The Tragic Death Of Adam Perkins

Musician and famous Vine personality Adam Perkins is dead at only 24 years of age. As reported by People, Adam's twin Patrick Perkins took to Instagram on April 13, 2021 to share the somber news.

"My brother, Adam Perkins, passed away this previous Sunday, 4-11-21" he started out. "I can't even really put into words what this loss means for me," the grieving brother continued. Patrick went on to explain that being a twin was "a very central part" of his identity and all he's "ever known." "I'm struggling to find the words to explain what it will be like for me to live in this world without him. my best friend," he continued. Patrick did not provide a cause of death in the candid post.

In the days following Adam's death, Patrick continued to post various photos and videos of his late brother on his Instagram account. In one particular post, Patrick shared a photo of Adam playing the guitar and a caption that read, "a genius. an absolute and undeniable genius. he would hate me calling him that, but he can't stop me now. adam, if you're pissed i'm calling you that, tough luck. try and stop me."

Adam Perkins was widely known for his Vine clips

As you may recall, Vine star Adam Perkins is perhaps most widely known for his viral "Welcome to Chili's," video in which an underwear-clad Adam saunters into a bathroom, gazes into the mirror, and says enthusiastically, "Welcome to Chili's." Per Variety, Adam's seven-second clip garnered more than 25 million loops and the young internet sensation racked up more than 300,000 followers on the popular social networking app before it was discontinued in 2016.

Adam was also a graduate of New York University, where he studied musical composition, and in 2018 the young musician released his very own album, Latch Relay. During the somber announcement in which he confirmed Adam's death, his twin brother Patrick also conveyed his plans to release Adam's album Latch Relay on a "limited edition vinyl" via Adam's label Plas Teg Records, "a label that will seek to fulfill his musical destiny that was so tragically cut short."

Our heartfelt condolences go out to Patrick and the rest of the family.
