Last year it was Dressgate. This year, it’s the brick wall.

But while it was easy to see the challenge posed by the ambiguous-colored dress, the brick wall is much more frustrating, mostly because it’s hard to even tell there’s an illusion going on.

Facebook user Arron Bevin posted the picture, along with the caption “This is one of the best optical illusions I’ve ever seen… Took me a good 5 minutes.”

Once you see the answer, you’ll never be able to unsee it. You’ll be kicking yourself because it’s so deceptively simple.
