A boxing poster and a shot of iconic rapper Tupac decorate the wall behind them. They hit play on Phil Collins’ hit from 1981, “In the Air Tonight.”
“It sounds like a rain entrance or something,” Tim says. The two nod their heads to the beat.
Then, about halfway through the video, the legendary drum solo hits. Tim and Fred are visibly shocked, yet thrilled — they start dancing in their chairs, pausing the video to quickly discuss.
“I have never seen nobody drop a beat three minutes in the song!” Fred exclaims, talking to the camera.
Their joy is delightful. And in the last week, the video has seemingly exploded — with more than 1.7 million views.
Tim, pictured in most of the videos wearing a durag, didn’t even know the video had blown up. A friend told him later.
