Sam and, Ren McEntee, are born in New York City.
Their parents find them deep in
conversation and record it on video.
Randy posts the video to youtube so that
the boy's grandparents can watch.
The video has it's first viewers.
"Honestly, I think it was my dad, his golf
buddies and the ladies at my mom's salon."
The video had around 1,000 views when,
one Sunday, Randy posts it to a new
York twin parents' forum.
They wake up on Monday morning to find that their
video has had 20,000 views overnight. "I don't know
who, but somebody posted it to reddit and I think
that's how it got so big so fast".
Diane Sawyer's show on ABC news runs
a short piece on the video - its first
mainstream media coverage.
On Tuesday morning the video is shown on good
morning America, The Today Show, CBS and Fox.
The family agree to appear on Good Morning America. "Our rule
was that we were never going to travel for any show, and we'd
only do one show. Good Morning America was just up the road and
it happened to be the first show that contacted us."
The Ellen DeGeneres show features the
video, and then shows it again a couple of
days later with subtitles for the babies.
The video takes on a life of its own. "I think the best one I saw was
by Brock's dub. At first I removed it because the title was 'Mafia
babies', but after watching it again I realized it was really well done
so I let it go back up a few days later. That, and I had like 1,000
people emailing me saying 'what did you do to brock's dub?'."
"We've shown the video to the boys and they get a kick
out of it. But they've really got no idea of all that's been
going on. That's the way we like it because they didn't ask
for this, so we're just trying to manage it responsibly and
when the time's right we'll tell them all about it."
