The Shadow Puppet Challenge

The Shadow Puppet Challenge


We’re two grown men and we’re
about to make shadow puppets. Let’s talk about that. ♪ (theme music) ♪ – Goooooooood Mythical Morning!
– You know how it is. You’re at a camping trip and you’re sitting there and
you realize there’s an opportunity for – shadow puppets.
– (chuckles) And you have an opportunity to impress
everybody in the tent. And then you start doing it and you’re like, “Oh, crap!
I wish I knew how to be better at shadow puppets, because then I would be
the most popular person in the tent! Maybe the most popular person
on the camping trip!” – Whoa! You missed your chance.
– Yeah. So today is about seeing how prepared we are for our next camping trip
or other shadow moment situation. – Shadow Puppet Preparedness Day!
– Because people– listen. Thanks to the internet, people who have the ability to
do things like amazing shadow puppets– – Do them, and make videos.
– (Rhett) … so that we can all see. (Rhett) There’s a video that you’re seeing
right now that is absolutely mindblowing. (Rhett) We’re not gonna show you the whole
thing, but you get just a sneak peek here – to get an idea.
– (Link) Everything is made with hands! – (Rhett) Just people’s hands, man!
– (Link) And the lack of light. Let’s not forget the absence of
light is key for this. (Rhett) But you also need light, Link.
It’s like life. You need the absence of light and you need light at the same time.
The world’s a (smack) shadow puppet. Okay, so let’s play the game! (Rhett) What is that puppet
that you’re shadowing? As you can see, we have entered the shadow
zone. Rhett, pull down the shade of – shadowness.
– Hoooo-wee, brother! And bump up the light over there and look
at that. It’s a shadow of Rhett! It’s Rhett. All right, we’re gonna play
this game Pictionary-style. – (barks gruffly)
– We are on the same team, Rhett. – Right, we are.
– Here’s how it’s gonna work. We’re gonna take turns. We’re gonna be given a little
note with an assignment of a shadow puppet to create. I have to guess and then we
switch. We each have three rounds. Yeah, a total of six rounds. There’s two
points available in each round. If we get it with no lifelines, you get two points.
If you have to use a lifeline, of which there are three– those are: You can make
the sound of the thing that you’re trying to shadow, you can get a diagram from the
internet on how to actually do it – correctly, or number three–
– (Link) A stencil that’s like a hint. But if you use that, you only get one
point. So if we use all our lifelines, that would be six points.
That’s not eight points. But if we do get eight points, we win a
prize that we have to share. It’s– – Our very own personal shadow!
– (both) Miss Shadow! – Follows us around all day.
– Here’s how it works. – That is a woman. That is Lizzie.
– See, anything that I do. – But it’s just a shadow.
– Anything that I do… the shadow… – does… and we get that all day.
– Or anything I do. – Like the Hammer.
– Yeah. Whup, she’s– That’s not the Hammer.
Shadow needs to practice. The Shadow’s gonna have
to work a little bit. All right, Shadow. Go away, Shadow.
See, that’s how I send the Shadow away. – All right! (claps)
– Rhett, let’s get started with round one. – Round one!
– Are you good at shadow puppets? – All right, you ready?
– I got my assignment. And listen, there’s – no time limit. The time limit is shame.
– Now, I’m tempted to look at you, but – I need to look at this. So, let’s go.
– Are you ready? Yeah, I’m ready! (Link) Ah… it’s two… it’s a hand
crawling on a hand. It’s a… oh, a whale! (Link) It’s a whale with a tongue! It’s a
squid! Oh my goodness… – (Link) It is a hermit crab.
– (Rhett) Oh! Egh! – (Link) Hermit crab?
– (Rhett) Ah! – (Link) Ah… a lizard! Two hands!
– (Rhett) Oo-doodoot– – (Rhett) Oh, can’t make noise!
– (Link) It’s a forked-tongue snake, – that’s awful!
– No no no, man! – C’mon, dude!
– (Rhett) Look. (Link) Do one thing! Stop adjusting. It’s
something walking. Are those legs? – (Rhett) Mm!
– (Link) Dude, you gotta make the noise. – (whispers) It doesn’t make any noise.
– He’s getting the stencil. This is going swimmingly so far. All right…. What?
A burger! Is that a burger? (Rhett) This is a– This is horrible, guys. – What is that?
– This is a horrible hint! – (Link) I don’t know what that is.
– (Rhett) Look, look. See? (Rhett) … thing, there, and then there’s
a something… and then… (Link) It’s got fangs?
Are those legs or fangs? – (Rhett) Just look. What are they doing?
– (Link) They’re walking. They’re swimming? (Link) It’s a…. I don’t know!
It’s a car with legs. – It’s a turtle!
– (buzzer noise) – A turtle?!
– (Rhett) It’s a turtle! Look at it! Look. – (Rhett) His head… and then his legs.
– (Link) Oh! (Rhett) It’s the shell, and then
he’s got a head, and he’s got legs. (Link) But that’s his eye
and those are fangs. – (crew laughs)
– (Rhett) I can’t get rid of the eye! – All right, that’s fine. I’ll redeem us.
– Aagh! – Give me a chance at this.
– Oh, man. That sucked. And this is a – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
– Oh. I can see that now. – Not a burger.
– Okay. Wow, it’s bright when I look at – that light.
– Okay. Okay, here I go. We ready? – Sorry, guys. I failed us.
– (Link) Okay. All right, I got this. (Rhett) Turkey. Hand. Human hand. Uhhhm… (Link) Um… My arms are in the way!
How do you… There we go! (Rhett) Amoeba. Oh! Mm… Octopus! Moctopus? What is that? (crew laughs) (Rhett) Hm. Two octopuses getting to know
each other. Hold on, you shouldn’t be doing octopus reproduction
on this channel. Hold on, here…. here we go. – Come on, Rhett.
– (Rhett) Squid? – (Link) Come on, dude!
– (Rhett) It looks like a ghost from, um… Pac Man! What are the… what are
the edges? What are those– oh. Portuguese Man of War. – Oh! C’mon, keep going!
– (Rhett) Jellyfish? – Yes!
– (both laugh) – Two points!
– What were the horns? Those were by accident.
That was just like– – (laughs) Those were my thumbs!
– I couldn’t control my thumbs. (Rhett) All right, here we
go. Moving along. All right, so we got some
points on the board now. – (Rhett) Okay.
– We should just shoot our show against – a white–
– Woo! Here I go. I’m gonna get this one. (Link) Uhhhh… snake? Ah, two snakes.
Ooh. What is that? A T-Rex. – Mmeh!
– (Link) T-Rex! Dinosaur! – Yeah!
– Dinosaur? – Yeah! Just like that, brother! Yeah!
– Right off the bat! Look at that, with the little arms! Look! That’s specifically a T-Rex
with a huge eye. Rrrrarh! I was gonna make the noise
and everything, but I didn’t have to! – Wow, we’re on a roll, Link!
– I would’ve put an eye up like that. You gotta add an eyeball
to it. Reh, reh, reh! Hold on, it’s your– that’s
a duck. It’s your turn. – (Link) All right. Ooh.
– So we got four points. Yeah, we’re killing it. All right, um…
hm. Tryin’ to figure this one out. – You ready?
– (Rhett) Yeah, yeah. (Rhett) Link! Oh, that’s just your head.
Duck. (Rhett) Uh… duck with a horn.
Oh, that looks like a dinosaur again. An alligator? An alligator with a pelvis
that is detached and can become legs in different places on its body?
Oh, he’s got a humpback! – A camel!
– Oh yeah! (laughs) – (laughs) That was a camel?!
– Yeah, that’s a camel. – It looks like an ostrich, doesn’t it?
– What were you doing with the legs? Well, I said he has two legs… and then…
It was more like– it’s less like a shadow – puppet and more like Pictionary.
– His head looks nothing like a camel, – but we got it.
– It’s an animal, yeah. – All right, that’s good!
– (Rhett) We got six points. – Add that hump!
– (Rhett) This is, ah… I wouldn’t say we’re great at making
shadow puppets, it’s more like we’re good at hand Pictionary. It’s not
exactly the same thing. Two more rounds, Link! We have to
get two points in these last two rounds – to get Miss Shadow for the day.
– Okay, all right. That’s a shoo-in as far as I’m concerned. (Link) Uhh…. the way your hand just
starts crawling is freaky. – Ooh, a demon!
– (Rhett laughs) – (Link) A goat! A demonic goat!
– I have no idea. (Link) What? Um… Illuminati! Scissors! (Link) Scissors… Rock! I’m gonna use my diagram. – We have the diagram, obviously.
– I’m gonna look at the ground for reference. I’m gonna
set this on the ground. Okay, all right. You can do this, man. – (Link) Bunny!
– (Rhett) Holy moly, how in the world do – these people do this?
– I’m just gonna give you a second to try to figure this out. I wanna
see if you can… ooh! Whoa. (Link) What is happening? – (Rhett chuckles)
– (Link) Are you doing what you’re – supposed to be doing?
– (laughs) I think so. – It looks like a guy holding his own arm.
– (laughs) Oh gosh, this is hard. (Link) What is that? It’s a dog… it’s
got ears… what is this? What is that? It’s a thing. I can’t tell
you; it’d be cheating. – (Link) Ooh! A llama!
– (Rhett) Ah! – It’s a pregnant llama!
– (Rhett laughs) – A pregnant–! Is it a pregnant llama?
– (Rhett) No! – (Link) It looks like a freakin’ llama!
– (Rhett) Ah… I’m gonna have to give up. I’m just doing weird things now ’cause I
know you’re not gonna get it. – Rrrah! Rrreeegh! Bleaargh!
– It’s like a– a demonic goblin! – Listen. Look at the diagram! Try!
– It’s so difficult, Link! Don’t put so – much pressure on me!
– You had a perfect pregnant llama – a second ago.
– Okay, well… the hand at the top is so strange. Like that. And then it’s got this
thing on the bottom… and then it comes out like this. It comes out and it’s
really– maybe it needs to be extended. It’s like down here.
Blodoip, badoink! Blodoip, badoink! – A kangaroo.
– Yeah! Yes! – (laughs)
– We get one point! – Okay!
– ‘Cause it was the thing– All right, once you started
making it bounce… I’ll take that. – That wasn’t against the rules, was it?
– Oh no, it’s not. ‘Cause I mimicked the kangaroo. I mean,
I made a “doink doink doink” sound but that’s not the sound
that they actually make. (Link) Wow, that’s kind of difficult.
– Okay, Link, it’s all up to you. This is our final round. You have to get one
point for us to get eight points. I gotta be honest. I gotta
use the lifeline right away. – You can go straight to the lifeline.
– Okay, well… I don’t know how much this is gonna help me. (Rhett) Link! Link with glasses. Link
holding his hand up. Link with a gun. (Rhett) Link pointing! Link holding
the hand that he was pointing. Whaaaat… in the world is that? – I can do this.
– Is that a hat? Is that a man’s noooose? Pinocchio! (Link) Whoa, look at that! I’m
doing it! (laughs) I’m doing it! It’s a man with a straight hat
like that. It’s a cowboy. Yeah! You got it! Oh, no, it’s not a
cowboy. Sorry. It’s close, though. – (Rhett) Hm. Ranch hand.
– It’s closer. – (Rhett) Rancher.
– Nngh, closer! Ah… bull rider! Rodeo master! At this
point I’m just guessing different people – that might wear hats.
– (Link) I mean, look at how good I’m doing this. It’s amazing.
I think it looks like a– (Rhett) Can you make the
noise he would make? – Soo-ee!
– (Rhett) A pig farmer. – Farmer, yeah!
– (laughs) – Pig farmer for the win!
– And look. You wanna know what a lying pig farmer looks like? (both) Booeep! – (both) We won!
– (Rhett) Woo woo woo woo woo! We get our own shadow for the day!
