  1. People are calling this video 'deep' but it wasn't even subtle. At all. Seeing that there's nothing even slightly positive shown about early industry in the video, this is clearly 100% propaganda.

  2. Dear over 3K people,

    You all are soft.

    People with a sense of humor

    P.S. did you know that the smarter you are the easier it is to understand sarcasm?

  3. Hey they fixed it!! The audio is normal! Everyone come back and listen to it cause this is the real song! I LOVE IT

  4. Down with America dig down dig down a new world underneath us is where we're bond down with America dig dig down. Edit: I forgot the rest

  5. China and India are the worst polluters in the world. America isn’t a problem when it come to pollution.
    If you wanna talk issues talk about how we waist food…..and we still are fat.

  6. I have always appreciated how good Rhett and Link were with lyrics, but I think this song…is the best one they have ever done.
    There are multiple meanings with the attached video, and the satire is clever.
    Also their harmonies sound perfect.

  7. The reason I ignore this type of criticism. 1. We aren’t like this anymore
    2. Every other country was just as bad or worse. No one is innocent. Its okay to constructively criticize, but don’t be ridiculous about it. Having said that I enjoyed the video lol

  8. Yes we all know Americans have done bad thing,but those things give you the right to wake up in the morning safe and soundly so,if you want to complain about this country and how “horrible” it is then I do t know why you still live here

    Edit:don’t get butt hurt 😉

  9. this is not your best work everything just seems off and i dont like the music style. also title= clickbait much

  10. Was this controversial?.. Like did people get mad?. It seems touchy, but I'm not one to judge.

  11. Yeah, take 3 seconds to scroll down,.. It's all good , we don't have to hide Rhett and Link.

  12. Wow, after all these years, finally seen something from Rhett and Link I wish I hadn't.
    And yes, I get the subtext, but my God man, you also know what you were doing, so don't act all "what ?"

  13. So many people are angry and they are entitled to their opinions, in my opinion this song shouldn't offend anyone. Sure this is about American and expanding no matter the cost but that happened hundreds of years ago, so it's not even our generation being poked at. Also whether anyone wants to admit it or not back a few hundred years ago this stuff really did happen and it was a lot worse than what was depicted in this video. Also people getting upset at the eagle getting shot wouldn't think twice about any other bird getting shot, just because this eagle is for patriotism, this was all just a joke, people shouldn't take too seriously, they teach the past in school all the time and no one gets upset but when someone makes a fiction add to that time period it's suddenly the worse thing in the world.

  14. Sometimes I would sing this at my school! And when I was in 4th Grade I sang the Belly Button song on the swings! 😂

  15. Wow I never expected this amount of social commentary from them Haha. This song isn't really about digging down the ground more so an underhanded criticism of America's destructive past. It takes a lot of love for the country and maturity for someone to criticize their country. Salute to the pair of you and those who took part producing it. It's a great message you guys have. Thank you guys for doing so much for us audience, I loved you guys since I went into high school.
    Edit: grind to ground

  16. I have a lifetime supply of nougat here. It's only for the people who realize that this song is not about the downfall of America. It's about digging a hole.

  17. I swear to god Rhett and link NEED to produce a legitimate serious song bc their voices are just so good if they actually went into the music industry I would definitely listen to it and I don't even really like country
