Twins, Danny and Michael Philippou, began making home videos that would make any parent’s hair go white from their suburban backyard in Adelaide, South Australia, when they were young kids.
Now 24-years-old, they produce and release their hilarious and crazy stunt and SFX based videos every 2-3 weeks, run South Australia’s most subscribed to YouTube channel “RackaRacka” and have over 1 million Facebook followers. Over the years, RackaRacka have gained 4 million subscribers and over 1 billion views, and their videos have been featured programs internationally by Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O’Brien and MTV.
They won “Best Overall” at the Online Video Awards for their viral video “Harry Potter VS Star Wars”. Danny and Michael also work in various roles on film and television productions, including the hit horror feature The Babadook, Russell Crowe’s The Water Diviner and the TV series My Kitchen Rules.
In addition, the Philippous write and direct drama, with their short film Deluge winning “Best Director” at the South Australian Screen Awards in 2014.
