This video has already gone viral (almost 38,000 YouTube “likes” in two days!) so it probably doesn’t need a boost from me — and usually, autotuned vocals make me cringe.
Still, it put a smile on my face when my mother e-mailed me the link yesterday morning, thereby making history by telling me about a new web meme (instead of the other way around) for the first time. How cool is that? Way to go, mom — welcome to cyberspace!

Mister Rogers remixed by Symphony of Science’s John Boswell for PBS Digital Studios. **If you like this video, please support your local PBS station.** http://www.pbs.org/donate
(Headphones highly recommended!)
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 the first in a series of PBS icons remixed.
Many thanks to the folks at the Fred Rogers Company for their support.
