Commercial Styled Food Taste Test

Commercial Styled Food Taste Test

– Is the food in commercials
too good to be true? – Let’s talk about that. (alarm clock ringing)
(upbeat music) Good mythical summer! – Have you ever seen a
commercial for a burger and it looks so dang good that you want to reach into your television
and take a bite of it? It’s got the perfect grill marks, the veggies are crisp and refreshing, the bun is perfectly round and plump. It’s calling your name. Eat me Link, devour me big boy. – Big boy, huh? – (whispers) Big boy. – But the food you buy at
a restaurant never looks as good as that commercial and have you ever wondered how they do it. Have you ever also wondered how the commercial version
would actually taste? Well, we’re about to find out. It’s time for that commercial
food is too good to be true, but we’re gonna eat it and
hope it won’t make us spew. – We have learned some of the
tricks used by food stylists to make food look amazing on camera and we are actually going to
employ some of those techniques in recreating items here at the desk, but then we are also
going to eat those items. – Of course we are. We’re gonna watch some
of these commercials that feature stylized
food, but we’re not saying that they actually use
these particular techniques. We’re just showing them
to you for reference. – Yeah we couldn’t know for sure, but this also goes without saying, please do not try this
at home, let us do it. – [Rhett and Link] Round one. – Okay, let’s kick things off
with one of my favorite meals. It’s the only thing I know
how to prepare myself, cereal. Let’s take a look at this commercial and tell me your cereal looks this good. – Let’s do this. – [Announcer] New cinnamon
Frosted Flakes are finally here. Sweet cinnamon and the
frosted crunch you love. – Well? – Tastes like victory
team, tastes like victory. – They’re gr-r-reat! – That family is way too
aggressive about breakfast. (Link laughs) – Well when you add
cinnamon to a frosted flake, I guess that’s what happens. Here’s the deal, real
milk makes cereal soggy. This has been sitting here a little bit and it just looks, it looks a little… – [Rhett] Yep. – Oh gosh, once you get into it and this stuff sits on set all day while they’re trying to
get the tiger to cooperate. – Right. – You know, so what do they do? They use glue, at times. Which allows the cereal
to float on the top. – So, I need to put the…
– Cereal second. – The cereal in second which is not the way you typically would do it. – Yeah, you want the
cereal to be the star, you don’t want it to get all soggy and sink down at the bottom. – [Rhett] Oh, look at that. – [Link] Look at that milk. – [Rhett] That would look
so good in slow motion. – Okay, good, there ya go. – [Rhett] Take it a
little bit higher, right. There it goes. – [Rhett] That’s good. It smells so good too. – We got some normal, school glue. – It makes me want cereal. – And then just throw
your flakes on top of it. I think we’re gonna want
to push a little bit. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
whoa, that’s enough. See and then the food stylist
comes in and he’s like, oh I’m gonna push this down
and I’m gonna pull this up and I’ll make a little volcano. Put these two pieces on there. – You missed your calling, Link. Ummm. – Never too late. – Yeah, look at that. It looks good from the side. You see how it’s got,
you see how that, like, has a nasty sort of milk film that forms? That doesn’t happen in the places that I haven’t moved this around yet. – Doesn’t taste bad though. – We’ll see how this tastes. It looks great. – Let’s eat like they do in commercials. – Go deep. – Oh, goodness. – Now dink it. – And sink it. It’s like I’m back in kindergarten. (both retching) – [Rhett and Link] Round two. – Most soda commercials
make the soda look crisp, refreshing, and full of bubbles. Unless you’re a Pepsi, then you just hire Kendall Jenner to start a revolution. Let’s take a look at a Sprite commercial that has a cool song from BOB. ♪Ice can go pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop ♪ ♪ Likes to pop, pop,
pop, pop, pop, pop, pop ♪ – Look at all those
bubbles, bubbles, bubbles. – According to BOB, that Sprite is flat. – Really? Oh, a music joke. – Because he thinks the Earth is flat. – Oh! Not…a flat Earth joke. – Yeah, yeah. – Oh, not like a flat note. – You stick around long
enough, you’ll figure it out. I’ll learn about…you
believe in the flat Earth. – Okay, so as you can see. This is just what regular
Sprite that was just poured, seconds ago, looks like. It’s pretty bubbly, it kinda
makes me wanna drink it, but it’s not as bubbly as it can be. One of the tricks that advertisers use is they use a combination
of antacid tablets, effervescent, and dish soap. So the order of operations here, Link, is go ahead and drop the
antacid into the bottom. – Just gonna put one of those for now, maybe we’ll need a second one. – And then you pour the Sprite and then pretty, as soon
as it gets to the top, do a teeny bit of dish soap on the surface and that’ll actually make
some big bubbles happen. That’s good, that’s plenty, plenty. Yeah. Whoa. – Look at all them bubbles. – Too much bubbles. Our Sprite’s got a lot of bubbles. Our Sprite’s got more
bubbles then your Sprite. – Kinda looks like dish soap. (Rhett laughs) – That’s why I told you
hold back on the dish soap. You went real big on the dish soap. – [Link] I mean, look at that. – You went real, real strong. – Whoa, this Sprite is gonna be great. – It’s not sprite, it’s clear Guinness. (Link laughing) – Clear Guinness. – Now from Guinness,
we’ve got clear Guinness. – Alright. – Look at the head on that Guinness. – Tastes just like Sprite
to me, now you taste it. Drink in all those bubbles. – Oh God. – What? Is it bad? – You, you went so hard
with the dish soap, man. You went so hard. You deserve to swallow that. Alright, somebody call Guinness, because I think we’ve got a
really good idea for a product. – [Rhett and Link] Round three. – You don’t see a lot of
commercials selling fruit because the stuff sells itself. It’s nature’s much less delicious candy. But when you do see a fruit commercial, do you ever notice how shiny the fruit is? Take a look at this
commercial for strawberries. (cheerful music) Mmmmm. – I don’t wanna eat a strawberry,
I wanna be a strawberry. (audience laughing) – What a fun, whimsical life. – Yes. – Shiny fruit sells and
you know how they do it? With spray deodorant or hair spray. – We’ve got hair spray. – Alright and I’m gonna pick out. – You need any in your hair? – Sure, I do. – Just a little spritz. – How I want it and
then hit it right there. That’s good, that’s enough. Alright, so I’ve got two strawberries that are, let’s see, that
are pretty identical. Well, I thought I had them picked out. I think that, yeah, I thought. Two here? – [Rhett] Yeah, yeah,
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. – Take a look at that, okay. And now spray that one. – You’re gonna get hair
spray on your hand. Let me do it away form the mic. – [Link] Nice. Alright, okay, okay buddy, okay. Is it shinier? – [Rhett] Let me get in there and see. – Is it shinier? – A little bit. I mean. – Ours isn’t that much shinier. – The other one was already kind of shiny. You know, we got some shiny strawberries. – But boy I bet this
one’s gonna taste great. – Yeah, it’s gonna taste
better, definitely. – Here, spray this one for you. No, spray it. – Okay, okay. (audience laughing) Ready. Oh, oh, okay. Oh, come on, man. Come on. – Oh, it’s nasty, it’s got
hair spray all (gags) over it. – I’ll do it. Oh my. – It can’t be that bad. – Did you see how much I sprayed on there? – Ugh. – I don’t think we should swallow this. – I’m having flashbacks to when I would go in my mom’s
ready room in the morning. I was like, mom, I’m
gonna be late for school and the whole place would
be filled with hair spray. – What’s a ready room? (audience laughing) You lived in a mansion, huh? Hey, I’ve been to your house
when you were a kid, man. It was a two bedroom, one bath. – Mama…
– Ain’t no ready room. – She had a whole section,
she has a ready room now. She had a whole section of our bathroom that she called her ready room. – Oh, okay. She got you talking about that too, huh. (laughing) – [Rhett and Link] Round four. – Now it doesn’t take much
to make me want a burger. Let’s take a look at this
Burger King commercial for the Whopper. – [Announcer] The new
double, quarter pound king from Burger King. Made with over a half pound
of flame grilled, 100% beef, four slices of cheese, pickles, and freshly chopped onions. The new Double Quarter Pound King, now part of the king
collection only at Burger King. – That looks so appetizing. – So juicy and grill marky. – Now what you notice
about that is, right. This is what you get when
you just go to Burger King. So these are just taken off of a Whopper. Now that doesn’t look juicy to me. I mean, it’s got grill marks on it, which I give them credit for that. It is actually flame broiled, but it’s not super, super succulent. – By the way, the bottoms
don’t have grill marks. – Don’t show the bottoms. – They only do one side. – Too late. Okay, here’s what they do
or here is what has been, you know, rumored to have been done. At least at some point in the past. The first thing they do is
they don’t cook it all the way. They just sear it for like 10
to 20 seconds on each side, so it has this like,
you saw how it had this like floppiness to it. Like the burger was like
(makes weird noises) – Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. – That was because it
wasn’t cooked all the way. Then they use a secret
ingredient, shoe polish. – Which we have here. Oh gosh. – So first thing you’re gonna do, just glaze that thing up with shoe polish. – Sure, I’m gonna glaze one,
so we can have a comparison. – I’d paint it on like
a, like Picasso, man. – Happy little accidents
all over this burger. Oh, look at that, that is
getting juicier by the second. Tastier by the, never. – It does, okay, it does
look a little tastier. – [Link] Look how shiny it is. – Now, the next thing they do is they take a dark shoe polish, like you’ve
got your black shoe polish over there, and they reinforce,
reestablish the grill marks. – Okay. – This is gonna take a steady hand, Link. – [Link] What? – [Rhett] Have you got a steady hand? – [Link] How’s this for steady hand? I’m good. It’s bleeding a little bit and boy. – Okay, I’m not gonna make
you do the whole thing. – Whew, that is strong smelling. – So this is what that
would end up looking like if you put those two things together. This is one that has been done off camera. – It’s been Josh-stripped. – Now, let’s, before…This
black one is really toxic, so we don’t want to eat that. Let’s recreate this thing. Put your buns on here. Keep up with what side
is the non-toxic side. Towards you, okay. – [Link] Yeah, my side. – [Rhett] Add some onions. – Now the Burger Kings I go to, they slather on a whole bunch
of mayonnaise, too much. – Really, really? – Yeah, they’ve got a mayonnaise issue. – Some of that. – We don’t have any of
that for that reason. – Some of that. Some pickles, put the
pickles towards the camera. – [Link] Oh yeah, you’ve got it Rhett. (Blows raspberry) – You just got a little bit in my eye. – Sorry, twice? Let me tell ya, that looks. – Look at that, see you
want that squirt to happen. – That looks straight out of a commercial. – Man, don’t you want to eat that? We’d be selling burgers left and right. – Hold on, which side
is the non-toxic side? This is the non-toxic side. – Are you sure? – Yes so, you bite that side. The toxic side, I’m gonna bite this side. – Go a little bit off center
on the non-toxic side. That’s what our show has become. We have to find the
non-toxic side of the burger. – First thing that hits me is, okay, a little dry Burger King burger. Been out for a while
and then all of a sudden there’s that special coating. There’s a meat coating that hits. – Something that seems
like it belongs on the shoe and not the mouth. – I could acquire that taste I think. (audience laughing) – Yeah. – I mean, if it was either that
or never eat a burger again. – [Rhett] I mean, it looks juicy. I don’t want to die today. (both forcefully spitting out burger) That was… – That what I think of advertisements. – That’s the next Burger King commercial. Just two guys taking a
bite and then going… (both forcefully retching) – Thank you for liking,
commenting, and subscribing. – You know what time it is. – I’m Austin. – And I’m Lindsey. – And we’re from Austin, Texas. We’re in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. – [Both] And it’s time to spin
the wheel of mythicallity. – Whooo, Myrtle Beach. – Biker wings.
– Myrtle Beach. – Click through to watch us
eat shaving cream desserts. – And to see where the
wheel of mythicallity is gonna land in good mythical more. All that meat and cheese making you think of tacos? Get our will it taco
shirt at mythical.store.

  1. I was gonna comment how on they shouldn't eat the glue, but then I remembered this was GMM, and they've eaten worse.

  2. Guinness actually did a clear Guinness ad since this video!! (it was for water, encouraging responsible drinking etc but still!)

  3. seems like all this could be used for false advertisement. I mean nothing you buy food wise looks anything like it does on tv

  4. As a Texan I've always wanted to find a guy from Austin named Austin. While that still hasn't happened with the exception of seeing this video, I have met a girl from Dallas named Dallas.

  5. Did you guys forget that the whole burger was glazed with the lighter shoe polish first 😂 “get the non toxic side” haha no such thing

  6. LOL! For the first commercial they showed for the cereal who thought it was real and tried to skip the add😅😆😋😂

  7. Link does too much he doesn't wait for Rhett to bite into his item at the same time he rushes and also he talks too much

  8. This is my first Good Mythical Morning video. I have to say I'm extremely disappointed. Why spin the wheel and not let me see the result of that spin. I'm super, super, SUPER disappointed. Please, someone tell me why they would tease me like this. Also, burgers at room temperature are dry. That's just a fact of life. I don't really care about that though, I just want to know where that damn wheel landed. Final thought, swallow it like you told your girlfriend too.

  9. Link: by the way, the bottoms don’t have grill marks

  10. They always be eating some type of toxic stuff like I don't even want to explain that to the doctor like I ate some shoe polish and some squid soda like I see their faces right now like what the f*** do you guys do in your free time

  11. Remember kids, eating glue makes you smarter. If you have acess to a bottle of glue at school, make sure to take a nice big chug. Its good for ya!


    I love you guys I have been watching you since I was a fetus 😂 🥰

    Stay healthy and don’t drink to much bUbBlES

  13. Food Stylists: creates food with chemicals and other toxic stuff
    Rhett and Link: "This is some serious gourmet ****."
