Kanye West, Rihanna and … Mr. Rogers?

The latest celebrity to get the Auto-Tune treatment – whereby singers use an electronic processor to alter the pitch of their voice, sometimes drastically – is none other than the late beloved children's TV host.

A new viral video called "Garden of Your Mind" features clips from Fred Rogers's PBS show, Mr. Rogers Neighborhood remixed into a slow-jam, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"You can grow ideas in the garden of your mind," Rogers' "sings" in the song's chorus.

The artist responsible for the altered version is John D. Boswell (a.k.a. "melodysheep"), who has done the same thing with scientists such as astronomer Carl Sagan, reports the Times.

Rogers died in 2003, two years after his show went off the air.

PBS spokespeople told the Times that Mr. Rogers is the first of several iconic personalities that will get the Auto-Tune treatment, in an effort to bring their children's programming to a new generation.
