6 Strangest Hobbies Ever


I wonder what Paris Hilton would look
like as a taxidermized squirrel. Let’s talk about that. ♪ (theme music) ♪ – Good Mythical Morning!
– Hobbies can be… …healthy habits. Whether it’s going to
the movies or taking pictures of gravestones. Listen, we’re not here to
talk about what you choose to do with your free time. Unless, of course,
you choose to do something so strange with your free time that we
have to talk about it. We have scoured the depths of the
Internet and found some of the strangest hobbies out there, so let’s
get started with ♪ (Hobby Bobby Bo-Bobby Fanana
Fana Strange Hobbies) ♪ (both Rhett & Link) ♪ (Hobbies!) ♪ – (laughing)
– (laughing) You ever been watching… – …the news and you look over the…
– No. …the person who’s being interviewed’s
shoulder and there’s, like someone… – …trying to get in the shot?
– Oh, yeah. Those jerks. Well, Paul Yarrow of South London has
made this his hobby. – Oh, okay.
– Photobombing news reports. Over a few months, Paul appeared in
over 20 live news reports across various London stations. Let’s just watch
this montage. – (man talking)
– (Rhett) That’s definitely England. (Link) Yep. Which one do you
think he is? (Rhett) I think he’s the guy in the back.
He’s about to rest his cheek… – …against that.
– (Link) And there he is. Look. (Rhett) Oh. He’s happy about this one.
– He’s thinking about something. (Link) He’s hungry.
He’s licking his lips. – (Rhett laughing)
– (Link) It’s like he’s that guy’s… …bodyguard, you know? (Rhett) Yeah. That guy doesn’t
need a bodyguard. (Link) He’s listening. He’s shaking
his head. (Rhett) Okay, but… all right. (Rhett) What is he…
Is he gonna pop up? (Link) Where is he? Wait for it. (Link) Nope, that’s not him. – (Link) Aaaaand there it is!
– (Rhett laughing) – (Rhett) Oh, this is the “au naturel” way.
– (Link) Yeah. Strollin’ in. – (Rhett) He’s not naked.
– (Link) And this guy’s trying to get… – …him out of the shot. Look.
– (Rhett) It’s like, “No, no. I’m the… …guy that’s supposed to be in the
background. Trust me. I’m supposed… – …to do this.”
– (Link) He will not leave the shot. Look. (Link) And then — eh — he’s not in
this one yet. I wonder if he’s gonna… …show up. Come on, Paul. Where are you?
This is your — there you go! (Rhett laughing) Oh, yeah!
He’s got the same bag. – (Rhett) Is this the same day?
– (Link laughing) He’s just always ready… – …on his phone, man.
– (Rhett) Get close. Get close. – (Rhett) Get closer. Get closer!
– (Link) And look how he gets… …right behind the person so that the
camera can’t angle him out. (Rhett) Right. Oh, oh! Eye contact.
You gotta make a little eye contact. – (Rhett) Oh, there it is!
– (Link) Look. The smile. – (laughing) I love this guy!
– He got a little… – I usually hate those dudes.
– He got a little cheeky, baby. You know the thing I like about him?
He doesn’t get back there and do… – …some obscene dance or something…
– Right. -. ..and bunch of attention to himself.
– He keeps it cool! – He’s just like, “I’m just shopping.”
– “Hello. Cheeky, baby. – I like it.
– Yeah, he’s my favorite person right now. – Paul, call me. On Twitter.
– Okay. Okay, uh… – I’m not gonna give you my number.
– How about a guy whose hobby it is… …to paint baseballs? And when I say
that, what I mean is, a guy whose job it is to paint one baseball over and over
and over again. – His name is… This is a hobby.
– Is this a job or a hobby? – Okay. He doesn’t get paid to do it.
– He doesn’t. Michael Carmichael. Right off the bat,
he gets points for that. – Mm. 26 points.
– I mean, he’s got “car” in the middle… – …of two first names. Right?
– (laughing) He does yes. – And, I mean, the same name.
– Yeah. – That’s important.
– Yeah, Link Carlink. – Yeah.
– So anyway, when he’s in high school… – …he has an accident. I don’t mean…
– Whoops! …he poops his pants. I mean he spills
paint onto a baseball. – I knew that.
– And then he’s like, “Huh! That gives… …me an idea. I’m going to paint that
baseball again. And again. And again. And again and again and again until
he gets to a thousand layers. – Whoa!
– This is a project, at this point. But then he has a child. And I know
what you’re thinking. (clicks with mouth) Starts painting
the child. No! – Good.
– He says, ” I wanna starts over… – …with my son so he can be…
– (Link) Bonding hobby. That’s cool – …a part of it.” Gets rid of the other
baseball. Actually probably puts it on a shelf somewhere. Starts painting
a new baseball in 1977. He has painted it every single day, at least one layer,
for over 40 years. – What?
– Guinness World Record for largest… …ball of paint. Probably also the
largest baseball at this point. – I don’t know how that works.
– [inaudible] He sometimes paints up to 10 layers
if it’s dry enough. How big is this thing now?
As big as him! (Rhett) It weighs two-and-a-half tons
at this point. – (Link) Whoa!
– (Rhett) I mean, look at that thing. (Rhett) It’s as tall as he is.
And he lets guests come and paint it. Nest time we’re in Alexandria, Indiana,
Link, you know what we’re doing. We’re breaking out the paintbrushes and
painting a baseball. This baseball. Wow. And so it’s on display? Like, people
can go there and see it? – Yeah, he’s got a big sign.
– Oh. – It’s a roadside attraction.
– That’s cool: a nice hobby where… …you can bond with your son and
inhale a lot of paint. – Yeah, right.
– Win, win. Carmichael number one. – Win.
– 26 points. All right, I got one… …for ya. 91-year-old Coral Charles-Dunne
from Birmingham. – Hm.
– Coral’s hobby is knitting. – Boobs. She knits…
– She repairs people’s boobs? No, she knits knitting materials into
boobs. Just look at this picture. (Link) There she is, smiling. If you
look at the bottom of the frame, you’ll see those are boobs that she
has knitted. (Rhett) Is this like an alternative
to breast implants? – I don’t understand.
– It is an educational tool used… – …by expectant moms…
– “This is what a boob looks… – …looks like, kids.”
– …to learn the techniques for… …breastfeeding. I thought expectant moms
had their own. – You put milk in there?
– No. I don’t know the details. – I don’t understand. I’m still confused.
– But listen. Just focus on her face… …and how sweet she is and then
you’re like, “All right. Whatever she… …wants to do. I’m sure there’s something
we can learn.” But the picture, it looks like they took some sort of mother pig,
turned it upside-down. Like a knitted… – …mama pig or something.
– Yeah, that’s what I like to… – …think happened.
– Because, you know, they have a… – …lot of ninnies. Right.
– Yeah, they do. They have more than two. More than two. Some women have
more than two. Some men have… – …extra nipples.
– Right, that woman in Total Recall. – She can teach people about that.
– Mm. – It could also be used as pillows.
– If you wanna be that woman from… …Total Recall, you call up this woman
and she just give you an extra one. – Mhm.
– (laughing) Okay, next up is… – Okay, next up is Ian Silva.
– I’ve learned a lot. I think it… – …was educational.
– Yeah, very educational. He’s a… …commuter train driver in Sydney,
Australia. And he was asked a question one time on Reddit, or he responded to
a question that was posed: “What do you like to do for fun when you’re alone?”
And he responded with, “I like to to draw maps of an imaginary place that
I’ve invented in my mind.” And it completely blew up, because it’s
not just, like, some little sketch-eroony. – This is a freaking — look at the detail.
– (Link) He wasn’t lying. He already… – …did it.
– No, this is his hobby. It is the… – What? That is amazing!
– …Koana islands. (Rhett) It is a series of islands,
and he has not just done these incredibly detailed maps. He’s also got
all these details about the islands themselves. There’s 93 million residents.
There’s 11 national parks. It’s ranked among the world’s best countries to
live in. That’s really for you to say, Ian. I mean, you came up with this in your mind.
I don’t think you get to say it’s the best place to live just because it’s
in your mind. But it is pretty cool. Yeah. There’s a lot of highways.
Like, the interconnectedness… – (Rhett) Yeah, lots.
– of the transportation is very advanced. Road travel is very important on these
islands. – Yeah, lotta interstates.
– Baseball is very important. – Is it?
– If there’s an emergency, you don’t… – …dial 9-1-1. You dial 7-7-7. So if we
every get sucked into this world, Link, which is want to happen when you stare
at a map too long. I’m warning you… …right now! Don’t stare at it
too long! You might get sucked in there, but we’ll dial 7-7-7 to get you out.
He also is developing a language, a mix of Old Norse and English that is
going to be spoken by these people. He doesn’t have a name for it, but, Ian,
I am suggesting Old Norseglish. – Feel free to use that. No copyright.
– I mean, this is really cool. – (Link) Like, his subway system.
– (Rhett) It’s incredibly intricate! And he’s constantly — this is his hobby:
to add details to these islands. – I’d frame that and put it on my walls.
– “I would at least frame that.” But not like over my couch, but not
in the restroom, either. I’d put it over like, a hallway that’s a
secondary hallway. Okay. Well, maybe he’ll send
you one, Link. Next up, we have Susan Mullins from
Fort Campbell, Tennessee. – She likes squirrels.
– Yeah? – Dead ones. She turns them into…
– (laughing) …art. She taxidermizes squirrels
and, uh… here you go. You’ve got a… – …granny squirrel. And here you’ve…
– (Rhett) Mhm. – …got a 1920s flapper squirrel.
– (Rhett) I like that one. – (Link) It has cleavage.
– (Rhett) Yeah. Why, it should. I’ve never seen a squirrel with
so much cleavage. They have move cleavage. Sometimes you
can’t tell because they’re usually not… – …in dresses.
– She could be in cahoots with the… – …knitted boob lady.
– Yeah, yeah. Right. – Cahooters with her. (laughing)
– (laughing) – Oh, gosh.
– The squirrels come from a man… …in Georgia who eats them and then
gives her the skins. Right. Because you don’t need the insides
to do this. – (Link) Here’s a tennis squirrel.
– (Rhett) Oh, tennis squirrel! (Rhett) Sign me up. Can I get one
on these? Can I buy one? You can buy them on eBay. She sells
them from $75 to $250 dollars. Last but not least, her favorite is
Paris Hilton with portable CD player. Okay. I want one, and will you please
give me one for my birthday? – That’s my request.
– With a portable CD player? Okay, Link. Next up, we’ve got
former computer engineer Chuck Lamb from Ohio. Lifelong dream of becoming
an actor, but according to him, he had no acting experience and he
wasn’t very good looking, so he took an unorthodox path, and he
started faking his own death, repeatedly. And then getting his wife to take pictures
of him and posting it on his website, deadbodyguy.com.
This is absolutely incredible. Why, because if people think he’s
dead, then he could get acting jobs? Don’t worry about the logic. Just look
at the pictures. – Oh.
– Here he is. He does these little… …captions. “Racing the automatic
garage door. He lost.” – (Rhett” Screwed again.”
– (Link) Ooh! – (Rhett) “Screw to the side of the head.”
– (Link) Ooh, gross! (Rhett) “Should have towel dried.” (Rhett laughing) “Oh, by the way,
I’m having an affair.” (Rhett) As you can see, the wife
has used the rolling pin to… – …bash his brains in.
– (Link) Ooh. – This is gross. This is kinda morbid.
– This has actually worked. He’s got his game down, too.
His eyes are open. Because of this, this website and its
popularity, he’s actually landed appearances in movies like
Kentucky Horror Show and, one of – …your favorites, I know, ThanksKilling.
– Yes! Holiday classic. – Yes! He was in ThanksKilling!
– He was. He was in ThanksKilling. Chuck was
in ThanksKilling. – You know what? He was the dead guy.
– His ultimate goal is to be on… …Law & Order. He says, “If I get on
Law & Order, I will shut down everything and mission accomplished.” But you know
what, Link? There’s a new one that’s not on DeadBodyGuy that you can
only see on this show. It’s not Law & Order, but it is Good Mythical
Morning. Look what Chuck did for… – …us right here.
– (Link) Or we did for him. – (Link) Did we kill him?
– (Rhett laughing) No! He died… …watching Good Mythical Morning!
He didn’t send a caption with this one, but I added “Should have stayed
hydrated during GMM marathon.” – (laughing) Oh, poor guy.
– (laughing) Because that happens… – …sometimes, you know?
– Poor guy didn’t stay hydrated. – Thanks to Chuck!
– Mythical Beasts, take up a nice… – …creative hobby, and don’t forget to
– (both) Stay hydrated! Thanks for linking, commenting, and
subscribing. – You know what time it is.
– (all) Hi! – I’m [Georgi].
– I’m [Stefan]. – I’m [Vanya].
– And I’m [Bessie], and this is… …Sofia, Bulgaria. This is
Mythicon 2016. (all) And it’s time to spin
The Wheel of Mythicality! It is the next-to-last day on
Earth for you — No! — for you to get this “Let the Tigers Tiger” t-shirt!

  1. So, watching this in 2018. Uhm didn’t know that Rhett had top teeth. Never seen them before. This is ground breaking. 😂 in present videos the beard is luscious and the mustache is his lip.

  2. watching this in 2018.
    It's like Rhett's face was smaller! does the beard really make that big of a difference!?

  3. No, you know what? Let’s not talk about that. Let’s leave that alone. Let’s not imagine celebrities as taxidermized squirrel. Let’s shut off our phones, go outside, pet a cat, or feed a horse. Let’s enjoy our mortal lives while we can.

  4. My grandfather was in the Navy in the 70's and he says he made so much money because people would bet he didn't have an extra nipple! LOL.

  5. The dead guy is the dad in Thankskilling right? I thought I recognized him but I never thought it would be from that movie lmao

  6. Wow… That guy’s hobby, of making maps of places in his imagination, makes me want to do that, too. I’ve actually toyed with this idea before, a pretty good time ago; I just never was able to do it without my perfectionist side revealing itself. I would start to need to invent groups of people and creatures that inhabited the lands depicted in the maps. Then I would need to develop a lexicon of all the languages that would exist in this fantasy world. It goes on like this until there’s nothing needed, anymore, for this fantasy land to be plausible. So, as you can probably tell, it would be a huge undertaking if I were to be unable to ignore my perfectionist side, and I’m definitely unable to ignore my perfectionist side.

  7. They were talking about the paint ball and I was like hey! That’s in Indiana! It’s been on the news a few times. Generally on the Only In Indiana segments!

  8. I can’t believe one of my hobbies was said, I too am creating my map of my own world and thinking about creating several languages to go with it, mine is to go with a book I have been writing though.

  9. I wonder if link is ever surprised by the sarcastic faces Rhett makes at him when he's not looking? 7:39 – 41 is great. Because he looked so sincere right before that when link was looking at him.

  10. That guy with the Koana Islands… That is absolutely beautiful and brilliant. A-plus, man! You're a wonder! Please keep it up!

  11. My most recent hobby is getting tattoos of important things that have happened in my life on my thigh for my little sister who passed away- like my graduation cap, getting accepted into uni

    – also I’m Bulgarian so I flipped

  12. Wow. That map guy definitely plays TRPG. That's the only type of game where the GM makes his own map.

  13. Okay TBH the maps were actually awesome, I want to be able to do that or have him make a game where we can explore The Koana Islands and live how a Koanan would live

  14. The nipple hats are for babies to wear while their moms breast feed. Kind of an eff you to the people who think breast feeding is inappropriate or gross.

  15. Random Guy: makes map and history for an imaginary place and gets featured on GMM
    Every Fantasy Writer Ever: Am I a joke to you?

  16. When they said baseball painting I pictured a scene being painted onto the baseball itself. Which would be absolutely awesome!! I could see people paying quite a bit for baseballs featuring iconic scenes & their favorite players.
    I may only have though of this because my grandmother did oil paintings on native American drums when I was younger.

  17. Ahoyhoy There, Fellow YouTuberinos! I used to take Squirrel bones that I found in the field and make clever creature skeletons . I had the Squirmaid (Squirrel Mermaid) James the Booze Rat , and Allen

  18. I don't know if this is a weird hobby but I like to find dead animals and decompose them in my backyard and keep the skull and bones in my living room to educate my daughter. Weird or What?
