TikToker shares hilarious X-rated optical illusion in beach photo

TikToker shares hilarious X-rated optical illusion in beach photo

Once you see it, you can't unsee it

Whether you want to admit it or not, it’s so jarring when you think you’ve finally gotten the perfect photo to reawaken your Instagram or that’s actually acceptable enough to go on Hinge but realise there’s someone ruining it in the background.

Maybe they’ve walked past and covered up the view of where you ‘found yourself’, or they’re pulling an annoying face in a photobomb attempt.

Or, maybe they’ve somehow created an X-rated optical illusion - which happened to one woman’s photo.

TikToker Madi Marotta (@madimarrota) previously shared a video retelling the time she tried to get a 'cute pic’ on a beach in Miami while posing in her bikini.

Starting off the viral clip looking pretty unimpressed, she wrote: “I tried to take a cute pic on South Beach and this lady's arm makes me look like my peen is hanging out. Enjoy."

The video then cuts to the image in question, showing Marotta standing on the beach.

At first, it doesn't seem like there's anything wrong, but on closer inspection, you can see that perhaps there is something unusual about her silhouette.

As Marotta was posing, she had no idea the woman standing behind her would create an inappropriate illusion - her arm poking out of Marotta's crotch area to look like a penis.

What a nightmare.

The video has since gone on to gain millions of views as users make the optical illusion realisation within seconds.

Many have dubbed the clip the 'best TikTok' they've seen, with plenty saying they 'laughed out loud' when the big reveal came.

One commented: "I WASN'T EXPECTING IT TO BE THAT BAD."

Someone else wrote: "I'm so sorry, I laughed harder than expected."

A third said: "GIRL IDK WHAT I EXPECTED BUT IT WASN'T THAT PLSSS."

In later posts, Marotta said she had posted the original photo on Instagram to see if anyone would notice, but 'within five seconds' was inundated with messages from concerned friends that she decided to delete it.

She explained how she shared another photo as part of a gallery post, allowing followers to swipe to see her ruder 'd*** pic'.

But a friend messaged her almost instantly, saying: "Madi it literally looks like you have a d*** in that second pic."

Marotta said she'd tried to edit the woman's arm out of the picture but wasn't happy with the end result so ended up just posting the first picture without its X-rated counterpart.
