The original photo that went viral.
The internet has become a strange place for optical illusions. Who could forget the viral debate over the blue or white dress (depending on who you asked)? Then there was this trippy brick wall photo which drove everyone nuts, now we have this altered photo of strawberries that will surely confuse the hell out of you.
First posted by Akiyoshi Kitaoka, a psychology professor at Ritsumeikan University in Japan, the puzzling image shows what red strawberries would look like without red pixels. This modification caused some people to see grey strawberries, while others saw brown. For the most part, most people might still see red strawberries because, according to NYMag, your brain will attempt to color correct the image — regardless of the photo being altered.
Many people took to Twitter to express their befuddlement at this viral photo. Check out what they had to say ahead.
