This is pretty cool, in a nerdy, nostalgic kind of way. Article says they are going to make more of these with other PBS icons.
The moving viral video, which reconnects viewers with the beloved TV iconic who taught kids how to tie their shoes and use their imagination for play, launched June 7 and already has 648,000 views. The description talks about the inspiration behind it: "When we discovered video mash-up artist John D. Boswell, aka melodysheep, on YouTube, we immediately wanted to work together. Turns out that he is a huge 'Mister Rogers' Neighborhood' fan, and was thrilled at the chance to pay tribute to one of our heroes. Both PBS and the Fred Rogers Company hope you like John’s celebration of Fred Rogers’ message."
This is only the first in a series of videos from the network. Other PBS icons will get the remix treatment as well in the future.
A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.
