15+ Things That Reveal Their True Selves After a Blink or 2

There are many optical illusions that can be made specifically to trick our minds. But sometimes these visual tricks happen by chance — like a cake that looks exactly like a sponge or a tortilla that looks like the moon — and we don’t necessarily notice them at first glance.

Bright Side has compiled a list of these deceptive images that will make you question reality from now on and prove that your eyes can’t be trusted.

1. “I almost ate a praying mantis that was in my salad!”

2. An edible AirPod

3. Believe it or not, this is a cake.

4. Bottomless Converse

5. This theatre looks like a laptop at first glance.

6. A square portal in a brick wall

7. “Was wondering why this guy was staring at me from his car. Turns out, it’s an advertisement on the car behind it!”

8. Not the moon, just a tortilla...
