Rhett and Link as Kids

Before Rhett and Link became YouTube sensations, they were simply two lads who became friends on their first day at Buies Creek Elementary School in Buies Creek, Harnett County, North Carolina. As first graders, they had a lot in common, including their passion to create and act out funny skits. But elementary school won’t be the only place they’ll attend together. In the years that followed, Rhett and Link attended the same middle school followed by high-school at Harnett Central High School. Following their graduation from high school, they both proceeded to North Carolina State University. Even at NCSU, they shared the same apartment and studied to be engineers.

Although they had co-executed several projects together since they were fourteen, Rhett and Link eventually went the way of corporate career after graduating from college. Rhett pursued a career in Civil Engineering, working with Black and Veatch, while Link followed his expertise as an Industrial Engineer at IBM. However, that career path didn’t stand for long as they both saw greater opportunities in the then-new platform YouTube. They soon quit their jobs to pursue a comedy career and went on to establish five YouTube channels which, today, boast of millions of views and subscribers. The results are stunning. In 2014, a few years after launch, their channel has been ranked No. 35 on New Media Rockstars Top 100 Channels list. More so, their video My OCD (Song) and Epic Rap Battle: Nerd vs. Geek have garnered over 49 million views and 44 million views respectively. But that’s not all.

Rhett & Link are bestselling authors too. Their book, Book of Mythicality: A Field Guide to Curiosity, Creativity, and Tomfoolery, was published by Crown Archetype. The duo has received at least twelve distinguished awards, seven nominations and seven honors.
