A black and white geometric patterned carpet has taken the Twittersphere by storm.

Despite covering a completely flat and even floor, the carpet offers an optical illusion which makes it seem as though there are massive craters throughout that one could easily fall into. 

The carpet, which covers the floor of a French electronics shop, has prompted Twitter users to concoct some truly diabolical plans. 

More sensible Twitter users have pointed out that the carpet could prove quite dangerous to people with epilepsy or dementia.

Whether you love it or hate it - everyone agrees the carpet is a pretty evil design indeed.
