Woman’s creepy wedding dress reflection is being compared to something from Black Mirror


We thought spooky season was over!

A woman has gone viral for terrifying viewers over what should have been one of the best days of her life when she viewed her wedding dress in the mirror.

While you’d be forgiven for seeing this seemingly innocuous video and scrolling on past, if you stop to take a look a bit further, you’ll see something shudder-inducing.

Writer and comedian Tessa Coates wrote on Instagram: “Okay hello! Upgraded from stories to the grid.

“I went wedding dress shopping and the fabric of reality crumbled. This is a real photo, not photoshopped, not a pano, not a Live Photo.

“If you can’t see the problem, please keep looking and then you won’t be able to unsee it. Full story in my highlights. Please enjoy this glitch in the matrix/photo that me nearly vomit in the street. Also, I’m engaged!”

If you look carefully, you’ll see that Coates is actually in three different poses at once, reflecting two poses in the mirrors that are different from the way she is standing in the video.

“How…is this possible? Also, congrats!! Delighted for you. And now concerned because those guys in suits will come for you,” one Instagram user commented.

“What in the Black Mirror is happening,” another confused user wrote.

“I really enjoyed the spookiness of this,” said a third.

But what do you think? A simple tech error or proof we live in a simulation?
