both sets of 2's are missing a 2.

the first series should have 7, not 6. the second should have 8.

I would also have put in an extra 2, so the answer would be:

Two to two to two two two (2 before 20 until 2:22)

I've never heard anyone call two minutes after two "two two." Usually they say "2 oh 2", which would be 2222202.

However, people might say "two-two-two" for 2:22.

Fun teaser!
