Another optical illusion is here to fry your brain

We've seen all manner of optical illusions here at Creative Bloq, but our favourite genre has to be Things That Look That They're Moving But Aren't Even Though They Really, Really Look Like They're Moving. Falling squarely (or rather, circularly) into that category is this pair of circles that we still can't quite get our heads around.

Courtesy of our favourite Twitter-based optical illusion artist jagarikin, this latest illusion features two spinning circles. Throw in a pair of directional arrows, and the circles appear to be sliding in said direction. Except, they aren't. (Like having your mind blown? Check out our favourite optical illusions.)
