This London Underground Optical Illusion Has Had Everyone Confused

Last Wednesday, a commuter captured a picture of this bizarre optical illusion on the Tube, which has since sparked slight confusion amongst a few fellow Londoners. ‘Lolihull’ (that’s his reddit name…) was travelling on the Piccadilly Line when the reflection in a glass divider caused him to do a double-take. The pane appeared to transplant a man’s head, who was visible in the reflection of the glass, onto the body of a woman sitting next to him…with hilarious results.

The image, taken by the 28-year-old from Camden, has since received more than 30,000 views on imgur, with some people taking several seconds to work out what is wrong with the picture. One Reddit user, “karma-toes”, said “that took me a good 25 seconds to see”, while another person said they initially thought those in the pictures were twins with “one dressed as a woman”. Hmmmm…we think some of you lot need your eyes/heads checked. ?
