UNDATED (CNN) -- Famed cook Julia Child has a new look in honor of what would be her 100th birthday. Her words have been put to music.
Eight years after her death, Julia Child is back and she sounds hungry. The woman whose New York Times obit called her the French chef for a Jello nation has been autotuned for a YouTube nation.
PBS commissioned producer John Boswell to autotune the icon to celebrate what would have been her 100th birthday. Sr. VP, PBS Interactive Jason Seiken says, "Actually have her sing, use the magic of autotune to bring her to life in song."
Julia Child didn't mince words, she minced ingredients. If you went searching on Google, maybe you stumbled on the Google doodle cooked up in her honor. These days everybody's a foodie but not everyone gets portrayed by Meryl Streep and Dan Akroyd on SNL.
The real Julia may have liked things rare but not that bloody. She used a blowtorch to melt cheese over a beef tartar burger for David Letterman. He said to her during her appearance, "Have you ever cooked something Julia that turned out awful?" Julia replies, "Yeah. Lots of times." David says, "What do you do then?" Julia says, "I give it to my husband."
No wonder he died first. Julia's autotuned resurrection is the latest installment of PBS icons remixed icons like mr. Rogers. Fond memories evoked by new technology. Certain lines are favorites.
The video even makes some people cry, and it's not because Julia's chopping onions. One commenter wrote "Every time she mentions the smell of something cooking reminding her of home, i tear up a little. Aww hell, I cried full out my first listen."
The woman who once said how can a nation be called great if its bread tastes like Kleenex has us reaching for our hankies.
