However, the twist came around the 4:56 mark of the video when Collin’s drum solo exploded.
The twins were so surprised that they had to pause the song to comment on it.
“That was cool, how you did that?” Fred Williams said in the video. “That was good,” he added.
Tim Williams on the other hand said, that, he’s never seen anyone drop the beat three minutes into the song.
“He killed that, bro,” Fred Williams said towards the end of the song.
