What's better than an utterly perplexing optical illusion, you ask? An illusion that features a celebrity, of course. Business mogul Elon Musk has taken over the wacky world of optical illusions today with this mind-bending (and slightly disturbing) design.

If you turn your device around so the photo is the right way up, you can see a terrifying edited image of Musk. Loving this brain-boggler and fancy some more?
