My Favorite Pillow (music video called 2 Guys, 600 Pillows) is a song about pillows and was a collabaration with SleepBetter.org, who provided all of the pillows for the music video. SleepBetter.org also collabarated with Rhett and Link for their music video for their song, Sleep Tight, in which SleepBetter.org provided all of the pillows, mattress toppers, and matresses. The video was a suggestion by YouTube user, hotshot4525, as part of Rhett and Link's Submit a Song Idea Series. The video contains many pillows and is played backwards, with Rhett and Link singing backwards during shooting.

LyricsEdit

Do, do you remember back in middle school;

When my trunks fell down at the pool.

Everyone laughed, except for you;

You just let me hold you in my bedroom.


Our freshmen year, when Julie McKnight;

Dumped me because of my overbite.

I cried all night all over you;

You didn't seem to mind my tears or my drool.


I could always hold you tight.

(My favorite pillow)

So soft, so cool on your other side.

(My favorite pillow)


In my eyes, you've been nothing but classy;

But everybody's saying you're nasty.

Full of fungus, it can't be true;

Laden with bacteria. (No, not you)


But the thing that really did me in;

I learned your full of dust mite excrement.

And those dead skin cells may be mine;

But knowing what's in you, I can't sleep at night.


We've been through both thick and thin.

(Because you're a pillow)

It's hard to say this is the end.

(My favorite pillow)


It's not me, it's definitely you.

(I'll get a new pillow)

You're a body fluid sponge, and we're through.

(I'm getting a new you)

Awards/AchievementsEdit

The video has been recognized by TIME, with a spot in it's Top 10 Talented Web Videos of 2010. They said the following about the video:

TIME
The video for comedy duo Rhett and Link’s “My Favorite Pillow” would be fabulous enough forwards — who doesn’t love pillows? — but run it backwards and it’s even better. Suddenly, floating pillows perform on command, miraculously shaping themselves into forts, giant toilets, and the perfect trampoline companions. But perhaps the most impressive feat of the video is how Rhett and Link mouthed the words to their song in reverse.

TIME
