Some users see a pair of shiny, possibly oily legs, while others claim to see streaks of white paint. While it was originally posted on Instagram five weeks, the bizarre pic went viral after Twitter user @msbreeezyyy shared the photo with the caption, “Once you see it you can’t unsee it.”
Her photo has been retweeted by more than 12,000 people as puzzled Twitter users struggle to see both perspectives.
Here’s a sampling of the buzz:
