PBS autotunes Mr. Rogers, the results are tender and trippy

You may be familiar with John D. Boswell's Symphony of Science music videos, which take the titans of academic inquiry and turn their words into song. For Boswell's latest video, PBS contacted him to euphonize the immortal lessons of the late, great Fred Rogers.

As PBS Digital Studios explains, "Turns out that [Boswell] is a huge Mister Rogers' Neighborhood fan, and was thrilled at the chance to pay tribute to one of our heroes [...] This is the first in a series of PBS icons remixed." That slide whistle solo is pure hot fire.

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, The City of Champions. Mario Lemiux, Jackie Robinson, Lynn Swan, Hines Ward, 6 Super Bowl victories... these are things we'll talk about every day on end ad nauseam. Go to Pittsburgh, where Mr. Rodgers was from, where he made that show, where we have a statue of him... go and mention Mr. Rodgers and all you'll get is a solemn nod and silence, because there's nothing left to be said... there just isn't the words...
