An optical illusion on social media never fails to bag the attention of netizens. One recent video is going viral, leaving viewers open-mouthed as they try to figure out how traffic disappears into what looks like a river and a bridge.
The video, shared by Twitter user Daniel Dutch, shows cars and bikes driving down a road in an unknown location and disappearing into what looks like a bridge over water. Posting the clip online this week, Daniel wrote: 'Yes, the traffic just disappears'.
The baffling video amassed over 200,000 views and thousands of retweets and comments, with some branding it the 'Bermuda triangle', reported Daily Mail. While there were others who pointed out that the video was simply an optical illusion and what appeared to be a river and a bridge was in fact a dirty roof with a raised ledge overlooking the road.
One Twitter user wrote: 'I'm still scratching my head!', while one questioned: 'How is it possible?'. While, after seeing the answer one person wrote: 'It's the roof of a building, the dirt underneath the wall creates the illusion (along with perspective) that it's an overpass'.
