Please enjoy this clip of, uh, Thomas Middleditch licking a trumpet

We at The A.V. Club strive to deliver only the best and most worthwhile content to our readers, using our prestigious position as a major entertainment publication to wrangle access and information that others may not be offered. And so when Good Mythical Morning, the wildly popular daily YouTube show, approached us with an offer for an exclusive clip with the very funny Silicon Valley star Thomas Middleditch, we said sure, let’s take a look. And when that clip ended up being several minutes of Middleditch blindfolded and licking a trumpet—“Anything to get those views!” he cries, eyes wide with terror—we of course accepted.


It’s part of a recurring segment on the show, in which the affable hosts and their celebrity guests attempt to determine what an object is using only their mouths. Middleditch, for his part, performs admirably, pretty much nailing the answer after only a little bit of delicate mouthing. He also correctly guesses that the object was brass, which, does brass have a taste? You can watch the full segment below, and, of course, try putting random objects in your mouth any time you like.
