Mr. Rogers gets autotuned in 'Garden of Your Mind' video

June 07, 2012|By Patrick Kevin Day

Mr. Rogers doesn't seem like a likely candidate to be the next viral video, but now he is and there's nothing else to do but watch it.

PBS Digital Studios, in an attempt to spruce up the images of its iconic personalities for a new generation, recruited artist John D. Boswell (a.k.a. melodysheep) to do to Fred Rogers what he's done to Carl Sagan, Neil DeGrasse Tyson and dozens of other scientists for his "Symphony of Science" autotuned YouTube videos.

"Garden of Your Mind" is a collection of clips from "Mr. Rogers Neighborhood" remixed into a haunting tune.

"Mr. Rogers Neighborhood" aired from 1968 to 2001. Rogers passed away in February 2003.

PBS Digital Studios promises this is just the first in a series of remixed interpretations of its famous faces. Will autotuned Big Bird be far behind?
