This Is Literally Every Person Who Comes Back from Burning Man [Video]

Conor Cawley

Every year, scores of people descend on Black Rock Desert in Nevada for Burning Man, a festival that boasts a temporary community that erects itself out of nowhere. Millions of people cover their eyes, dress up in extravagant outfits, and let the world flow through them in the most transcendent experience possible. At least, that's what they think.

If you've ever encountered someone the day after Burning Man, you'll likely be privileged to a plethora of condescending remarks on how “you'll never understand” and “what do you mean you don't get it?” Even tech titans like Eric Schmidt get in on the fun and likely make his employees feel like they missed out on Monday morning.

However, if you haven't had the pleasure of talking to one of the enlightened souls right after their enchanting journey, this video will do more than enough to make you feel inadequate.
