Whoa... It's a Double Rainbow... for Windows Live

Remember this guy?

That was Paul “Hungry Bear” Vasquez, who we all know by now to be truly impressed by rainbows. But his 15 minutes of fame aren't up yet (the original video was only three and a half minutes long).

Now Double Rainbow Guy has made an advertisement for Windows Live Photo Gallery, and it might just be our favorite Microsoft ad in a long time.

There's another video, but it's more of a testimonial rather than an entertaining ad.

    The author of this article and other bloggers have got to be kidding. This is not a very entertaining ad. Try again, Micro$oft.

    Old technology. Linux and OSX have had photo stitching since the 1990's. Glad to see Windows has finally reached 1990's level of technology.

    This guy is A O K in my book. If only I was so impressed by a free display of refracted light, then I wouldn't have to spend 300 bucks a year to upgrade my PC to refract light for me.

    I never thought I'd actually say these words but: That was an excellent advert by Microsoft!

    I love this ad too but I think "Bear" was trying to hard to recreate what he did in the original video and it just feels forced somehow.
