A few weeks ago, I received a trio of lengthy and indignant texts from younger daughter.  We were at a local pub, and she was texting from the washroom, having stormed from the table when her cruel family exchanged less-than-complimentary remarks about our fellow-Canadian Justin Bieber.  She wasn't exactly a fan of his, she said, but she thought we were being unfair.

I was thinking about this when CBC music featured the following video.  It's one of the latest in a series called "Kids React to ...."

I'm not sure where they get the kids -- I suspect they're progeny of CBC Radio employees -- but the idea is to have them listen to a track and respond off the cuff.  The series started off with old Canadian classics such as "After the Gold Rush" by Neil Young, and "American Woman" by the Guess Who, but lately they been tackling recent tracks, mostly by Canadian artists, although they included Adele's "Hello".

Watch at about the 40 second mark for the moves displayed by "Charlie" who, I'm pretty sure, is a girl, and who is probably also a handful.
