'RuPaul! RuPaul! Yay!'

WATCH: Elders enjoy RuPaul's Drag Race for the very first time
Elders love RuPaul's Drag Race

The FBE YouTube channel has given us a lot of joy. We’ve seen elders watch and love the animated short, In a Heartbeat. Then, the filmmakers watched them react.

We’ve also seen a little boy’s thoughts on marriage equality evolve over the years.

One of the channel’s latest videos is another hilarious and heartwarming reaction take.

This time, elders watch RuPaul’s Drag Race for the first time.

‘Ohhh, RuPaul! RuPaul! Yay!’ one of the viewers exclaims as they realize what they’re watching. It’s delightful to see.

The channel showed various segments of the show to the viewers, gauging their responses, which were definitely varied.

‘It’s a very changing world,’ one man said. ‘I’m a little old-fashioned about this stuff. We have a billion channels on TV and we gotta fill them with something. I get that, but, uh, just not my cup of tea.’

Most of them love the humor of the show, laughing out loud at the digs and shade thrown on the series. However, they were less interested in the reality show drama element.

When they’re shown a scene of the contestants opening up about eating disorders, they’re touched.

‘It’s very touching that they spoke of that,’ one of the elders said.

At the end of the video, they’re asked various questions about the program and gay and drag queen culture. It’s effective at showing though some of them may be ‘old-fashioned’, they can still be understanding and open-minded.
