A ten-year-old boy trying to ride his bike down a hill for the first time ended with him veering off an empty road in California and crashing into garbage bins.
Footage of the incident has gone viral after the child’s father synched the moment of the crash with the sound of Phil Collins’ drum break in his hit track In The Air Tonight.
The 1981 song is already back in the spotlight after twin brothers from Gary, Indiana, posted their hilarious reaction to hearing it for the first time last week.
In the bike footage, Kim Chvotkin, 44, filmed her son riding on Morgan Lane in Redondo Beach on July 25.
The short clip shows Cooper wearing a helmet as he heads straight down a steep hill which has no obstacles, apart from a few parked cars on the opposite side.
However, he ends up veering left and crashes into two bins in front of a row of houses, sending them flying and falling off his bike.
The moment is perfectly synched with In The Air Tonight’s drum break – thanks to the editing skills of Cooper’s father, Jamie, who wrote on his Facebook page that his son is ‘fine and back on his bike’.
The video has since gained over 6.5million views and 323,000 likes, leaving users in hysterics at the young boy’s attempt.
One said: ‘This happened to me once but I rode into a mailbox instead.’
Another added: ‘This kid may want to wear a helmet for the rest of his life. In the shower, to bed, everywhere.’
Meanwhile, one wrote: ‘I feel like he must’ve… fallen asleep??
However, some felt sorry for the young boy. One wrote: ‘Am I the only one who feels bad for the kid?’
Twin brothers have gone viral for their hilarious reaction to hearing Phil Collins’ 1981 track ‘In the Air Tonight’ for the first time.
Tim and Fred Williams, 21, from Gary Indiana, have been broadening their musical horizons as part of their popular YouTube series First Time Hearing: Twins the New Trend, which has more than 200,000 subscribers.
In their videos, the rap-loving siblings share their initial reactions to classic songs they’ve never heard before. They’ve taken on music from the likes of Dolly Parton, Freddy Mercury, and Luciano Pavarotti, but fans believe their Collins video is their best yet.
Tim and Fred had no idea what they were getting into when they started playing In The Air Tonight, with the former noting that the song’s intro ‘sounds like a rain entrance or something’.
‘Okay… hold up,’ Tim said as he and his brother started getting into the song.
‘This is like a WWE entrance,’ he added. ‘I can see somebody walking down to the ring with this.’
They seemed to be enjoying the song, but they were truly blown away when they heard its famous drumbeat. The twins both pushed their chairs back, and Tim’s jaw dropped as he turned to look at his brother.
Fred imagined that Collins was thinking listeners were ‘sleeping’ on him, and he was going to wake them up.
‘I gotta download this to my phone,’ he said.
‘That was cool how he did that,’ Tim agreed. ‘I ain’t gonna lie. You got me on that.’
Fred noted that he had ‘never seen somebody drop a beat three minutes into a song’ like Collins did.
They appeared to be Collins converts by the end of the video.
‘Okay, Phil. Man killed it, bro,’ Fred said once it was over. ‘That song was cool. I ain’t gonna lie.’
