Dancing Beetles Optical IllusionRifa Zulkaniao, a regular visitor of our site, saw this image where bunch of beetles dance around on a plain piece of paper. But wait! Look again, now down, now up again – what do you see? BEETLES NOW BECOME DIAMONDS… erm, I meant Mickey Mouse! Seems that Old Spice man completely destroyed my attention. Now when I look at it, I’m even more certain its not Mickey, but actually Minnie Mouse instead. What do you think?

Oh, and for those complaining how it would be much more effective checking the internet first, before asking a question, like I did in my previous post, I say to you – you’re partly right. But then I would miss the fun reading all your personal answers, comments and tips. Just an example: when I asked about Palau, one of the readers pointed how Palau deserves the title of second best scuba diving Islands on earth. That there are bunch of stoned people chewing Beatle nut all day, and how they don’t know they are ALL stoned because they all chew it (and spit orange blobs everywhere you go). This reader also pointed how they have a history of renting wives, daughters, sisters etc to the neighboring village for money to raise funds for the chiefs. That was in the old days…. and how they are still a nation of sleeping around with the neighbor’s wife… etc.

    Haha, pretty cool illusion. Have to admit it took me a moment of staring at it to see Mickey though

  2. Kathy says:

    Looks more like Mickey than Minnie. It has the trademark red shorts and yellow shoes. Minnie wears a dress and heels, and has a bow on her head.

  3. Jessica says:

    I see Mickey- that’s pretty cool!

  4. Lint_Licker says:

    I see Mickey Mouse.

  5. Voigt says:

    Not bad, but he’s missing his arms and the classic white golves. Where are the white beetles?

  6. Andy says:

    It took me a little while, but i think you were right the first time. Pretty sure its MICKEY. and now that I can see it, i looks really good on my widget.

  7. t says:

    Um… it’s Betel Nut… I don’t think John, Paul, George and Ringo can be chewed.

  8. patch says:

    OMG! your right I see it! LOL Kewl!

  9. Kelli says:

    I think it’s Mickey because Minnie would have a bow. It looks like Mickey wearing polka dots to me.

  10. ali says:

    Took me a minute but I see it. Definitely Mickey – Minnie has a hair bow and wears a dress. Mickey just wears shorts.

    Some image results to compare: http://www.google.ca/images?hl=en&safe=active&rlz=1G1GGLQ_ENCA319&biw=1680&bih=840&tbs=isch%3A1&sa=1&q=mickey+and+minnie+mouse&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=

  11. :) says:

    i think you can see it better if you squint then you can see minnie mouse better

  12. Brad says:

    I don’t get the illusion, explain it more:P btw loved hte old spice reference ^_^ heh

  13. Stephen says:

    It is Mickey Mouse, in a very classic pose. I have a sweatshirt with that design. Rather gross but cool.

  14. A Snail says:

    Took me ages to see it, even had to get a picture of Micky Mouse to compare it, and to work out the segnificance of the different coloured beetles.
    Minimouse always has a hear bow, so the picture could do with a butterfly to make it look like Mini mouse.

  15. TerryJW says:

    Sorry I really don’t get this one, can someone explain please?

  16. Annie Lautner says:

    I think it’s Mickey. But with the lady bug as the “shirt” we all know that Mickey only wears solid red pants and Minnie wears a poka dotted dress hence the ladybug. But there the mouse is doing the famous micky pose so it looks like a cross between Mickey and Minnie!

  17. Falon says:

    I’d say it is Minnie. ^^ Last time I checked, Mickey didn’t have red lips.

  18. RebekahCA says:

    I don’t see it

  19. Dave says:

    Took a while to even figure out what you were talking about. The dancing part messed me up, I thought I was looking for a movie.
    Anyway, upon further review, I can find Mickey Mouse in the image. Once I found the eyes, mouth and nose then it was no problem.

  20. I had to move back about two meters before I saw that one!

  21. Russell Bridge says:

    Oh, yeah, it took a minute, but I see Mickey Mouse. I’m not sure that I would have seen it without being told.

  22. jfrank7 says:

    i didnt get i look down and up back wards and up wards close and far i also turn my laptop but i still dont see the diamonds!

  23. OrangeGrove says:

    OMG lol this one took me awhile! I had to reread the post a few times before I saw Mickey Mouse LOL

  24. Durai says:

    I don’t get this one… am I missing something> all I see is beetles and a lady bug.

  25. Natalie says:

    I think it’s Mickey.
    Minnie has a bow in her hair and I see no bow.

  26. Fred says:

    An imaginative arrangement. Hope nobody gets sued over it.

  27. Rana says:

    HUH??? I don’t get it!!!

  28. Suzanne says:

    I SEE IT! Great illusion! Took me a while though.

  29. No one says:

    OH I LOVE THIS!!!!!!

  30. popesantaxiv says:

    What…I so don’t get this. I just see beetles and bugs…

  31. Daniela says:

    it is quite mickey at first but then y saw the mouth and I thought that.. mickey would seem very gay with color in his lips and eyelashes… anyway… it can be just his mouth doing :O ajaj
    Greetings from Chilee!!

    (I bet you have heard about Chile!! .. remembering you didn’t know about Palau xDD just kidding, I discovered that country two years ago playing geochallenge in facebook xDD)

  32. Lyzz Flatt says:

    While the spots do make it slightly confusing, the lack of a bow makes me certain this is supposed to be Mickey.

  33. fiona says:


  34. fiona says:

    NOW I DO;)

  35. Alberto Maria Franchi says:

    No doubt, it’s mickey!

  36. Cockney Cowboy says:

    Wow ! that took me a long time to see it.

  37. Jef says:

    Once I see it, now I can’t unsee it! Where’d the bugs go?

  38. zwerty says:

    I don’t get it. i couldn’t even see if it was minnie mouse or mickey mouse or diamonds or whatever, it was just some stuffed up beetles to me and a ladybug too.

  39. Bryce says:

    I looked at this a few times yesterday and absolutely could NOT see Mickey. Today I suddenly saw him and now it seems terribly obvious. Amazing!

  40. Johnny Jack Pompolla says:

    I can’t understand this one!

  41. sal says:

    oh wow that friggan sweet

  42. Beth Snyder says:

    It’s Mickey. Minnie wears a dress. It’s the beetles’ antennae and legs messing up the image that makes it look a little feminine.

  43. TerryJW says:

    Doh!,my Daughter has explained it now

  44. josephine says:

    I don’t see it…

  45. EDDIE says:

    If you see mickey or minnie are you have not been chewing beetle nut

  46. Care Bear says:

    I’ve seen these before–on my dishes–in Norfolk.

  47. benua says:

    Fantastic ! Someone know who’s the original creator of this image ?

  48. John Schnall says:

    Great illusion! At first look I couldn’t see it at all; now it’s obvious.

  49. Dan says:

    It’s Mickey if anything…Minnie didn’t were those colours…

  50. Brad says:

    Oh, wow, i can see itnow!:) YES :D I had to CTRL+Scroll out (Zoom out) to make hte image smalled and i saw the image of mickey mouse! – for those of oyu who haven’t seen it yet, its a full image of him standing up, the beetle on the far top right is his nose, and the big red beetle in the middle is his body.

  51. Latisha says:

    wow, that’s cute, I didn’t saw it until I read your description.

  52. William Lim 'Nkm' Rasaz says:

    yeah, thats minnie, mickey is not using lipstick

  53. DetectiveKitty says:

    This is a great illusion you really don’t notice it until it’s been pointed out. and then it’s the only thing in your head…

  54. Chelsea says:

    I had to walk 30 feet away from my computer before I saw it. Wow!

  55. Daron says:

    Did I just do that? Sorry, here’s the bow for Mini…


  56. Mayumie says:

    Cool! it look like mikey but wears lipstick?!

  57. SHYzone says:

    I see it it’s soooooo clever

  58. coolio says:

    DEFINITELY not minnie

  59. Moo Moo says:

    WOW, I have just got it but i deffinetly think its Mickey because of the colours and he is not wearing lipstick its his tongue because if you type into google ‘Mickey Mouse’ well on a lot of them he has his mouth open xxxx

  60. Rowdeycay says:

    There is NO debate here…Maybe some of you are too Young or too OLD to be the slighest bit familiar with MINNIE MOUSE…She wears LIPSTICK AND a pink bow in her hair,
    MYSTERY solved…Thanks


    One REAL MINNIE pic

  61. Rowdeycay says:

    OK so Minnie wears NO lipstick most of the time…The fact remains, Minnie nearly always has a red BOW in her hair.

  62. Rowdeycay says:

    Daren cheated and put another pic and made it Minnie with the bow. The original pic IS Micky.
    WE have BOTH, so Duhh….”nevermind…”

  63. Daniel says:

    That was hard to find! AWESOME ILLUSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
