"Double rainbow! Oh my God, it's a double rainbow all the way!"

Viral video fans can instantly trace these words to Paul "Yosemite Bear" Vasquez, who, while hiking in January, witnessed the unusual natural phenomenon known as a "double rainbow" and, wonderstruck by its beauty, broke out his camcorder and recorded his wide-eyed epiphany for posterity.

"Yosemite Mountain Giant Double Rainbow 1-8-10," better-known as the "Double Rainbow" video, can be viewed as poignantly innocent or ridiculously emotional-Vasquez sobs in between exclamations of joy-but either way the clip has struck a chord with YouTube users during the last month and earned 7.2 million views.
