Best idea ever.
Meet Chris Nervegna. The 22-year-old from South River, New Jersey had a Bob Ross-themed birthday party recently, and it’s safe to say now we all want one!
Last Saturday, Nervegna and his friends decided to purchase a bunch of paint supplies at the local art store, just a few hours before the party. That evening, they gathered around the TV and painted along to Bob Ross’s soothing voice.
The graphic design student says: “I can’t explain to you how bad the paintings were coming out in the beginning. I mean, absolutely horrible. Towards the end, everyone’s started coming together and looking amazing. I was shook.” Nervegna shared photos of the epic birthday party on Twitter, and his post has been retweeted more than 32,000 times and garnered over 108,000 likes.

Nervegna says: “Your painting will most likely not look anything like Bob’s. It’s all about having fun with your friends who love you and are down to have a good time with each other. Just paint those happy trees!” He adds that the group will “absolutely” have more Bob Ross painting parties in the future.
