Fond of optical illusions? This viral picture has left Twitterati dazed and confused

Only recently people on the Internet were divided in their opinion on whether they heard Yanny or Laurel in an audio clip, now the recent to spark a debate has been a picture, rather an optical illusion. It is of a man standing and a woman hugging him from behind, but it is perhaps the way they are standing or the way it was clicked, it looks the other way round and cracking this is driving people on social media crazy. We are not joking that the picture confuses you the moment you think you cracked it.

This has really confused people on social media. While some resolutely believe that it is the girl who is sitting, others have tried to outline the photograph to make it easier for the rest. Some even posted similar pictures of themselves. While one wrote, “I see it now! but I still can’t unsee it the other way around!” another wrote, “He’s sitting in the chair with the red on. The woman is leaning into his shoulder from behind him. It took me a minute.”
