Henry and Mike Budrewicz, better known at The Pointer Brothers, is the dynamic brother-duo taking social media by storm. They’re hilarious.

With more than half of a million followers on TikTok, the Boston bros make their fans laugh with well-timed awkward moments, hilarious handshakes and incredible dance moves. They love beanies, pointing, and one another.

It didn’t take long for the Pointer Brothers to find success on the app. They posted their first video on March 9, 2020 and went viral just over a month later with this heart-wrenching story of a basketball prodigy who’s career was cut short due to injury. It drew 268.2k views.

Over the next few weeks, the Henry and Mike posted videos to the tune of around 20k views per video. They dressed up like album covers, celebrated the 4th of July like Thomas Jefferson, chucked darts, and shared their brother-to-brother telepathy.

In August 2020, the brothers posted a video that changed everything and shared the ‘Top 5 handshakes to do w/ the homies.’ The pointing began.

The intentionally uncomfortable video gained about 250k views and sparked a series that took off.

The Handshake Series.

After posting their first handshake tutorial, it was Part 2 that went bananas and earned 7.8 million views. The creativity is unmatched and the rest of the series is just as funny as, if not funnier than, the one before.
