Another year, another optical illusion set to boggle your mind and have you wondering if you need your eyesight tested.
This time, it’s an intricate grid of grey lines with 12 black dots appearing at various axis points.
The only problem, though, is that almost everyone is seeing a different number of black dots.
The riddling image first appeared on Imgur and then Reddit on Monday and wasted no time in going viral within hours.
According to the poster, djeclipz, four dots should appear horizontally on the top, middle and bottom rows. But for some reason, only one row can be focussed on at a time, with the other two disappearing.
Naturally, people got confused pretty quickly.
“It’s like playing whack-a-mole with your eyes,” one Redditor commented.
“What. The. Hell. Why does this work?! I went from straining to see four to seeing eight easily,” another wrote.
