This Shiny Leg Optical Illusion Has the Internet Divided

Buckle your seatbelts because the internet has discovered another mind-boggling image that has the internet divided just like “the dress” did.  

The photo, which was originally posted in September, The Huffington Post reports, has just recently gone viral. Why you ask? Well, the question is: are these legs shiny and oily or do they simply have white paint on them?

When first looking at the photo, chances are that you saw a pair of very shiny legs. However, given a second glance, the shine seems to disappear and all you see is two legs with white paint on them.

According to psychologist Tom Toppino, we see the shiny legs first because of sensory cues. When we first read the question and look at the photo, it's like being primed to see the shiny legs. But when we realize that there's a possible illusion going on due to white paint, we begin to look for clues that justify this reasoning, Cosmopolitan reports. 

So although there is clearly paint supplies next to the legs, a lot of people on Twitter are not convinced. 

One thing is for sure: the internet absolutely loves optical illusions. (Although, it's obviously white paint, just saying).
