PBS Pays Tribute To 'Joy Of Painting' Star Bob Ross With Video Remix
Late public television star Bob Ross has gotten a new tribute from PBS in the form of a remixed video featuring several clips from his hit show "Joy of Painting" set to music.
"Bob Ross Remixed | Happy Little Clouds" was remixed by John D. Boswell and released Thursday by PBS Digital Studios. The video is the second in a new series by the Public Broadcasting System that pays tribute to the channels icons; and features several of Ross's happy little catchphrases set to music. The clip follows last month's release, "Mister Rogers Remixed | Garden of Your Mind"; which features a similar styled beates and late children's entertainer Fred Rogers.
Boswell's project, Symphony of Science, was created in 2009 and released its first video, "A Glorious Dawn"; which featured Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking and centered around the creation of the universe. It quickly went viral and Boswell has since released several science-themed remix videos, all with hip-hop stylings and beats. The series mainly features famed scientists like Sagan and Hawking, along with others like Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye.
