Take a look at this picture and see if you can figure out who's hugging who. HOW DID THE GUY IN FRONT GET HIS FEET TO FACE BACKWARDS???!?!

People on the internet are freaking out about this optical illusion. The prevailing theory is that it just looks like that because the guy in front is wearing athletic shorts that are white on the inside and black (or dark blue) on the sides.

Via Sixpenceee:
Like many interesting scientific discoveries, this one was an accident. Sean Murphy, an undergraduate student, was working alone in the lab on a set of faces for one of his experiments. He aligned a set of faces at the eyes and started to skim through them. After a few seconds, he noticed that some of the faces began to appear highly deformed and grotesque. He looked at the especially ugly faces individually, but each of them appeared normal or even attractive. He called it the “Flashed Face Distortion Effect”.
