Kids react to Michael Jackson—and it’s actually pretty sweet


The Fine Bros.’s Kids React series often focuses on technology and pop-culture references that kids don’t understand, therefore making adults feel old. But the reactions to its latest subject, Michael Jackson, are refreshingly sweet. 

Even though one budding music critic, age 13, goes into the segment saying, “I don’t like pop because it’s not real music,” he changes his tune later. The general consensus is that Michael Jackson is missed and his music transcends generations. 

The Fine Bros. just debuted their new series, Celebs React, via Fullscreen.
