First, there was a little diddy that was floating around the internet featuring the late, great Mr. Rogers. It was called, “Garden of Your Mind.” I didn’t watch it for awhile, because I just assumed it was another random YouTube video I’d get to eventually if it was in fact quality.
Then a close friend posted it on my Facebook wall and I watched… and I loved it! Pure gold… Mr. Rogers meets the Auto-Tune, remix YouTube world… and the magic he brought to childhood and humanity had never been stronger. In case you’ve been living under a rock…
Well, for those of us thinking PBS Digital Studios (the most shocking part was that PBS themselves had put together “Garden of your Mind”) was a one-hit wonder, they’ve done it again. The internet is starting to catch on to their follow up. How we didn’t see a slow jam from Bob Ross painting coming up next… I’ll never know. So I present to you, Bob Ross and The Joy of Painting… REMIXED AND AUTO-TUNED!
Happy Little Clouds, indeed!
Who’s ready for a PBS Digital Studios DJ’d dance party? I am.
My only question is how will PBS follow these up? Big Bird? Lamb Chop? Antiques Roadshow? Barney the Dinosaur? Berenstain Bears? Ringo Starr vs. George Carlin Mr. Conductor Dance Off?
