5 Best 'Double Rainbow' Musical Remixes

It doesn't take much to create an internet phenomenon these days.

Just ask Paul Vasquez, aka HungryBear9562, who uploaded a video of himself losing his shit at the sight of a double rainbow on YouTube back in January of this year. In the video, Vasquez is so taken back by the sight of a double rainbow that eventually he breaks down and cries. Yeah, it's pretty hilarious. The video went largely unnoticed until late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel linked to the video on his Twitter and an internet legend was born.

The video has well over 7 million views on YouTube alone and has already inspired a ton of parodies, mash-ups and musical remixes.

While there have been some really good takes on the double rainbow video so far it's the musical remixes that have really caught on, becoming a meme within a meme. While not all of the musical remixes so far are that great -- in fact some of them are pretty awful -- there are a handful of truly great ones. Here are some of the best so far.

But, first, in order to truly appreciate the remixes you need to be available with the original. So for those of you who have not had the extreme pleasure of seeing the original double rainbow freak out video yet, take a moment and soak it all in.

And now the remixes...
