Ava and Alexis McClure, known as "the McClure Twins", (born July 12, 2013) are American twin sisters, models, YouTube personalities, and child influencers. The identical twin girls are best known for their viral video Twins Realize They Look the Same, which has amassed over 5 million views since publication in late 2016. In 2017, the McClure Twins were named “Top Kid Influencers” by Forbes Magazine.[1]

Early life and career[edit | edit source]

The McClure twins were born in Paterson, New Jersey, to parents Aminat “Ami” and Justin McClure. Ami, who was born in Nigeria[2], moved to New Jersey at four years old. She earned her B.A. in Accounting from William Paterson University of New Jersey while also pursuing a career as a model/actor. Justin, who was born in rural Georgia, was a stand-up comedian in the early 2000s and performed until 2013. He performed live shows nationwide and overseas for U.S. troops in Iraq, Kuwait, and Afghanistan. Justin also records and edits the McClure Twins' content.[3] The twins have one sibling, a younger brother named Jersey Tayo McClure.[4]

The first online video to feature the McClure Twins, “Dad Tells Twins They Need to Get a Job,” was posted January 2, 2015, and shows their father asking when the toddlers will start contributing to the household.

By fall of 2016, the McClure Twins has approximately 10,000 followers on Instagram.[5]

Their most popular video to date is “Twins Realize They Look the Same.” In the video, the McClure Twins discover they look alike and learn that one twin is one-minute younger, while the other is a half-inch taller.[6]

Other ventures[edit | edit source]

On December 1, 2016, the McClure twins, along with Ami and Justin, made their television debut with an interview segment led by Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.[7] The twins also walked the runways for Air Jordan as part of the Spring 2017 Rookie USA collection for New York Fashion Week. [8]. The McClure Twins' Facebook show, Discovery Twins, airs weekly.[9]. The McClure Twins family works closely with the special needs community.[10]

In March 2018, the McClure Twins’ family partnered with Walmart to promote its free online grocery pick-up program. The twins have also appeared in a LEGO Juniors digital campaign advertising the release of the Incredibles 2 playsets as well as S.C. Johnson’s ad campaign promoting its commitment to transparency.
