This bewildering optical illusion will make you literally double-take

Another day, another optical illusion. We've seen rotating horses, we've seen three-headed deer, we've seen floating ships, we've seen any number of geometric shapes that aren't moving even though they somewhat appear to be moving. And the latest to appear on TikTok will quite literally make you double-take – as in, you'll need to look at it twice to get the full effect.

Optical illusion pedlar Dean Jackson has shared an image that appears entirely different the second time you look at it. While the photo of the bridge appears black and white at first, the second time around it's in glorious technicolour. If you've followed the instructions properly, that is.
