Shiny legs or white paint? The internet is divided


(WCBD)— This optical illusion has the internet going crazy.

A picture of these legs has gone viral on Twitter after people struggled to figure out whether they had streaks of paint on them or if they were covered in oil.

On Monday, Instagram user Hunter Culverhouse shared this mind-bending photo of their legs to their Instagram account, according to BuzzFeed.

People were instantly confused by the photo, which was taken down by Wednesday afternoon.

As BuzzFeed reports, Culverhouse said the whole thing was sort of an accident.

“I was finishing off some art homework and had some white paint left on my brush and just decided to draw random lines, I had no intentions of making it look shiny,” Culverhouse told BuzzFeed News.
