When looking at this trippy flashing skull illusion, does it appear to be coming toward you? Does it look like it’s moving? Although it is moving, the skull is staying in the same place as the GIF cycles through. It’s simple changing colors and giving the illusion of movement.

It’s a pretty tough illusion to stare at for too long, so if you start to get a headache, you’ll definitely want to look away! If you can, that is. It’s also pretty mesmorizing.

  1. You have a warning, but that doesn’t protect people from the constant flashing of the thumbnail. It’s irritating for anyone and dangerous for those of us who are affected by such displays. Please freeze the thumbnails.
