The café on Brick Lane, which is owned by twins Alan and Gary Keery, was last month targeted by anti-gentrification protesters, Class War – which put it at the centre of national media focus and wider debate about affordability and changes in the capital.

The Keerys previously worked with Beaumont Communications. Alfred did not competitively pitch for the work.

The YouTube channel, called The Keery Twins, will show unseen footage of the attack as well as upcoming videos including a cereal eating challenge and a parody about hipsters.

The twins will also share cookery videos, inspired by recipes in their new book the Cereal Killer Café Cookbook.

Alan Keery said: "Alfred’s expertise in social media strategy as well as its black book of media contacts really stood out to us. We’re excited to work with the team and get cracking making lots of great content for The Keery Twins YouTube channel."

Dan Neale, co-founder of Alfred, added: "We’re thrilled to be working with Alan and Gary to help them build a thriving social community. Their desire to create some incredibly brave content is an exciting prospect and one the team cannot wait to get stuck into."
