I believe I have a more active sense of humor than most Mormons. And I love to have good, clean fun as much as any Mormon. So I'm already "lightened up" and "chilaxed"! 8^)

But I HAVE TO GIVE THIS VIDEO A HUGE THUMBS-DOWN --as have the MAJORITY (+61%) of commenters on this board!

I wouldn't call this video "evil", but the whole thing is just "wrong on so many levels." The kids are cute, and the song itself is clean and upbeat. But I just sense that the PARENTS may be too caught-up in seeking worldly popularity: trying to create a YouTube sensation out of their children; posters; t-shirts; screaming 12-year old YW/fans; popularity contests, puffed-up egos, etc. etc.

The video, in and of itself, is not too bad. It's more the "interview" of the egotistical parent in this article that's scary.

I can't believe these pessimistic people. When I was 30 yrs. old my 5 year old son took a woman by the hand, pulled her down to his level & told her she was beautiful. Have you never taken a picture &/or taken a video of you children & grandchildren & shown it to others? They are hams (as most children are) that love the attention & are innocent to hate. They tell it as they see it. These are 9 children that have been taught to see beauty in all & parents (since all the parents had to give their permission for this to be done) that love their children enough to let them do something they love. & none of those children look like they have been forced to do this.
