Is There Anything More Awkward Than Watching People React To Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda' Video?

Imagine seeing your parents or grandparents watch Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda."

Sounds a bit awkward, right?

Luckily you don't have to see your own family members watch the sexually explicit video, but you can instead enjoy the hilarious reactions of strangers in this episode of the "React" YouTube series by The Fine Brothers.

"I don't understand how people get derrières like this. I really don't," says one viewer. "I definitely would not be watching this if I weren't here," says another.

As funny as the reactions are, they lead into an important discussion about female portrayal in the media. And some viewers are quick to point that out.

"She has a lot of talent. I don't know why she has to sell it on sex. Why she can't trailblaze some kind of new path that doesn't involve sheer sexuality," one female viewer says. "There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking joy in your body and in sex. The problem is that this influences young girls."

Others think the video is entertaining and fun, and though it may be dripping with sexuality, it is just a sign of the times.

"There's always been sex around. I think that each generation accepts it on a different level," says one man.

Think a younger crowd would react differently? Turns out, not really.
