As well as dancing, miming and whatever else the cool kids are up to these days, TikTok is quickly becoming a go-to destination for optical illusions. And with over 30M Likes, a user called Adeline is one of the leading figures of the mind-boggle movement (that's what we're calling it now, okay).

Adeline's latest video (below) is definitely the most baffling yet, and it's left over 1M users scratching their heads. What appears to be a simple drawing of a corridor takes a strange turn when, as the camera moves, the perspective changes (it's hard to explain, just watch it below). Check out the best optical illusions if you're looking for more examples.
