Which Fast Food Do Rats Prefer? (EXPERIMENT)

Which Fast Food Do Rats Prefer? (EXPERIMENT)


Yes, Internet,
we red your emails and we listened
to your voice messages, and now we’ll find out which fast-food burger
rats prefer.( music playing )Recently a video of a rat
in a fast-food restaurant
in China spread across the Internet
faster than you can say MSG. – Let’s watch it.
– MSG. Link:
World Star. Rhett:
Okay, so there you have it. If you’ve ever needed proof
that rats like fast food– But it did get us wondering
what kind of fast food do rats here
in America like? And the truth of the matter is, rats actually have a highly
developed tastebud sense. – Of course they do.
– In the tastebuds. So we have decided to put
those tastebuds to the test. To the rat zone! Here we are. This is Master Splinter. We are going to be
presenting him or her– we don’t really know–
I don’t wanna check– with two competing
fast-food options to see which one he prefers. Now, we’re going to
put him in this maze, which is basically
just one lane. That’s why we’re calling it
the “Fast Lane o’ Fast Food.” On opposing ends,
there will be two competing
fast-food dishes for Master Splinter
to decide between. Okay, on this side we’ve got the delectable Chick-fil-A
chicken sandwich. And over here we have
KFC’s Chicken Little. I think we should
acquaint him with each one just so he just sort of– – Yeah.
– Yeah, I’m not gonna– Let him know what’s there. Just don’t let him
eat it, though. Oh, gosh,
he gets really excited when you get him close
to chicken. – And then he–
– Okay, now. He smells both. Now we’re gonna put him
in the middle. Come on, rat man–
oh, of course. What? Master Splinter’s just
looking for the exit. Now, once he realizes he’s in a safe but
exit-less environment, then I think that he’s
going to decide to eat a chicken sandwich. Yeah, Chick-fil-A.
You know where it’s at. I don’t know why
I’m rooting for Chick-fil-A. I mean, just because
it’s on my side. Oh, he’s getting
himself clean. He’s cleaning his snout.
Getting ready for chicken. Is that a zoological fact? That’s a pre-chicken routine,
yeah. I always do that, you know,
wipe my face down before I get it greasy again. Oh-Oh, yeah! Yeah! Yes! – Yes, he–
– He did it. Okay, he ate it.
He ate a little bit. Master Splinter has chosen, Oh, look, he’s pushing
the bun off. – with zero influence from us,
– Look at him. the Chick-fil-A
chicken sandwich. ‘Cause he did check out
Chicken Little over here first. Science, guys. Here is the Taco Bell taco.
Here is the Del Taco taco. Link, why don’t you introduce
Master Splinter to yourself and also the tacos? – Hi.
– Oh, come on. – Come on.
– He knows. – He–
– He wants to be with you. Hello, I’m a dog person. Dogs have nothing to do
with your species. Neither friend nor foe. So that makes
me neutral as well. Okay, let him
smell the tacos. Start with
this one this time. Let’s just see if
it’s the one he gets
introduced to first. Okay, smell the Del. Smell the Del Taco. Oh, he’s wanting to go
after it. – Taco Bell.
– Oh, gah– Taco Bell
There it is. Set him in the middle. – I love the way he has
that moment.
– He’s just like… He has that moment, like he
knows the stage has been set. Oh, he’s going towards
the Taco Bell. Uh, he didn’t eat it.
He didn’t eat it. Link:
I would love for him
to check the Del Taco out and then make a decision. Hey, buddy,
Del Taco’s over there. He’s doing his
chicken face, by the way. He’s doing his getting ready
to eat cleaning thing. – You call it that chicken face?
– Chicken face. He’s doing chicken face,
which is a scientific term– Okay, now it’s getting
a little excessive,
Master Splinter. I mean, you’re going down
to the hip region. I don’t know about that.
You look great. Don’t worry about
yourself so much. Oh. Oh. Oh. Oh. Ooh. He has now acknowledged
the Del Taco taco. He’s eating it. He’s eating Del Taco taco. Rats prefer Del Taco!
The new slogan! Yes, Internet,
we red your emails and we listened
to your voice messages, and now we’ll find out which fast-food burger
rats prefer. You’re welcome. Okay, we’ve got the McDonald’s
Quarter Pounder with cheese
on this side. And over here we’ve got Wendy’s
Dave’s Single with cheese. Okay, calm down. Calm down. We need to tell him–
No, rat– That’s McDonald’s. This is not fresh,
but they’ve announced that they’re gonna make
their Quarter Pounders fresh. – And that’s Wendy’s.
– Okay, now… I wonder if they smell
the freshness of the beef. Well, really, do rats
prefer square patties – or circle patties?
– Or round– I feel like
we’re doing a service for the scientific community
at this point, not just the people. Man, he’s so– he gets so
excited about his choices. But he plans it out. Yeah, this is like when you’re
out with your friends and you’re driving
on one of those roads that’s got both a Wendy’s
and a McDonalds. You know those roads. He’s checking out
the Mickey D’s. He’s not eating yet, guys.
He’s smelling. – He’s disciplined.
– He’s disc– – He’s more disciplined
than a human.
– Discerning. I’ve never just
smelled a burger. – I’ve always just gone in
for the bite.
– Right. Now he’s gonna do
chicken face.
There– Here he goes. Just let him do it.
He likes to come to the middle,
It’s showboating a little bit. When you’re gonna
chicken face, you’re front and center. All right, chicken face
is getting a little intimate. It’s like he’s getting ready
to go on a date with a burger. Now you’re going on your back? It’s so excessive.
You don’t need to do this. We understand.
Chicken face is important. Chicken body is important. But now it’s time
to eat a burger. Stop touching
your frickin’ face
and eat a burger. There we go. Here we go. Yep, yep, yep. – Wendy’s!
– He did it. He’s eating the Wendy’s. Master Splinter,
and rats everywhere, prefer Wendy’s
over McDonald’s! Wendy’s Dave’s Single
with cheese. Oh, wow. This has been so special. Yes– Oh, gosh,
I really smudged it. Okay, and by the way, we’re absolutely
not suggesting that any of these places
have rats. We just scientifically
determined which food rats prefer. And because Master Splinter
did such a wonderful job, we are going to award him
with a custom made cheese trophy! Set it right in the middle. Here you go,
Master Splinter. We’ve learned he won’t
eat it immediately. We’ll just be sitting around
watching him do his chicken face and hopefully he’ll eat
the trophy one day. And you keep watching,
because we’re about to get in on the next YouTube craze–
soap cutting. Rhett:Raise your hand
if you’re a Mythical Beast.
Now use that hand
to type mythical.store
into your search barbecause that’s
where you can buy
this “I Am A Mythical Beast”
shirt right now.

  1. 2:39 dogs are not neutral because my dog stormy caught a rat in her mouth one time

  2. my dog is in the room and he look concerned everytime the mouse noise came on

  3. If people had no concept of what GMM is about, Rhett and Link would look absolutely psychotic in this.

  4. I love mr. Splinter he has a good taste 🙂

  5. i hope you guys make another video but with 3 rats for more accurate data. And the rat chose the opposite fast foods that i would usually eat! XD

  6. "Stop touching you freakin face and,EAT A BURGER

  7. DEFINITELY a boy rat lol

  8. this is surprisingly entertaining there should be more episodes like this hahaha

  9. Thinking of how to perform this experiment properly was great revision for my behaviour exam, thanks guys!

  10. Does Link know how to snap?

  11. Rats are cute.

    Only when they’re from a pet store.

  12. 2:41 actually some breeds of dogs where made to hunt rats so sorry for the bad news

  13. If a rat likes your food I don’t think that you should take it as a compliment

  14. I have four rats 🐀 they love to watch your vids

  15. I thought I would never say this but (inhales) I WNAT A PET RATE NOW AHHHHHH

  16. Aww the rats in this video are so cute

  17. rats dont like cheese that much, mine wont even eat it

  18. chicken face I'm dying

  19. That rat is eating better than I do

  20. How to combat Wendy’s insults:
    ʀᴀᴛs ʟɪᴋᴇ ᴡᴇɴᴅʏ's ғᴏᴏᴅ ʙᴇᴛᴛᴇʀ ᴛʜᴀɴ ɪ ᴅᴏ

  21. rhett getting excited when master splinter eats food is the kind of energy I need in 2019

  22. I hope I was that rat..I’m dying of hunger right now xD
    I’m not poor tho…

  23. "Stop touching your frickin face and eat burger" xD

  24. It's a scurry-through

  25. I love rodents i have three hamsters

  26. Rats are one of the cleanest animals.

  27. The rat wasnt mexican enough for taco bell😂

  28. What has the world become?

  29. Master Splinter is definitely a male rat. That area where his tail is has a bulge (balls) attached to it (wouldn’t exist on female)

    I have an albino rat of my own named Neville, based off Neville Longbottom, and he is very good and very smart, just like a dog or cat. They know what’s good for them and what is not (most of the time) and are super clean.

    I love how unique rats personalities are to each rat. Neville is a sassy man, but also acts like a (OVERLY spoiled) street rat or pack rat. He is my everything and I wish people knew how amazing rats are. Neville has changed my life for the better and he always stays by my side when roaming free (which is most of the time… my apartment is his). Knows my emotions very well. Knows how to communicate with me easily. I can go on.

    Anyways, I love rats. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

  30. Is this their first episode where they didn’t say “let’s talk about that”?

  31. Rats are adorable to me

  32. Is no one going to talk about how cheese is really bad for rats?

  33. My rats like KFC, and Popeyes 😀

  34. Master splinter looks like he eats well already, probably part of his hesitation…

  35. he is a male and the cleaning means hes very uncomfortable and scared.

  36. This is why I subscribed

  37. is that a pet rat?1

  38. 😂😂😂 Rhett getting mad at the rat for grooming excessively

  39. I think Master Splinter was taking time to wash the human smell off each time lol

  40. 1:02 all I have to say

  41. This is what I watch at 2am

  42. Your rat is so cute

  43. I noticed he ate the second food he investigated every time.

  44. That rat is a boy I know from experience

  45. I have 3 pet rats and they are SOOOOOO cute!!!!

  46. My snake would be so damn happy to eat that fat nasty rat!

  47. Pen pineapple apple pen.

  48. Even a rat won't eat McDonald's

  49. I have 4 adorable rats

  50. STOP TUTCHING YUR FACE AND EAT A BURGER!!!

    easy Rhett,dont scare the kids.

  51. WOW, there were some MAJOR edits when Link was given and held the rat. They probably did several takes and because these segments were so rushed in Season 13, they cut it all out. It's too bad. I would have liked to have seen how things REALLY went down (like in the good old days) and not just the rished finished product.

  52. Dogs hunt rats in country land as well as the big city

  53. That's a HE if I've ever seen one, Rhett

  54. thank the rats for saving the universe iukwim

  55. This is a prime example of how and why rats are so clean as opposed to the common misconception. Literally all they do is clean themselves

  56. Funny how rhett doesn't like cats but he can hold a rat lol

  57. Chicken face he’s showboating I peed again

  58. The thorough rat knowledge in these comments makes me so proud of my fellow humans for being so caring

  59. He chose the second one every time

  60. They should have compared all the winners to see in the end which food is mostly liked by rats

  61. You guysa skipped it

  62. He pretty dang cute 🐁

  63. Me: sees rat
    My mind: if you don't click on that cute thing go to bed
    Me: I AM DOIN IT EITHER WAY
    Mind: ITS 2:00AM
    Me: look at da wittwe bwaby

  64. did i just see Rhett become angry at a rat???

  65. master splinter doesnt like carbs

  66. Wendy’s will now serve pet rats for free XD

  67. Awww I love their little faces

  68. In the opinion of a rat, if its food and its close, eat.

  69. He’s gonna have fun with that trophy

  70. this show video is nice hugs from berlin

  71. only cavier jejejejejejejeje

  72. Of course he liked the Del Taco, it has Fres h A Vaca Doo

  73. I like the opposite to what he picked

  74. rhett is me holding a rat

  75. Tacobell is just like literally the most amazing delicious fast food place ever

  76. when the squeaky noises played, my rats all stopped what they were doing and looked at me through their cage bars

  77. I have never seen two adults so perplexed about the behavior of a rodent. Also for future note every male rat I've owned has had its head sized testicles so seeing if its a boy or girl is not hard at all.

  78. How did I miss this episode?? I loved this. Bring Master Splinter back for another taste test!!

  79. Omg I love rats😍 they are so cute and seriously smart

  80. Lol definitely a boy, immediately obvious 😂
    I saw the taco and I was like nooo don't let him eat the tomatoes!

  81. all of them! At least mine XD if it foods they'll try to eat it.

  82. when they move the doors and he just FREEZES lmao he's like "oh damn I smell both at once! what do?!"

  83. he has to clean every time you pick him up XD tbe oil from our skin messes up their fur and they have to stop and wash lol

  84. that rat is adorable

  85. Never going to those places ever again!

  86. 5:10 I think this shows rhett’s parenting skills

  87. Rats! I was hoping for turtles at the end.

  88. Rats prefer Del Tacos😂
