CroesBros Hitting the Dance Challenge!

Ablo Squad 5 min read

A group of Aruban dancers and the CroesBros take us on a tour around their white-sand palm tree-filled island, Aruba.

The Ablo Dance Challenge is a HIT! And let’s be honest; it’s pretty awesome to see people from all around the world taking on the challenge and killing it. 🔥 One of the most memorable participations must be these Aruban dancers showing us their beautiful island while doing our dance. If you haven’t seen the video, what are you waiting for? Check it out right here:

We launched our Ablo Dance Challenge… and then this happened 😲 | ABLO x CroesBros

And yes, your eyes weren’t deceiving you, Gilmher and Jayden Croes (aka the CroesBros) made a fun cameo in the video. We’ve all seen their hilarious videos on TikTok and YouTube, but the Ablo Crew still had a lot of questions for the boys! So, we invited them for a little talk.

This is how it went down.

Hey guys, thanks for taking the time to answer some of our burning questions. For the people who have been living under a rock and don’t know who you are, introduce yourself.

G: We are the CroesBros! We started social media around 5 years ago...
J: And we make videos to make other people happy.
G: Yeah, we make comedy videos. But lately we are also trying new things. For example, we've been loving to do more dances, because well… we just love to dance.
J: We always try to make our videos different. When we see a trend, we want to add our twist to it and not just do it like everyone else.
G: We will add something to it that makes it unique. Our wish for the future is to go into filmmaking and create movies or series.
J: Yeah, that’s the dream.

Well, you are off to a good start. What an amazing video you guys created for Ablo! How much fun was it to be part of this?

J: So much fun! We met a lot of new people. It was a totally new experience for us.
G: I loved it! It was nice to create something huge like this.
J: I found it amazing to connect with creators from the island and work together. It was such a pleasure and a humbling experience.

Also thanks for letting us have a little glimpse of what it’s like to live in Aruba. What’s the best thing about living there?

J: It’s very peaceful, such a paradise. And the beaches over here are like a dream.
G: We were born here, so at first it felt just... normal. We didn’t realize Aruba was special. But through connecting with other people around the world we noticed that it’s not that common to have sunshine and beautiful sunsets everyday. We are very grateful to call this our home.
J: Yeah, now I can see what the hype is about. 😂

We really want to visit once the world settles down again, but until then, we can always explore the world on Ablo, right? 😉 What initially made you love the app?

G: You really feel like you're traveling! You tap the take off button and off you go. Also scrolling through the around the world feature is so much fun! So much to see and learn.
J: My favorite thing about Ablo is to talk to people from different countries. The fact that it translates any language, for me that is everything.

Have you already had fun talks with people from other countries on Ablo?

G: We talked to Mando from Egypt, who was really interesting. We bonded over our love for chicken.
J: Yes, Mando! I remember that we didn’t understand what he was saying at first, because he was talking about a specific dish from his country. But when we asked and he explained we started laughing so hard. It’s fun to learn from other people.

On Ablo, we have an awesome feature called Super 6, which is a game of ‘this or that’ that you can play with whomever you connect with. So we thought it would be fun to play a quick round of Super 6 with you guys to see how much alike you are. Ready CroesBros? Let’s go!

Would you rather spend a week: Somewhere quiet, practicing yoga and meditation 🧘‍♂️ vs. Enjoying the nightlife in a trendy location

G: Definitely enjoying the nightlife in a trendy location.
J: Same!
G: I do a lot of meditation already. And I can meditate anywhere, anytime. So I want to go for something different.

If you could travel in time, would you want to go to… The past vs. The future

J: I want the future to be a surprise, so I would choose to time travel to the past. I would love to experience a night in the 80s. The music of that time really speaks to me.
G: I love the classics, so definitely ‘go to the past’ for me!

The CroesBros also played ‘this or that’ with your friend Kat on Ablo and made a vlog about it. For the readers who haven’t watched it yet, you can find it here:

Your videos are always so funny and clever, where do you get your inspiration?

G: A lot of people have compared me to Jim Carrey. It was never my intention to mimic him. It isn’t like I practice his facial expressions in front of the mirror. I think it just comes naturally to me. I just want to make people laugh.
J: But he is definitely an inspiration to us both. So is mister Bean. Our favorite thing about him is that he can make people laugh without even saying anything. I find that very inspiring. Charlie Chaplin is also a great example.
G: They are an inspiration for us to keep the face expressions a thing. We get a lot of hate on our style of comedy online, but there are also so many fans who love it. That’s what keeps us going!

With Ablo, you have an extra fan! Keep doing what you're doing CroesBros! Thank you so much for answering all our questions and for the awesome video! And see you soon… on Ablo! 😉
