Twins Go Viral for Hilarious 'First Time Hearing' Videos Showing Them Reacting to Classic Songs
Free music appreciation classes for all are being taught on YouTube by a set of 21-year-old twins in Gary, Indiana.
Titled "First Time Hearing: Twins the New Trend," the video series finds Tim and Fred Williams — who grew up listening to the likes of rapper Twista and Lil Wayne — giving their heartfelt thoughts about songs they admittedly might never have heard.
Among the artists they've been discovering are Freddie Mercury and Queen, Luther Vandross, Tom Jones, opera star Luciano Pavarotti and Aerosmith — but that's just the start.
“There’s more than just rap out there,” Fred tells PEOPLE. “There’s so much more than I ever thought.”
It was Tim who came up with the idea 10 months ago while Fred was away studying criminal justice at Indiana State University. His goal was to broaden the duo's music repertoire, which was largely focused on church music — songs that gave them "goosebumps" during their childhood.
"My grandfather always used to say to me, 'Listen to Frank Sinatra,'" says Tim. "You’ve got to listen to it before you judge."
When he plays "I’ve Got You Under My Skin," viewers can see Tim instantly falling in love with Sinatra’s beat.
“Okay! Come on now," he says. "Hey, this is something I can vibe to. I wasn’t expecting this!”
Then there's the celebration of the Carpenters, the brother-sister pop duo who dominated radio waves in the '70s.
As “Rainy Days and Mondays” plays, Fred says, “Nobody likes Mondays!”
Adds Tim, “This is the kind of music you listen to at a barbecue!”
No one's more amused by their love for the Carpenters than mom King-Richardson, who laughs as she tells PEOPLE, "Now that was surprising!"
