Elders React to Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ [VIDEO]

by | PopCrush

Have you ever wondered how your parents or grandparents might to react to Nicki Minaj‘s racy music video for ‘Anaconda?’ Well, now you don’t have to! OK, so the people in the above video may not be your parents, but we imagine their reactions are pretty typical of that age bracket. Besides, it beats having to ask your actual parents to sit down and watch the video with you. Talk about awkward.

In this installation of the YouTube series ‘Elders React,’ a group of older people is asked to watch the ‘Anaconda’ music video and comment on it as they see fit. Reactions vary slightly, but the majority of viewers seem to be slightly embarrassed, while most are disapproving. But not all the criticism is bad. One man refers to the song as “pleasant enough, it’s catchy” while another woman says: “I must say they know how to move it.”

The typical and expected reactions, however, include referring to the video as “soft pornography,” as well as saying: “Ten years ago they couldn’t show this on TV, you know. I don’t know how they get away with this stuff nowadays.”

How exactly would the others have changed the video to make it more appropriate for the heyday of their youth? “Give them a pair of trousers.” Yep, that’s exactly what our parents would say.
