Couple Take Snap Of New Sofa And Create Mind-Bending Illusion
| Last updated
A couple decided to take a few snaps after picking up a new sofa for their flat, but inadvertently created a bizarre optical illusion that will have you scratching your head.
Kellie Gnauck and Sam Cassidy, from Greenwich, London took the celebratory pics to show off their brand new velvet sofa to their family back in Australia last weekend.
However, due to the angle they're both sat at in the pic, it looks at first as if they have somehow swapped heads.
The image was so weird that even Kellie thought it was fake at first, saying she didn't actually believe optical illusions like this happened 'naturally'.
The 29-year-old said: "I'd ordered the couch back in September, so it's been about a five month wait.
"So when it finally came, it was a very big day. And we saw a photo opportunity right there, so we took it.
"The optical illusion is the only reason we put it online. It was, by far, not the nicest picture [of us].
"I honestly thought it was fake. I didn't realise these types of pictures happened naturally."
After posting the snap online, it didn't take long for it to gain some interest, and has since racked up over 1,250 likes and comments.
Sharing the pic, Kellie captioned it: "Photo shoot with your new sofa? Sure! Why not!
"And by pure luck and many blessings, we ended up with picture number three. Which might just be lockdown's finest achievement.
"Hell, it might be life's finest achievement...who's to say."
Commenting on Instagram, one of Kellie's followers said: "That last picture f***ed with my brain for a second."
While another added: "Last photo is one of those photos where you get hella confused."
But while some people thought it was a bit freaky, Sam says he doesn't see it that way at all.
The 34-year-old said: "I didn't find it creepy at all, I thought it was brilliant. I'd looked at the photo and realised how lucky we were to be chosen in such a world.
"We're a blessed pair, few people can say they've experienced such wonder.
"I think people online realised how rare this was. It's very rare - rarer than a unicorn!"
The unfortunate placement of a stranger's arm recently created a hilarious optical illusion in a woman's photo, making it appear much more X-rated than it actually was.
