Speaking about the video, the 22-year-old told Metro, "What the viewers can't see is that my brother was recording into one mirror, and that I was leaning on the opposite mirror behind him." He added saying, "The reflections make it appear that I am either in front of him, or next to him, which is why the last 'me' seems confusing."
