Chris Redd[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?
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.
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.
