Easily the best rendition of FBE’s “React” videos is the series involving the younger kids, because the answers are just so unfiltered and honest, and they definitely didn’t hold back when it came to Mötley Crüe.

Reactions were priceless and ranged from not being sure if Vince Neil was a woman (insert “Dude Looks Like a Lady” joke here), one kid calling the band a “rip off KISS” and simply just loving Mick Mars’ guitar playing.

However, if one thing really got the kids’ attention, it was Tommy Lee’s spinning drum rig.  Considering how popular those damn fidget spinners are, it should come as no surprise that they loved Lee’s drum theatrics.

One thing they opted to do was play the Crüe’s music videos instead of just the tracks, but they didn’t show them the videos for “Dr. Feelgood” or “Girls Girls Girls,” because they weren’t appropriate.  Smart call there!
