NORFOLK, Va. — 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 Aug. 15 and has over 820,000 views.
