  • - Today we're going on a chicken tender bender.
  • - Let's talk about that.
  • (groovy electronic music)
  • Good Mythical Morning.
  • - Welcome to the season 15 finale!
  • Yes, yeah, you can clap.
  • (crew applauds)
  • Another season in the bag!
  • - Dag and bag it.
  • - We're taking off for a couple of weeks
  • but we will be back on June 3rd for Good Mythical Summer.
  • - Yeah and that means we're gonna have brand new episodes
  • throughout the summer every Monday, Wednesday, Friday,
  • and every Saturday instead of LTAT
  • we're gonna be releasing new videos
  • featuring Mythical Chef Josh over the summer.
  • - Yes, and plus starting next week and all summer long,
  • we're gonna be releasing exclusive content every Thursday
  • on Mythical Society featuring Mythical team members.
  • Lots of cool stuff over there so go check it out
  • at MythicalSociety.com where you can join up.
  • - Yes, today we gon' eat a bunch of chicken tenders.
  • That makes it a very good day.
  • Chicken tenders are truly one of the world's greatest
  • engineering marvels of man-chicken teamwork.
  • All the fun of fried chicken with none of the bones
  • to remind you that it was once a cluckin' creature.
  • - That's why I majored in engineering.
  • We never did anything with chicken though.
  • It was quite a disappointment,
  • that's why I'm doing this now.
  • - When do we get to make chicken fingers?
  • - But which chicken strip reaches the tip of craftsmanship?
  • There's only one way to find out.
  • It's time for
  • ♪ Chickity fingers the fingered chicken ♪
  • ♪ Have a guess as to which one we're lickin' ♪
  • We're going to be blindly tasting six rounds
  • of fast food chicken fingers and ranking them
  • on a scale of one to 10.
  • We're gonna take the average of our two scores
  • to determine the best one.
  • - Okay but we're also gonna be playing
  • against each other to see who can accurately finger
  • the chicken finger restaurant from
  • which the chicken finger originated
  • and whoever gets the most restaurants correctly
  • will assume the role of the Masked Finger.
  • - Uh-oh. (chuckles)
  • The tenders we're gonna be tasting are KFC.
  • - Popeye's.
  • - Raising Cane's.
  • - McDonald's.
  • - Church's Chicken.
  • - And Carl's Jr.
  • - All right let's get rippin'
  • into some drive-through chicken.
  • - Yeah.
  • - [Rhett and Link] Round one.
  • - As you can see, we can't.
  • - And all the chicken tenders will be brought to us
  • on the patent pending Chicken Finger Bringer Thinger.
  • Bring it in!
  • - Oh yeah.
  • There it is.
  • Oh that's a crunchy one.
  • - Oh wow.
  • - Very crunchy finger.
  • - Now I'm not a chicken finger God.
  • I never get chicken fingers.
  • - Oh really? - No.
  • - Sadly Bojangles' is not in our repertoire today.
  • It was so hard for us to get ahold of it.
  • But I just wanted to give 'em a shout-out.
  • - The first thing I'm thinking is
  • I should eat chicken finger more, that's pretty good.
  • - Okay then what do you rate it?
  • You really like it? - I don't really like it,
  • but I like it.
  • - I don't love it,
  • I think it's going too hard with the crunchy.
  • That's the outer fried-- - Too much crunch, huh?
  • - Yeah I think you can have too much crunch,
  • so on a scale of, am I going scale of one to five
  • or one to 10? - One to 10.
  • - Okay I'm gonna give this...
  • It tastes good though, I'm gonna give it a six.
  • - Oh you know what, I was thinking six.
  • - I know. - I enjoyed it,
  • but I think that you can do better chicken fingers.
  • - I know where this is from 100%.
  • - [Stevie] Okay three--
  • - Whoa, really?
  • You know? - Oh yeah.
  • - Okay.
  • - [Stevie] Two, one.
  • - Popeye's. - Church's Chicken.
  • (chuckles)
  • - Since when you got a Church's finger?
  • - Remember when we used to go to Pullen Park?
  • I'd always swing by the Church's Chicken
  • before we'd go over there. - Okay.
  • - [Rhett and Link] Round two.
  • - Bring it in. - Give me that finger.
  • There it is. - Wow, okay.
  • - This one, it seems to be a more honest cut of meat.
  • - Huh!
  • Yeah that first one was dishonest,
  • that's what I was thinking the whole time.
  • - I'm saying it--
  • - It's like a strip of chicken.
  • - It's a strip of chicken that seems less processed
  • than the previous one.
  • - I don't disagree with that.
  • - It's higher quality.
  • I actually don't think it tastes better though.
  • - Can you bring it back in 'cause I agree
  • with your assessment but I don't think it tastes great.
  • - [Link] Yeah.
  • - Oh I got to a juicy part.
  • - Oh you likin' it better?
  • - There's a juicy part in the middle.
  • - Well I didn't get a juicy part in the middle.
  • Is it like what, like a Gusher?
  • - Yeah bring Link's Gusher in.
  • - It's like a gushing chicken finger?
  • - Show him the Gusher in the middle.
  • He's gotta go deeper.
  • You know what I'm talking about, you get a little gush?
  • - I didn't get a gush, man.
  • - Ah, wrong chicken.
  • That's an honest gushing chicken.
  • But I feel like they could have done more.
  • I think they're trying to let the chicken sing
  • a little too much. - Yep, yep,
  • and it's just clucking.
  • - Okay I've got a little bit of a shot in the dark here.
  • - What's your rating though?
  • I give it a four.
  • - I give it a five.
  • - Oh okay, I know where this is from too.
  • - Really? - Yeah.
  • - [Stevie] Three, two, one.
  • - Raising Cane's. - Carl's Jr.
  • Never been to Raising Cane's.
  • - That's why I said it 'cause I've never been there.
  • - [Rhett and Link] Round three.
  • - Rhett I wanna tell you regardless of the outcome,
  • I'm having a great time.
  • - Oh yeah I mean we're just eating tenders.
  • - We're livin' the friggin' dream.
  • - We're having people bring us tenders--
  • - Look at us. - On sticks.
  • I don't even know what it looks like.
  • I haven't even seen it, that's the beautiful thing.
  • - What if in first grade Miss Locklear said,
  • "Okay class, you two guys in the back,
  • "you're gonna make a living eating tenders on the internet."
  • - I would have been like, "What's a tender?"
  • - I'd be like, "What's the internet?"
  • - All right bring it in.
  • - Ow.
  • There it is.
  • That was a pointy one.
  • Mm. (Rhett chuckles)
  • There's a little something in this.
  • - That's a good piece of chicken!
  • - Something in this batter, it's good.
  • And different.
  • - Oh, hold on.
  • Bring it back. - What is this?
  • Hmm.
  • That is tasty.
  • I hear some weird noises over there.
  • What's happening?
  • - I stole the tender.
  • - You took the whole thing? - Yeah.
  • - You like it that much?
  • - Oh man. - You gonna give it a 10?
  • - No.
  • - You gonna give it a nine?
  • - That's not how this works.
  • - You gonna give it an eight?
  • Or are you going with a seven?
  • - I'm gonna give it a nine.
  • - I think it is a great chicken tender
  • and I don't think I've ever tasted it before.
  • Man.
  • - I hope that's not like--
  • - I'm gonna give a nine too, it was really good.
  • - [Stevie] Okay ready to guess?
  • - And I'm-- - Ugh, I don't--
  • - Man. - Yes?
  • - [Stevie] Okay, three, two, one.
  • - KFC? - Popeye's.
  • - It might be Popeye's.
  • It feels like a place that's dedicated to chicken.
  • - I didn't taste 11 herbs.
  • - I thought I tasted at least 10.
  • - [Rhett and Link] Round four.
  • - Okay tenderize us.
  • (Link purrs)
  • Oh, mm.
  • - [Link] Okay.
  • - Whoa.
  • That's crunchy, man.
  • - Yeah that could do some damage.
  • You could like put that on the tip of a spear
  • and use it as an abrasive.
  • - Hmm, it has a familiar taste.
  • A little too salty.
  • - I think it tastes pretty good though.
  • - It's good though, I mean all of them have tasted good.
  • - The meat itself is very tender.
  • Man I've had this before.
  • I don't think KFC is that crunchy.
  • I associated KFC with more of a softness.
  • - Yeah. - As well as the herbs
  • and spices.
  • - That is a good tender though.
  • - I've had this before.
  • - I'm gonna give it a six.
  • - I really like this.
  • I'm gonna give it an eight.
  • - Okay.
  • I got my guess.
  • - Man, where is this from?
  • - [Stevie] Three, two, one.
  • - Popeye's. - McDonald's?
  • It can't be McDonald's.
  • - [Rhett and Link] Round five.
  • - Love me tender.
  • This one, very unique taste.
  • I would say it's almost like a burnt taste
  • in the flour.
  • - A little dry.
  • Doesn't taste very honest.
  • - I'm not lovin' this chicken tender.
  • - No.
  • ♪ I'm not lovin' it ♪
  • Maybe it's McDonald's. - Is that a hint
  • because that's what I'm thinking.
  • - Oh yeah?
  • - I'm gonna give this one,
  • this is my least favorite I've had so far,
  • I'm gonna give it a five.
  • - I'm gonna give it a four. - It's a little dense
  • and it's a little,
  • I don't know, I don't like the way
  • this is all working together.
  • Tastes a little processed.
  • - To me it's just got a burnt taste, period.
  • I mean that's the problem.
  • - Burnt period, I'm done.
  • - Oh gosh, what am I gonna do?
  • - Ready? - Yeah.
  • - [Stevie] Three, two, one.
  • - [Both] McDonald's.
  • - Well we agree. - Yeah we do.
  • - [Rhett and Link] Round six.
  • - Last one.
  • - The final finger.
  • - Okay.
  • It's a flatter one.
  • This one's much more honest than most of the others as well.
  • - Yeah this is honest, can I get some more?
  • - Mm, I don't love it.
  • I don't hate it.
  • I kinda, I kinda six it.
  • Let me have another little nibble.
  • Come on now, come on.
  • - I actually am fond of this one.
  • I'm like eight fond of this one.
  • I like it, I like the honestness
  • and there's a pepperiness in the batter.
  • They're not trying to overdo it too much.
  • Yeah, seems like high quality chicken,
  • I'm gonna give it a eight.
  • - Oh wow an eight. - Yeah.
  • - All right I'm ready to guess.
  • - [Stevie] Okay, three, two, one.
  • - [Both] Carl's Jr.
  • - Oh we agree, let's remove the masks.
  • Come back into the real world
  • where people don't feed you chicken fingers
  • just because you open your mouth,
  • and let's find out what you already know.
  • Who won. - Guys I'm really proud
  • of you today. - Oh yeah?

  • - Put it on. - Learned a lot today
  • because-- - It's chicken feet.
  • - [Stevie] The best chicken finger according to you--
  • - You earned it, put it on. - Was from Carl's Jr.
  • - [Link] And was that the last one or no?
  • - [Rhett] No that was that one that we both gave a nine.

  • They do a good chicken tender--
