Optical illusions can often lead us to feel disturbed and confused, such as in the case of a past viral video of a creature that appeared like a bird and rabbit from different angles.
Now, an innocent picture of a girl holding popcorn in her hands has an eerie quality due to an optical illusion that is hard to shake, causing it to go viral on social media.
The original image posted on Facebook quickly garnered over 230K shares and 46K reactions, according to LADbible.
The same image is also shared on Twitter, and receives 41K likes and 12.9K retweets to date. Many Twitter users admitted to falling for the optical illusion, with one saying she thought the girl had “sugar cane sticks” for legs, while another described it as “chicken legs.”
A user even claimed that the picture almost caused her to “throw up” due to how horrifying it seemed at first. Others who saw through the illusion quickly responded with laughing emojis.
It turns out that the girl’s legs are just partially hidden by the popcorn that managed to camouflage with the background.
