The Late Movies: Double Rainbow (So Intense)

Image credit: 

If you haven't seen the "double rainbow" video on YouTube, get ready for something, uh, intense. The video's YouTube description simply read, "It was rainbowing for at least an hour on January 8th 2010. It was incredible. The camera could not capture the vivid intensity and brightness." This dude was way excited about that double rainbow. The video has now racked up more than 6 million views, and I present, for your viewing pleasure, a series of expansions on the video that are a whole lot of fun. Warning: a few of these videos have some brief salty language.
