Enjoy your imported Italian brick pot brownie oven, and your limited edition Crocs, SELL-OUT. (Via TheHighDefinite.)
You have no idea how disappointed I am that this is not a Skittles ad.
Beat me to it, baby.
Or that it isn’t directed by Tim and Eric.
Taste the double rainbow.
Seriously, someone at Skittles HQ missed a golden opportunity here. Especially with the insane direction that Skittles commercials have gone in the last few years (goat boys?), the commercial would make just as much sense to people who didn’t know who double rainbow guy was.
This breaks my heart.
YOU’RE RIGHT. DOUBLE RAINBOW GUY IS A HUGE LOSER NOW. IF I HAD GOTTEN FAMOUS FOR NO REASON LIKE HE DID I WOULD NEVER TRY AND MAKE SOME EXTRA CASH. IF ONLY HE HAD CONTINUED TO ENTERTAIN US FOR FREE. WHAT A SHAME, BECAUSE THIS JOKE WAS STILL FUNNY AND NOT OLD NOW. GOOD THING WE CARE.
go back to bed.
I’d rather fight chupacabras. With my bare hands.
He also does motivational speeches:
I wonder who his contract lawyer is? Sam the Eagle?
Needs more psilocybin.
This selling out makes me sick. To feel better, I’ll throw on an episode of “Pawn Stars”. Hey, Chumlee is hungry, and only has five bucks? I wonder where he can eat lunch? Oooh, Subway, of course, with their famous five dollar footlongs! What a great story line, and totally organic!
I have a friend who is a Subway sandwich expert. I’m going to have him look at this sandwich before I make Subway an offer.
“Once again the conservative sandwich-heavy portfolio pays of for the hungry investor!”
Shellbomber, that’s nothing, I have a friend who is a Subway sandwich ARTIST.
Could’ve used more wind chime.
This morning, instead of shouting “Wooooo!!!” with this guy, I’m shouting “Booooo!!!” at this guy.
What a sell out…I heard he wasn’t going to do it, but then they offered him a double paycheck all the way!
He’s really good at pretending to say all the things he said before. You say sell out, I say genius!

Seriously Videogum? Corporate Schill? You’re sooooo above it.
Enjoy your Mazda3′s everybody!
Thanks, I got into an accident with it earlier today, but don’t worry, it wasn’t anything a little tape couldn’t fix!
I bet Antoine Dodson is signing a deal will ADT as we speak.
You are so…. FUNNY!
It’s all good. There is plenty of Antoine Dodson to go around.
I like how you make us wait for the end of your sentence.
You are so dumb. Really.
No, not really. You are not so dumb. But it was a play on that famous phrase from A-Dod!
Haha, let the man have his limited edition crocs. He deserves it!
Anyways, this is much more natural than Antoine Dodson manning the Chelsea Apple store genius bar *
* – this did not happen
hey, Double Rainbow Guy is just trying to put food on his family…so that he can eat them.
I’m sorry — remind me how this guy is “selling out”? It’s not like he’s been pursuing a refined underground artform in support of some counter-culture movement and has traded up for paychecks based on the sale of his life’s work. Dude made a funny video and then someone offered him dollars to recreate the funny video. I would have said yes, too.
Yeah, his claim to fame wasn’t exactly laced with integrity and talent. I’m just glad the commercial was at least remotely relevant to his internet fame–the shilling actually sort of made sense. Other acceptable commercials for this guy: snuggies, maybe a Chili’s advertisement, anything related to beards or hygiene.
It’s like the Lionel Richie thing; he sold away the high point of his entire life.
I think my primary problem is that he seemed to have no problem capturing the double rainbow with whatever sort of camera/software he had before. Obviously it can be done.
Wait — advertisements lie to us in order to make us buy things we don’t need?
Bread makes you FAT?
wasn’t he using a video camera before?
that’s different right? you kids with your picture machines, I can’t tell what’s the boondoggle with rainbows anymore.
I think Gabe was being SARCASM.
This is like finding out that Santa Claus is a genial figure intended to engender good will while ultimately normalizing and encouraging consumerist impulses, but this one’s worse because it’s real!
He seems more out of it when he’s sober.
i would’ve sold out too but at least to something better than windows live.
He probably should have went with Apple.
corporation ruin EVERYTHING. No blood for oil!
All these ‘sell out’ whiners need to shut up. Jesus, let the guy make a buck off of a random viral meme he didn’t realize was going to happen.
Eh – If I found sudden internet fame, I can’t say I wouldn’t sell out. This guy gave so many people some laughs and smiles, but DAMN HIM if he gets to make some money off of it? No, only Youtube and blogs can make a coin off of him!! Whatever. I say “get some, Mr. Rainbow guy”.
Am I the only one that noticed how emotionless his face is? For a guy that sounds so expressive he sure moved like a robot.
What is he doing to that horse!?
*this took up way too much of my morning. i’m trying to work, dammit!
You would be sensitive to horse-rights.
make that money sonnnNNNnnnNN – This dude is BAWLIN yo.
I’m writing a thesis (IN KAWLEDGE) about the struggle of post-postmodern man to rise above the current class, intellectual, and gender stereotypes that still exist and are prevalent in our supposedly more tolerant world. Exploitation is one of the main topics. This is not that.
this makes me sad. Because one of the other topics is the loss of true inspiration in the common man. And this is that.
Sweet topic! Are you going to cite Hungrybear’s sell out in your thesis? Dooo it!
My biggest moments of satisfaction as I waste away in grad school is citing stuff I like in “real life.” So far I’ve managed to get away with making references to the Cure, the Clash, Soul Coughing, and soon will be making lots of references to viral videos in my dissertation. So, I’m gonna go ahead and count my time on videogum as “research.”
you know what? i just might.
also i LOLk’d so hard at your videogum as research line. It’s the damn truth.
I love how you spelled it KAWLEDGE. I enthusiastically approve of this spelling.
You guys, he sold out YEARS ago!
He’s going to buy the most righteous bong with that ad money.
Double Bubbler all the waaaaay!
