Daniel Tosh and the Double Rainbow Guy search for the meaning of nature's most beautiful miracle: the double rainbow. (7:33)

>> YOSEMITE BEAR.

>> WHOA, NICE TO MEET YOU,

DANIEL.

>> AH, I KNEW YOU COULDN'T

RESIST TASTING THE RAINBOW.

COME ON IN.

>> THANK YOU.

>> THANKS FOR COMING TO MY TENT.

I'M NOT A BIG FAN

OF THE OUTDOORS.

>> I SEE.

>> WHY DO THEY CALL YOU

"YOSEMITE BEAR"?

>> WELL, BECAUSE, UM, I'VE LIVED

IN YOSEMITE SO LONG.

I MOVED THERE IN 1985,

SO I'VE LIVED THERE PRETTY MUCH

MY WHOLE ADULT LIFE.

AND THE YOSEMITE INDIANS WHICH

I MARRIED INTO ARE THE BEAR

CLAN, AND BEARS COME TO VISIT ME

ON A REGULAR BASIS,

AND I EAT LIKE A BEAR.

I KIND OF LOOK LIKE A BEAR.

>> ARE YOU SCARED OF LIVING

OUT THERE IN THE WILD AT ALL?

>> UM, IT'S KIND OF A

SCARY PLACE, YEAH,

BUT I HAVE DOGS THAT PROTECT ME.

>> YOU EVER SEE A PANDA BEAR?

>> NO. [laughs]

I DON'T THINK A PANDA'S A BEAR.

>> YOU DON'T THINK

A PANDA'S A BEAR?

>> NO.

>> WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

>> I THINK A PANDA'S A RACCOON.

>> OH, ALL RIGHT.

TELL ME ABOUT THAT DAY

THAT YOU SAW THE DOUBLE RAINBOW.

>> I LOOKED OUTSIDE,

AND THERE WAS ALL THIS COLOR,

AND MY CAMERA'S

ON MY COFFEE TABLE,

SO I JUST GRABBED IT,

AND I WALKED OUTSIDE.

AND BASICALLY THAT'S

WHAT YOU SEE--

IS THE REACTION OF WALKING OUT

MY FRONT DOOR

WHEN THAT VIDEO STARTS.

>> WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

BECAUSE THE THEORY

IS THAT RAINBOWS

ARE JUST LIGHT REFLECTED

IN RAINDROPS.

>> YEAH, I THINK THAT'S

THE MECHANICS BEHIND IT,

BUT I THINK THERE'S

A DEEPER MEANING BEHIND IT.

I THINK THAT SPIRIT SENDS THOSE

TO CHANGE OUR HEART--

TO OPEN OUR HEART.

I MEAN, IT'S SO INCREDIBLY

BEAUTIFUL THAT I THINK

YOU CAN'T NOT SIT THERE IN AWE

AND WONDER AND APPRECIATION

AND BE MOVED BY IT.

>> I ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WAS,

LIKE, GOD FROWNING.

>> THE THING THAT CAME

TO ME WAS ACTUALLY--

IT STARTED AS A DOUBLE RAINBOW,

AND THEN IT WENT INTO

A TRIPLE RAINBOW,

AND THEN IT WAS

A COMPLETE CIRCLE OF COLOR.

AND, UM, IT ACTUALLY

ENDED UP LOOKING LIKE

AN EYEBALL LOOKING AT ME

THOUSANDS OF FEET HIGH.

TO ME, IT FELT LIKE GOD'S EYE

WAS LOOKING AT ME.

THAT'S WHY I GOT SO EMOTIONAL.

>> OKAY, AND THEN THE QUESTION

THAT EVERYONE WANTS TO KNOW IS,

WERE YOU HIGH?

>> FOR THAT VIDEO,

ABSOLUTELY NOT.

>> AN HOUR BEFORE THAT,

WERE YOU HIGH?

>> NO, I HADN'T BEEN HIGH

AT ALL THAT DAY.

>> I READ SOMEWHERE

THAT YOU LIVE OFF $5,000 A YEAR.

I DON'T KNOW HOW

THAT'S POSSIBLE.

I SPEND THAT MUCH

ON VITAMIN WATER.

>> YEAH, BECAUSE MY PROPERTY'S

ALL PAID FOR.

I DON'T HAVE ANY CAR PAYMENTS.

MY PROPERTY TAXES

ARE $20 A MONTH.

>> OH, THAT'S GOOD.

>> I GROW A LOT OF MY OWN FOOD.

I DON'T GO ANYWHERE.

AND WHEN YOU'RE FORCED

TO LIVE ON VERY LITTLE WATER

AND YOU DON'T HAVE RENT AND

YOU DON'T HAVE A CAR PAYMENT,

YOU START TO REALIZE

THAT THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS

THAT YOU DON'T NEED.

>> BUT WHAT ABOUT THE IPAD?

>> I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS.

>> [sighs]

THAT'S CRAZY.

BUT YOU KNOW HOW

TO UPLOAD VIDEOS

AND PUT THEM ON THE INTERNET

AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

>> YEAH, WHEN I STOPPED WORKING,

I BOUGHT A BUNCH OF EQUIPMENT

BECAUSE I WANTED TO DO

PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY,

AND SO I GOT THAT STUFF.

AND I HAVE, OBVIOUSLY,

AN INTERNET CONNECTION

AT MY PLACE.

>> WHAT OTHER CRAZY JOBS

HAVE YOU HAD IN YOUR LIFE?

>> UH, I WORKED FOR

L.A. COUNTY FIRE DEPARTMENT.

I FLEW IN HELICOPTERS

TO FIGHT FIRES.

I WORKED IN YOSEMITE.

I WORKED FOR

THE CONCESSION THERE.

UM, I WAS A SECURITY OFFICER,

A FIREFIGHTER, AN E.M.T.

I WORKED IN THE PARK SERVICE.

I WAS ALSO A CAGE FIGHTER.

>> YOU WERE A CAGE FIGHTER?

>> I FOUGHT PROFESSIONALLY

IN A CAGE.

YEAH, I FOUGHT IN A CASINO.

I FOUGHT A GUY

WHO WAS 6'8", 425 POUNDS.

BIG GIANT MONSTER.

>> DID IT HURT?

>> UH, NO, NOT AT ALL.

YEAH, IT WAS FUN.

I'VE BEEN OFFERED

TO FIGHT AGAIN,

AND PROBABLY WHEN I DO THAT,

I'LL HAVE TO CUT THESE OFF.

>> OH.

>> YEAH, 'CAUSE IT'S A HANDLE.

>> YOU SHOULDN'T FIGHT ANYMORE.

>> I WANT TO FIGHT.

I LOVE IT; IT'S MY PASSION.

>> OKAY.

>> YEAH.

>> WELL, THEN GO AHEAD.

>> [laughs]

>> THEN KEEP FIGHTING.

>> I LIKE IT.

IT TAKES YOU TO A PLACE

THAT MOST PEOPLE DON'T REALLY

GET TO EXPERIENCE.

>> YEAH.

BROKEN LEG.

>> IT'S A NICE FEELING

TO GET PUNCHED IN THE FACE.

>> NO, IT'S NOT.

>> YES, IT IS.

>> I DON'T LIKE

TO HEAR THAT AT ALL.

I ASSUME IT REALLY HURTS.

>> NOT WHEN YOU'RE USED TO IT.

NOT WHEN YOU'RE READY FOR IT.

IT'S A REALLY PLEASURABLE,

INTENSE FEELING.

[both chuckling]

>> I'LL STICK TO MASTURBATING.

>> [laughs]

OKAY.

>> WERE YOU AMAZED AT HOW

POPULAR THIS VIDEO GOT?

>> UM, NOT REALLY.

I MEAN, I KIND OF KNEW

THAT IT WAS SOMETHING SPECIAL

RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING.

AND I TRIED TO GET IT TO CATCH

ON RIGHT WHEN I SHOT IT.

AND I SENT IT TO

A BUNCH OF FRIENDS AND SAID,

"OH, LOOK AT THIS.

THIS IS SOMETHING SPECIAL."

>> HAS THAT VIDEO HELPED YOU

WITH THE LADIES?

>> NOT AT ALL.

THERE'S ALWAYS BEEN

TONS OF LADIES

THAT COME AND STAY WITH ME.

>> SO THE BEAR HAS HAD NO

PROBLEM WHEN IT COMES

TO LADY FRIENDS?

>> I WOULDN'T SAY THAT.

>> OH.

>> I MEAN, IF YOU GO LOOK

ON MY YOUTUBE PAGE,

YOU'LL SEE, LIKE, LOTS OF VIDEOS

FROM BEAUTIFUL, YOUNG WOMEN

THAT ARE COMING

TO WORK ON MY FARM.

THEY'RE CALLED WWOOFERS.

>> THEY'RE CALLED WWOOFERS?

>> YEAH.

IT'S A PROGRAM CALLED WORLD WIDE

OPPORTUNITIES ON ORGANIC FARMS,

AND, UH, PEOPLE COME

AND WORK ON YOUR FARM,

AND YOU GIVE 'EM ROOM AND BOARD.

AND MOSTLY WHO ASK IS

BEAUTIFUL, YOUNG WOMEN.

>> I ASSUME, LIKE,

YOU AND THREE GUYS

JUST INVENTED THIS SITE.

[both laughing]

>> I JUST HEARD ABOUT IT

FROM A COUCH SURFER FRIEND,

AND HE SAID,

"YOU SHOULD TRY THIS."

>> AND I SAID,

"WELL, THAT SOUNDS REALLY GOOD,

'CAUSE I JUST USE SOME HELP

ON MY FARM,"

AND, WHO ASKS, IT'S, LIKE--

THIS IS WHO DOES IT, I GUESS.

IT'S JUST YOUNG WOMEN.

>> WELL, I NEED TO KNOW WHAT

YOU THINK IS A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

BEFORE I GET IMPRESSED.

>> MOST WOMEN I THINK

ARE BEAUTIFUL.

>> SEE, THAT'S NOT ME.

I THINK 1% OF THEM ARE.

>> I THINK, LIKE,

99% OF THEM ARE.

>> OKAY.

>> WHEN WOMEN ARE YOUNG,

THEY'RE ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL.

>> YEAH.

>> I SEE BEAUTY IN THINGS.

>> I CAN'T WAIT TILL I GET

TO THAT POINT IN MY LIFE.

>> ANY MEAN YOUTUBE COMMENTS?

>> OH, THERE'S PLENTY

OF MEAN STUFF OUT THERE.

I JUST TRY TO CONSIDER

WHERE THE SOURCE IS COMING FROM.

THEY'RE JUST RESPONDING

TO WHAT THEY'RE FEELING

FROM INSIDE THEMSELVES,

SO THAT'S WHAT

THE COMMENTS MEAN.

>> I'M GONNA THROW THAT

IN MY VIEWERS' FACE.

>> YEAH,

IT'S EXACTLY WHAT THAT IS.

>> THEY WRITE MEAN THINGS

TO ME CONSTANTLY.

>> IT'S ABOUT THEM.

NOT ABOUT YOU.

>> WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE COLOR

IN THE RAINBOW?

>> OH, JEEZ.

I GUESS, WELL, RED'S PROBABLY

MY FAVORITE COLOR,

SO I GUESS I WOULD HAVE

TO SAY RED.

BUT, YOU KNOW, I DON'T REALLY

HAVE FAVORITES IN MANY THINGS.

>> DO YOU THINK IT'S FAIR

THAT THE GAY COMMUNITY

HAS TAKEN THE RAINBOW

AS THEIR OWN?

>> GAYS JUST WANT

TO LOVE EACH OTHER,

AND I DON'T THINK THERE'S

ANYTHING WRONG WITH LOVE.

>> MAYBE THE DOUBLE RAINBOW

IS ABOUT STRAIGHT SEX.

>> [laughs] THAT COULD BE IT.

I'VE ALSO HEARD THAT THERE'S

SOME TERMS NOW BEING USED,

"LET'S DO A DOUBLE RAINBOW."

[laughs]

>> THAT'S GOOD.

YOU KNOW YOU'VE MADE IT

WHEN YOU'VE CREATED YOUR OWN

SEXUAL POSITION.

DO YOU CRY OFTEN?

>> I CRY ALL THE TIME.

IT'S EASY TO MAKE ME CRY.

>> REALLY?

>> YEAH.

I'M NOT ABLE

TO FILTER MY EMOTIONS.

THEY JUST COME OUT.

IT'S, LIKE, THAT'S PROBABLY WHY

YOU GET THAT IN THE VIDEO.

>> WHAT'S THE LAST MOVIE

THAT MADE YOU CRY?

>> AH, I CRIED LAUGHING

AT THAT RED QUEEN IN--

[laughs]

IN, UH, ALICE.

ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

>> OH.

>> THAT RED QUEEN.

SHE--I LOVED HER.

>> BUT YOU CRIED?

YOU CRIED LAUGHING?

>> I CRIED LAUGHING.

>> GOTCHA.

>> YEAH, I ATE A BROWNIE.

>> OH, YOU ATE A BROWNIE.

>> AND I CONNECTED

WITH THAT RED QUEEN.

[both laughing]

>> YEAH, I LOVED HER.

>> OKAY.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS

AT THE END OF A RAINBOW?

>> I THINK MAYBE YOUR DREAMS ARE

AT THE END OF A RAINBOW.

YOU KNOW,

ALL THE DREAMS THAT YOU WANT.

>> ALL YOUR DEAD DREAMS

THAT DIDN'T COME TRUE?

>> [laughs]

>> THEY'RE STORED UP

AT THE BOTTOM.

>> [laughs]
