Justin Bieber appeared to dump a large chunk of his camera roll onto Instagram yesterday, uploading a whopping 26 snaps in just one hour. From a selfie with his finger up a friend’s nose (gross, right?) to a shot of his head super imposed onto Halsey’s body, the YouTube star turned pop icon has been branching out from his usual formula of staged “candids”, tour snaps and ab shots.
But one in particular seems especially peculiar. The upload in question shows a YouTube search bar with the words “MDMA used for” – that’s ecstasy, kids – typed out, and an absolutely bizarre video playing underneath.
The video, entitled “When People Get High As F*ck,” starts off with a Jerry Springer clip, which then transitions to an interview with a shirtless hippy. The interviewer asks him, “What do you think the meaning of life is?” To which our shirtless friend replies, “To live in the mystery and to find purpose.” MIND BLOWN.
We discovered that the hippy in question is internet comedian Matthew Silver
He actually makes some pretty delightful videos, including this wonderfully pure dance number. Matthew, we like the cut of your jib.
We still have no idea why Justin shared the surreal clip. Is he trying to warn his young fans about the dangers of narcotics? Was he high af? Is this all a mysterious performance art? All we know is:
