Music fans might have been alarmed when Phil Collins was trending on Twitter early this morning. Happily, there’s no need to worry about the singer/songwriter/drummer/producer. The trend was merely started by a YouTube video featuring two young kids listening to Phil’s solo classic “In The Air Tonight” for the first time.
They have a YouTube channel called TwinsTheNew Trend, and much of the channel features them reacting to music that they’ve never heard; some of the other videos feature Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition,” Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s “Happy Anywhere” and Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black.”
In the new reaction video, they seem really immersed in “In The Air Tonight.” But when the iconic drum fill comes in, they’re sold on the song. Watch the full reaction video here.
Watch the excerpt where they hear the drum fill in the tweets below (“I’ve never seen somebody drop a beat three minutes into a song!”), and check out the reactions to their reaction.
