Teen's optical illusion photo goes viral: 'Do you see two legs or one?'

Like many other teens, Marisol Villanueva took a selfie flexing her cool ensemble and posted it on her social media. She clicked “share” and went about her day. She later discovered she had gone viral. Her outfit had created an online debate with users asking, “Do you see two legs or one in this picture?”

Villanueva is seen wearing track pants with a horizontal stripe with a vertical cream line down the side, creating an optical illusion. At first, it appears that this photo shows both of Villanueva’s legs. But your eyes might be playing tricks on you.

Her photo had racked up over 30,000 likes and over 6,000 comments (at the time of this story).

Commenters saw different things in the same image, and some saw an unusually large (not real) gap between her legs.

Others thought her legs were really slender, thinking the stripe was a division between her legs.

The 18-year-old tells Yahoo Lifestyle she is overwhelmed by all the online attention, but she’s happy she has been able to bring laughter to the internet.

“It’s crazy, I didn’t expect going viral at all,”Villanueva says. “I didn’t even realize my photo had an optical illusion until one of my followers pointed it out.”

Villanueva, who lives in Granada, Spain, is in college with the goal of becoming a lawyer.

She says people around her are more excited than she is about her going viral. “They jokingly tell me that I have skyrocketed to fame,” Villanueva said. “They also think it’s funny that I’ve become a meme.”
