50,000 People Are Watching Bob Ross Paint On Twitch Right Now

There’s something really awesome about seeing people react in real time to brush strokes on canvas. It’s like every single thing Bob Ross does, no matter how gentle and delicate, is as big as a major play in the World Series.

Confused? Well, Twitch just launched a new initiative, which happens to be called ‘Twitch Creative.’ It’s where people can go to watch others do crafty stuff, like paint or cosplay prep. You can read more about that here. It’s livestreaming, but for art—and with an accompanying chat window.

To celebrate that launch, Twitch is holding an 8-day marathon of every single Bob Ross episode. You can watch that below, if you’d like:

If Bob Ross alone doesn’t convince you to tune in, just take a gander at what the chat looks like in this GIF. It’s bananas. I LOVE IT.

Happy Birthday, Bob Ross. You’re an e-sport, now.
