  • OH finally ...Thank you GMM .I'm honoured

    • Someone tell pewds to get his fox

    • Woah my profile says it all.

    • Good idea, beint! Now you can say that you were featured in a GMM episode! :D

    • Thank you for making this video reality 😍😍

    • Love this 🤣🤣

  • I will not hit chase with a dart.

  • International MRE taste test plzzz

  • Scotland not country

  • Beet

  • 2:23 BULLHONKY!

  • I can say with 100% certainty that i can beat both Rhett and Link in this game

  • i love how chase is wearing a hairnet.

  • Absolute cap on that Scottish school lunch, we would all just go to the chippy

  • “peas and corn!!”

  • Scotsman here and we never saw any berries in school you having a laugh have you seen us

  • It’s official from now on I’m gonna call yogurt fermented pudding✊

  • Ayy Scotland

  • I thought the chicke was a backed potato i cant unsee it

  • International Taste Test, but every item they try is from the same country.

  • Lol at Japan.. not even close. Konyaku without anything and that rice hehehe🙃

  • In the U.S. of A we have the crappiest lunches. It stuns me how good other kids are eating.

  • For japan, what is the purpose of feeding kids a nearly 0 calorie food? Just to keep them satiated? I would think its more important to have actual nutritional value, even if its "bad" food

  • As a French person, this is really inaccurate. The coleslaw is rarely served in the canteen. Also, we have a proper piece of bread and cheese. For the dessert, I have never seen any donuts for lunch but we can have a small piece of tart and fresh fruits.

  • Pudding or YoGuRt

  • what kind of Japanese school lunch was that 😩 they never served it like that

  • Link: how does it make you feel that people from all over the world watch us Rhett: makes me feel like a million bucks Me searching up there net worth and it saying 30 million

  • Rhett's reaction is so genuine. where as link tries to be that funny guy but fails horribly with his over at top reaction kinda overacting.

  • Link hit where i live in the France one

  • i thought that the chicken from japan was a potato

  • Oh goodness**

  • I thought that chicken was an old potato

  • Wait how did she pronounce pankakor?

  • In Finland, i have never seen a school meal like that.

  • .

  • i live in the highlands of scotland and i aint never seen that school lunch ever in my entire life. usually a food that was invented or was made in a country, isnt commonly found in that country. people try to cater for travlers and tourests

  • Yes, 1D Schrodinger Equation and photon interaction!

  • Mmm fermented pudding

  • Kind of makes me happy Finland get just as bad looking, and probably tasting food as we do here in Sweden 😁 Makes us not alone in having bad school lunches 😅. But it’s a bit of a slap in the face seeing all other countries getting almost restaurant tier foods 😄

  • Link could definitely play a parody version of George bush

  • “The term Smorgasbord is Icelandic” My profile picture says it all.

  • For the Japanese School Meal, they should have given them Nattō (なっとう). Fermented Soybeans. xD

    • Natto is a breakfast food though... and the sticky stuff would get everywhere if kids had to eat it. It's guaranteed that schoolboys would be using them as a spitball substitute as they'd be smellier and stickier than real spitballs.

  • I love the excitement they feel" yeah I hit Canada!!!" The country is literally bigger than One of the continents

  • This was so interesting and fun to watch! As a German I’m ever so slightly surprised that Germany wasn’t included - that would’ve been Weißwurst, Beer and possibly a pretzel…


  • I'm from Scotland and there is nothing like this in any schools I've seen

    • must be from private schools cause i never seen anythin like that

  • Any Japanese people here who can confirm that y'all just straight up eat konnyaku in cold water?

  • The fermented pudding is one of my all time favorite GMM moments.

  • Crêpe? Thats a pancake my dudes.

  • These all look better than the ones in the USA

  • super fun video! Just one question, isn't smorgasbord Swedish? from our: Smörgåsbord

  • Beint you are a legend 🤣 love the fox photo too!

  • Smorgosbord is Swedish.

  • I'm so glad they got rid of the spoiler intro

  • smörgåsbord

  • Japan's school lunches are awesome and this one did not do it justice T____T. You should have tried the basic rice + grilled salted mackerel + pickled radish + miso soup combo. ... oh but then again miso soup would immediately give Japan away XD.

  • Im sure that the children who enjoy this enjoy it 😂😂😂 8:30 wtf 😂😂😅

  • Japanese school lunches are usually much better than that lol

  • The sudden kendo mainly like because recorder meteorologically realise anenst a wry circulation. stiff, adorable duck

  • Canada doesnt have school lunch most of the time

  • Please do international EAT POOP from around the world, if I keep saying that you’ll do it ? ...... DONE


  • French food looked amazing, i'd like to see what kind of abomimation american food these guys were served back in school lol

  • That devil's tongue looks like a bad looking stinky tofu and that "cucumber" is a daikon radish in the Japanese lunch (plus that lunch looks nothing like Japanese lunches.)

  • fermented pudding 💀

  • I live in Spain

  • Wait, in which episode was he magnetized, I have to watch it.

  • Thats a very US version of French. I feel like there would be a baguette , some kind of yoghurt and the cake would not be a doughnut. I don't think this resembles French.. French people am i right?

  • as a japanese school teacher...i'm confused about the japanese lunch. I have never been served just a bowl of konyaku like that....i don't think anyone eats just konyaku like that. I have been served many oden plates with konyaku mixed in but never just in a bowl of watery both alone.

  • Do Aussiee

  • Scottish lunch doesn’t look like that 😂😂

  • Scotlands lunch seems really expensive, what's the cost of adding fresh berries to every students plates?

  • What is an errrnge?

  • No one realized in the bottom left corner it says “I will not hit chase with a dart” 😂

  • I lived in Japan, and... that is not what they served, ever. It was more tereiaki chiken, rice, and Japanese Curry.

    • And milk

    • :P

    • Yeah… I think they must have been looking at private school menus. Sticky rice always gives it away lol.

  • Anyone else thought that the Japanese chicken was a potato?

  • 'man aze' instead of mayonnaise 🙄

  • We had the best school lunches in South Western Pennsylvania everyone loved the food, before crybabies worried about health haha

  • I'm french and I never heard or seen anything like the "french" dish in any school lunch... Pretty underwhelming episode.

  • Link is too indecisive and gets persuaded to easily that’s y he loses

  • I'm French and that school lunch was pretty spot on, except maybe for the doughnut. Never got a doughnut at school, we're more of a fromage frais people, maybe a madeleine if the administration is feeling generous

  • I just wanted link to hit that stickman head idw😂😂

  • Props for the nod to Carmen Sandiego (the OG one, not the new one)

  • Children in france eat better than that...

  • Where is the frog legs?

  • Hi I’m from Cambodia 🇰🇭 and thank you so much ☺️. Good mythical morning 👍🏻.

  • It’s not a finnish school lunch unless it comes with näkkäri on the side 😩

  • “Channel my inner lunch lady” Seems like Link’s new lucky phrase.

  • Lunch lady cartographer > Resident cartographer.

  • “Peas and corn” on Scotland 🌚🌚 luv, it’s peas and carrots 😭😭

  • why they get donuts and salmon in france? wtf

  • All link does is follow Rhett lead ,get an original thought link for once

  • 🧡🧡 🧡🧡 🧡🧡 🧡🧡 🧡🧡 🧡🧡 🧡🧡 🧡🧡💛 🧡🧡💛 🧡🧡💛 23🧡💛

  • That is not a typical Japanese lunch. Where is the omelet sausages etc.

  • International curry taste test please

  • I LOVE these International episodes! So interesting and eye-opening!

  • They did a really good job on capturing how BAD school lunches quality actually is. My mom always said I was dramatic but no

  • *The French are known for their ‘haute cuisine’ only because the Italians taught it to them by the DiMedici family. You’re welcome*

  • Just to be a little more accurate... There is few mistakes on the french tray: That kind of donut, round with an hole, that's American donut. We have baguette bread with lunch. We usually don't serve ratatouille with salmon, or any fish for that matter.

  • We dont eat that in spain, what a disgrace

  • They should have a version of this game where Josh makes a food that SEEMS like it could’ve come from somewhere on the map, and they have to guess if it’s an actual food, and if so where it’s from

  • I've never had eggs and sausages in my school in Spain ever lol

    • And last time i chequed nobody has EVER eaten chickpeas for breakfast here.

  • That japanese lunch foods is not the accurate representative of what it is in japan.

  • the whole world: Yogurt Americans: Fermented pudding

  • *we still got pizza and corn*
