PBS auto-tunes Julia Child for her 100th birthday
PBS is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Julia Child's birth in August with classic episodes of her cooking shows, recipes galore and perhaps the ultimate online tribute: an auto-tuned remix.
The public broadcaster has released a video giving the legendary TV chef the auto-tune treatment, with clips from her 50 years of cooking shows set to a slow-jam beat. We challenge you not to get "Bring on the roasted potatoes!" stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
PBS Digital has done similar videos for Bob Ross and Mister Rogers, both of which have received several million views on YouTube. If there's justice in the online world, Child's centennial remix (she was born Aug. 15, 1912) will do the same.
You can watch un-remixed episodes of Child's cooking shows and learn more about the 100th birthday celebration at PBS.org.
