On July 8th, Shira Lazar of CBS News[5] posted her interview with Paul Vasquez (Hungrybear9562).“That day I was finishing a note to a friend telling her I was like Noah because I’m building what seems to be like an arc here. I have greenhouses and gardens and fern trees and lots of animals here. Right after finishing that email, I look out there and the colors. I walked out with my camera. What you see in the video is what I experienced. That rainbow lasted over an hour. My camera only captured about 40 percent of the color. It was a lot brighter than you see”.

On July 22nd, Jimmy Kimmel’s official YouTube channel posted a video of Bear in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live. On July 6th, the user schmoyoho (popular for “Auto-Tune the News”) created an Auto-Tuned version of this video.

CNN: How Double Rainbow Blew Up

July 14

It is usually the simplest expressions that take off like wildfire. Everyone's been talking this week about "double rainbows," based on a goofy home video recorded more than six months ago.

In early January, Paul Vasquez, also known as "Hungry Bear," spent an hour videotaping, and marveling at, a beautiful double rainbow at Yosemite National Park.

About Bear

I was born in the Barrios of East Los Angeles and lived in LA until I was 22 years old when I moved to Yosemite National Park to work in the park.

I married into the Yosemite Indian tribe and had two Yosemite Indian children who I helped raise in that culture.

I bought raw land just outside Yosemite and developed it myself where I am setting it up to be self sustaining.
