Microsoft goes all double rainbow with Windows Live Photo Gallery

Microsoft has gone all double rainbow today in Redmond.

The software giant has pumped out a promo video for its Windows Live Photo Gallery application. The twist you ask? It features Paul “Bear” Vasquez, famous for his excited reaction to a double rainbow. The Microsoft workers invited bear to Seattle in order to film the special video.

"When I first showed the Windows Live team the famous “Double Rainbow” video back in July they thought it was hilarious. But when I said I wanted him to come and do a video with us, they looked at me as if I had been seeing rainbows all day…they thought I was kidding. I e-mailed Bear that night and sure enough, he responded, and with great enthusiasm," wrote Microsoft worker Connor Lanman in a company blog posting today.

But what does it mean? Well Microsoft called on Bear to show him how to capture a full on double rainbow with Windows Live Photo Gallery using the panorama stitch feature. The video is light-hearted and comic and shows an un-usual side of Microsoft which is genuinely funny. Enjoy.
