A Central Florida band's original song that went viral is featured in trailer previews for the new animated film, "The Nut Job."

ORLANDO, Fla. -

The song behind the movie trailer for "The Nut Job" is the product of three Orlando brothers: Connor, Riley and Toby McDonough.

They started playing in the band together just two years ago, and already their original song, "I Like That," went viral. They've developed a huge fan base overseas, especially in the Philippines, and now their song is the track behind an animated comedy about a squirrel who plans to rob a nut store.

"I'm excited to see the movie," said Riley. "I think it's going to be pretty cool. It has a lot of big actors in it."

While the boys have been making music and getting ready for shows, they said they're not too busy to give back to the place where it all started -- Howard Middle School.

"Just yesterday we played at a middle school for a fifth-grade teacher of ours, who all three of us were in his class, and now we played for his students, so it's really cool to see how it all comes back around," said Connor.
