Subject: Teens React to 00s Music Videos

Written By: Zelek2 on 11/29/15 at 7:58 pm

How do you feel about this?

Yes, I know these videos are meant to get people mad and think '97 and '98 are somehow vastly different birth years (even though they're not).

Personally I'm getting sick of these, "kids react/teens react/elders react" videos. They're unfunny and uncreative.

When kids of today see Ben Affleck they think... Batman!? HAHAHA!

The kids in this video freak me out. I dunno why but there is something off about them as if they've never stepped outside their whole lives.

It was funny at first, especially with Kids React for starting in 2010 and Teen React in 2012, however most of the new episodes now are pretty boring though and the reactions don't seem as funny...

Now you have Buzzfeed trying to ride of the Finebros success with their incredibly lame react videos like this one  8-P

Something about this video seemed staged to me, like when one of those kids used the word, "turnt" to describe one of the videos. It's like the producers told them, "Don't forget to use contemporary slang in your commentaries!"  ::)

I wouldn't be surprised if they were staged. I saw the one where they reacted to flip phones and apparently these guys had never seen or used flip phones before (keep in mind that these guys were my age, so thats almost impossible)

You mean "turnt up"?

I hear a lot of teens and young adults use that slogan sometimes at least here in Atlanta. It depends on the type of culture you follow though.

Apparently that phrase is 10 years old according to Urban Dictonary: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Turnt&defid=1395334

Yeah, I've been aware of that phrase since the beginning of middle school for me. It seems like it started being used more often in songs as time went on, and of course it was used frequently by my friends and acquaintances as well. I've heard the word "turnt up" in a lot of hip-hop songs throughout the years. Especially "All The Way Turnt Up" by Roscoe Dash ft Soulja Boy (2010), the most common one I remember which got big around my 8th grade year.

This is news to me! I always thought it was something that originated in 2011!

I remember how that song suddenly got big by the start of 2010 when I was still in 8th grade, and since then words like "turnt up" and "swag" started being used more by people. I live in Georgia. Roscoe Dash is from my home state born in Atlanta, and he actually visited my high school back in Spring 2011 (2nd semester of my freshman year) and announced himself on the intercom, and everybody in the classrooms were screaming going nuts including everybody else in the hallways rushing to the front office. But the teachers were trying to get after everybody. It was hilarious!

Oh, so they were in their late teens, I thought they were the usual 14-17 age.

I think I would probably find this quite annoying. It is getting ridiculous with the recentness of so much of this stuff. I would understand if they were reacting to stuff from at least 20 years ago, but the 00s is only 10 years ago, so much of the 00s stuff is still around these days.

I love the react videos.
I'm not a fan of elders react tho because they are all stogey old farts who hate everything. 

However...the funniest thing I saw was the elders react to GTA (the promo for
It) followed about q year later with elders playing it. Watching the elders play it was highly amusing.

I saw the 90s react clips but I haven't seen the 00s one yet.

I never took the Teens React series seriously. I usually YouTube search Super Smash Bros. 64 and a Teens React is always there.

All the stupidness is staged, btw. Actually, I kind of liked the reactions to the 00s phones, they weren't as staged and dumb as I expected, the teens seemed quite familiar with them compared to the older phones. I also liked how one of them mentioned that the Razor started the selfie craze.

I always thought they appeared staged as well. Either that or these teens were the most sheltered kids ever. I mean, how is it possible that somebody born in 1997 could've never seen a flip-phone, or watched a J-Lo music video? Were they not allowed out the house until they were twelve?
