Hippie freaks out over a Rainbow

Well theres lots of things in life that make us happy and/or fascinate us almost to the point of tears.
For some it could be the birth of a baby, winning the lottery, watching your kid graduate college...or....seeing a rainbow.
Yup...a rainbow. Weve all seen them. Some prettier and more define than others but still, theyre out there.
Last time i saw a prominent rainbow here in WNY was about maybe 3 weeks ago. It was pretty define and i remember alot of people posted pics of it on their facebooks but then that was it and the next day we all forgot about it and went on with our lives.
Well for Paul Vasquez of Yosemite, California...his reaction to seeing a 'Double-Rainbow' is curiously ecstatic and uncomfortably emotional.
I'll be honest, ive never even heard the term 'Double-Rainbow' until this video. I didnt really know it was that big of a deal (it really isnt).
If you wanna see what one looks like though, then continue on and watch this footage, i'll bet a hundred dollars your reaction will not top the reaction of Pauls' who filmed this video.
Things really start getting weird at the 1:45 mark when he starts sobbing uncontrollably...yes at the simple sight of a...rainbow.
HIPPIE FREAKS OUT OVER A RAINBOW
The video has been posted for at least 6 months now but for some reason got a slew of hits over the last couple days out of nowhere.
Since its sudden rise in popularity Paul has gone on to appear on Good Morning America, CBS news and more. The viral video has even already sparked a parody song (which alone has received 1.5 million hits in the past couple days) here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX0D4oZwCsA&feature=related
Believe it or not, Paul was NOT on drugs or alcohol or any mind-altering substance during the filming of this video...he claims he was just all gased up on 'Rainbow Power'.
I mean i can imagine that the sight in person is probably alot more marvelous than his camera was able to capture...but dude...its a friggin rainbow! or double-rainbow or whatever you wanna call it!!
Then again when i see a rainbow i just dont care as much and maybe thats why Paul is getting interviewed by all these major news outlets and not me. Time to up my Rainbow game i guess lol.
