Rhett and Link
On December 23rd, 2016, the YouTube comedy duo of Rhett McLaughlin and Charles “Link” Neal III were featured on The Tonight Show, sandwiched between fellow guests Adam Driver and R. Kelly. Now let's rewind to 2006, when the two were just a pair of former engineers looking to unleash their creativity. Through two different channels – Rhett and Link and Good Mythical Morning – McLaughlin and Neal found their way to a combined 15 million subscribers along with appearances on Epic Rap Battles of History and their own IFC television show; multiple sponsorships, commercials, and partnerships with companies like Taco Bell, Hot Pockets and Buick; and, to top it off, guest spots on Lopez Tonight, Conan, and Last Call with Carson Daly. As of 2016, the duo has won a handful of Webby, Streamy and Short Awards.
