We all have that one friend that gives us carte blanche to be silly, spontaneous, inappropriate, to gross each other out, and make each other howl with laughter. Pipe in some original music, scripted sequiturs, and point a camera at it, and that’s the genesis of Rhett & Link boiled down to its raw essence. Childhood friends, Rhett McLaughlin and Charles Lincoln “Link” Neal III capitalized on that chemistry, developing an inspired and hilarious YouTube channel that allowed them to embrace their shared brand of humor as “Internetainers.” “We coined the moniker “internetainer” very early on in our YouTube career. We …

New Music Video: Daryl Hance Has a Sense of Humor?

Mofro co-founder Daryl Hance has a new video for the song “Inside” from 2016’s Wild Blue Iris album.
