Watch Susan Sarandon’s Trippy Burning Man Tribute to LSD Guru Timothy Leary (NSFW Video)

“Thelma & Louise” actress spreads counterculture icon’s ashes at annual Nevada freak-fest

As the Moody Blues once pointed out, Timothy Leary’s dead — but a part of his spirit lived on at the Burning Man Festival in Black Rock Desert, Nevada, over the weekend.

“Thelma & Louise” star Susan Sarandon paid tribute to ’60s psychologist and LSD guru Leary at the annual desert freak-fest, and now there’s trippy video documentation of the groovy happening.

As Sarandon notes in the video, Leary — who died in 1996 — had most of his ashes jettisoned into space, but left some of his cremains to a number of people, including her. The tribute to Leary culminated with Sarandon and her eccentric friends spreading Leary’s at the festival.

“I’ve been wondering what to do with these ashes all this time, because he was a prophet, really,” Sarandon says in the video.

WARNING: The video contains snippets of naked neo-hippie ass and a urinating statue, so if you work at the Vatican, it might be not safe for work.
