Today we find out
if I am a Super Tasker. Let’s talk about that. ♪(intro music)♪ Good Mythical Morning. Thank you for making us
a part of your daily routine. Mythical Beasts, a lot of you
probably think that you’re a great multi-tasker. You can listen to music.
You can text your girlfriend. You can do homework,
all at the same time, while devoting equal attention
to each one of those things until, all of a sudden,
your dad texts you and says, “Why are you calling me,
Sugar Pumpkin Poots.” You know why? Because you’re not
a good multi-tasker. Hardly anybody is actually
a good multi-tasker. Humans are horrible multi-taskers. In fairness, my Dad’s name was
Sugar Pumpkin Poots – (crew laughs)
– legally, until he changed it. Just for the show, right. Right.
To Charles. Now, are you
a good multi-tasker? Let me think about that.
No! You’re not, right. But it turns out
there may be hope, because research suggests
that people who think they’re great at multi-tasking
are actually bad at multi-tasking, and maybe people who think they suck
at multi-tasking are actually great at multi-tasking. Only two percent
of the world’s population is what you would call,
a Super Tasker. Someone who can actually
divert their attention – in two different places or more.
– Two percent only? Wow! Yeah, and actually devote
attention to them We’re going to find out, today,
if you are a Super Tasker, as we play, – ♪(swing music)♪
– (Rhett) A multi-tisket, a multi-tasket (Rhett) Multi-tasking is hard
in a basket. Okay, now there are a lot
of multi-tasking tests, that are more comprehensive. Is there a basket though?
I don’t see a basket. No, there’s no basket, and there’s
no lotion to put in the basket. Sorry. There are these comprehensive tests,
and we’ve linked to those in the description that you can take.
But we’re going to do our own version of that, to see just how great
of a multi-tasker you are. – Are you ready for test one?
– (whines) Yes. ♪(bouncy music)♪ Okay, Link, for this test– – You’re thirsty today, huh?
– Oh, yeah. – But I’m listening to you.
– You getting enough water? I’m drinking, listening.
Same time. Okay, you’re going to see a slide,
right there, it’s going to say letter or it’s going to say number. And then, after that, you’re going
to see another slide that’s going to have a letter
and a number on it. You’re going to, if it says letter,
you’re going to say whether or not that letter is a vowel or a consonant. And, if it says number,
you’re going to say whether or not that number is odd or even. You’ll understand as you
play the game. If you don’t understand
you will in a second. Are you ready? (whines) Yes. Let’s go. Letter. – Even.
– (buzzer sound) (crew laughs) – Odd
– (ding sound) Right. – X.
– (buzzer sound) You’re saying the wrong one. Letter. – Vow– Consonant.
– (ding sound) Yup. – Number. Odd.
– (ding sound) Yup. Letter. – Con– Vowel.
– (ding sound) (laughs) – Woah.
– What? – Okay, not off to a good start.
– What? That’s a hard test, man. – I think you said–
– I didn’t understand the freaking instructions. Con-vow, Ca-vow, cow.
You said cow, basically. I got speech jammed. And then you just saw a number,
and you would be, like, “Number.” (crew laughs) You do understand what you
were trying to do on there, right? Barely. – Can I try again?
– No. – We’re going to move on.
– I don’t want to do worse a second time. That was just a warm-up. I’m warm. Okay, you’re warmed-up
for test number two. ♪(bouncy music)♪ Okay, I’m not encouraged
at this point, but I do think we’re going
to all be entertained. That was tough, man. This one–
The task is a little simpler. You’re going to see a video,
and you’re going to hear a voice-over, that someone named me
may have recorded, and you’re going to hear details
that are totally different. You’re going to see a story,
and you’re going to hear a story, and they’re completely unrelated,
but then I’m going to ask you a series of questions
about either the video, and, or the voice-over,
and you give me the answers. I think I know what the problem was
with the last one. I was looking at something,
I wasn’t listening to you. Oh, yeah. Well, you should at least listen to me. Right. – I should close my eyes.
– That’s the one task. Whenever you give instruction now,
I need to keep my eyes closed. – So you’re just going to watch the video–
– I got it. (Rhett) Kevin was walking up to
the salad bar at Souplantation and trying to decide which
baked potato toppings he wanted to enjoy, when, all of a sudden,
he felt the ground rumble beneath his feet. The rumbling grew and grew,
plates started flying off shelves, but Kevin was drunk with the power
of choice. He topped his pomme de terre
with green onions, cheese whiz, sour cream, bacon bits,
and, in a true temptation of fate, extra spicy, no beans,
all-beef chili. Just as Kevin brought the first bite
up to his lips, the front door burst open, and not one, not two, but twelve bulls
came charging straight for Kevin. As quickly as he could, Kevin jumped
on the top of the salad bar sneeze guard. Suddenly the motto from his old
Boy Scout troop, number three, forty nine, popped into his head, ‘Leave no fully-loaded
baked potato behind.’ Kevin grabbed the decorative
over-sized fork from the wall behind him, it would be his sword,
and the chili lid his shield. He stepped off the salad bar
and onto the backs of the beasts. Hopping from one to the next
until he was within reach of his spud-bud. Letting out a blood curdling shriek,
he leapt off of a bull and landed face-first in his potato plate. Just as he enjoyed his first bite,
he was gored to death by the only spotted bull in the herd. The end. (crew laughs) Your concentration face
is a lot like your constipated face. Oh, man, that was–
I need another drink. Alright, here we go. Link, who really stole Alex’s pineapple? – Lizzie.
– (ding sound) Correct. What did Kevin use as his shield? (crew laughs) A plate. – It was a chili lid.
– (buzzer sound) What restaurant was Kevin dining at? – The Souplantation
– Nice. (ding sound) What color was the bull
that gored Kevin? – Black and white.
– Hmm. – Black. White.
– (crew laughs) – That’s not– It was spotted.
– Spotted, yeah. Black and white. Spotted. – That’s what you were thinking?
– I pictured it. Yeah. (ding sound) What number was Kevin’s Boy Scout troop? Three numbers. Three, twenty six. Oh!
Three, forty nine. – Uh!
– (buzzer sound) What was the third object Alex used
to torture Mike? Clippers…
Fish. The pudding was second. – It was the hairbrush.
– Hairbrush. – (buzzer sound)
– But that’s not bad, man. Hairbrush was third, then the fish. You got three out of six right. So you’re half of a Super Tasker,
I guess. But what does it mean? What does it mean? – Lizzie is evil.
– That’s for you to figure out. And Kevin is awesome. Okay, Link, hey, listen,
the great news here, is that you’re getting better. Maybe you’re going to super excel
at test number three. ♪(bouncy music)♪ Okay, Link, welcome to test number three. As you can see,
you’re over there now. (Rhett) And there are three – (Rhett) familiar looking babies–
– There’s some babies. (Rhett) In front of you,
with different color outfits on. Here’s what’s going to happen. Each time one of these babies cries,
you have to change their diapers with the corresponding diaper
that is behind you, on that table. Hello, little baby. – (Rhett) Link, it’s important that you–
– This hurt? – (Rhett) It’s important that you listen.
– I’m listening. You’ve got to multi-task. I’m listening, and I’m looking. (Rhett) You’ve got to change those diapers
according to the color of the toboggan, (Rhett) or the beanie.
Whatever you want to call it. And then, while you’re doing that,
I’m going to be asking you a series of yes, or no questions,
that you should know the answer to, okay? You just give me the answers,
yes or no. Yes or no. In-between some of the questions,
I’ll be saying words. – Just random
– (both) words. And then, at any point I say, recall,
you have to say those words back to me, in the order that you have heard them Good luck. Okay?
You ready? (whines) Yes. Three, two, one, go. – (cries)
– Got to change his diaper. – (Rhett) Is your middle child named–
– (yells) Is your middle child named, Lilly. No. (Rhett) Does two plus five minus one
equal six? No. Wrong. Owl. (Rhett) Is a hamburger a sandwich? Okay, okay.
Yes. Dumplings. (Rhett) Recall. Owl dumplings. (Rhett) Is Mark Wahlberg a vampire? No. (Link) Don’t you pee on me. – (Rhett) Are you left handed?
– What? Are you left handed? No.
Yes, maybe. (Rhett) Taste. Are hammer pants still cool? Yes. (Rhett) Like. – Like?
– (Rhett) Like. Have you ever touched a college
professor’s shoulder with your butt? Yes. (Rhett) Recall. Owl–
I don’t know. Plate is not one of the words. – (Rhett) Dumplings.
– I don’t know any of the other words. – Owl dumplings.
– (Link) Owl dumplings. – (Rhett) Tastes like.
– Taste like hamburger. Is your dad actually just you
sent back from the future making you your own father? Yes. (Rhett) Do I look like a praying mantis
when I shave my beard? (Link) Yes. (Rhett) Would you ever pull
my dry weenis? Would you ever pull
my dry weenis? No–
Yes. (Rhett) You have, yes. Grandpa. (laughs) I’m not your–
Yes, grandpa. (Rhett) Recall. Owl dumpling… – (Link) Weenis grandpa.
– (laughs) (Rhett) Owl dumpling weenis grandpa
is incorrect. It’s, owl dumplings taste like grandpa. But, Link, I think it’s safe to say, – (Rhett) you’re not a multi-tasker.
– (crew laughs) But I am wet. And that wasn’t water.
What’s up? They actually peed on you? I think that was actual pee. I don’t know how that happened physically. (laughs) We learned a lot today.
