Will It Taco? Taste Test (REHEATED)

– Today we ask the age-old question Again

– Will it taco? – Let's taco 'bout that (funky electronic music) (fire crackles) – Good Mythical Morning – Come see us live in concert across the United States, this June 21st through 30th Tickets go on sale this Friday and Mythical Society members get early access as always – Yes

– Starting tomorrow morning, go to RhettAndLinkLivecom for more info – Yes, now according to Malcolm Gladwell, it takes 1500 goat testicles to master a skill and today, we become masters because it's our 1500th episode! – 1500th episode! (crew cheering) Woo! And what he's saying, fun fact is that we do eat a goat testicle before every single episode – Yeah still chewing it– – Just to prep – Out of my teeth right now

Okay 1500 episodes, that's a milestone while we're talking about it We could not have done this without you, the Mythical Beasts and our amazing Mythical Team We thank you so much, specifically you, intern Derek You work your butt off and you do it with a smile I'm assuming you do that because I only met you briefly

– Okay in honor of number one five zero zero, we are traveling back in time 10 seasons ago to the beginning of what was then a new chapter in GMM story to the very first Will It, Will It Taco – And since that episode, we've gone from a tiny little operation to a full-fledged crew and we now have our very own Mythical Chef Josh – Mm-hmm, and we thought with all these expanding capabilities, we should revisit our very first Will It and bring you a whole new set of totally twisted taco transmutations It's time for– – [Rhett and Link] Will It Taco? Reheated – For the original Will It Taco, we just basically tossed a bunch of stuff into taco shells and called it a day but this time around, Mythical Chef Josh is stretching his culinary legs and crafting tacos from tortilla to salsa

– And we're gonna be doing all-new tacos, so none of the ones that we did the first time around, with one notable exception, we're gonna see if Josh can take a taco that definitely did not will, and make it will this time – Yeah, still pretty much totally afraid But let's get started in a happy place with Girl Scout Cookies, can we make that into a taco? We're calling this the tacolong And the tortilla is made out of Thin Mint, and then inside there's flash-fried Do-si-dos or Dosidos as I will call them – Yeah today they're Dosidos

– Also Trefoils AKA Treefois, AKA Trefois And Tagalongs are in this, all topped with a spicy Samoas salsa – So this is all Girl Scout Cookies, there's no– – Anything else anywhere – Nothing real savory in there except a little bit of the spicy salsa – Dink it

I don't even think there was a dink it and sink it when we did the first– – Oh definitely not – Will It Taco, and sink it – Oh, oh, oh It's a little hard to navigate It completely busted apart but I'm not gonna hold that against you Josh, I'll hold that against the Girl Scouts

– I'm holding mine together pretty well – It's very tasty though – It's a bit dry – Nothing a sip of water won't help – Mm-hmm, mm

– Oh, Josh just passed you a little more taco sauce Just put it right in your mouth – Oh sorry, got a little on your beard, your mustache Save a little for later, mm As you might expect– – This is a little spicy

– This is really good Yeah the spice and the chocolate is interesting, but it's just a little more pizzazz, nothing to complain about – [Rhett] Girl Scout Cookies, will it taco? – [Rhett and Link] Yes – Now fusion tacos are very in right now but that's typically just marinated meat from somewhere around the world tossed into a tortilla and we're gonna take taco fusion to new heights with pho in a taco, we call it the phoco – It's pho

– Yeah but I can't say (bleep) – Oh, no you can't All right Okay here it is It looks fabulous

– [Rhett] Now here's what we got going on here – Colorful – We got a tortilla made from crispy rice noodles, we got braised brisket meatballs inside, it's all garnished with bean sprouts, mint, ba-sil, jalapenos, lime, and hoisin, and then we got some pho broth on the side for dippin' You wanna dip, dink and sink or you wanna dip, dink, dip and sink? – I wanna dink Dink, dip, sink

(clears throat) Still got Girl Scout Cookie – Dink, dip, sink? Dink, dip, sink? – Dink dim sum – Dink dim hmm – Nope – Don't get confused

– [Link] That's another taco Okay And sink, whoa Mm! – You could make body armor out of that shell (laughs) You need to sell that in a Halliburton, Josh

– I would say the crunch in the shell though required a little more movement to get it loose, it's got a satisfying crunch – [Josh] Let it soak like an Oreo in the broth, you know, let it soften – Get some soak time – Oh that's a good idea But it tastes amazing and it's a– – It's becomes pho in your mouth

– Experience – And pho has got a lot of noodles I mean sometimes I'm like man, there's so many noodles – Mm-hmm – And so that same kinda frustration that I approach pho with I'm approaching your taco with so I think we're par for the course

– Pho is something that Lando absolutely loves He always asks to go get some So I will say that this is an authentic pho experience in a taco form, it's pretty magical – Would you say that Lando thinks that it's (bleep) great? (crew laughing) – You gotta stop – [Rhett] Pho

Will it taco? – Yes! – Next up, we wanted to make a taco out of side dishes and some of the most famous side dishes in America are Olive Garden's unlimited soup, salad and breadsticks We call this ♪ That's a taco ♪ – Mm You might get a little side gig at Olive Garden You could do that table-side ♪ Yes I can ♪ All right so, this thing has an olive– – Oh come on, it's from the Olive Garden! If you're gonna eat something from the Olive Garden, you've gotta keep the olive on

That's part of the experience, man – I'm ignoring him – You can take the tomato off but you have to keep the olive on – The tortilla is made from smashed breadsticks and Parmesan, it's filled with strained solids from all the soups – Mm, nothing get my motor running like strained solids

(Link giggles) – Topped with chopped salad and a salsa made from reduced soup liquid – Oh except reduced soup liquid (chuckles) Which are my two favorite things Dink her – Dink it

And sink it – [Rhett] Mm, wow The shell– – Is very good Parmesany – Easier to penetrate

– Again, you have to stop Woo, this is salty, man – Just like the Olive Garden – Woo, yeah, I wake up at 3 am

drinking from a water bottle at my bedside which I always keep there – I always wear a camelback to Olive Garden – I should wear a camelback to sleep as much as like to drink water at 3 am – I gotta be honest with you though, something about it is not completely coming together for me

I feel like I'm just getting a lot of strained solids – Yeah, strange solids too – Like I think it might be less trouble to just go to the Olive Garden – Yeah Olive Garden, will it taco? – [Rhett and Link] No

– Nothing goes better with a plate of tacos and some really nice tequila and you know that good tequila got that worm at the bottom – Put a worm in the bottom – So today we're making the taco out of the tequila worm It's the larvae asada taco Not the larva because there's definitely more than one

– Oh my gosh – Okay we've got a tortilla made from crispy meal worms We've got tequila-marinated wax worms and then we've got some fresh horn worms with that It's all topped with a splash of tequila for good measure Link, what happened? – I don't have any worms, ope

– [Josh] They're in the tortilla too – Yeah I can tell that Oh my goodness – It smells like tequila – Remember that Brooks and Dunn concert in high school where in the parking lot, the guy dared me to eat the worm out of the bottom of the bottle

– Yeah I turned away – [Link] That was the beginning of this madness the more I think about it – I couldn't watch you – I ate that worm just 'cause a stranger told me to do it 'cause he had a cowboy hat on – Well that's kinda what this has become, strangers– – If you wouldn't wear so many cowboy hats, we wouldn't be doing this

– Strangers are telling you to eat worms and so we keep doing it – Exactly – I don't think we're gonna be able to dink this without losing some worms but oh – Might I suggest – You might

Oh wow – Usually don't even like sriracha that much but – Dink it – And – Oh gosh

Boy that is not pleasant Very worm-forward Which was my nickname in high school (crew laughing) – Tell me some more jokes so I can get through this – It doesn't get better

(groans) It's exactly what it was when I put it in my mouth ♪ Got the worm scootin' boogie ♪ Sing me some Brooks and Dunn, we'll get it down I just got a big bite Why? – You can get some down if you do this (exhales sharply) Congratulations, Link

– That was two big swallers I dedicate the first swallow to Brooks Second swallow to Dunn – It's gonna take me awhile to finish this But in the meantime I don't think we need to deliberate any more

Tequila worm, will it taco? – [Rhett and Link] No! – And finally, we're revisiting the awful Will It item that started it all, the pork blood taco (gagging) (crew laughs) It didn't take long at all to realize how different I look (Rhett laughs) – Oh man – It's like, is that the same guy? – It was always your decision – Nothing need to be said – It was always your head

– It went in the mouth and went right into the can – But now Josh has done his best to reclaim the pork blood taco – Now we're calling this taco, God, it's made of blood! I Mexi-can't eat it! (Rhett chuckles) But we're gonna try Is your assertion that we are going to will this? – [Josh] I think you're going to will that – You think? – I think you will like it

Well I don't know what's in your heart and minds I know that whatever you don't eat, I'm gonna eat on the side – Blood? – [Josh] I love that taco I stand by my dish – All right, what he has done is pork blood corn tortillas

– [Rhett] Check – [Link] Filled with stewed blood curd – Check – Topped with blood salsa – Check

– And blood pickled onions – Check! – At least the onions themselves aren't made of blood – [Rhett] Look how juicy this thing is – I wouldn't call it juice I'd probably– – Oh! – Just call it blood

It does look greasy though, maybe that'll help – It's definitely better than just a long slab of pork blood in a hard shell taco – It looks better – I'll give you that Dink it, might wanna keep your plate under it

– Who knew back then we'd be here now? – Oh I knew, Link – You didn't – I always knew Dink it And stink it

(gags) Nothing bad has happened yet (gags) – I'm having more difficult than you just 'cause the thought that – I know it's just like curdled blood from pork

Oh gosh – Does that help? – That crazy unbelievably irony taste is completely gone (gags) What is wrong? It's just the thought? – Ah, got it down But you know what– – Not only did I get it down– – It doesn't actually taste bad I'm just having a mental problem

– I'm taking another bite – What? – Yes Do it, Rhett, do it – Josh – Well you know what, I'll take another bite

– Josh, it's good You made pork blood taste good – [Josh] This is literally the proudest moment of my life, I can't express that enough – Kinda crazy I'm not crying 'cause I'm proud

– I'm a little scared of you right now – I'm crying 'cause I was gagging but it's really miraculous – Is this some sort of sorcery? I don't know how you did it, but it tastes good I want to finish it, but I feel like it would be wise to stop, you know, just two bites That's all I'm gonna do right now

I don't know what happened to you – Well I just don't wanna look at it or think about it but tasting it wasn't bad at all Way to go, Josh! Your job here continues! – I cannot believe it I cannot believe it, but pork blood– – Will it taco– – Now? – [Rhett and Link] Yes! – It did! – That is a great way to ring in 1500 episodes, I kinda feel like it feels wrong to like something like that I feel like I'm supposed to vomit something up in order to call it a day but
