Well, we have to say that when it comes to drinking and vodka, Russians are the best. If you ever tried some Russian vodka, you know that it’s one of a kind. So, what does this have to do with today’s visual optical illusion? Have a look at it and let us know what you think!
What to see?
At first, you have the impression that there’s nothing to see, other than two Russian soldiers. The writing doesn’t seem to make any sense because Cyrillic lettering is used, right? So, why then, if you look closely at what’s written below, you see that it says “Russian Bear – Please drink responsibly not for sale to persons under 18”? It really doesn’t make any sense, until…you see the trick, and you find yourself facing a really cool visual optical illusion – if we can call it like that.
How it works?
First of all, you need to know a bit about this poster. It’s a poster that was used for pub toilets, and it was placed in front of the mirror. And when you look at it from the mirror when you’re washing your hands after you did your “duty”, things look differently:
How about that? It actually says in reverse that real men don’t drink and drive. Makes sense…as you pass it, you say “hey, look a Russian poster” but when you’re washing your hands, the message seems to haunt you, and the weird lettering seems to make a lot more sense all of a sudden! Brilliant, isn’t it?
