This 'optical illusion' eye test is the most frustrating thing online

We love a good optical illusion here at Creative Bloq, but some of the things described as illusions these days are just plain frustrating. In the latest viral 'eye test' doing the rounds online, we're asked if we can see the hidden number in a mass of noise.

It takes some searching, but if you squint a bit, you should be able to make out a number hidden in the static. Too easy? We have a whole collection of mind-blowing optical illusions to amaze you.
