Viral Barbie optical illusion will have you haunted by Ken

We see all manner of optical illusions here at Creative Bloq, but most of them don't tend to haunt us when we close our eyes. Here's one that does exactly that, and it's either awesome or terrifying – depending on your feelings towards Ryan Gosling's Ken.

Rishi Draws is known for sharing optical illusions created on iPad, plenty of which of the close-your-eyes-and-the-image-is-still-there variety. But perhaps because of the feverish popularity of the movie itself, this Barbie-themed example seems to be going particularly viral. (Looking for more mind-benders?
