THIS awesome optical illusion is driving people crazy because they can’t decide if this bag is blue or green.
In fact, almost two-thirds (63%) of people see a green bag, while 37% of participants see it blue. So what do YOU see?

Gala Spins is behind the crazy illusion and teamed up with Bhavin Shah, a behavioral optometrist at Central Vision Opticians, who explained exactly how and why we see different images and colors.
Bhavin said: “In this case, there is not enough information or context available on the subject, so the brain has to apply its own processing and create a reality that it feels is correct.
“Some people will process color as interior lighting and others as exterior lighting, which is why people see different colors.”
Bhavin explained that most optical illusions work because “our eyes receive optical information from light, and our brains have evolved to create a reality based on that information.”
Gala Spins also previously shared this illusion and 71% of viewers could see the orange dots moving on the purple background, while the rest couldn’t.
57% of viewers said that the blue spots on the green background moved for them, while for the rest the pattern remained the same
However, there are “many potential sources of error that can cause the brain to interpret something differently,” he said.
“The brain has many ways of filling in the missing information based on experience, learned visual responses, and understanding of the world and context,” he continued.
“Optical illusions occur when there isn’t enough information or context about an object, so our brains have to fill in the gaps, meaning different people see different things.”
Karina Adrian, Head of Brand Marketing and Partnerships at Gala Spins, added: “What we love about optical illusions is the uniqueness of what people see and how it allows them to put their own spin on things.
“Different people will look at the same image and see something completely different, all because our eyes and brains interpret what is shown to them in different ways.
“We hope our wishful thinking will have Brits scratching their heads and debating what the pictures show.”
