Can we make some awesome
commercials in 30 seconds flat? Let’s talk about that. ♪ (theme music) ♪ – Good Mythical Morning!
– We have a track record of making television commercials, specifically
of the local commercial variety – Mmhm.
– over the years. We even had a little – television show that we made
– Oh, we did, huh? – a little while ago.
– I almost forgot! … about that. Today we’re gonna make
some commercials of a slightly different variety under slightly more
high-pressurized… environs. That’s right. Over on the YouTube AdBlitz
channel, our good friend Harley from Epic Meal Time has come up with some
rules for making amazing commercials. And today we’re gonna use those
rules to play a game that we call: (Rhett, over dramatic music)
The Random Commercial Challenge! Okay, here’s how it works:
We have two hats as you can see. – Two hats.
– In this hat, we have sheets of paper. Written on them are Harley’s rules of
awesome commercials. Basically, ingredients that, if you have one of these
to promote whatever product you have, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be a great
commercial. In this hat, we have written on sheets of paper products that we have
to promote. We do not know what these products are, but we are gonna pull out a
product and a method for promoting said product, put the two together, and
each of those is a round or a challenge – Right.
– that we’re gonna have to individually – create a commercial.
– Right. And here’s how we’re gonna do that. We have a green screen set up
right over here off of the set and we will go over there. We can grab the prop,
which will probably be the thing that we’re trying to sell, and some
other have been made available to us. – Mmhm.
– Then we have 30 seconds– a live 30 seconds– to actually make our
commercial. And then we can do whatever we want to in post. We can add music, we
can change the background– that’s why we’re doing it on the green screen–
we can do effects… ’cause we will be sort of directing these commercials
in post. So we may not know– – I don’t know how to do effects.
– exactly how it’s all gonna come out. Okay, so just to summarize: Once we get
everything ready and we’re on the green screen, you’re gonna count down and then
we have 30 seconds to perform our – commercial live.
– Yep. And then do our little
stuff to it afterwards. And then you’re gonna tell us
who made the best commercial. – Or what’s your favorite commercial is.
– We’ve got a number of rounds. – All right, round one!
– I’m gonna go first. – Okay!
– Just because… can I? – Sure!
– Of course I can! All right, so I’m gonna reachy reachy
reachy and feely feely and pully pully… – All right, first…
– Why do you put the Y on the end – of all the words?
– I am promoting the product of a yardstick, and the way that I am promoting
it using Harley’s rule of an awesome commercial: Nothing says “buy me” like
a good old dose of American patriotism. – American patriotism…
– Selling a yardstick! – Selling a yardstick.
– Good luck with that, Link! (Link) Thank you. ♪ (harp strums) ♪ (Rhett) Okay. Link, you have
your yardstick I see. (laughs) (Link) Yeah, gimme– (laughs)
and my flag. Gimme a second. Okay, Link, you have 30 seconds
starting in three, two, one, go. – ♪ (country music) ♪
– Woosh! Hello! You don’t know me and it doesn’t matter. I’m an American and I
Iike to measure things just like you, fellow American. Check this out: it’s a
stick that’ll measure… approximately a yard. If you wanna measure less than a
yard, it’s got increments on it. And you can use those, Americans, just like me. You
can be like me, and I know you wanna be. If you wanna measure something larger
than a yard, I don’t know how to help you. – (Rhett) Time’s up! (claps)
– (Link) How was that? That was good, Link! Almost perfect 30
seconds and I wanna buy a yardstick. – Can I have this one?
– Yeah. Do you think that I can – greenscreen a shirt back on?
– (laughs) – ‘Cause I think I’m gonna–
– No, that’ll lose the effect! – I am going to regret that choice.
– Okay, now it’s my turn. – I got a zit on my shoulder.
– Please don’t point that out. – I’m gonna have to cover… okay.
– Mmkay. So I’ve got a rule here. The first thing I’m gonna
be selling is… a log. – (both laugh)
– I’m gonna be selling a log and I’m gonna be using the rule: A good tagline
makes your product unforgettable. – Good tagline. All right!
– Okay, here we go. Get out there, Log Boy! That’s what
I’m gonna call you if you do good at this. ♪ (harp strums) ♪ (Link) Take your place. You’re gonna
have 30 seconds for your ad beginning in – three, two… – ♪ (dramatic music) ♪
– Hello. Would you… like a log? Would you? (laughs) What would you do if you had a log?
Would you burn it? Would… you burn it? Would you? Would you like a log? You
could hit somebody with it, if you’re mad at somebody. If I gave you this log,
would you hurt someone with it? (laughs) What would you do with
a log? Would you like a log? – (all laugh)
– (Link) What? Okay, time. – (laughs)
– (Link) I was so– Get over here! I was so mesmerized, I totally
forgot about the time. – (Rhett, laughing) Yeah.
– I was like, when is the actual ad – gonna start?
– (Rhett and crew laugh) – (Rhett) That was the ad!
– That was like– – I said the word “wood” about 17 times!
– I loved it. – Um… wow. Is there gonna be like…
– Every time I say “wood” something’s – gonna happen.
– Oh, really? You don’t know what yet? – (laughs) Yeah.
– We’ll have to figure that out, but just the sheer repetition I think was
the strength of that one. – Yeah. Hm.
– I’d like to put a shirt on, so I’m ready – to go for another round.
– Okay, sure. All right? So I’m gonna pick my
product. Here it is: a hubcap. Oh. Wow, you got a lot of… hold on,
don’t go back into the same thing! – What?
– Oh, you picked– Oh, good. – I’m sorry, I thought you were–
– I’m going into the other thing. – Yeah.
– All right, here’s a long one: You can bet that if a celebrity is using your product,
everyone else will want to use it too. – Celebrity endorsement of hubcap.
– Okay. All right. – (Link) Plus a shirt.

for you and goes into everything. – (Rhett) Time! Well done, Link!

a point of inspiration. Okay. In three, two… – ♪ (cheerful music) ♪
– (Rhett, gruffly) Hey. I’m a chinchilla. You know they say the thing that separates
the animals from the humans is that humans use toilet paper. Not me. I like to put my
little hands on this and wipe my butt. I got the cleanest butt in the animal
kingdom because I use toilet paper just like the humans. So take it from
me, a chinchilla: use toilet paper. Wipe your butt with it. (Link) Cut! Come over. – (Rhett) Okay.
