It’s just — baby babble. So why have five MILLION people tuned it? The latest viral video to storm YouTube — seems to be more than that. Take a look.
So are twins Sam and Ren arguing? Some say — twins can communicate in ways other babies can’t. It’s called Twintuition. A writer for Michigan’s Monroe News says, after watching this video, she’s a believer.
“I showed the twin argument video to my husband, and we promptly got into an argument. I believe that babies DO have a special language and that this video clearly shows the heated thrust and parry of verbal fencing.”
On Fox News, Dr. Manny Alvarez says no way. He says, twins share the womb, so they’re more familiar with one another. They are mimicking and communicating — but they are NOT talking.
(Alvarez) “Well No. They are communicating in the sense that they are imitating each other. They are recognizing that they have been around for a long-long time, and they will be for a long-long time. So, it’s more natural for them to start mimicking each other, but insofar as they are communicating…

“Even before they have words, they know how conversation works. They’re producing syllables emphatically and using them for communication purposes. They’re having a ball.”
Some can’t resist having a bigger laugh — through translation. College Humor decided to make a parody on baby babble — as symptomatic of today’s political discourse.
“Here we go. Those people are much better off. I mean, Dad, you’re with me right? Yeah, go crying to dad… I’m not crying! I’m asking his opinion! You’re telling him his opinion!
