Do you see a car door or a beach?

The latest optical illusion that’s hurting our brains, confounding our eyes, and going viral on Twitter all comes down to a car door.

On July 2, Twitter user @nxyxm posted a photo with a caption that posited that those who can see “beach, ocean sky, rocks, and stars” are artists. Here’s the picture in question.

The caption goes on to explain that, actually, it’s part of a car door that needs to be repaired.

Having trouble seeing it? Us, too. What helps to get the whole picture is to see that the shadow on the “sand” is actually the shadow of the car over a rocky road. The area where the ocean waves are breaking is actually the cracked plastic at the bottom of a car door.

If you’re still confused, you’re not alone. Plenty of “artists” on Twitter were baffled.

What do you see?
