Imagine living in a world virtually devoid of access to technology. Then you are suddenly removed from that environment and placed in a world that is heavily reliant on gadgets and technology. How would you feel? Confused? Probably. Lost? Obviously.

This is the real-life experience of 69-year-old Otis Johnson.

News network Al-Jazeera documented Johnson’s first-hand experience of today’s world and his reflection on what he saw around him. Watch his thoughts on the “crazy world” he re-entered in this video:
