ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
This is awesome. Especially because the consensus around here is that double rainbow guy sounds like he is getting blown in the original.
If the Double Rainbow Ice Cream Company is smart they’ll license this as a jingle.
Omg. This is the best thing that has ever happened on the internet! So intense!!!
God Owl City sucks.
Download the autotune… of the rainbow song!
“Like Owl City, but with actual emotions.”
Thanks for adding more negativity to the world. I wish the internet had a miserable filter to exclude all the unnecessary criticism. If you don’t like it don’t listen to it.
Shit that’s the funniest thing I have seen on the internet recently. Almost spat my breakfast onto the screen. I love the auto-tuned laughs. Fantastic!
That’s not just “schmoyoho” — it’s Michael Gregory of the The Gregory Brothers, best known for the Auto Tune the News series, previously featured on BoingBoing:
In related news, their Meet the Gregory Brothers EP is incredible musicianship and songwriting (no Auto-Tune involved). Highly recommended.
Brilliant. Best meme this year.
It’s official: People in the 21st century are way funnier than any other in history. The poor guy, though. I hope he can see the humour in all of this.
libraryboi = chris crocker. “Leave OWL CITY ALONE!!!!”
Instead of unicorn chasers in the future, double rainbows all the way across the sky would be a fine substitute.
Chuck Norris’ irises were full-formed double rainbows at birth.
There was once a perpetual double rainbow that was so much bigger and more brilliant than any other, that it would have brought peace on Earth. Scientists studied it for months and could not explain how it formed and why it would not go away — it was a gift from the gods. Chuck Norris awoke one morning, and with the bright dessert sun upon him he squinted in the direction of the rainbow, which the rainbow mistook for him being angry; it immediately vanished.
This should be the theme song for Amor Unicorn Keep!
done a little sloppier, but i find this double rainbow song more fun. maybe it’s just me.
Have you seen “Double Rainbow: the board game”? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fw5ah1A33Qc
Not sure I get all the hate toward Owl City these days. You’re talking about a guy who was 20, 21 years old, making music entirely on his own using computers in a home studio in his off-time. Seems pretty Boing-y to me.
I don’t listen to the radio, is he that omnipresent that it’s to the annoying level?
Yeah I’m pretty sure when Cory talks about the Copyfight he doesn’t mean ‘musicians who make facsimile versions of other people’s songs and then try to pass them off as their own.’
Seriously, Owl City’s greatest artistic statement was putting Burj al-Arab Hotel on the cover of his album but I don’t think he got the joke.
At the last job I had, the radio was tuned to a station that played Firefly all the time. I find that guy’s voice extremely obnoxious and the inane lyrics make it even less bearable.
Well then I guess this is for you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyasBBoQqCA
Funnier if you’ve seen the original video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psuRGfAaju4
I get so annoyed when someone successfully lampoons something I like. Hahaha.
Haha thanks for that and for being a sport.
I like Owl City, it’s just a joke.
I love you.
That was hilariously awesome, but wtf is Owl City?
An entire collection of Full Double Rainbow Songs:
this is awesome.
as are rainbows. rainbows are awesome.
and some day, when i meet the right rainbow, i will have exactly the same reaction. and i will refrain from filming it and posting it on youtube.
Yes it is. And neither will I. But bless them what did, and the remix artists too.
LMFAO!! That’s freakin’ brilliant!!
