Phil Collins classic song In The Air TonightI is generating renewed attention thanks to a pair of sibling YouTubers. On July 27, Tim and Fred Williams published a video of themselves reacting to the Grammy winner’s 1981 song as they listened to it for the first time. Their reaction video has since been viewed more than 4 million times on YouTube.
The 22-year-old twins documented their genuine first impressions of the song — including their infectious excitement at the song’s drum solo midway through. After listening to the song, the brothers agreed that Collins, now 69, “killed it,” calling the tune a “banger.”
The video has since been viewed 4.3 million times on YouTube and garnered reactions from entertainment figures as well as countless social media users. The video has also apparently prompted many others to revisit the rock classic on Apple Music, as it peaked at No. 2 on the iTunes chart on Tuesday afternoon.
