    Yes, exacty like that. Plus you see cartoon characters running around... be careful cause you may laugh to death.

    LoL Not really... the visual distortions, tracers, patterns, etc are much more surreal and trippy then those on the commercial.

    Maybe with some bad acid and a case of warm Budweiser...

    I believe Steve Jobs once said that taking LSD was one of the top three most important things he ever did in his life. Bet he directed that commercial haha.

    roserjoe- If You are expecting a simple pretty light show from an LSD experience then You will be blown away and are probably not ready for a real LSD experience. LSD will draw swiy's mind and emotins to a whole new level... the visuals really are the smallest part of the lsd trip.

    ^^^

    +2 on that. So many people romanticize the visual element of the LSD trip before they've even had a chance to take some and this sort of lackidazical mentality can often screw up one's preparation for the experience. LSD stimulates every sense. It cannot be compared to sitting down sober watching some form of visual entertainment. That element is there, but as Pinkavvy said, the visuals can be the smallest part of the trip.

    The tracers I had seen seemed to not last quite as long as those had. Although they were only one of the benefits of good acid. I wouldn't compare a commercial to the aspects LSD would apply to every single one of you's 6 senses. Remember, sight is only one.

    As far as OEVs in the mirror go, that example is a lot closer to the experience indeed.

    Yes, I know about the "mind fuck" with acid, and knows that is the most amazing part of the trip. I was just wondering if the visuals were similar to that.

    Yup, stumbling across a mirror on your first trip can be quite an experience.

    it's something to bear in mind if you are ever guiding anyone on a first time (especially because they often find it when alone in the bathroom)

    I wonder if LSD's dramatic effects on Steve Jobs (the man who IS apple) had any effect on the company's reputation for producing the most creative and ingenious products in the computing world.

    ^ Books have been written on the topic, Steve and Woz have been mentioned. It's pretty well accepted that psychedelics played an important role in the development of technology in Silicon Valley.

    More than that, LSD was a major influence on the design on the Berkeley System Distribution, which is the basis for pretty much all modern flavors of Unix. No LSD = No modern UNIX = No Internet

    Swim tells me that playing around with the Bash shell is really quite enjoyable while under the influence, but Swim's a computer nerd.

    I really should have said bay area instead of Silicon Valley.

    The first time SWIW saw this ad it was a poster at a bus stop.
    He was tripping and stopped and stared at it for a good 20minutes in sheer confusion as to if it really looked that way and was mesmerised by it.
    After a while he became distracted by street lights but the memory of that poster lives on.
