Joy of Painting – Bavaria Style

People back home just don’t have any idea about the Bob Ross phenomenon in Germany. Those who are my age and a bit older will remember coming across him on public television when they were probably trolling hopefully for Sesame Street. Like me they discovered the mesmerizing qualities of his voice and manner.  There was an attraction about him that’s hard to put a finger on, but he drew you in. He was catchy.

He’s not quite the equivalent of what Jerry Lewis is to the French, but Bob is a well-loved cultural icon over here. This is evidenced by this clip I stumbled across on youtube.

Without further ado, here is Bob Ross explaining the basics of Bavaria. Take it away Bob!
