The internet is flummoxed by this optical illusion of six girls with only five pairs of legs

What’s
going on?

The INSIDER Summary:

• A girl seems to be missing her legs in this
optical illusion.


• She definitely has legs, guys.
All the women are leaning so they seem removed
from their lower bodies.
And one girl’s legs are hidden behind another
person’s.


There’s a viral optical illusion
going around Reddit
right now. In it, someone seems to be
missing their legs.

Look at the photo of those Green Bay Packers fans closely: There
are six women, but it looks like there are only five pairs of
legs. The girl in the middle of the couch appears
completely legless.

But a closer look reveals that’s not the case. There are
multiple solutions presented in
the Reddit thread
, and almost all of them are entirely wrong.

Here’s how it really works: The woman in the middle is
leaning to her left, meaning the legs to her right actually
belong to her. The second woman from the left is wearing
black jeans, which are hidden behind the woman on the very
left end of the couch.

I know that sounds confusing, so here’s an illustration that
shows how it works. I brightened up the image to make things
more clear.

They
all have their legs.

As you can see, the woman outlined in yellow is leaning her
body to her left, making her legs appear to belong to the
woman outlined in blue. 

Both women on the end of the couch — outlined here in red
and blue — are wearing black jeans, but brightening the
image makes it clear that they are two different shades of black.
One leg of the blue woman is slightly visible (you can see
her shoe), and the other is totally obscured behind the red
woman’s legs.

And here’s a closer look, so you can see everything even more
clearly.
