Rewatching Phil Collins

This joyful video of two twin teen YouTuber brothers listening to Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight” has gone viral. Via Vulture:

You know those viral videos where a baby tries ice cream or bacon for the first time? You see their sweet baby faces cycle through curiosity, incredulity, discovery, and joy, all at something we don’t think twice about. Now imagine being a Gen-Z teen in 2020, basically still just a wee bébé, who has never heard Phil Collins’s “In the Air Tonight.” Not even the drum fill. It’s a real first-time-ice-cream-baby mood. Gary, Indiana–based teen twin YouTubers Tim and Fred Williams posted an eight-minute video on July 27 of the two of them, AirPods in, experiencing and reacting to Collins’s 1981 hit for the first time. Their reaction is priceless.
