Start your week with a self-induced drug-free hallucination with this music video

Okay, so it’s not a standard music video, but music does factor into the process. Here’s what you do:

  1. Make sure you’re not hurt by flashing images.
  2. Open the video in full-screen mode.
  3. Stare at the centre of the image. Try to keep it up for the full lenght of the video.
  4. Change your gaze to the room around you. It will appear to expand and contract for the next 10-15 seconds.

You’re not actually hallucinating. It’s really just vision distortion as your brain readjusts. See why this is called “Acid Without Drugs?
