Awesome or Creepy?

This video has been making the rounds on Facebook and Twitter since yesterday:

I think it’s super-clever that someone was able to make a cohesive-sounding song from clips from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, but there’s something about it that creeps me out a little. Maybe it’s the auto-tune? I definitely appear to be in the minority – most everyone seems to love it. (Sprite looked at me like I was slightly insane when I said I thought it was creepy.) So… what do you think?

    Awesome. Cohesive and true to message of the old (simple) show. My initial reaction from your description was the clips might have been strung together for humor or in a derogatory way, which was not the case.

    I like it, but then I like auto-tune when it’s done well. It’s just too seldomly done well. This is the same guy that put together the Symphony of Science series, which is fantastic.

    Awesome! I really like it. Haven’t seen the old Mr. Rogers in years and this is so him. He would have liked the digital age.
