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."
