Appears to be two German guys attempting to rap while wearing construction hats. German or not, how can this be for real?

One hundred years ago today
, 1,358 members of the Kleindeutschland
, the German neighborhood on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, boarded a chartered ferry named the General Slocum
for a picnic excursion to Long Island. A fire broke out in the ship's hold while it cruised up the East River, the captain ran the vessel aground on the rocky shores of North Brother Island amid the swift currents of Hell Gate
, and when it was all over 1,021 people (mainly women and children) had perished by drowning or from the fire, and it remained the worst single-day New York City disaster until 9/11.
