link is
in the description. -Click through to Good Mythical More.
We’re gonna openyourmythical mail, including these custom-made Good Mythical
Morning plush dolls! Amazing! Take a peek. (Beepy voice) Peek! Peek!
-(Rhett reading) Two short-necked giraffes. -(Nasal voice) Well, Bob, another day on
the ha–savanna. -(Gravelly voice) I wonder what those
leaves would taste like. -Oh, you mean… -I only get the drippings from other
long-necked giraffes… -Giraffes, yeah.
-…which is a typical giraffe. They all have long necks, which is weird
that we don’t. -They look so tasty. If we could
just stretch our necks. Let’s try! (Pitious moan)
-Nope. Aw, gimma a boost. -(Uncertain) Okay.
-Ah, lean forward. Lean forward. Not gonna be safe, ok? (Rhett giggles)
-(Link) I’m going up. (Rhett makes rising nasal tones) -(Link) I’m getting it! -Now, how weird is it going to be when,
like, my wife rolls over in bed, and I’m, like, snuggling with myself.
-(Jen giggles) Oh, gosh. -Well…I guess you’re saying that you’re
gonna do that, huh?

    I was eating an apple, and at the moment when Rhett snatches the dog I choked on a bite of apple. Laughing, I might add.

    Now we know where Cotton Candy Randy got his origins: he was Dandys wrestling brother. After Dandy quit wrestling to finally win back Sandy, Randy decided to dedicate his life to whispering sweet nothings into childrens (and Rhetts) ears, but he always felt the sting of Dandy leaving him. Because Link and Dandy look eerily similar, Cotton Candy Randy feels the need to project his feelings of anger and betrayal on Link.

    It all makes sense.
