"Way out" is a colloquial term to describe someone or something that is far removed from reality or convetion.

The phrase was originated among the beatniks in the late 1950s. The Oxford English Dictionary cites the first use of the word with that meaning in the song Somewhere there's Music by G. Lea: "I turn on [sc. smoke marijuana] a little and I get way out."
