Some times, all of the stars align and something perfect emerges. That's how we felt Monday morning when we saw this video on social media. Rick Bayless, complete with wig, does an absolutely uncanny impersonation of the late, great painting personality Bob Ross.

Happy Little Cilantro Leaves

Someone on Twitter called me "the Bob Ross of Mexico." Wonder why ...

In the video, he paints "happy little cilantro leaves," shows "little tortilla chippies" some love, and promotes More Mexican Everyday, his new cookbook. We can die happy now.
