Yes, It's Purple: Man Dons EnChroma Colorblind Glasses To See Earth's Beauty | colorblind

There aren't many videos on the internet that can break down my stone-cold heart and turn me into a pile of happy tears, but there's something so beautiful about discovery that I can't help it. This week's emotional breakdown is brought to you by the life-changing geniuses at EnChroma, a company that produces glasses for the colorblind so that they may see the colors the rest of us enjoy daily.

If you haven't heard of this company yet, you're in for a treat. Many people throughout the world have colorblindness, where some colors are much more dull or sometimes completely different compared to what non-colorblind folk can see. Imagine not being able to fully appreciate the gorgeous greens and purples in a field of lavender.

The best damn friend ever, James, bought his buddy Ethan a pair of EnChroma glasses for his birthday. What started out as a simple day at the office turned into a day that I'm sure neither man will forget. From being "scared" of a canister of Lysol for being SO purple, to being blown away by just how green leaves are, Ethan runs through the gambit of emotions and it'll warm your heart in every way imaginable. As a fair warning, Ethan does let some profanity slip out, but can you really blame him? No... no you can't, because I won't let you.

Enjoy the happy feels:
