Bob Ross Really Enjoyed Beating The Devil Out Of His Brushes [Video]

bob ross the joy of washing the brush

You remember Bob Ross, the impossibly fro’d white guy from the PBS show The Joy of Painting, don’t you? While the late landscape painter and instructor is often lovingly parodied in popular culture for his calm tone and undeniable sweetness to this day, perhaps there was a dark side to him all along.

To wit, check out this supercut featuring Ross merely cleaning his brushes, and activity he really seemed to enjoy …

… maybe a little too much.

The video was uploaded to YouTube in 2010, but is going viral again today after being posted to r/videos. Check out “The Joy of Washing the Brush” with Bob Ross above.
