Two things you must do before you watch this video: Make sure you are sitting down, and make sure that you are alone, lest you happy cry in front of other people the way that I just did. All clear? Good. Although full disclosure: no amount of preparation will fully ready you for this video of twins coming out to their dad, which has already beaten out all videos past and present for The One With the Most Feels of 2015.
The twins, Austin Rhodes and Aaron Rhodes, are both models in Los Angeles and run a popular YouTube account called the Rhodes Bros, where they share funny, behind-the-scenes videos of their lives in the city. In their most recent video, the brothers explained that they have come out to everyone in their family except for their dad. Since they were planning on being more open about their orientation on YouTube, they decided that they would tell him first, and tell him together over the phone — and it is one of the sweetest conversations you will ever hear in your human life. While it's clear that their father was surprised, he assured them quickly that he loved them both, and nothing they could tell him would change that.
"I just want everything to be normal," says Aaron at one point, to which their dad doesn't even hesitate for a moment before saying, "You are normal." He goes on to tell them, "You're living your lives, and that's all you can do in life, is live it."
In a joint statement, the brothers said about the video:
With 2015 now here, we think it is time to finally just be ourselves. We hope by our actions today you can finish watching this video feeling encouraged and inspired. Thank you for all the support. We love you.
