Twins Leave Viewers Baffled With Amazing Mirror Illusion

Two twins created an illusion by pretending to be one woman checking out her dress in a mirror, and it's certainly blown the minds of some viewers. Watch below:


Sharonna and Karonna Atkins, from Jamaica, filmed themselves standing in front of each other and touching each other's hand in perfect unison.

The video, which was filmed from behind one of the twins, made it seem like they were just one person checking her dress in the mirror.

She messed around with the neckline of her dress before placing her hand on the 'mirror' - which was in fact her twin's hand.

She can be seen tapping what the viewer assumes is a mirror, before making a fist and bashing it some more. Then the pair link hands before turning to the camera and smiling for everyone to see what they were actually up to. Bravo.

The clip has now gone viral online with more than 600,000 views but it seems it wasn't quite as effortless as it looks.

Karonna explained "It didn't go smoothly while recording. Prior to recording we practised a few times to ensure we'd know the moves, then practised again to do it in sync, then practised everything in one go.

"But Sharonna wanted us to add a little twist and we decided to pretend as if the person is fixing her dress. Now that idea caused us to practise a tad longer because we had to make it spot on with every moment."

Replying to their video, one person wrote: "Tha fuqqqqqqqqqqq. Y'all almost give me a heart attack. This is soooooo creative and beautiful."

Another added: "Y'all got me at first. Had to watch it a couple times," while a third said: "Thought it was a mirror though. You guys got me this time around."

Sounds like they had everyone.

Two women who can now start doing similar illusions are Cheng Keke and Zhang Li, who found out they are identical twins after spotting their visual similarities on social media.

The pair came across each other when Cheng's younger sister spotted Zhang on social media site Douyin. From there they formed a strong bond before meeting for the first time in March.

Cheng said: "We speak in exactly the same voice. When we are together, it is like looking in a mirror."

Cheng continually badgered her parents about her mysterious doppelganger until they eventually admitted that she was adopted.

Zhang's mum subsequently revealed that her family was unable to afford twins and she had no idea what had happened to her other daughter.

A DNA test was then carried out at the end of April and the pair were delighted to find out that they are in fact related.
