PBS remixes artist Bob Ross' 'Joy of Painting'
Following the success of last month’s auto-tuned video of Mister Rogers, PBS has remixed artist Bob Ross’ The Joy of Painting.
Symphony of Science’s John D. Boswell strikes gold for the second time with “Happy Little Clouds.” In between inspirational mantras like ”You can do anything that you want to do — total power,” Ross’ advice loses its PG appeal with ”Give it a little touch, give it a little pull, make love to the canvass. … Caress it very gently.”
So ”bring a lot of good thoughts to your heart” and watch the video below. Ross’ beautiful landscape paintings and catchy tune will have you dreaming of ”happy little clouds” and ”happy little trees.”
Here’s the Mister Rogers clip, which has over 5.7 million hits on YouTube.
