I don't understand this optical illusion

Ah, optical illusions. The brain-frazzlers never get old, do they? Whether you're into rotating horses or levitating boats, there are so many weird and wonderful illusions out there to trick your eyes – and today's mind-boggling find is no exception. 

Tiktoker Pasillusion has shared a perplexing video of a hot pink circle (see below). The vibrant shape supposedly has an object hidden in the centre of it, but the more I look, the less I can see. While the design seems to have stumped me, many users on the social media app have flooded the comments with what they can see in the design – but what can you spot? If this head-spinner's too easy, then perhaps one of our other top optical illusions will have you bamboozled.
