There’s something funny about that crack in the brick wall, but can you figure out what it is?

The photo is actually an optical illusion has some begging to be put out of their misery as they try to see what so many others have already figured out.

A word of warning, however – once you spot the optical illusion, you’ll never be able to see it the same way again.

Manchester, UK, resident Aaron Bevin posted the mind-bending image on his Facebook with the message, “This is one of the best optical illusions Iv seen.  If you see it. Don’t spoil it!!!!!  Just like n share!!!”

    No, Fox. I am not going to click on a Facebook link. Sorry. Nice clickbait attempt though, I am sure you will catch some suckers with it.

      What makes it even more pathetic is that they posted the wrong pic of a brick wall. So now people all over GR are looking at that photo wondering what the heck the illusion is, when it isn’t even the right pic!

      I have seen the actual “illusion”, and it isn’t even an illusion. It is just a plain old cigar stuck in a brick wall, and is very obviously someone attempting to go viral on purpose with the help of their reddit friends in order to troll people. The real sucker here is Fox17, who fell for it.
