KIDS REACT TO VIRAL CHALLENGES (Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover)

December 17, 2019


– What?! – (teen) Never
judge a book by its cover. You were right.
– That’s disgusting. That goes on people’s armpits. ♪ (playful theme music) ♪ – No, not these. Not these. – (girl) Wait. – Don’t judge a book by its cover! – (girl) Did you think I was
really gonna cut my eyebrows? Shave my eyebrows? – Why are you gonna
shave your eyebrows? – (girl) Well, you were wrong. Don’t ever judge
a book by its cover. – What is going on? (laughing) Is she trying to shave off
her eyebrows? – Wise lesson. Like she said, never judge
a book by its cover. – This trend is so dumb. – It’s funny because I was
binging on these episodes a couple days ago. – I see these all the time. On YouTube, on Musical.ly,
on Snapchat, on Instagram, everywhere. – (girl) Oh, did you think
I was gonna cut my hair? – I saw this one. – (girl) You’re wrong. Don’t ever judge a book by its cover. Or anyone. – These are the very same thing. – How is this teaching anyone
not to judge a book by its cover? – That’s a good rule to live by,
but when you’re holding scissors to your hair,
that’s just a different thing. – (snickering) – Okay, now that’s just stupid. – (girl) You really think I
was about to flat on my tongue? – No, I didn’t. – (Girl) Well, you are wrong.
– (groaning) – (girl) Never judge a book
by its cover. – That’s just hilarious. She’s like… – They’re pretty funny. – That would’ve hurt,
but I’m glad she did not do it. – That’s just scary because
what if you actually did that? – (teen) Wait, you
thought I was a girl. Never judge a book by its cover.
– (laughing) – (teen) Wait,
you thought I was a girl. Never judge a book by its cover. – (laughing) That one’s awesome. I actually like that one. – (teen) Wait,
you thought I was a girl. Never judge a book by its cover. – Okay, that one, I like. They’re not hurting
themselves, it’s funny. – He wasn’t doing anything–
like, he wasn’t cutting his hair or he wasn’t burning
his tongue or whatever. He was just like,
“You thought I was a girl.” That was funny. – This is a moral lesson. Just don’t judge a book by its cover. Never judge a book by its cover. Hello? – (boy) Oh, you
thought I was gonna kiss you? Never judge a book by its cover.
– No! You thought they were gonna kiss. – (boy) What, you
thought I was gonna kiss you? Never judge a book by its cover. – That one was sad. – (boy) What, you thought
I was gonna kiss you? Never judge a book by its cover. – That’s sad. That’s just sad and cruel. – That’s just kind of harsh. – Oh, that is just rude! Don’t do that to anybody. – Ew, what’s that?
Is that a stapler? – (man) What? Did you really think
I was gonna staple my hair? Wrong. Never judge a book by its cover. – (laughing) That one was funny
because it’s like he was making fun
of everybody who was doing it. – (man) Never
judge a book by its cover. – (giggling) He’s like yoink! I’m like… – (man) Never
judge a book by its cover. – (chuckling) It would’ve been fine
if he stapled that hair anyways. – (boy) Wait, did you really think
I was going to cut my hair? – No. – (boy) Never
judge a book by its cover. Just kidding.
(scissors snipping) – What?! – (boy) Just kidding.
– (gasping) Oh, he actually did it! – (boy) Just kidding.
(scissors snipping) – (laughing) They say,
“Don’t judge a book by its cover,” and then they didn’t do it,
but this one, snip. – Why would you do that? – Crazy kids. – (gasping)
– (girl) Wait. Did you really think
I was gonna flat iron my tongue? Don’t ever judge a–
I’m just kidding. I’m gonna actually do it.
– No, you’re not. She actually–?!
Oh my god! – (girl) I’m gonna actually do it.
(flat iron hissing) – (gasping) Okay, seriously,
where were her parents? – (girl) I’m actually gonna do it.
(flat iron hissing) – No! That’s terrible! – I heard the sizzle. (laughing) – They are hurting theirselves. Never hurt yourself. You’re just going
down the wrong path. Just try to go down the right path. – Ew! – (teen) Wait, did you think
I was gonna eat this deodorant? – He’s gonna eat it! – (teen) Never
judge a book by its cover. You were right.
– UGH! I can’t look at that.
Oh my god. – (teen) You were right. – That’s disgusting!
That goes on people’s armpits. – Don’t eat deodorant, kids. – Oh my god. He ate it! – He ate it and his face was like… (clicking tongue) …like normal. – (man) Oh, I bet you thought
I was gonna eat this whole pie all by myself.
– “You were right.” – (man) Don’t
judge a book by its cover. (fork clanking) – (cracking up)
– (older man groaning) – (cracking up and slapping knee) – (older man) Oh,
I was hoping for dessert. Thank you. Mmm, I bet you thought
I was gonna get mad. Don’t judge a book by its cover. – So it was two in one?
Oh my god! – What a nice guy. Honestly, I wouldn’t mind that. That’s just tasty. – Those were so funny. I want to do one. – (FBE) So these videos
are all from a recent challenge called “Don’t Judge
a Book By Its Cover.” – Yes, I’ve seen it a lot. Very trending. – It’s sort of like that ugly challenge
or something like that, whatever it was called,
where they would make themselves try to look ugly. That one also sort
of made fun of people, but it got the message
across out better than whatever this is. – (FBE) So as you saw,
the trend is essentially videos of people that look like
they’re about to do something crazy, but then they stop and say,
“Don’t judge a book by its cover,” and then they either do it
or they don’t. – Yeah, that’s funny. – (FBE) So the trend is being done
by people of all ages, but it seems like a lot of the people
who are doing it are kids. As a kid yourself, is this something
that you could see yourself doing? – No. – No way. Not in a long time. – No, not even close. I don’t get the point of this. – Not really. I don’t want to do any of this stuff. – I’m not gonna cut my hair,
but I would try to fool people and say, “Do not judge people
by this cover.” – Yes, I’d probably pretend
I was going to take a pencil and stab my iPad. – I’ve done it in person
with my friends and it was with shampoo. I just kind of jumped on
the bandwagon. – (FBE) Well, something
that seems to have been happening recently is that some of the videos
of kids doing this have been placed
into cringe compilations. – That will make sense. – (FBE) Sometimes it seems like
when kids start to do trends or challenges that might be geared
towards older teens or adults, people often make fun
of them for it and don’t think
they should be doing it. Do you understand
why people would feel this way? – Sorta. One, because us children
should be safe and sound in our adult’s arms–
but, no, we have 10 children at least who are being idiots! – I bet you they don’t
even get the challenge, but they just want to be famous. – It’s not filmed professionally. It’s just them
with their phone upways, which is the ultimate cringe. – Teens should do what teens do,
adults should do what adults do, and kids should do what kids do. I don’t think you should do it
if it’s not for, you know, for you. – I feel like older people
expect more into entertainment, so that could lead to just,
“Oh, this kid doesn’t have a great camera–
she doesn’t have a loud voice. I will dislike this.” – (FBE) So as you saw,
there’s a few of these that are kind of dangerous,
and some of the ones that we didn’t show you
are extremely dangerous. – Ooh, I can’t even imagine. – (FBE) So what do you
think your parents would say if they saw you participating
in this challenge, doing something dangerous like this?
– They would kill me. They would punish me
for my whole entire life until I’m 50 years old. – They’d probably just ask me
why I was doing it and if I told them why,
they’d be like, “Don’t follow that trend!” – Probably wouldn’t let me
because they want me to be safe and they want me
to go down the right path. – If I was a parent,
and I see my kid doing this, I’m like, “What are you doing
with your life, making videos that
doesn’t even make sense?” – (FBE) Finally, do you think
that this trend should continue or do you think
it should stop right now? – I think this trend
should stop right now. – I think it should
go die in a hole. There’s cringy kids–
no point in doing it. – It’s kind of funny
to watch them do it. – Continue so I can laugh. – I think it should kind of stop
with the dangerous things, but I’m okay with them pretending
and not actually doing it. – Oh, well, it should keep going
because keeping it going sounds like a great idea. Stop it. Please.
(buzzer) – If people aren’t
trying to hurt theirselves or do anything bad,
it should keep on going. – It should keep on going,
but just not as dangerous as eating deodorant. – It might need to stop. Feel free to do whatever you want,
but you’re gonna get a lot of hate and if you’re strong enough
to deal with that hate, and still produce
your content, props to you. – Thanks for watching Kids React. Shout-out to London Oana
