BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield is home to two brand new Internet stars.
Siblings Kiley and Griffin Thompson are just like any other brother and sister, except they have a huge following on social media.
It all started when Kiley dressed Griffin up as her favorite pop star, Luke Hemmings from 5 Seconds of Summer, and then posted the picture on Twitter.
The response was overwhelming, and Kiley quickly gained thousands of followers.
Kiley set Griffin up with a Twitter account shortly after, and he has even surpassed her in followers because of the picture. Combined they have over 31,000 followers.
The duo decided to start a YouTube channel and have been uploading videos for about a month now.
"I think it's just an easier way to just express yourself," said Kiley.
Kiley and Griffin's mom, Stacy, says she supports them and also helps them with their videos and social media accounts.
"I enjoy helping them edit their videos, and it's a hobby for me now," said Stacy.
Their YouTube videos are only getting a couple hundred views right now, but this is only the beginning. Every major YouTube star has to start somewhere, and Kiley and Griffin seem to have a plan.
"They both plan to go to college, they're both talking about majoring in social media which we've talked about is going to be around forever now," said Stacy.
Most of their YouTube videos consist of challenges like this one:
