Model’s ‘Optical Illusion’ Photo Has The Internet Scratching Their Head

While this hasn’t blown up like the now iconic blue and black dress, it still has the internet buzzing, and that’s because it features a model who confused everyone by recently sharing a photo that either shows one of her legs or she’s just extremely skinny. And let’s just say that most folks thought the latter.
Marisol Villanueva, an 18-year-old model from Granada, Spain, who goes by ‘Rose,’ on Twitter, shared the photo which simply shows her wearing a horizontal stripe jumper and joggers with a line down the side of them.
Have a look:

But instead of a line, people thought they were looking at a huge gap between her legs.
Here’s a closer look:

This is more confusing than the white and gold/ black and blue dress that went viral in 2015 https://t.co/RMEYFsdhL0

Here’s what Villanueva had to say to Daily Mail:
“At first I felt a little scared because I didn’t notice the optical illusion so wasn’t expecting it at all, and the idea of such a big amount of people seeing a picture of me was crazy. I also didn’t know how the people who know me in real life would react. But almost everyone’s being nice and I’m glad that I made a lot of people laugh!”
While I’m writing this, Villanueva’s tweet has gotten over 36k likes. I’ve never even gotten 36 likes on one of my tweets, but now I know the key is to freak everyone out with a photo of my body. That or be a model.
And this viral tweet is another reminder that anything can make you go viral in today’s society.
