This Photograph Is Going Viral For One Bizarre Reason

It's the new optical illusion that is making the Internet go crazy: the photo of a couple embracing one another is putting everyone’s wits to the test to figure out what is going on.

The World Wide Web is very confused after the publication of a snapshot that went viral. The photo features two people who are cuddling but one cannot really discern who is embracing the other person. It's the new optical illusion that is driving everyone crazy.

Who is hugging whom?

This is neither the first nor the last optical illusion that emerges on the Internet. Regularly, Internet users are tearing their hair in front of optical illusions of all kinds. In February 2015 it was a two-tone dress that was dividing the web. While some saw it as white and gold, others saw only black and blue... Now, a new mystery has come up: the picture of a couple embracing.

In the image, we see a person sitting, the other standing, one wearing white jeans and heels, the other wearing a pink plaid shirt. Except that, when we look more closely, the man seems to be wearing heels. It's difficult at first glance to discern who is hugging the other.

The solution

The photo has already been around the Web and many Internet users have focused on this new puzzle. The solution is really simple. If at first glance, we think that the man is hugging his friend, it is in fact the opposite. The man is sitting and he is not wearing heels. It's the woman who embraces him, her head over his shoulder. Make way for the next puzzle!
