At first sight, some might think Kyran and his brother-in-law Bill are an unlikely pair. But the dynamic duo from Australia is using humor to change minds and hearts, one TikTok at a time.
Kyran is an Aboriginal Australian and Bill has Down syndrome. For the past decade, Bill lives with Kyran three days out of the week, but during the lockdown, the in-laws quarantined together and their foray into social media stardom as “The Brother Boys” began.
Now they’ve got over 418,000 TikTok followers eager to see what they do next.
One of their most popular videos with over 18 million views highlights their chemistry.
“Picking brother boy up from work,” Kyran captioned the video showing him waiting in the car.
The clip shows Bill exiting the supermarket he works at looking like he just endured a very long day. But as soon as he spots Kyran, his face lights up. The two met up in the car and started dancing to a remix of Natasha Bedingfield’s “Unwritten.”
In another clip, Kyran shared how he and Bill bonded over being misfits.
“When you meet your girlfriend’s weird brother…” Kyran said while winking at the camera. “And now he’s your best mate of 10 years. And you’re just as weird as him.”
Then the camera cuts to Bill dancing in the car, beating his chest and sticking out his tongue.
Kyran stated in the comment section that even if he and Bill’s sister ever broke up, he and Bill are “brothers for life” and that “he’s also the best uncle to my daughter.”
Then there was the time Bill pranked Kyran. He told Kyran to stand up and turn around. Then Bill wrapped his arms around him and told Kyran to wrestle his way out. When Bill asked him to switch roles, as Kyran put his arms around him he made a playful moaning noise.
“Brother boy thinks he is funny,” Kyran wrote in the caption.
The video racked up over 1 million views on TikTok.
“That was hilarious, mate,” a user commented.
“He fully got you!” another said.
“I’m going to get my brother with this, thanks for the idea,” someone added.
