Everyone’s talking about one specific video featuring the hit Phil Collins song “In the Air Tonight”.

It’s this one from the Williams Twins who have a viral reaction to hearing the song’s iconic drum break. Wait for about the 5-minute mark to see the reaction everyone’s going nuts about:

That video (as of writing this) has been seen more than 3.8 million times only since July 27 … more than 250,000 times a day.

The video is so popular it made the song perhaps as popular as it ever was or even more so. And consider that this debut solo song from Phil Collins is now nearly 40 years old, released way back in January 1981.

According to a report from New York Post, “In the Air Tonight” was recently #3 on the iTunes sales chart, behind only new songs from Cardi B and Darius Rucker. Pretty incredible for a song that’s just about over-the-hill.

And good for these guys for recognizing just how great that Phil Collins hit truly is. We’re not sure their reaction is as meme worthy as everyone seems to want it to be but hey, whatever.

But we feel the Williams twins’ video is about to get overshadowed by another “In the Air Tonight” video that almost no one is talking about right now, event though it’s been viewed 2 million times over on Twitter.

It’s this kid who appears out of control on his bicycle, speeding down a hill.

Check it out and … wait for it …

Admission of guilt: Of the 2 million views, we think this looped in our newsroom about 50,000 times before we could stop laughing.
