Every now and then an image will emerge online that completely polarises the internet and has people thinking they’re going crazy. Think back to a few years ago when a seemingly innocuous dress photographed in bright light sent the web into meltdown over its true color. Now it appears 2021 may have found its first such image.
A photo shared on Facebook to multiple groups was quickly inundated with thousands of comments with users debating what they saw at first glance. With a wintery forest backdrop, many pointed out they saw a small figure heading into the woods. Some suggested they were wearing a backpack.
However, on closer inspection, it’s quite clearly a black poodle running towards the camera. Users were split over what they saw first, with many confusing the dog’s tail as the back of the person’s head. The debate rages on.
