Bob Ross just got a happy little remix.
After striking viral video gold with an
autotuned video featuring the one and only Fred Rogers in early June, PBS Digital has released the second in its series of remixes of public-broadcasting icons.
This time, it's gentle-voiced painting teacher Bob Ross, whose catchphrases get the remix treatment.
Think "Happy little trees" and "happy little clouds," all set to music.
Once again, PBS turned to
Symphony of Science's John D. Boswell, also known as Musicsheep, to create the clip.
While the theme of the Mister Rogers remix was imagination, the Bob Ross remix is more about creativity and how making art can lift your spirits.
"I believe, I believe, that everyday is a good a day when you paint," he says/sings.
And later: "This is your world, you are the creator. Find freedom on this canvas."
Midway through the song, you may notice some unexpected sexual overtones. We did. But just when you think it's taking an interesting turn, it all sort of rights itself again.
