I haven't seen it. We don't normally watch tv and when we do it is Netflix so there are no commercials.

I think they only play it at night. I have watched things I've recorded and had to fast forward through it. I don't want to have to explain it.

just say that a computer added the noises to play while they are dancing.

This. That's all it is. They really do not have bells in their pants.

I understand what the inference is. However it is one that most kids (at least younger ones) don't understand. My kids are 3,5&7 and would think nothing other than that they are shaking to the music.

Your question asks "how would you explain that" and I would tell my kids that the computer adds noise. I would not feel the need to elaborate any further. Do I feel that there should be a parental advisory? No. If this is the worst thing that's kids see I'm cool with that.

It's not for family oriented tv that's for sure.
