Everyone’s freaking out over the ‘Lizard Twins’, two brothers catfishing the entire planet
They are not actually lizards, btw
by Amanda Ross
Depending on how filled with tragedy your TL is, you may have seen posts about these guys called the Lizard Twins this weekend, otherwise known as the Catfish Twins.
They're two dudes who look like this – you'll notice why they have been dubbed the Lizard Twins because of their lizard-like colored contact lenses.

You get the idea. The Catfish Twins name originated, I think, because earlier in puberty they used to look like this:

But now they look like this, hence they are catfishing the planet.
For two very Instagram dudes who just want to make videos gazing deeply into each other's eyes, they're getting a lot of hate ("I swear if I see these greasy demons on my timeline one more time", "Bitch I'm scared", "My last 2 brain cells when it's time to down a shot of bleach").
if i see those lizard twins on my timeline one more time

But we looked into them, and pending any unreleased tweets where they say vaccines cause more disease than they prevent or something, The Lizard Twins – AKA Umar and Umair Khan – are actually good.
They love their mom and want you to do the same
The Khan Twinz made an emotional four-and-a-half minute skit about respecting your elders. It's incredibly sincere – their mom gets hospitalized, and one of the twins says he's too busy to help. He then forever regrets not helping her, and prays for forgiveness.
They end the clip with the emotional plea: "As soon as this video finishes, go find your closest loved ones and give them to biggest hug. Appreciate them." My heart is so full.
One of them even dressed up like he worked in an office, which shows his commitment to this bit:
They can grow beards at 17
I couldn't grow a beard until I was 20 – and I tried hard and often. I would have bitten your hands off to grow a sharp, defined beard at 17.
They love their haters
For everyone hating on us and calling us all sort of names. We're only 17 years old and all this is so new to us. If you don't like us and our content we have no problems in people unfollowing us. We love you all and are enjoying this journey. We have alot of projects coming up and just for the record: nothing will bring us down and nothing or NOBODY can stop our destiny 🙏
After this cringe interview from last year was unearthed, they addressed the Catfish haters:
"We love you all and are enjoying this journey. We have a lot of projects coming up and just for the record: nothing will bring us down and nothing or NOBODY can stop our destiny."

They wear colored contact lenses
Maybe this one is less good, actually.
They made a website to promote their brand, which is extremely intense
They're wearing matching clothes!
They're working with many agencies and businesses from around the world
I'm not even working with one agency or business from around the world.
In this house, we respect The Catfish (Khan) Twins.
Me: let's be productive today and get some work done
