Phil Collins’ 1981 banger ‘In the Air Tonight’ is a hit again after a reaction video went viral.
The ‘First Time Hearing’ clip is one of the latest in a series where 22-year-old twins Tim and Fred Williams, known by YouTube watchers as ‘TwinsthenewTend’, give their instant reactions to music they’ve never heard before.
They’ve previously listened to “Jolene” by Dolly Parton, “Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce Springsteen and Janis Joplin‘s “Piece of My Heart”, but it’s their reaction to Collins’ ‘In The Air Tonight’ is being hailed their best yet.
At the time of writing, the clip had almost 4.5 million views and has sent the song back up the iTunes chart and was the fourth-bestselling track on the platform for all of last week.
Check it out here, the drum solo reaction is EVERYTHING.
