With This Optical Illusion Even Celebrities can Look Fugly

TangenCognitionLab has posted a very interesting optical illusion video that can trick your mind into thinking that celebrities look like they got hit by every branch of the ugly tree, just like the rest of us poor common folk.  The illusion is based on the “Flashed Face Distortion Effect”, which you can read up on here.  I’m not one to dissect the science behind something, but I can tell you that the illusion works perfectly.  You’ll basically see caricatured versions of the celebs, which in fact makes them look like monsters and not the darlings that the world worships.  Check out the effect for yourself below.  You’ve always known that celebs could be ugly too, well that is if you use special effects…

Shocking illusion – Pretty celebrities turn ugly!
