(August 17, 2015) – Imagine seeing a color that you’ve never seen before. The idea is hard to imagine, but that’s exactly what happened to this man in the latest viral video.

Aaron Williams-Mele is colorblind. His parents gave him a pair of Enchroma Color for the Colorblind glasses for his birthday. The glasses use technology to boost color vision.

Williams-Mele says he decided to try on the glasses for the first time during a sunset at Whitehurst Beach in Norfolk, Virginia.

The experience was obviously very emotional for him.

The video was posted August 15, and in just two days it has over 820,000 views.
