Oh, boy. - I see it; it's "Chocolate Rain." - ♪ Chocolate Rain ♪ You don't have to move away from the microphone to breathe in. ♪ ...again, Chocolate Rain ♪ (breathes) Sorry, I had away from the computer to breathe. I was just thinking, how awful would it have been if he breathed into that mic? - I'm glad he spared us. - (laughs) ♪ Chocolate Rain ♪ Man, this is an old video. This takes me back, man. This takes me back. I used to post this on people's MySpaces. This went huge. This went viral. There was all this media attention. It had not happened to anybody before, and in this time, no one really knew what to do. You know that weird place of YouTube? I feel like Tay Zonday is the gatekeeper to it. ♪ ...shake their heads in shame, Chocolate Rain ♪ What is Chocolate Rain? I've never looked up what the actual meaning of this song is. We've had years to decipher what this song is about. I have made no progress. ♪ Chocolate Rain ♪ When I watched this, I never thought, oh, my God, I would meet this guy. When I saw Tay Zonday, I was like, "Man, I thought you were seven feet tall." He's not. He's, like, the size of a Fine Brother. ♪ (instrumental) ♪ Oh. (chuckles) Oh, it's over. I've never actually made it to the end. (laughs) Okay. That's one of the best videos on YouTube. I feel like "Chocolate Rain" blew up in a moment of me not being self-aware of my not really knowing, "Is this what I want to do? Do I want to pursue music?" It was a happy accident. (FineBros) So, what was that video? "Chocolate Rain." Don't act like you don't know, bitch. "Chocolate Rain." "Chocolate Rain." Just YouTube gold. I have, of course, a love-hate relationship with "Chocolate Rain," as many people do who are disproportionately known for a particular thing. (FineBros) Why do you think this video went so viral? I mean, 4chan was a big help. Well, I know it got memed up. 'Cause it's amazing. The song is catchy as hell. You can't deny that. That voice is just unmatchable. We're there for the voice, and we stay because we're like, "What the (bleep) is the voice singing about?" Three strikes for virality, right? Step one: deep voice. That gets you right away. Step two is take yourself super seriously. Step three: takes the breath from the mic. The first one gets their hand on the mouse. The seconds one moves it over to the "share" button. - The third one fires the click. - (laughing) Probably 80% watched it because the found it funny. It was different because of the voice-body mismatch and my awkward mannerisms. But, there was also that part that actually said, "Hey, this means something and it touches me on that level." (FineBros) How would you describe his voice? (deep voice) His voice is just a perfect, slightly lower Barry White voice. Low. (low-pitched groan) The voice I want to hear, like, read me bedtime stories. The voice of God. Sexual. Can I say "sexual"? Surprisingly real. In person, he talks just like that. (FineBros) What does "Chocolate Rain" mean? I don't know. It's like... he's singing about Chocolate Rain, which could be, like, poo. It's like, is he talking about poo? I don't know. The most thought-provoking song of our generation? Could be explosive diarrhea. It's a serious song. I don't think anybody ever, like, realizes that. If they've taken the lyrics to heart or literally, it's like a-- isn't it kind of like a-- (laughing) I don't know, actually. I actually saw a comment and someone was like, "Maybe this is about racism," and then there were about 30 other comments mocking it for thinking that it was about racism. These lyrics don't even make any sense. Then you're like, "Wait a second. He has a whole bunch of other videos, and he always sings like this. Oh, my God, I'm clicking the link of him on Jimmy Kimmel now. He's talking like that! He speaks like this. He doesn't just sing like it." You're so balls-deep in Tay Zonday, and you realize it's 5 AM, and you spent the whole (bleep) night on the weird part of YouTube, and you did it with Tay Zonday. I always say the question is more important than the answer. The greatest success of a song like "Chocolate Rain" is to get people to ask questions. (FineBros) Do you know Tay Zonday personally? No. I'd love to meet the dude. That'd be awesome. We do. Not as well as we'd like. - Yeah, we've met Tay. - Yeah, we do. I was the dick that said, "Is this your real voice?" He's an amazing guy. Like one of the sweetest and nicest and just intellectual people that you'll ever meet. He's done so much other stuff, but he's just, you know-- it's almost like he's cast-typen as the Chocolate Rain guy. He felt proud to, like, call him a friend. (FineBros) So, Tay is actually going to be - in this episode of YouTubers React. - That's awesome. Oh, it's so funny. Sorry if we talk crap about you, Tay. (FineBros) How do you think he's going to react to himself? (imitating Tay) Oh, hey, that's me. (imitating Tay) Oh, come on, guys. (imitating Tay) What the hell is this? (imitating Tay) I've learned so much since when I did this video. I hope he doesn't, like, stab you guys. (laughs) (FineBros) What do you think the other YouTubers said about you and "Chocolate Rain" in this episode? That, "I became way, way bigger than he ever became"? No. Um... (chuckles) I don't know. I really have no clue. (FineBros) Well, what is something that you'd wish people would've taken notice of when it comes to how they perceived you in "Chocolate Rain"? Here's what I wish, all right? "Chocolate Rain" was not perceived as an intimate and real experience. It actually was me, I actually am like that, it actually is authentic, and that's who I am. I'm not bitter or anything. I mean, a lot of people who work their entire lives-- they don't get a calling card. I wish sometimes that more people would truly believe that that was me, because it is. (chuckles) ♪ (dramatic music) ♪ ♪ (Justin Timberlake, "Cry Me a River") ♪ For real? Who is this girl? No! Don't make me watch this! - Justin Bieber! - Aw! (girly voice) Oh, my God, I'm such a Belieber. ♪ You were my sun ♪ It's a little Bieb! I don't think you guys understand. I'm such a big Justin Bieber fan. I don't even have any jokes about Justin Bieber anymore. I've run that river (bleep) dry. Oh, it's good! It's great! Don't-- no. Don't turn it up-- you-- you dick! I was actually subscribed to Bieber when it was just this stuff. I remember when kidrauhl was just a peer. - ♪ (harmonizes) ♪ - It's like he's serenading me. That's really wrong to say. He's, like, 12 in this, isn't he? If I break this, can I pay for it and just buy you a new one? ♪ (Justin Bieber, "Baby") ♪ - ♪ Oh, whoa ♪ - (sings along) I don't know this song. I don't know what you're talking about. This is my jam. This is my song. I've never actually seen this video. I've only seen, like, the first 30 seconds. I always (bleep) before then. - (lip-syncing along) - ♪ You know you love me ♪ ♪ I know you care ♪ - (singing along) - ♪ Just shout whenever ♪ ♪ And I'll be there ♪ Hey, racially ambiguous girls. He's, like, the only white guy in this entire building. Huh.

Oh, my God! He's got the worst voice ever! His new music's not too bad, but this one-- this is terrible. ♪ (Justin Bieber, "Boyfriend") ♪ Yeah. This was a good song. I hate this video. Bring back the old Bieber! ♪ If I was your boyfriend, I'd never let you go ♪ And then he grew up to be a douchebag.

(laughs) That's all I got out of this song, is "swaggy." - ♪ Girl, let me talk to you ♪ - I like it. - (lip-syncing along) - ♪ If I was your boyfriend ♪ ♪ Never let you go ♪ He's really talented. He's completely different. Still got the racially ambiguous girls, though. Still got the racially ambiguous girls. I'd never thought I'd say this, but this makes me miss Justin Timberlake. Getting touchy. Gets a bit sexual here, doesn't it? - ♪ Na na na, na na na ♪ - Yeah. I love you, J-Biebs. Stay away from my daughters. (chuckles) (bleep) you. - (FineBros) So, who was that? - (bleep) you. ♪ (dramatic music) ♪ (FineBros) All right, so, who was that? - That was Justin Bieber. - That was Justin Bieber. Bieber. (cringes) The guy whose name has been in over 500 of my video titles and over 6,000 of my thumbnails. (FineBros) What are your thoughts on his music? - (bleep) - I like him. Love his music. He is an extremely talented musician. He's cute. When I was watching Bieber's old videos-- this was before he got signed or anything-- I was like, "This little white boy can friggin' sing." It's not the kind of music I listen to. Brandon, you're rockin' Beethoven all the time, so it's like you can't beat the original B. Justin Bieber is great at singing and dancing. All of the other things that he outsources to other people-- I think those people are talented at doing those things. (FineBros) How long have you loved Justin Bieber? For a very long time. - (FineBros) Is it appropriate for-- - Yes. - Adult women-- - Yes. (FineBros) Justin Bieber has a huge amount of haters. Why do you think that is? I think a lot of guys were jealous, probably. He gets the chicks, man. I think he has a lot of haters because he's popular. I mean, everybody who's popular has haters. When I was in junior high, I was like, "Ew! 'N Sync? Pssh!" But then it's like, I just downloaded the best of 'N Sync two weeks ago, and I bump that (bleep), you know what I'm saying? You got to be able to draw a distinction between your personal tastes and if it's actually good or not.
