The UpIsNotJump YouTube channel is back with another brilliant Fallout 4 video. We’ve seen them re-create some of the best scenes from the hit animated series Rick and Morty (watch here and here), and now they’re bringing none other than the legend of relaxing painting instruction himself, Bob Ross, and his show The Joy of Painting into the Fallout universe.
The video uses audio from Ross’s many wonderful episodes of the show, and uses Fallout 4 and mods to deliver Ross’s instruction in a much, much different way than fans of the late artist’s show are used to. It’s a fun combination of humor and nostalgia, especially for fans of both the show and the video game.
You can check out the video below.
Just in case you missed it, UpIsNotJump also recently did a video re-creating some great scenes from Futurama—you remember, that amazing animated series Netflix and others STILL haven’t revived yet—which you can watch right here. There’s sure to be some follow-ups to that one in our future.
Oh, and if you happen to see the Bob Ross video on Facebook from a page called “UNILAD,” try to avoid watching and sharing it at all costs. They’re the kind of folks who like to post people’s hard work without giving them any credit, or “freebooting,” as it’s called. Apparently the video they shared has 1.5 million views, while the original only has 86,000 or so. That’s a damn crime if you ask me.
Bob Ross finally has his own video game, it just happens to be within Fallout 4.
The Joy of Painting was a public television show hosted by Bob Ross, the focus was to get people to learn how to paint using short hand techniques. The Joy of Painting is naturally a perfect fit to be turned into a video game given how exciting some episodes could get. As a result I took it upon myself to remake Bob Ross and capture The Style of the Joy of Painting in the Fallout 4 video game.
The Bob Ross Video Game allows you to paint your very own masterpieces using various ‘Tools’ within the Fallout 4 universe. Here you see Bob replace many of his paintbrushes and knives with weapons, Bob Ross uses a very liberal painting technique but as you will see the paintings come out great.
The popularity of the joy of painting led me to remake it in the video game Fallout 4.
