IF you can spot a legendary pop icon in this stunning optical illusion, it means you’re in the top 1 percent.
And the clue that may help viewers solve the confusing brain teaser is linked to a famous internet meme.
The outline of Rick Astley’s head is hidden in a painting depicting a mountainous landscape.
Viewers can see Astley’s face if they tilt their heads.
And the image of a house turns into the singer’s jacket.
TikToker Hectic Nick said, “Once you’ve seen it, you can’t take it back.”
He used Astley’s famous 1987 track Never Gonna Give You Up as backing music for his clip – a prank known as Rick Rolling.
Pranksters would post links on social media sites and users would be directed to the music video.
It has been viewed 1.2 billion times on YouTube since it was uploaded 12 years ago.
Dozens of TikTokers have slammed Hectic Nick for rickrolling them.
One said: “Bro you rickrolled me.”
Another commented: “I just got rickrolled by a picture.”
And a third said: “You just got Rickrolled.”
However, some were less than impressed as they claimed they knew what was to come.
Skeptical social media users said they could see what lies within the illusion without turning their heads.
Meanwhile, others claimed to have spotted the wizard Harry Potter in the illusion.
And some said they could only see one man in the painting.
In December 2021, Astley revealed the moment he was Rickrolled.
He told Fox News: “A friend of mine ‘rickrolled’ me before I even knew what it was.
“He had to do it a few times because I didn’t know what he was doing. I’m just like, ‘Why is he sending me this?’ And suddenly my video appears. So I kept asking myself, ‘What’s he doing?’”
The singer revealed that his friend in California had to explain the meme to him.
Astley initially thought the prank was “really funny,” but has since had revenge.
He said: “People all over the world know it. It’s not just an American thing anymore, even if it’s very American.”
And a playing card optical illusion has social media users spinning when they spot the obvious feature.
Although many decks of cards have been used for years, many people are puzzled by the design of one of the cards.
The space between the diamonds on the eight card resembles the number itself.
