a bunch of vines by a family. – Vines of a very comedic-minded family. – I don’t know who they are,
but I’m sort of in love with them. And I wish they were my family. – The Eh Bee Family– I believe
that’s how you pronounce it. I always go back to this family, ’cause just the comedy of it plus the relatability of
the content is what I really like. – (Finebros) So these were
all put out by a Canadian family who call themselves the Eh Bee Family. – They seem Canadian.
Throwing that out there. Very just nice family. – (Finebros) They have a massive
following on social media, with over 15 million followers combined.
– Wow. – (incredulously) What? 15– my god. – (Finebros) …and over
a billion total views. – Holy Hannah. – (Finebros) What is it about them
that makes them so popular? – Well, you know, they’re so relatable. It’s like, who doesn’t feel that way? What kid doesn’t feel that way? What grownup doesn’t feel that way? – Everything that they showed is real. That’s a real thing
that families go through. And why not laugh about it? – They’re really good at packing
a lot of funny content into little chunks. And the dynamic. You can tell
they really do love each other. – They’re a living embodiment
of a stand-up comedian’s stand-up routine, right? They take the tropes
and the sterotypes of being kids and being parents, and
they put them into a medium, like little short skits. – (Finebros) Something that’s been
popular over the years online is families making content
for YouTube, Vine, and Facebook. Is that something
that you were familiar with? – Not really. – I haven’t seen these families before.
It’s good to see them. – I’ve seen a couple of things, but nothing where it’s been a channel or some sort of string of videos
that somebody’s released. – It’s great that they’re doing it. I like families that can
get out there and pave away, especially if there’s an opportunity. – We all remember the guy
who was the newscaster and his wife who was an actress. And they got together
and did the video card, “Christmas Jammies,”
and sent it to everybody. And it just kind of blew up. – The first family I saw were
the Staytards, Shay Carl, you know? And he was awesome. – The Shaytards, like, the people
that live their life on camera. A little mixed feeling about it. Like, I like the family that
plays together, the Eh Bee Family. That seems playful and fun. But if that’s like all day,
every day, and all they do, a little weird. – (Finebros) So this family
is not just on Vine. They’re on Instagram, Snapchat,
YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Periscope.
– Really? Wow. – Oh my god. Periscope? (laughs) Okay. – (Finebros) And they have
a sizable following on each of the platforms. Did you have any idea
how many different ways people are interacting with
celebrities and each other today? – No, I didn’t. It’s amazing. – I was aware. It does get on my nerves, because it’s always something
else that comes up. Sometimes it can be too much. – I’ve heard of all these things. The kids at school
are always kind of shocked that I know as much as I do. But it’s almost one of those
things where I have to, not only as a parent but as a teacher. – It’s just constant, and it never stops. And then you’re always on camera, and you’re sharing
every single detail of your life. And where did your privacy just go? – Fans are getting put at celebrities’
front doors essentially. That line blurs between fan and celebrity. I’m guilty of it too. I’m a Packer fan.
I look at Aaron Rodgers. I’m like, “Man, Aaron
Rodgers is my friend.” No, he’s not. He doesn’t
even know who I am. – (Finebros) What do
you think about a family making a business through social media?
– Um, well… Yeah, it seems fun. But then
you do sacrifice some privacy. – On the downside, of course,
then you have the troll aspect. – I wouldn’t want
to expose my kids to that, even on an ego basis, to where
my kid starts thinking, “Hey,” if he’s on the playground
at third grade and he’s like, “Yeah, but how many
YouTube followers do you have?” – It’s awesome. I mean, so many jobs can
take you away from family. And this is almost a way for them
to spend more time together. – It seems like the kids are enjoying it. And if few families can make
that work for them, you know, that’s an extra income,
and they should do it. – If you can make a business
out of entertaining yourselves, you’ve won the golden ticket.
I mean, come on. Who wouldn’t like to just
hang out with your family all day, having a great time, and get paid for it? – (Finebros) A lot of people
love the Eh Bee videos, because they love seeing how a family can have so much fun together. How important do you value
those times with your children? – It’s the most important thing. – We have game night. And I remember when
they were really little, if we didn’t have game night,
it was like the end of the world. – It’s hugely important, especially at the age
their kids seem to be currently, because once they get
into those teenage years, which I’m sort of experiencing
right now with my 16-year-old, they start to find their own
friends and their own life, and they pull away. – Most of the times,
we’re all stressed out. There’s only few hours
that we see our kids. The short time that we have,
we should try to make it fun. ♪ (guitar riff) ♪ – (Finebros) Finally,
after watching these videos, do you think you’re gonna go home
and try and get your family more involved in social media together?
– Absolutely not. – No. Because we have other things going on.
That’s just not our thing. – Yes, absolutely. Especially a short video like that
with a message. Why not? – I’m gonna try it, but I know for sure my kids don’t even let me
post a picture of us, you know, unless it’s a graduation
or something special. Funny you should ask. I have been trying to enlist
those guys a little bit, so I think yes, that would actually be a really fun thing to do together. – Thanks for watching
this episode of Parent Reacts. – Let us know in the comments which Vine star we should react to next. – Eh, thanks for watching. Bee, bye, guys. ♪ (industrial music) ♪
