After I saw it, I couldn't un-see it.  Weird.
 
2016-05-17 08:37:02 PM  
Oh.

Well... it's.... something.

Brix were not shat.

Is it an optical illusion if you see it right away? This has to be the lowest bar for any optical illusion ever. It's not dress-level, I'll tell you that.
 
2016-05-17 09:57:51 PM  
It's blue and white.
 
2016-05-17 10:10:28 PM  
Yeah, I don't see it. I mean, I don't see a brick wall or anything for that matter as the picture didn't load. Just blank space on the page.

If that is not the joke could somebody post the picture in the thread?

"optical illusion" is right. I saw the "cigar" but thought it was a dog turd.
 
2016-05-17 10:26:24 PM  
I could give less than the square root of a f*ck what color the dress that particular wall was wearing.

Clintoned in the brickies

That is a great example of how your brain hates your eyes.

The ash was a rock to me and my brain didn't want it to be anything else coontil the cigar was suggested.
 
2016-05-17 10:31:42 PM  
I saw the cigar right away, and kept trying to figure out what else I was supposed to be looking at.

Weak.
 
2016-05-17 10:32:45 PM  
Yeah, that's not an optical illusion.  It's camoflauge.
 
2016-05-17 10:34:57 PM  
Another cigar related optical illusion. Once you see it, you'll never unsee it.

Anytime I hear about something that "has gone viral" or "the internet is abuzz about...." I know it's lowest common denominator crap.

I saw a guy with binoculars.
 
2016-05-17 10:40:11 PM  
Stuck it in Photoshop and farked with the gamma correction to finally see it.

No it's not. It's a scooner.

My brain read it as schooner.

Better schooner than later.

The real question is: what "artist" took this photo in the first place thinking this was something worth photographing? 'Cause it's certainly no optical illusion. Saw it before I even saw that there bricks around it.

I don't feel like enabling 20 different scripts in order to see it. Can someone post the photo here?

No, it's a streetlight.

I don't get it. There's a cigar stuck in the bricks. Where's the optical illusion?

When some people look at it (including me) it first looks like the body of the cigar is part of the space between the bricks and the end is a rock stuck in the wall.

It took me a few seconds to realize what I was looking at, and I can easily switch back and forth between the two images. It's somewhat near but not all that special. Even before I initially saw the cigar, I thought that space was oddly straight.

Bricks were not shiat, thank God.

I saw the cigar immediately, but then again I smoke cigars on a weekly basis.

Ya think?

It's ok, somebody posted it. Funny, I saw the ash and thought it had something to do with that, but I had to read "the answer" before I was able to see the whole thing.

I thought the ash was the head of some snake peeking out between the cracks.

Didn't see the cigar until I came here and read the comments.

Eh, not bad, but that's all.
