Mariposa's 'Double Rainbow' man stars in Microsoft commercial

Paul Vasquez's love of rainbows has been  well documented  over the last few months, but it's obvious he also loves the spotlight just as much. The Mariposa resident, who I first interviewed for a  July 8 blog post , is now starring in a 43-second commercial for Microsoft. Microsoft's Connor Lanman says in a blog post  that he first saw the " double rainbow" video 

Paul Vasquez's love of rainbows has been well documented over the last few months, but it's obvious he also loves the spotlight just as much. The Mariposa resident, who I first interviewed for a July 8 blog post, is now starring in a 43-second commercial for Microsoft.

Microsoft's Connor Lanman says in a blog post that he first saw the "double rainbow" video when it went viral in July, and suggested to his colleagues about using Vasquez in a promotional video for Windows Live Photo Gallery.

The company flew Vasquez, who uses the nickname "Bear," to its Redmond, Wash., headquarters for a 10-hour video shoot.





Vasquez is also the subject of a second video for Microsoft, called "Meet Bear." 








On his own blog, Vasquez says he enjoyed the experience.

"It's really cool and I had so much fun shooting it in Washington with all the Microsoft guys. They all treated me so nice. It was such a pleasure hanging out with them."
