Congratulations are in order for Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun of Twenty One Pilots who just bagged their very first Grammy! Cool, right? Wait 'til you find out the message behind their Best Pop Duo/Group Performance win. When their song, "Stressed Out" (which bested Rihanna and Drake's, The Chainsmokers and Halsey's, Lukas Graham's, and Sia and Sean Paul's songs) was announced as the winner, the duo took their pants off before going up on stage to receive the award. It was then that Tyler explained why they were standing before everyone sans pants. 

"This story, it starts in Columbus Ohio and it was a few years ago and it was before Josh and I were able to make money playing music. And I called him up and I said, 'Hey Josh, do you wanna come over to my rental house and watch the Grammys?' He said, 'yeah, who's hanging there?' I said, 'a couple of my roommates. Just come and watch the Grammys with us.' As we were watching, we noticed that every single one of us was in our underwear. And seriously, Josh turned to me, and we were no one at that time...he turned to me and he said, 'You know if we ever go to the Grammys...if we ever win a Grammy, we should receive it just like this.'

So, not only is this amazing but I want everyone who's watching at home to know that you could be next, so watch out, okay? Coz anyone from anywhere can do anything. And this is that.

Watch everything unfold in the video below.

In case you haven't heard or seen it yet, this is the song that made all of this possible.

What do you think of their bold move, Candy Girls?
