Kids React to 'All About That Bass' – And Their Responses Might Surprise You

It's hard to escape Meghan Trainor's hit song, "All About That Bass." It's currently in the top slot on the Billboard Top 40, after all.

But before you grown-ups write it off as just something that young people are listening to, watch the latest "Kids React" video. It's a handy reminder that kids don't uniformly go for the popular stuff.

In fact, a few of the youngsters watching the "All About That Bass" video are doing it for the first time – and they seem a little embarrassed by it all. (Key reaction: "What is this even about?")

What's more, some of the young minds listening to this song aren't just hearing a dance beat. Some are hearing a positive message about acceptance and the human body.



Others, however, just do not see the appeal. One kid, in his bafflement, lays out a fundamental truth about pop music. "It's one of those songs that talks about fat butts," he says. "For some reason, everyone likes to hear about butts."
