'Double Rainbow Guy' Paul Vasquez in Windows Ad
Paul 'Hungrybear9562' Vasquez in Windows Live Photo Gallery Ad
Paul Vasquez accidentally took the internet by storm with his Double Rainbow video ("What does it mean?!"). In the original video, Paul Vasquez waxes poetic as he records a double rainbow in Yosemite Valley. Hungry Bear swears he wasn't stoned while filming the double rainbow. You be the judge.
At any rate, Microsoft saw some potential in having such an instantly-likeable pitchman, and collaborated with Vasquez on an advertisement for Windows Live Photo Gallery. It makes sense- you can't ignore 13 million non-porn pageviews for a single video.
It's the rare video that doesn't trade in pure schadenfreude: we laugh at him, but we also cannot help but share his enthusiasm: you can't watch the double rainbow video without smiling.
We hooked up with Bear to learn more about him & show him how to capture a full on double rainbow with Windows Live Photo Gallery using our panorama stitch feature. It’s so intense!
