Video Review: blackbear & Gucci Mane “do re mi”

Driving a luxury SUV, blackbear pulls into the driveway of a mansion. He carries his suitcase and opens the door. In the foyer, he sees a family of seven children, from ages five to eighteen, standing in a row. Three of the little girls yawn. The blonde 9-year-old boy is excited. The twelve-year-old boy winks at him. The eighteen-year-old young woman holds back tears.

The Von Trapp family want to be famous on Youtube. Their stepmother, Maria heard the children singing and had to find a way to capitalize on it. She hired a music teacher to provide lessons and began work on a video channel.

The eighteen-year-old young woman balks at the lessons. She’d rather drink and text message guys all day long. She wasn’t expecting to see blackbear, though. They had slept together several times and he stopped calling her. She thought she had an actual boyfriend for once.

He entertains her siblings with cats. She refuses, telling him she doesn’t want fur all over her designer dress. He tells her he’s sorry and she decides to make out with him. But then he made a crass comment about her breasts. She had to get revenge. Her siblings, though, think she went too far.

However, her siblings are hypocrites. The younger ones put on an R-rated puppet show, giggling as their five-year-old sister watches. They ignore their little sister’s questions about positions of the puppets, telling her to ask Maria. The blonde 9-year-old purposely bumps into his siblings, knocking them down during lessons. He wants them to know he will do anything to be the star of the family. After practice, he works on his own private Youtube channel, perfecting it before the launch date. He has to get out in front of his siblings.

Maria and the Captain are absentee parents. They only care about the paycheck that will roll in from the videos. Going viral with cute kids will allow them to be featured with brands. Neither of them really want to work again.
