Tim and Fred Williams take on the 1997 classic - fresh from the viral hit listening to Phil Collins' In The Air Tonight for the first time.

Twin brothers Tim and Fred Williams - who became a viral hit earlier this year when they shared a video of them listening to Phil Collins' In The Air Tonight for the first time - are back with a new clip.

The 22-year-old brothers from Gary, Indiana have added a new clip to their YouTube channel Twins Reacts, which sees the pair watch the video to The Verve's Bitter Sweet Symphony for the first time.

We won't share all their reactions with you - go watch the video - but the brothers were surprised that a clip had over half a billion views and yet they'd never heard of the Wigan band or their 1997 hit.

"He looks like he's ready to steal, kill and DESTROY," they say of Richard Ashcroft in the video. "He's like the Slender Man"

While the song is received favourably, the Williams brothers are a bit confused as to where The Verve hail from - going off the side of the road the cars are driving on, they ponder: "Where are they from, Britain? Or Turkey or something? I dunno. Russia? Somewhere, man."

Tim and Fred Williams hit the headlines in August 2020 for sharing their first time listening to Phil Collins' classic 1981 track In The Air Tonight. Their hilarious video which has since been viewed nearly 8 million times... and counting.

Phil Collins isn't the only classic artist who's had the reaction treatment from the Indiana twins.

They've also shared their first reactions to Dolly Parton's Jolene, Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit and Radiohead's Creep.
