This Optical Illusion Is Driving The Internet Crazy Today

Every so often, the Internet gets a hold of a photo that causes you to reconsider how you believe your eyes render information. We all remember the dress. This week, there's another picture that's fooling viewers - at least the first time you see it.

The below photo clearly shows a brick wall, with what seems like a rock or pebble stuck in one of the cracks. The photo has apparently been around since 2014, but it didn't go viral until this week. Scroll down to see what's really going on in the picture.

Spoiler alert - that's a cigar, with a partially burned end, sticking out of the wall. Now that you've seen it, you can't unsee it.

Did you see it before reading on? Or were you fooled too?
