I don’t remember watching Mister Rogers when I was a kid. I always thought he was kind of strange; his voice was too nice, the kind of voice that I didn’t trust. It turns out that he was just being himself, and since he was on TV for such a long time (1968-2001) influencing a lot of kids, there must have been some magic in him.
He is no longer with us, but lives on thanks to at PBS, who made this remix, and now, Mister Rogers has gone viral!
- The video has been viewed on YouTube more than 4 million times. Last weekend it was the #1
- On the PBS Facebook page, the video has been shared more than 3,400 times, has earned more than 2,000 likes and generated more than 160 comments.
- Celebrities including Neil Patrick Harris, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Alyssa Milano, Morgan Spurlock and Guy Kawasaki have shared the video with their many Twitter followers.
I really liked it. Enjoy.
