An optical illusion video that has gone viral online might just make you rub your eyes in disbelief. The clip was originally posted to video-sharing platform TikTok by a woman named Tori Pareno, who later shared it on Twitter. In the video, she creates an optical illusion by moving her fingers quickly to make it appear as if the palm of one hand is moving through the other. Coupled with peppy music in the background, the trick has left many Twitter users doing a double take.
"Here's something trippy for your night," wrote Tori Pareno while sharing the video on Twitter on Thursday. Take a look at her optical illusion video below:

This isn't the first time that an optical illusion video has given social media users a headache. A few months ago, a video of an arrow that wouldn't point left, no matter how it was turned, left the Internet totally flummoxed.
