Here at LittleThings, we really like optical illusions. It’s safe to say that we’re actually pretty obsessed with visual puzzles.

Take a look at this wacky “naked man” illusion that we wrote about! It’s just so fun to see how our minds play tricks on us.

Marisol Villanueva, an 18-year-old from Spain, shared two pictures on Twitter to show off her outfit. When people saw it, though, they were seriously confused by a strange optical illusion.

Everyone who saw the photos were convinced that Marisol had crazy skinny legs, since the stripe on her pants is the same color as the floor.

Obviously, Marisol has normal legs, but people were blown away by what they initially saw.

Tens of thousands of people saw Marisol’s tweet, and they couldn’t believe their eyes. So many people were absolutely sure Marisol had the skinniest legs ever!

Check out the wacky optical illusion below!

Marisol shared the above tweet showing off her outfit on February 23, 2018.

The tweet got over 6,700 retweets and over 40,000 likes.

Apparently, a lot of people saw her legs in the pictures and were convinced she had crazy skinny legs.

The stripe on her pants are exactly the same color as the floor, which makes it look like one single leg is actually two.

The image really freaked people out.

Some were even concerned about Marisol’s health!

As soon as people realized their mistake, they just thought it was funny.

Marisol also thought it was pretty hilarious that everyone assumed she had weird legs.

She definitely never expected her outfit post to get so much attention!

Eventually, Marisol had to correct everyone and assure them that she doesn’t have weirdly skinny legs.

Of course, some people decided to play with the picture a little bit.

If you were confused about how people were seeing the skinny legs, this is a good clarification.

While most people were commenting on the weird legs, some girls were commenting on how cute Marisol’s outfit was!

What did you see at first?

Did you immediately know what was going on with the picture or were you confused?
