On July 27, brothers Tim and Fred Williams
took to their YouTube channel
TwinsthenewTrend to share their reactions
to Phil Collins’ 1981 hit “In the Air Tonight”.
In the nearly eight-minute video, the brothers
are seen calmly nodding their heads to the
track’s opening sequence, which consists
of a basic drum machine pattern.
As the chords enter, Tim gets excited, saying,
“Okay, hold up. Sound like they finna go cray”.
When Collins starts singing the first line of
the song, Tim pauses the track for a second.
“He said, ‘Hold on.’ Hold on, hold on, hold on,”
Tim hilariously says. “Phil Collins, man. Man, let
me put on a seatbelt real quick, man. Hold up”.
As the song continues, it becomes clear
that twins are clearly enjoying the vocals
and the ominous keyboard sounds.
But perhaps the best part of the video takes place
when the song’s legendary drum break occurs.
“I ain’t never seen nobody drop a beat
three minutes in a song,” Fred says.
By the end of the song, both Tim and Fred can
agree on one thing: Collins “killed” that song
