Every now and then an image will emerge online that completely polarises the internet.
Now it appears 2021 may have found its first such image.
A photo shared on Facebook to multiple groups on Wednesday was quickly inundated with thousands of comments with users debating what they saw at first glance.
With a wintery forest backdrop, many pointed out they saw a small figure heading into the woods. Some suggested they were wearing a backpack.
However on closer inspection it’s quite clearly a black poodle running towards the camera.
Users were split over what they saw first, with many confusing the dog’s tail as the back of the person’s head.
“Whoa I totally saw a man running away and then it morphed into a dog running towards me,” one person wrote.
“Same! It was so disorientating!” someone responded.
Definitely thought it was a small human in all black running away from the camera until I realised their backpack was a giant poodle head,” one user explained.
“My brain tripped out there for a second,” another said.
Hundreds of users say their opinion changed after analysing the photo, yet others could only see the poodle.
“All I see is a dog and I’m SO CONFUSED,” another said.
“Well that’s a mind bender,” one person added.
