The latest optical illusion to take the internet by storm is one of the most confusing yet…

Warning: it will really hurt your brain.

There’s something about the way that they can disrupt our sense of reality that makes us feel incredibly uncomfortable.

While a lot of internet content seems to be a little problematic, controversial, or divisive, it’s nice to be able to all agree on something.

Like this bizarre picture in which at least one of the girls appears to have no legs.

This picture was originally shared on Instagram, and people went wild, questioning whether it showed some super greasy legs – or some expertly placed white paint.

Perhaps it feels nice to give up control and admit that the world is just weird and crazy.

Sometimes, a particular optical illusion will come along that just sends the internet crazy – and not in a good way.

And it’s had everyone scratching their heads in confusion.

Or so the internet would have us believe. Reddit users soon realized that this was far from an ordinary shot.

And the post has since racked up hundreds of comments from frustrated users.

Notice anything?

More specifically, pay close attention to the couple’s legs.

Which legs belong to who? Do they both even have legs? What the hell is going on?!

One clever Reddit user by the name of ladypine has revealed the secret to the illusion.

“Okay this makes sense,” she explained. “The guy is wearing shorts that are black and white. The girl is wearing a black dress, which gives the illusion that the black part of the shorts goes higher than the white part, but it’s just her dress making it look that way.”
