Who are the twins? Their names are the Tim and Fred Williams, and they’re 22 years old.
The Twins Are From Gary, IndianaAccording to The New York Times, the twins hail from Gary, Indiana. The Chicago Tribune reported that they record their videos in a “makeshift studio” in their bedroom.
“I knew if I stayed committed, it would come. I just never figured it would come so fast,” Tim told The Tribune. “It’s amazing that this all blew up with so many people watching us now. I think it’s because how young we are and we love and appreciate the older music, giving it a chain reaction.”
It was Tim’s goal to become a YouTube star. “I always wanted to be a YouTuber, so I finally took it serious after I dropped out of college,” he said to the Trib.
