This optical illusion of a 'floating' Shelley Hennig has gone viral

My, how the internet loves a good optical illusion.

Whether it's arguing over what colour a dress is, trying to fathom out if a child is underwater or not or being confused by a pair of shiny legs, we can't get enough of the bloody things.

Yet again, it seems many eyes are being deceived by a new optical illusion, seen below.

In it we see American model and actress Shelley Hennig and a pair of gold shoes at a recent ComicCon event.


As we can all quite clearly see, Hennig has mastered the ability to float above her pair of gold shoes, even though she doesn't appear to be treating it as any big deal.

Many who have seen it - if only for a few fractions of a second - have been confused by the image, including the person responsible for the much-retweeted tweet below.

Just in case anyone's brain still isn't able to process what's actually happening in the image, we should provide the very simple explanation: that Shelley has simply taken her shoes off and is standing alongside them.
