The video begins with the 80-year-old sitting in an armchair opening a box.

“Colored tech glasses,” he said, with a puzzled smile on his face as he lifted the lid.

A woman’s voice off camera is heard saying: “Yes, I remembered”.

A male voice is heard: “ They’re supposed to be pretty cool. Open them, try them.

Meason then takes the rose-colored glasses out of the box and passes them to someone nearby, saying “wow”.

He remarks that he “ could go fly a jet ” with the aviator-style pink shades as his family tells him “ they look cool ”.

Meason takes the glasses and puts them on.

He looks around in shock for a few seconds before saying “are you kidding me?” as he sees color for the first time through the special glasses.
