Rhett and Link Have a Meltdown!

A new video from Rhett and Link is always instantly blogworthy at this Garden Party!  Last night, after their weekly live chat, the fellas held what they referred to as an “after party.”  Their plans for the evening were to rehearse, record, and video tape a new song, called “The Economic Meltdown Song 08” – an extremely timely endeavor considering President Bush had just addressed us on that issue earlier that morning!  They decided to leave their live video feed up so we could watch the creative process…and even participate in it!  They monitored the chat that accompanies the video feed and even used the live poll feature to ask our preference on the phrasing of a particular line.  I’ll toot my little horn for a second and say they (and the chat community) chose phrasing that I originally suggested.  I’m loving that to pieces, but I’m not going to indulge my ego enough to tell you which line it was.  That would take away from the awesomeness that is Rhett and Link, and that’s what we’re really here to discuss tonight!

It’s a bare-bones video, which is intentional to compliment the subject matter.  There was discussion of making sure to mention both McCain and Obama in the song so as not to appear they were endorsing a particular candidate.  But, when I saw the finished video this afternoon and laughed my butt off at the picture they used to accompany the line, “moving back in with Mama,” (It was a pic of Sarah Palin), I decided to believe it was their tiny, subtle way of making their statement.  Link’s funny expression after that sealed the deal on that one for me.  Maybe that’s just me.

Anyway, I wanted to see this video filmed outside in the dark under a street light with the guys’ guitar case open at their feet for tips.  But, it was after 2:30 a.m. before they even got around to setting up the video camera.  Without further ado…please enjoy!  Oh, and COMMENT!  Comments are my favorite snack food!

Since I am part of the crowd that is showing up for the live broadcasts, I’m privvy to certain privileged information.  I’ll share this with you now:  There is an absolutely awesome interactive video experience being unveiled on YouTube Monday (September 22).  It is the brainchild of Rhett and Link but will involve lots of other YouTube favorites…and you’ll have a chance to participate yourself!  Check back here or at their YouTube channel for more!

Luke 14: 28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it– 29 lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, 30 saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’ 31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? 32 Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace.
