'What does it mean?' A man's reaction to a double rainbow goes viral.

Posted on

I’m pretty easily amused by the simple things in life. You know, babies laughing, four-leaf clovers, someone (even me) tripping. The usual stuff. But a video going around the EW offices today just proved that maybe there’s a line of being too easily amused. And I think this guy just crossed it. See, in the video embedded below, what starts as a simple appreciation of a beautiful rainbow that turns into a complete freak-out over a — wait for it — double rainbow. Based on the camera man’s overreaction, you’d think he found the rainbow’s mystical pot of gold!

And thanks to YouTube, his three-minute ode to the double rainbow serves as my afternoon enjoyment, and hopefully yours. Posted earlier this year (how did I miss this?!), it already has more than 4.4 million views, and it’s even spawned a remix. Check out the weird, yet strangely catchy, auto-tune version. You can even download the song on iTunes, which I will won’t be purchasing when I get home.

What do you think PopWatchers? Is it an overreaction? Maybe there’s something to be learned from his zealous appreciation. Have you ever seen a double rainbow, and were you this excited about it? And someone please tell me I’m not the only one who really enjoys that auto-tune version. [Seattle pi]
