Mind-bending optical illusion shows ‘massive crowd at a concert’ … can you work out what’s going on?

THIS mind-bending optical illusion appears to show a massive crowd at a concert – but can you guess what's really going on?

It's hard not to feel like your missing out on a great show after first glancing at the image, but not everything is as it seems.

The unbelievable snap seems to show an extravagant colourful stage set in front of thousands of adoring fans.

Boasting what resemble huge stage lights and extravagant decorations, it certainly appears to be quite the party.

But if you take a closer look, you will realise the reality is quite the opposite of what your brain thinks you are looking at.

The incredible concert is actually just a cotton picker blitzing through a field at night.


Optical illusion means you’ll see this black & white picture look very different

Optical illusion leaves everyone’s brain hurting – but can YOU figure it out?

The huge harvester was simply working the grave shift collecting the natural fibre – but instead, it looks like the rave of a lifetime.

The crowd is in fact just a row of cotton plants waiting to be picked.

Your mind managed to trick you into seeing something entirely different due to how the visual areas of the brain receive and process information.

It distorted your perception as when our brain and eyes try to communicate, the interpretation of the image was messed up.
