Well you can certainly understand why he’s freaking out like that. Just imagine seeing a brand new colour that you could never even fathom before; it would be completely insane.

Kinda reminiscent of that awesome video of the deaf woman hearing for the first time – you’ll want to get the tissues out for that one.
