I KNEW THEY WOULD TURN TO APPLEBEE'S.
I KNEW IT.
Also, -1 star for cameramen following them around just to post shit on youtube. But +1 star for turning toward applebee's.

"Schappell twins" take their name from country musician Dori and sister Lori Schappell, who are a famous set of craniopagus conjoined twins, a rare congenital disorder, where the siblings' skulls are fused together. The opposite of cranipagus twins is polycephaly.

Although the Schappells share 30% of their brain matter, they do not suffer from intellectual disability; however, Dori's body is crippled by spina bifida, leading to growth retardation of the lower body. Dori designed her own wheelchair based on a bar stool because no existing chair could accommodate her need to be at the same height of her sister (to avoid back, neck, and cranial strain).

The twinning-set in this video is unique in that it appears they are "more fused" than the Schappells. I am interested to know if and how this increase in shared brain matter has affected or impaired their intellect, and whether they "share" any brain functions, including impulses, emotions, nervous sensation, or even thoughts. Of further note is that the spina bifida twin in this set is physically reversed from its twin.

Unordinary footage, Herr Jung. In the last three seconds of footage a cameraman with professional camera gear is visible, suggesting that this is part of a documentary or news program. Is there more?

My word you're right. It didn't look like the old photos of them that I've seen. "On June 21, 2007, Lori and [Dori] Schappell, took part in grand opening of 'Ripley's Believe It Or Not ! Odditorium' in Times Square in New York" (Wiki). Another fun fact: In 2006, Dori was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in Reading, PA.

I was about to jokingly suggest that the person holding the camera was Maury Povich.

Not him personally, but in all likelihood one of his employees.

HOO HEY LET'S WATCH THE FREAKS GO TO APPLEBEE'S! THEN I'LL PAT THEIR HAND IN SOFT FOCUS AND WE CAN PRETEND WE AREN"T GAWKING AT THESE PEOPLE FOR OUR OWN AMUSEMENT!

On the other hand, it looked like the lion's share of pedestrians in the clip just sailed right past. That's NYC for you. I'm half surprised someone wasn't all HEY GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE WAY LADY!

gambol
minus 2 for those camera dicks stalking them.

plus 1 for nightmare noises.

Who the fuck would follow them around shoving a camera in their face like that? Have they no shame?
bac
None at all. Incidentally did you know your fun to laugh at?

I kinda agree with you some jackass getting all sweaty excited about being able to post his freak video on youtube is sick...thats part of the fun of it though...if you want to be somewhat happy you can be excited to learn something about this type of conjoined twinage (if you read merks post at least.)
