Profile Q&A: The Fine Brothers

Rafi(left) and Benni Fine, cofounders of TheFineBros YouTube channel.

If you haven’t heard of Rafi and Benni Fine, you haven’t surfed enough YouTube. Their comedy channel is the 30th most subscribed channel on the site. One of their most popular video series captures viewers reactions to a variety of viral videos and pressing topics, so we wanted to see how the Emmy Winners would react to the Profile Questionnaire. (And, as a web bonus, we highly recommend the video embedded below, in which they put the elderly through Gangam Style)
