I Painted Rhett & Link’s Wives.

– Okay I'm gonna go a little abstract with this, I think I'm gonna include some words

First thing that comes to mind? – [Jessie] I am a big fan of (bleep) – Um (poppy electronic music) Welcome to Let's Talk About That, the show about the show I'm Stevie and snakes are just tails with faces Today's guests had their first kiss with the same woman, their first relationship with the same woman, and now have the same woman as their right-hand woman

Please welcome Rhett and Link (scattered applause, one person cheering) – Yeah, woo, yeah, LTAT! Let's Talk About That hosted by Stevie! – The intro was long, you didn't know when to come in I totally understand – But I am sorry – I don't wanna call it out

– I'm sorry – It's fine Guys, what t-shirts are you wearing today? They're so lovely – What t-shirt are you wearing? – A Mythicali-tee – This is a Mythicali-tee

– [Link] Happy Saturday! – Yeah I just picked this one up, this is Mythicali-tee that's the positivitee Mythicali-tee, I just randomly picked it up And then, well you guys are wearing Mythicali-tees as well – And it's so weird, yeah Actually you guys are wearing the same pants, same shoe combo I like it

I like it a lot, I like it! – These are my favorite shirts we've ever made so far – That is big That's a big statement – I could stare at it forever and find meaning in it – What's the meaning of your shirt? – (clears throat) I haven't looked at it

– Okay, guys, this week is a little bit different – Okay – Yeah, I was hoping you'd change it – We gotta mix it up, we gotta– (Link laughs) – Usually– – Come on, don't– – [Stevie] There's like a list of things – He didn't mean that

– Oh I'm past it already There's a list of three things that we usually do Today there's one thing on my list This week I painted your wives – Body paint? – Well, maybe after

Maybe that wasn't part of this bit, but maybe that's what happened afterwards (Rhett chuckles) That was my plan all along to just paint a portrait of them and then paint them – Oh, portrait – So I don't get a drink? – Yeah, you do, but I'm still on my list portion – Oh, I was like, if you're gonna break my wife out on the internet– – I would be drinking

– I gotta have a drink – There is a little bit of alcohol in today's drink because it is kombucha You guys know it, you love it – So you were doing a teaser, you weren't about to– – Yeah usually on the show, what I do is I have a teaser and then I bring out the beverages and we have that bit – Is that right? – You like the beverage wall– – I thought you were cheating

– At Ralphs? – Uh no – Oh, okay – Sometimes I go to Ralphs and I'll see a bunch of expensive beverages – But you don't really like that part – And I'm not interested

– Yeah, I liked it because it said happiness on it is the flavor, the flavor of happiness – When you got one of these Mythicali-tees, you can do that You can pop the top off with it – I love kombucha I got into that because of California

(Stevie and crew laugh) There was a stint where we were brewing kombucha at our house – With the mother – We were making our own kombucha with the mother – You know about the mother? – I know about the mother Tell them about the mother

– The mother is a giant bacterial mass– – Sometimes it looks like a mushroom type of thing Isn't it a fungus? Isn't it a, no? – No – It's not what it is? – I think it's a bacterial– – A bacterial mass? – It's kinda like yeast, I think – Okay so let me, we're going back to the wives thing 'cause that's the only thing we're doing today I want to kind of paint a picture of why the heck we're doing this

– Yeah 'cause this is a big deal You're on thin ice – Yes, Jessie, Rhett's wife, designed our new half of our studio She did a lovely job My girlfriend Cassie painted some murals

You walk in, it's very colorful and lively and cool Jessie has great taste There's one thing that Jessie did– – Not in men, but– – That we all questioned, collectively questioned, and that was that she had a painting that was– – Oh – She never hung up, but it just kind of floated around the studio, and this is that painting Is this good for camera? Kiko, you got it? So you'll notice in this painting that this is a girl

– Yeah yeah yeah – This was propped up in the conference room for months – It traveled around, it was like in the hallway, it was in the other room, then it was in the conference room – My brain, I assume I'm not the only one, would like a involuntary response, assuming that that is a person in the corner of the room – Well that was a problem is that we all felt like this was an actual person that we should know, not like a painting, you know like you see a portrait and you're like oh– – It was too close to home

– Well yeah, the fact is, no one knows who that person is – If you know who this is– (Rhett chuckles) Please leave a comment with your name and telephone number so that we may reach you and give you your portrait back – So I called Jessie, like you said, Jessie was in the process of finding different things to decorate the wall over there on the other side And we saw this painting and we were in the conference room and I called her and I was like, yeah there's this painting that is in the conference room and everybody is– – Freaked out by it – Asking what it is, and based on the other paintings that are in here, I was assuming that it wasn't a painting that she wanted us to put on the wall

– It was not? – But it was She was like, "Oh I thought you guys "could put that somewhere" – Boy, did we? – (chuckles) Yeah we got a lot of mileage out of that painting, but not by putting it up on the walls – Yeah, my thought was, why don't we get a portrait of someone that we do know and why don't we get a portrait of Jessie because she designed the studio? So that's what I took upon myself to do I'm not an artist

You might look at me, you might think, wow, she's an artist She paints things– – Yeah look at that hat She must be an artist – Truth is, truth be told that I'm not an artist When you think about drawing or painting a portrait, is there a movie that comes to mind or a line from the movie that comes to mind? – Draw me like your French– – Draw me like one of your French girls

– French girls, yeah – From Titanic So I wanted to make sure that they knew that I had respect for Leo and that I could be Leo so I just wanted to show them this photo of me from when I was trying to be Leo – [Rhett] Oh wow – [Stevie] And I just wanted to get the photo on the show, that's really all I'm doing

– What is this photo for, by the way? – This is for you to see– – Is this an employ? – For the people to see Is it a what? – Were you employed? – Did you get paid for that photo? – No, no one ever wants to pay me to look like a guy, but they do wanna pay me to look like a girl It's unfortunate (Rhett chuckles) So all that being said, they allowed me to paint them, spoiler alert and I hope you guys like it (funky music) – Hello! – Hi! How are you? – Come on in

– Okay so I kind of explained what we're gonna do You're not supposed to be on camera so I'm kinda breaking the rules So I think that we're just gonna blur your face and just so we trust that we're gonna blur your face, I think that we should go through a couple of things that I would want blurred of me so you get that trust level Okay so when I was in kindergarten, we went to the library for reading day and I yanked my pants down and I just (bleep) – Wow, Stevie, I didn't know that about you

I feel closer to you, though now – Okay, is there anything that you would like to share with me? – Can I share something about Rhett? – Oh, yeah – Well sometimes after a long day of shooting GMM, Rhett comes home and he's super tired and sometimes he likes to put his (bleep) in a (bleep) of (bleep) – Well that was more than I was expecting Yeah, that's good

– Yeah – Setting, very important And you welcomed us into your beautiful home, so I feel like we have to pick the perfect spot 'cause I wanna get this portrait right – [Jessie] Absolutely – And I saw something looking good down there

– That's the laundry room – Oh, okay I feel like it could work This would be the prop – Mhm

– Let's switch places – Okay – And I'm thinking the scene is like, I have invisible clothes They're dirty and boy do I need to wash 'em, but before I do, I need to lean against my washing machine – Maybe I can– (whacks machine) – Yes

– Put my leg up on here too – Yes, now I feel like your face should evoke invisible clothes You know, that's not bad Considering I already had somewhere in my mind that we should paint you, let's just get out of here and go to that place Yeah, I think this is gonna be perfect

– [Jessie] Oh good – Oh, Christy, what are you doing here? – [Christy] I'm just here reading The Book of Wood – She likes to come over and read Rhett's books about wood – Well we're gonna paint a portrait, if you wanna be in it, we can do like a double portrait – Okay, cool

– I'm liking what I'm seeing Maybe we need some props So Christy, maybe like a plant And then Jessie, I'm thinking something like LaCroix I think what you're doing right now works

It says to me, I'm juggling a lot, and then Christy, you have a very mother earth pose happening We need to choose colors that really define your relationship or perhaps how you're feeling at this moment Does anything come to mind? – [Christy] I really like yellow – [Stevie] Really like yellow – [Jessie] I didn't know that about you

– [Christy] Last month and this month, I like yellow – Just yellow – Just yellow – For this month – [Christy] Last month and this month

Two months in a row – Okay Are you guys comfortable with what you're wearing? Did you wanna take something off? – I'm good – I'm all right – All right let's get started

I heard that! (both chuckle) Do you guys know what season you are? – [Christy] I think I might be summer because of yellow Like last month and this month I'm summer – [Jessie] My hands are getting really cold – How many fingers? – [Jessie] How many fingers? They're all cold, so 10 – Even the pinky? – [Jessie] Pinky's pretty cold

– Okay I feel like we need to figure out the facial expressions So I'm gonna yell out some emotions I want you to give them to me We'll go easy with happy I don't really like that

Let's go opposite, sad Our husbands just ate balls again Okay, I'm gonna go a little abstract with this I think I'm gonna include some words First thing that comes to mind

– [Jessie] I am a big fan of (bleep) – Um Christy? (bleeps) Okay, you guys are both feeling dirty today – [Jessie] Not everybody loves this, but I love (bleep) – Give me some more

(bleeps) (Stevie chuckles) You guys are making me hot You're making me uncomfortable with what you're saying to me right now Rapid fire (bleeping) (soft chuckling) Great I think I've done it

You guys wanna see? – [Jessie] Yeah – The big reveal – [Christy] That's awesome! – Thank you – [Jessie] I mean, I feel my essence – It's gotta be the hands

– [Christy] Yeah, you did a great job with her hands Look at your hands – [Jessie] Look at your face – What do you think the guys are gonna think? – [Jessie] If they love us, they should love this painting – Well good, 'cause this is going in their office

– Wow! (Link chuckles) – Went well, right? – It's gonna go in our office, huh? – Yeah, and I think you're gonna love what I've done – Hey how 'bout those wives though? – You never know what they're gonna say – Using the plural of wife and wives is not something that one does often – How 'bout those wives? (Stevie laughs) – How about those wifes? Well, I mean, so it's clear why they haven't been in videos before now Because their faces are blurred

– Yeah – In real life, our wives have blurred faces – Have blurred wives Are we ready for this reveal? – I am so ready for this! – Me too – Okay

– Okay, can you help me? Here we go – It's pointy (Stevie grunting) – This is much more dramatic in my mind than in real life Ready? It's blurred, ha ha Just kidding

This is the unblur, ooh There it is – [Link] Dog beach, Rhett's wood – Um Wow, Stevie, it's– – How the wives now, am I right? – It's quite an interpretation

– [Stevie] Can you point out what's going on? – Let me see if I can find my wife I believe she's somewhere in here – Yeah, you're feeling it – [Link] She's in the ventilation shafts, coming out of the sky with the musical raindrops falling on it? – No, those re the tops of LaCroix cans – Yes

– Oh! – So then what are these? – Those are her cold fingers – Yes! – Oh, and then– – And then your wive She likes yellow, depending on the month – Yeah, for the two months that we're currently in – And my wood is growing towards your wife

– Well no, that is an inappropriate interpretation I did not think you were gonna say that – What do you– – Whoa! – [Link] If that's not wood, what is that? – That's a snake – That is the plant– – Your snake is growing towards my wife – That she's holding

Guys, you're so dirty I wasn't even implying that that was your wood – First of all, what did they say? I wanna see the unscripted version – So obviously, Christy does like Rhett's wood, she already said that in the video – She likes his wood books

– I don't wanna be inappropriate Yeah well I can't fit books on there – She appreciates my interest in wood – I had to shorten it Dog beach is actually something that Christy did yell

– You said just say what comes to your mind and she said, "Dog beach!" – Well she said, "Dawg beach" (all laughing) That was really funny I just felt like– – Okay That's my wife The dog beach is my wife

– Yeah – Okay, okay – I really, really like it – Thank you guys – I don't know if we'll put it in the office, but, maybe somewhere, there are some storage areas

– We'll probably prop it up and it'll get moved around – Yeah yeah yeah yeah – Okay, well, I'll take it I mean I thought that you guys were gonna really love it, so I have some other pieces that I did – Oh

– If you wanna look at them – Sure, I do really love it What are the other pieces? – Before you look at the screen, you know how when your mom finds boxes of your things and just immediately sends them to you? I don't know if that still happens, but it trickles for me– – Right, she does that – Because she's like, I want all of you out of here So she sent me some drawings that I did and I thought like, hey, if you guys are so impressed by this amazing work– – Which we are

– You'd like to see those– – Yeah clearly we are – So this one actually is my favorite one Is that 96? I think that's a 96 – [Rhett] 96 yeah, December 28th – [Stevie] And you can see that it's an alien

– [Link] It's an alien scape – [Stevie] It's got a low belly button And I would like to attribute to the way that Britney Spears used to wear her pants like very low down – Right – That I just naturally thought the belly button could go that low

– Bellow the belt belly button kind of situation No clothes on that alien – [Stevie] Some kind of nipple – Must mention nipples – There's nipple action

– 'Cause we do that every Saturday – But then the cute thing is that if you go to the next one, my sister was in a phase where she liked to copy everything that I did so this is from the same day but it's by her – [Link] To my sister Stephanie – [Stevie] And you can see that's from the year 62 – Your sister wasn't as talented as you

– No, hers sucks compared to yours – I mean if you guys are saying it Then we got another one It's just a mouse, this is just impressive to me – [Rhett] Interesting perspective there

– Shading – Hold on, you had quite a day on December 28th, 1996 – [Stevie] Yeah, I was cranking them out – Was it raining? – Probably – What was going on? It's an odd time to be drawing

You're not even in school at that point – Took away your Polly Pockets, or? – [Rhett] Was this punishment? Were you being punished? – No but that's what I think is the self-portrait– – Could watch your Olsen twin DVDs – [Stevie] This is from a little bit later, this one That's me – [Link] That's definitely you, I could tell immediately

– So if you guys want a copy of that and have that– – [Link] Playing your soccer – Could you please do that with your hair again? (chuckles) – Yeah – What does F stand for? – [Stevie] Gosh, I don't know – [Rhett] Well you seem to know in that picture – Football! – Football, yeah, I was European

Then we go on This is, why I wanted to bring this up is 'cause this is where, do you see the progression of where I went with my current art – [Rhett] You drew a danger cube? – Danger cube is very abstract This is when I really got going And then next

– [Link] Oh, danger cube explodes – [Stevie] No no no, this is when I realized I wanted to be a producer This is a television screen with excitement and that is what you're watching right now is that, so I just wanted to, the reason I showed you all these is to let you know that back in 98, is when I'm assuming I did this one, I knew this show was going to exist – Wow – You knew this was gonna happen

Sobering, depressing moment – All right guys, well that's all the time we have for today, so– – I'd like to thank our wifes for coming on your show – I would love to thank your wives – And I'd like to thank everyone for being so supportive of them in the comments – Right

– And their blurred faces – I'm so excited to find out what they actually said Telling people that I put my– – Well that was all of her, that was, yes – I put my wood into what? – I'll tell you later – At the end of a long, hard day

– Yeah, woo, she didn't say hard, did she? Anyway, now it's time to say the phrase we all know and love Until next– – Next– – [Stevie And Rhett] LTAT– – [All Together] Keep on BYMB! (poppy electronic music)
