If you’ve ever watched an awards show with your out-of-touch parents, you’ll appreciate this video.

Jimmy Fallon has filmed a Grammys edition of his Mom & Pop Quiz segment, asking middle-aged parents simple questions about stars like Taylor Swift and Beyoncé. And oh boy, are their answers embarrassing. 

Imagine someone asking your dad to recite the lyrics to “Anaconda,” and then imagine it taking place on camera, with you standing right beside him as he says, “Your anaconda don’t want none… unless it’s a rabbit.” 

One mom thinks Justin Bieber‘s fans are called “Bieber Boys.”

We’re also getting a dark, dark look at what dads think haters are gonna do. According to Taylor Swift, the answer is obviously “hate, hate, hate.” But if you ask a dad, the answer is apparently “beat you up” or “die.” 

Stay chill, dads.
