Kids React to Osama bin Laden’s death

Benny and Rafi Fine make videos.

One of their projects involves showing children (ages 6-13) Youtube viral videos and then interviewing them about them. This sounds like it could be a pretty awful idea, but the regular panel is made up of  intelligent, articulate, sharp and funny kids, and while some are certainly echoing back things their parents and friends have said there’s still a sense of authenticity.

For a good example, here is “Kids React to Rebecca Black”.

When Osama Bin Laden was killed, the Fine brothers decided to use their format and regular panel to discuss his death with the children. I think it makes surprisingly compelling watching.
