Crazy Free Stuff On Craigslist (GAME) ft. Ben Schwartz

– Nothing in life is free – Unless it comes from Craigslist

– Let's talk about that (alarm rings) (playful theme music) (fire blasts) – Good Mythical Morning – And happy Labor Day and laboring with us today is one of the stars of the new film Blue Iguana, Ben Schwartz! – Welcome, Ben – Wow, thank you guys for clapping That means a lot

Thank you so much for clapping, I appreciate it – You're welcome They love to clap here – Oh – They do it sporadically and with semi-emotional levels of enjoyment

– Does your audience clap whilst watching your videos? – That's a great question – I would like to think that they do – We're gonna have to install cameras in order to find out – Oh wow, we're getting to FBI stuff real quick – Now speaking of FBI stuff, there's some clandestine stuff happening in your movie

So you play an ex-con – I do – And you go to London to steal a rare gem that's called the blue iguana But you didn't know that you don't have to travel all the way to London to get a rare gem – That's true

– You can find those on Craigslist – I know, what idiots are we? So the movie makes no sense We should literally, right now– – Scrap the whole thing – It comes out on the 24th, if this is coming out after it, I guess just erase it If you've already bought it, erase it

– I'm so glad that you're so with this – Yeah, I am, I'm ready for this – And instead you could replace the movie with just taking items from Craigslist that could be free – Yes – And those are the gems

– And I've just heard about this and it makes me very excited – And you can determine, was this free, or did somebody pay for it and then hand it to me? – Mhm, mhm, mhm – That's the game we're about to play – That's exactly what we're going to do It's time for– ♪ Because your Craig, your Craig ♪ ♪ Is on my list ♪ ♪ For free stuff and lice ♪ – All right so here's what's happened, like I said, our crew has collected items from all over the Los Angeles area that have been listed on Craigslist and we have not seen any of these

Of course, you haven't either right? – No I have not – You have not cheated Some of them were free, some of them required legal tender, they were purchased – Right right right right – And we have to guess if it was free or not

If we get it right, we each get a point, we're competing against each other – I love it – Now if it is revealed that the item actually cost money, we have an opportunity to guess exactly how much it cost Whoever's closest will receive a bonus point for that round and then whoever guesses the most right in the end gets a prize and that prize is actually taking one of these Craigslist items home! – Is that true? – Your choice! – You get something, Ben ♪ Because your list, your list ♪ ♪ Is our list ♪ – [Rhett And Link] Round one

– All right Stevie, what do we have first? – [Stevie] Our first item is a horse head The description states, ceramic horse head wall art from 1950 Excellent condition Was this item free or did we pay for it? – Well would that thing increase in value from zero to zero? – That is an excellent horse head, I mean, it's got like vein articulation on the snout – This is gonna be harder than I thought it was

I thought it would be just like a piece of actual, like trash I gotta write down – You're showing the people his bad side You don't wanna– – I'm showing myself 'Cause I'm playing the game

Okay – [Stevie] All right And let's reveal in three, two, one – Freebies – I say money

– Both of you guys disagreed with me Dink it and sink it – Okay, do this and try to spell a word Looking at that screen, it is near impossible Ready, just try to write bad boy

(crew laughing) – For those of you who don't know, there's a screen down here that Ben can't stop looking at because we're on it (chuckling) – It's amazing, it's incredible – That says bad boy – All right guys – Who was right? – [Stevie] You're excited about this horse

We paid for it – Yeah you did! – Yay! – [Stevie] So in order to get that bonus point, I need you to write down how much you think we paid for it – This is great Guys, I'm really happy we did this – Yeah I'm really confident about this

– Really? – I feel like a special connection to the item – Hold up – Okay – Definitely what I'm picking – [Stevie] I'm gonna say how much we paid, and then we can see what you guys– – That sounds great

– Okay ready? We paid $20, also, well let's reveal, what'd you guys think? – $199 – $799 – All right Ben, you win this one, man – [Stevie] Well also the person who gave this to us was three hours late to the agreed upon meetup time and to make up for it, she threw in a free box of unopened Topps Hockey Cards from the 90s

– That's– – Topps Hockey Cards! – Amazing, that could be worth millions! – It could be worth millions – We paid $20 though, so – [Rhett And Link] Round two – All right Stevie, what do we have now? – [Stevie] This next item was listed as a red heart – Oh gosh

– According to the creator, this is a hand-made heart mushroom stool – Oh man – Was this item free, or did we pay for it? – It's like a toadstool – It is a heart – Very plush

– But then on the side, it's barked – Is it actual bark, may I? – Yeah, this is heavy as crud – Hold on you guys– – Oh it's a real thing – No one ever sat on this This was made, this is new

There's absolutely no wear on this at all – No, that heart has not been touched – That is a fresh heart – The game is misleading, now I'm trying to play the game, because surely this would cost money, look at it, it's a gorgeous, beautiful piece of art (chuckling) So like– – But the kind of person who would make heart art is the kind of person that might just give it away for free

– I love this, I love the deep ties we do on our product – It's big, what are you gonna do with it? Get rid of it – I'm playing the game Not my heart, I'm playing the game and not my heart – Okay okay, he's in it to win it, as they say

– [Stevie] Let's see in three, two, one – It was free, guys – It is free – We all agree – It is free

– [Rhett] Set your heart free – [Stevie] You guys are all right, it was free The person who we got this from says that she typically charges $15 for these stools but, quote, "Due to it not being perfectly made, "this one is free" (Ben chuckles) – There are no imperfections– – What's not perfect about– – No this is beautiful – Is it because it kinda leans to the left

– [Stevie] Yeah it's a broken heart – [Rhett And Link] Round three – [Stevie] This next item was simply listed as bottle caps Was this item free or did we pay for it? (bottle caps clatter) – Well, hm – Ben you wanna do the honors? – [Ben] May I? – Let's see what we got in there

– Right now we have a ton of Guinness We have a couple Stella, they're all– – They're all beer bottle tops, huh? – But, but– – This is free – But it's so money-like, you know what I'm saying? – I'm listening, I'm listening – Shake it – You have my attention

– It's like cartoon money And also, there's machines around town, you can just go and just drop these in and coins come out – For bottle caps? – Yeah, right? – I just don't get it Someone put this on Craigslist as a joke – By the way, if they slow motion this replay, you caught that so beautifully, and you acted like it wasn't a big deal

– Happens all the time I'm very athletic – Wow ♪ Because your ♪ Sorry – Okay

– Ready? – [Stevie] Three, two, one – Don't pay for this, man – Wow Wow – $3

47 – [Stevie] Well Link I think you may be playing the game incorrectly – I'm just getting on with it (crew laughing) – [Stevie] We got these for free – Son of a– – Really? I thought that was a misdirection

– [Stevie] The person who gave them to us was only gonna give us half of them The other half they wanted to sell to us, but when we told them we were using them for a fine art project, they gave it to us for free – Oh okay, what– – Crap Now what are we gonna do with them? (bottle caps clatter) – Aw man – You were supposed to catch that and impress Ben again

(bottle caps clatter) – Ooh! ♪ Baby do you know what that's worth? ♪ (Rhett and Link laugh) – [Rhett And Link] Round four – [Stevie] This next item was listed as healthy broccoli chicken dinner According to the ad, it contains chicken, yams, raw broccoli, steak and potatoes– – Can you believe this? – And it was, quote, "Made on Tuesday" – What? – It's about a week old – On Craigslist? – Is this like a Blue Apron situation on Craigslist? – This is blowing my mind

– This is like homemade Blue Apron, red apron – You can't, you can't, you can't, you can't – And it's good I mean this is good stuff This is homemade

– For free you're gonna lose money, you're gonna go broke – And we're asking for what all three of these together are? – [Stevie] Yeah let's play Link's rules from the last round so if you think it costs something, why don't you go ahead and write down what you think it costs – I got this, I think I nailed it – Yeah – [Stevie] All right well let's go one at a time then

Link – Free – No way – Yeah – You're being insane

– I think it's to help people who need food – [Stevie] Ben – And we shouldn't have taken it – Oh gosh – Oh no! – Yeah we left it out for a week and then– – It's so true! – Yeah, I think someone's being a good Samaritan and we took advantage of it for the sake of internetainment

– [Stevie] Okay Ben? – I say $1250 – Is that per month, week, or– – No, it's for this, it's for this – Just for that – These three items

– Rhett – Is said $1112 – Whoa, look at that! – We're close – [Stevie] Guys, this was free

– Yeah! – No! – And we feel horrible about it – [Stevie] He made too much food and he was leaving town and he didn't like to waste food, so that's why he got– – That's so nice! – What a great guy – I didn't think about that particular angle – [Rhett And Link] Round five – [Stevie] Next we have a Sport Squad FX48 Foosball Table

– Oh yeah – The post reads, "Used but assembled "Thought the kids would play more but they don't, "so it's just taking up space "Still in pretty good condition "One soccer ball

" – Look at that, Sport Squad You know what, the last thing I got off Craigslist was? A foosball table And you know how many times that thing's been played since it's been at my house? Three Over the past few years, thing's only been used three times (Rhett laughs enthusiastically) I should put it back on– (Rhett laughing) – Goodness sake, just go like that

Beautiful shot, by the way – This is a horribly large item that no one has a use for but everyone thinks they want – I just used it and it was incredibly fun – We just had a great time – I'm glad you're saying that 'cause we're gonna have to re-post this thing

– Yeah how are we getting rid of all this stuff? Of course I'm taking this home when I win – The food? – The foos – Nice I mean you still got it (Rhett chuckles) – Okay

All right, we're ready – All right, Rhett – Free (Ben laughs) – [Stevie] Ben? – Free – You know what, I lured you guys in

Ha, this thing costs $23 – Whoa did you really? – You think so? – Yes – That's a mind game – [Stevie] It was just $20, 'cause $23 seems a little– – Yeah! – Wow – Yeah! – Big comeback

– That's right – And, fun fact, the person who sold it to us was a background actor in the movie Avatar – Whoa (crew laughing) – [Rhett And Link] Round six – All right Rhett, you're two points down

– I cannot win, I can only tie – You cannot even tie – No I would have to say that it was a price and also be the closest to it – And the reason why I like coming on this show is that air tight logic for how points you scored, how games are played– – Can change at the drop of a hat – I love it

– Yeah yeah yeah, it's very fluid – It's like being in Willy Wonka's factory (Rhett laughs) – Let's see the last one – [Stevie] Okay guys – It's either me or you, buddy

– I can't wait – [Stevie] We have an item that was listed as curiosities of the natural world In all caps, vial wet specimens The owner of the vials told us he spent 40 years (vials clattering) collecting them – Hey Link

– Oh – [Stevie] Was this item free or did we pay for it? – [Rhett] What is it? – [Ben] They're all different things, they're all bugs – Centipede – And it smells like the Pirates of the Caribbean ride from Disneyland – Oh my gosh, look at this, this one says February 15th, 1977

– This says February 19th, 77 Boy that week in February in 77 – February 3rd, Los Angeles – We don't know what we're touching, that's the other thing, we have no idea what we're touching right now – February 77, take me back

– This one's got a– – I was in the womb – This is a spider with the bit egg sac – Yeah, this is disgusting – I was in an egg sac! – February 10th, 1977 – Okay

(Ben chuckling) – This is crazy I think this is like an estate situation There's like a dead guy who collected all this stuff – I know what games you're playing And do you think that he would charge money for it? – The granddaughter just wants to get rid of it

– What's the granddaughter's name, Rachel? – Tina, she wants to get rid of it – Classic Tina Ready? – Yep – Free (Rhett chuckles) – I also said free, which meant– – We tie no matter what

– We're tying no matter what – Whoa– – $3122 – If he gets it exactly correct, I think that Rhett should win – If it's money, I automatically win

I tie, it's a four-way tie – You get two points? – [Stevie] Guys guess what? – Can't be a four-way tie There's only three of us – No I said three-way tie – Oh do we lose points if we get it wrong? – Yes, we do, now we do

– No because I'd be right for saying it and then I get an extra point– – Stevie please! – [Stevie] We got a three-way on our hands – Yes! See? – How much did it cost? – Two plus two plus four – [Stevie] $22 – What? – I put 22 cents Look at that, but it doesn't matter because I'm the closest

– This is amazing – Somebody's life work for $22? – I wonder how he or she got to that point – So it's a three-way tie, Ben you're our guest, so you get to choose what you wanna take home Please take all of it – I absolutely will not take all of it

I will take the hockey cards, which would be incredible – Oh these mint condition – The one thing that wasn't supposed to be anything and we're giving to you for free – Your life could be about to change, man – 1994, 95, man
