'It had me messed up': Weird optical illusion baffles the internet

Social media users are mesmerised by an image of a little girl that requires a second glance.

The photo has been widely shared on the internet. At first, it appears to be a girl with strangely skinny legs.

Some who responded to the post thought the photo was weird, but it didn't take long for people to realise the girl is holding a seemingly invisible bag of popcorn in front of her, making her legs looks thin.

Without trying to pretend like a photo expert, it appears the popcorn is camouflaged because it clashes with the colour of the grass in the background of the image.

"It had been messed up for a few minutes," one Facebook commenter wrote.

"I thought something was wrong with her leg," another said.

The internet always loves a good optical illusion. Earlier this year, the internet was transfixed by a video of an animal, with opinion divided on whether it was a bird or a rabbit.

Turns out it was a bird; a white-necked raven from Missouri named Mischief.

In 2017, an image of a dog got the internet completely befuddled. At first glance, it appeared to be a dog that had some sort of alarming physical deformity.

People had to tilt their heads to the left to realise there was actually nothing wrong with the pooch.
