A stunning video on TikTok causes viewers to hear a sound that isn’t really there.
Even with the volume turned down, viewers say they can hear – and feel – something that isn’t actually happening.
Florida influencer Lexi Natoli shared the optical illusion clip on TikTok in January, calling it “stunning.”
“This illusion lets you hear things that aren’t actually there,” she said.
Footage behind her shows a line of power lines with four transmission towers visible.
The footage has been animated to make it appear as if two of the transmission towers are swinging the lines like skipping ropes.
One of the towers in the middle appears to be jumping over the skipping ropes.
Notably, the video vibrates every time it lands.
“This video doesn’t actually have audio, but people claim to hear a thumping sound when this thing hits the ground,” Lexi said.
She even urged viewers to watch her video again with the sound off to prove there is no actual noise.
The video has earned over a quarter of a million likes and countless commenters are amazed.
“I put my phone on a table, away from me [and] I can still hear it,” wrote one.
“OMG you are right,” wrote another.
A few more said they not only heard a sound but also felt the impact of the tower landing.
“I can hear it and feel it at the same time,” said one.
“Our brain thinks we can hear it or feel it,” added another.
