Two teenagers have brought generations together and gone viral on Twitter after they filmed themselves hearing “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins for the first time.

The two teens published a video to their YouTube channel Twinsthenewtrend where they sat down and listened to the popular song by the 80s musician and drummer Phil Collins.

Anyone who knows the song understands that the iconic drum fill is by far the best part, and these boys’ reactions are really satisfying to watch. As soon as the drumbeat starts their eyes widen and their mouths open, and said “I’ve never heard nobody drum a beat 3 minutes into a song.”

Long-time Phil Collins fans, including some famous faces, tweeted their support and enjoyment at the video.

Pam Keith, a Democrat runnign for congress, wrote: “This made me smile & laugh & just…feel wonderful.I have LOVED that Phil Collins song for decades. It BLEW ME AWAY too when I first heard it, just like these young men. I suppose, in these times of disconnection, seeing a true bond through a musical experience uplifted me”

FOX network tv personality Charles V Payne also retweeted the video and wrote “I felt like that the first time I heard the song, too.” Even Casey Neistat tweeted “watching this is a great way to start your day. I promise.”

The video’s popularity also spawned some other Phil Collins appreciation posts and made the musician’s name a trending topic on Twitter.

Fans of the clip will be pleased to know that the twins from Gary, Indiana have dedicated much of their YouTube channel to discovering older hits and filming their reactions upon first hearing them. The boys have also filmed themselves listening to Dolly Parton’s “Jolene”, Carpenters’ “We’ve Only Just Begun” and Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”

Music reactions have rapidly become a subculture on YouTube. Creators such as ZIAS and NoLifeShaq are among those making a living from these types of videos and have earned themselves millions of subscribers.

NoLifeShaq’s video of him hearing Godzilla by Eminem and Juice WRLD has over 3 million views, while ZIA’s most popular reaction videos have hit over 18 million views.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
