Blind Film Critic Tommy Edison Asks Sighted People to Explain Colors

Tommy Edison, known online as The Blind Film Critic, approached attendees of the online video convention VidCon to explain the concept of color to him — something he’s never experienced thanks to having been blind since birth. Edison asked strangers to describe specific colors, and the responses are unsurprisingly all over the place.

Purple, okay. I’d say purple is really deep. It’s a bit like a mystery. It sort of has that atmosphere.
