If you saw a double rainbow in the sky, you'd probably think it was pretty special.
But chances are, you wouldn't react like Paul Vasquez, aka YouTube user Hungrybear9562, did in the viral video he made on January 8 outside his home in Yosemite, California.
The Know Your Meme YouTube channel credits the video's popularity to late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who mentioned it on his Twitter page, saying that his friend Todd declared it the "funniest video in the world" -- and "he might very well be right."
In case you haven't seen it, here's the video:
A SFGate blogger said what many viewers may have thought after viewing the video -- that "the dude seems like he is high out of his mind," but Vasquez told Good Morning America that he was just on "pure rainbow power."
So, how likely are you to run across a double rainbow on your travels through the wilderness?
According to Katie Fehlinger from Accu-Weather.com, it's not that uncommon.
"Light can be reflected more than once inside a raindrop," she said. "A second reflection creates a double, or secondary rainbow. It's basically a mirror image. The colors are reversed, due to refraction and light deviation, and the second rainbow looks fainter."
Of course, it's Vasquez's ecstatic reaction to the double rainbow that gave the video its comedic value -- and spawned a growing number of parodies on YouTube, from the excited KFC "doublicious" video to an auto-tuned song remix.
So, next time you see an exciting natural phenomenon -- grab a camera. YouTube stardom could be just a few clicks away.
