Clingy Duo is the friendship between Tubbo and TommyInnit from the YouTube fandom.

Canon

Their friendship started when Tommy raided Tubbo, who had 0 viewers at the time, on Twitch. From there, the two became friends and eventually started making videos together on YouTube. They both have some real-life vlogs with each other on their YouTube channels.

Around the middle of June 2021, Tubbo and Tommy were both in Brighton, England along with Wilbur Soot, Elodie (Wilbur and Tommy's editor), Jack Manifold and others. While in Brighton, Tubbo bought some pins and there happened to be a matching set, so he gave a pin to Tommy.[2] Tommy has said that he is moving to Brighton in 2022, along with Tubbo, Jack and Wilbur.[3]

YouTube

Previously on YouTube, Tommy often made videos with Tubbo about hacking in Minecraft with Tubbo teaching him things he didn't know about hacking. Tommy also mocked Tubbo for his interest and knowledge of hacked clients and Minecraft servers. Currently, Tommy often posts modded Minecraft videos with his friends, occasionally including Tubbo.

On Tommy's alternate YouTube account, TommyOutit, he made a video with Tubbo reacting to videos from his old channel, Channelnutpig. Together, the two laughed, cringed, and did more things while reacting to Tommy's old videos.

In I Took Tommy Shopping..., Tubbo vlogged about taking Tommy and Jack Manifold shopping. Tommy and Tubbo told the viewers to subscribe to the channel. Right after that, Tommy claimed that there was a glitch going around where Tommy would hit Tubbo every time they got a new subscriber. Tommy recorded Tubbo going down an escalator and said "POV: you're thinking about bees." Tubbo looked at the camera and gave Tommy a thumbs-up before reaching the bottom of the escalator and coming back up. At the Apple store, Tommy looked up if Tubbo is dead on the Dream SMP, but the Google PAA box wouldn't open.

Tubbo then claimed that Tommy needed a new look after Tommy took off his jacket, revealing his iconic red and white shirt. Tubbo, Tommy, and Jack search for clothes at a clothing store afterwards. After buying a shirt, Tommy said that the three should go to their final destination, Currys PC Worlds, as they would fit in there. Tubbo asked what they would buy from there, to which Tommy replied that they didn't want to buy anything from there, but they wanted to click. At Currys PC World, Jack claimed to have found his home at the gaming bunker, and told Tubbo and Tommy to leave him. Tommy tried out keyboards and mouses with Tubbo before Jack joined them again. Tommy, Jack, and Tubbo told the viewers to subsribe one last time before the video ends.

In I Bought A Water Park, Tommy brought Tubbo and Jack to an empty water park. After Jack thanked the lifeguards for their service, Tommy told the lifeguards that he was going to drown Tubbo. Tommy struggled to climb onto something while Tubbo climbed onto the same thing with ease. Tommy's total climbing time was 9.46 seconds while Tubbo's total time was 1.27 seconds. Tommy pushes Tubbo off before the scene cuts off. Tommy and Tubbo ran in the wave pool after realizing it had turn on.

Jack pointed the camera at Tubbo and Tommy, who were looking at each other from a short distance. Music started to play, but it suddenly stopped when Tubbo and Tommy ran at each other and fell. As Tubbo was about to go down in the trapdoor water slide, Tommy called out at him, "Bye-bye, bee boy!" Tubbo then slid down the slide, screaming, before the screaming quickly faded away. Tommy laughed and told the viewers that Tubbo would be okay. After telling the viewers to subscribe, he acknowledged that Tubbo was just gone and laughed before his laughter was cut off by the video ending.

However for MCC10, they were both on the Aqua Axolotls team along with Wilbur Soot and Pokimane[4] and they won ninth place together.
