Roller skating videos uploaded by two brothers from Delaware are spreading happiness throughout the internet one clip at a time.
Marcus Griffin, 33, and Michael Griffin, 36, also known as “The Griffin Brothers,” are using social media to talk about their love of roller skating and music. They are known as “The Griffin Brothers.”
The majority of the siblings’ synchronized skating videos have been set to retro songs, such as Debbie Deb’s “Lookout Weekend” and Haddaway’s “What is Love.” As a result, their videos have taken over the internet and become very popular.
The two individuals have amassed millions of views across all of their social media platforms. Their TikTok has received 2.2 million likes, while their Instagram has 277 thousand followers.
But the brothers do not care about their level of notoriety. Skating is something that they do because they sincerely like it, and the knowledge that they provide pleasure to other people as a result of their skating motivates them to keep doing it.
Marcus, who is employed as a truck driver, said that “as soon as you walk on the floor, like, you climb into another plane,” and he believes that this is the source of the love that exists in the world today. “It doesn’t even pertain to the two of us anymore. It is about the remarks and words that people send to us, as well as the supports that we have.
You’ll notice that viewers have a consistent response whenever you watch one of their videos on Instagram or TikTok if you click on any of those videos. The following are some of the remarks they made:
“It’s impossible to get sick of viewing these videos! You guys are on spot!!!!”
“Need a video that’s longer! This is something I could watch for hours!
“Being in your presence brings me back to happier times.”
There is no denying the feeling of yesteryear that is evoked by these two brothers. Because of the viral nature of their films, a lot of people are thinking about picking up skating again. Some people have been motivated to take up skating as a hobby.
The Griffin siblings are doing a lot to reignite the public’s interest in the pastime of skating, despite the fact that the majority of skating rinks are shutting down.
Marcus said that “we’re bringing back those old sentiments that people had when they used to go skating, when they didn’t have to worry about the bills, the homes, or anything else.” “We’re bringing back those old feelings that people had when they used to go skating.” “When they see us, they feel a certain delight inside themselves, the kind of happiness they had when they were younger, back when circumstances were good and there were no pandemics, mass shootings, or anything else.” They don’t give it any consideration.
The duo began skating when they were small boys; it was a love that they had acquired from their mother, who was the first skater in the family.
When she was younger, she often went roller skating. Her mother would bring her to the skating rink, and she would spend the whole night there. Therefore, she continued the practice with her boys. On Fridays and Saturdays, Marcus and Michael would go skating, and throughout that time, their enthusiasm for the activity developed.
Marcus saw, while the epidemic was in progress, that an old video of him and his brother skateboarding was garnering a significant number of views on YouTube.
“He kept saying me grab my skates, get my skates, get my skates,” Michael recounted. My niece, who is also his daughter, was finally able to have her birthday celebration. And they had it at the skating rink, where I had already put rentals on, and I was like, “OK, let me just do this.”
“So I went back to skating again. And I had a great time doing it. I was like, Why did I quit skating? Why did I quit skating? And the love simply came back like nothing had happened, and then we eventually filmed a video of it last year,” Marcus said.
Skating at the Christiana Skating Center in Newark, Delaware, is one of the most common activities for the brothers. They decide in advance the songs they want to play, and then they wait until the end of the night, when the rink is empty, to begin playing them. The brothers then link their phones to the DJ booth and ask their buddy Damon Hudson to video them gliding and dancing to the music while their phones are connected to the booth.
Marcus expressed his desire to “offer pleasure and happiness to everyone who sets eyes on this” by saying that this was their goal.
