[starts with Michael Che in his set]

Michael Che: It’s a new year and I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube and I saw these two young dudes react to Phil Collin’s “In The Air Tonight” for the first time. I was blown away by their positivity and the fact they’ve never heard “In The Air Tonight” by Phil Collin. So, here to bring good vibes are TwinsTheNewTrend.

[Kenan and Chris slide in]

So, you two have a popular YouTube channel where you react to song you hear for the very first time like, “Bohemian Rhapsody” or “Can’t Touch This” or “Jolene”.

Chris: Oh, Jolene! Dolly Parton. Off with that one, boy.

Kenan: Oh, man! It’s like a story. Jolene can take your man if she wants to.

Chris: Cut it out, Jolene. Stop.

Michael Che: And you two had never heard that song before that moment?

Chris: No. Was it popular?

Michael Che: Yes. Incredibly. Well, either way, I thought it would be fun to play some songs and hear your reaction for the first time.

Chris: No doubt.

Kenan: Let’s do this.

Michael Che: Alright. Here we go. Let’s play something.

[“I’ll be there for you” by The Rembrandts is playing. Kenan and Chris are shaking their heads and enjoying. They’ve never heard it before.]

Kenan: Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Okay.

Chris: Yo, yo, yo. Hold on. Stop. They say, “Your life is DOA.” Like, dead or alive? It’s good to have options.

Kenan: Nah! I think he talking about Dua Lipa, yo!

Chris: Oh, with that guitar hitting, that was crazy.

Michael Che: You never heard that song before? It was a theme to one of the biggest TV shows of all time on NBC.

Chris: NBC? What’s that? STD or something?

Michael Che: Okay, never mind. Let’s keep going.

[“Baby Shark” by Pinkfong is playing. Kenan and Chris are rocking their bodies. They’ve never heard it before.]

Kenan: Hold up. Hold up. Stop. Ay! Baby shark is wild!

Chris: Yo, baby like du-du-du-du?

Kenan: Why is that baby shark by himself?

Chris: Yeah. Tada baby shark. Go home, baby.

Michael Che: So, that song has almost 8 billion views on YouTube and that’s the first time you ever heard of it?

Chris: Sure, but honestly, it’s the first time I’m hearing about baby sharks. Like, that’s crazy. I thought they were born full grown sharks.

Michael Che: Alright. Let’s try this one.

[Meow Mix commercial is playing. Kenan and Chris are dancing around. They’ve never heard it before.]

Chris: OH, hold on. No, they didn’t. No, they didn’t. Yo, no they didn’t do it.

Kenan: Yo! I didn’t even know that cats can get happy like that.

Chris: No, bro.

Kenan: They all sound sarcastic to me.

Chris: I’m not even a cat dude, but that was hot.

Michael Che: It’s also one of the most popular jiggles ever. It was a huge commercial.

Kenan: What’s a commercial? Like, a UFO?

Chris: Man!

Michael Che: I don’t know. Look, where have you guys been? Okay, try this.

[The nursery song of English alphabets “A-B-C…Z” is playing.]

Chris: Oh! Oh no!

Kenan: Hold up! Damn!

Chris: That’s so hot.

Kenan: Yo! I have never heard letters lined up before. That is crazy.

Chris: Yo, I wanna see how it ends, dawg.

Michael Che: With Z. It ends with Z.

Kenan: Oh, that’s fresh.

Chris: Yo, all can actually hear that.

Kenan: Word.

Michael Che: Hold on. Try this.

[SNL intro music is playing. Kenan and Chris are shaking their heads.]

Chris: Hm. I like this.

Kenan: That’s hot.

Chris: Oh, there’s a whole lot of saxophone. Like, too much, but I like it though.

Kenan: Yeah. Whoever is playing that sax on that song, he is like, playing sax.

Michael Che: TwinsTheNewTrend, everybody.

Chris: We’re going to be around for a long time.
