They received a voice recorders, cameras, Boom microphones, tripods, an Apple iMac computer and other tech accessories. “Guyssss!! @NetflixFilm sent us [these] presents omg! Thank you guys @NetflixFilm,” they tweeted.
Back in June, the group shared their remake of the Netflix film Extraction. They told their followers to share and tag Chris Hemsworth, the lead actor from the film. A few hours later, Netflix retweeted the film saying, “LOVE THIS.”
Hemsworth caught wind of the boys’ remake. He retweeted the video and wrote, “EPIC.” The Russo Brothers, who produced the film, invited the boys out to the premiere of Extraction 2. “This is awesome! We would love to have you guys at the ‘Extraction 2’ premiere…DM us and we’ll get you there!” they said in a tweet.
“This is the day we’ve been waiting for all our lives,” the group replied. Their 23-year-old brother, Babatunde Sanni, who manages and edits the videos, said the trailer took them a month to make. “Some days we shoot but end up re-shooting just because we wanted to do our best,” he told CNN.
The boys have also gained the attention of Will Smith after they recreated a trailer for one of his Bad Boys films. Actor and former wrestler Dwayne Johnson and Los Angeles Lakers basketball star LeBron James have also reached out the group recently.
They have also recreated Netflix’s hit show “Money Heist,” Michael Jackson’s “They Don’t Care About Us,” Burna Boy’s “Pull Up” and DaBaby and Roddy Ricch’s “Rockstar.”
