21-Year-Old Twin Brothers Go Viral After Listening To Phil Collins For The First Time

I think we can all agree that the best viral videos are the POSITIVE ones that also have some rockin' music.

That's exactly the type of viral video we got when 21-year-old twins Tim and Fred Williams posted their reaction video to Phil Collins' "In The Air Tonight" and the internet is absolutely LOVING IT!

If you haven't seen the video yet, you must check it out down below!

Twin brothers Tim and Fred Williams have a YouTube channel that is funneling pure happiness into the world when we need it most!


Their latest video, a reaction to the iconic Phil Collins song "In The Air Tonight," has been shared across the internet and the people cannot get enough!

Fred and Tim started their YouTube channel by reviewing new rap albums, but have recently added a new type of content — reacting to "classic" music for the first time.

Since the switch to the oldies, the brothers have "discovered" iconic artists such as Janis Joplin, Queen, and Luther Vandross.

However, it wasn't until a month ago that the twins went viral for their reaction to the classic country song "Jolene" by QUEEN Dolly Parton.

Now, the brothers are trending again, this time because of their reaction to Phil Collins’ "In The Air Tonight."

Speaking with *People*, the twins revealed what gave them their inspiration for their channel.

"There’s more than just rap out there," Fred told the publication.

"There’s so much more than I ever thought."

Imagine being able to remember the time you listened to this iconic '80s song for the VERY FIRST time?!

Of course, the song is best known for being hella dramatic and, obviously, very influential.

Imagine their faces when Phil dropped that ICONIC beat three minutes in!

It was Fred's twin brother Tim who came up with the idea for their YouTube channel 10 months ago while Fred was away studying criminal justice at Indiana State University.

It was Tim's goal to broaden their music knowledge, which was largely based around the church music they had listened to growing up.

The boys went on to explain that music was an escape for them during some difficult years growing up, when family members battled with drug addiction and their mom served time in prison.


Today, Tim, and occasionally Fred, work with their mother, Tiffany King-Richardson, at Indiana’s Edgewater Health to help people dealing with substance abuse.

Tiffany told *People* she's "so proud" of her boys for channeling their energy into rewarding things.


"From my own experiences, I’ve taught Tim and Fred how important it is to have a voice," the 43-year-old added.

"I want them to do something in life that they love, and that’s music."

Now, Tim and Fred's reaction video to "In The Air Tonight" has nearly 4.5 million views!

This viral success has gained the brothers over 400,000 YouTube subscribers in the past few weeks!

You know what that means? MORE AMAZING CONTENT FOR THE PEOPLE!

Twitter has been filled with supportive comments for the brothers. THIS IS THE KIND OF WHOLESOME CONTENT WE NEED RIGHT NOW!

"Y’all sleeping on Phil Collins, look him up," they told their young followers.

The most iconic sentence of 2020, TBH.

They described the song as "unique" and a "banger" and seemed to truly enjoy it, which made my whole day.

And judging by the internet's reaction to the Williams twins, it seems everyone feels the same way I do.

Now, go watch their "Jolene" reaction video!
