Terrific optical illusion by Victoria Skye. @RichardWiseman @chriscfrench

Those horizontal bars are bent at an angle, right? WRONG. They are straight, parallel lines.


Not convinced? Try looking at it from a different point of view.

Just in case you still need convincing (so do I, tbh), here's a dancing bear to prove it once and for all.

You can't argue with a dancing bear.
