Alex Brozyna wasn’t sure if we already saw this photo, so just in case, she decided to share her copy with us. It takes a moment or two, before you realize what is going on here. It looks as if the man has jumped into a swimming pool, but on a closer inspection you’ll realize this isn’t a pool, rather a desktop computer screen. I’m not definitely sure where monitor becomes pool, and pool transforms into monitor, supposedly there is a swimming pool present at all! Probably this poster was created for a monitor manufacturer. Have you seen it before? If so, which brand did it advertise?


  • BenJamin

    that is definitely a mac mouse and keyboard. overall it is a pretty cool illusion but it looks very much so photoshopped

  • drew

    Digital Swimming Pool:

    Judging by the mouse and keyboard…I’d have to say that was an Apple advertisement. Probably photoshop’d, look at his trajectory, he’s clearing more than 1/2 that pool, could be a tragic ending for our diver.

  • Jet sip et

    This is part of an advertisement for Samsung monitors.


  • I am not quite sure which monitor it advertised, but tis true i’ve seen it.

  • Colin

    Definitely a Mac monitor given the keyboard and mouse is Mac.

    FIRST xD

  • BG

    The mouse and keyboard are a Mac.

  • Maria

    It might be apple, because the keyboard and mouse are distinctly apple.

  • dude

    Judging by the keyboard and mouse. I’d say it’s a Mac.

  • eyyy

    I think it’s advertising MAC because there is a mac keyboard. love the site!!

  • Kholto

    I am pretty sure that all we see is monitor, It seems to completely cover the pool. Its a pretty cool illusion ad.

  • ” T “

    That is an extremely nice posture for diving.

    By the way, this illusion is very creative!

  • It’s not actually the computer its the screen which is the pool and it has the holding thingy,its dell!!!!,Btw first postXD

  • hah funny

  • me

    Looking at the mouse and keyboard says it’s a mac computer.

  • popesantaxiv

    Oh, that’s neat. I like the mouse though. =)

  • Detective Kitty

    for me when I see the stand of the screen that’s when the picture reverts into a monitor, if i ignore the screen it looks like a swimming pool.

  • Tripudelops

    not sure if there is a swimming pool, but the poster is definitely for a mac. i recognize the keyboard. its an older model.

    Still, if there is a pool there, it fooled me!

  • sophia


  • Kate

    Brilliant! I haven’t seen it before.

  • Delishia Harding


  • Cute kitten

    u cen tell this looks soo fake

  • Chris

    I think the monitor eclipses the pool

  • Heyhey didnt know wad to put as my name…

    If youjust focus on the screen and the upper border, its a pool. Stare at the lower border, its a monitor

  • David

    The keyboard and mouse really look like apple products, which would make this an add for an iMAC, but I’ve never seen an iMAC like this one.

  • Rebecca

    that is really cool! perhaps the monitor covers up the pool or the diver was photoshopped in. still, gread idea and execution!

  • Chakolate

    If it’s not shopped, then the monitor is inside, and the guy is outside diving into a pool, and the pool is below/behind the monitor.

    Did I get it right?

  • alijaya

    i think…
    it’s monitor turn into swimming pool
    See the edge off the table… if it’s a pool, it must be behind the table…
    and i think the monitor is apple… *look at the mouse

  • Steven8612

    Looks like Sony to me

  • Ron

    The mouse and keyboard are Apple products – I don’t recognize the monitor base, but it is probably some incarnation of an iMac.

    The monitor is positioned to cover the outside swimming pool. A clever photo.

    thanks for sharing.

  • Pineapplez x3

    I haven’t seen this advertisement yet, but I love it xD
    Wouldn’t it hurt if there was no pool behind the screen, and he’s diving too?

  • Victor

    He is actually diving into a pool. It is blocked by the monitor indoor.

  • Kaytlynne

    Well, I’ve never seen this picture before, but the keyboard and mouse look like that of a Mac computer.

  • Minh

    been watching all of illusions lately . Keep good stuffs coming ! And happy new year !

  • anonymous

    i don’t remember seeing it, but it’s very, very good!

  • Deets

    I think it may be mac, i recognize the mouse and keyboard

  • Andrew

    well the mouse and keyboard are Macs but im not sure about the monitor

  • Melissa Burbey


  • r

    there isn’t a monitor at all!

  • comon sense guru

    its obvious once you look at it for a while, there is a pool the an is diving in but is hidden by the computer screen
    the screen is real because there is a shadow at the bottom of the picture

  • Ice

    i think the monitor is covering up all of the pool – they just cleverly aligned it all well…Great photography composition!

  • Tin Soldier

    That’s an Apple keyboard and Mouse, but does not look like an apple monitor.

  • Nancy

    It is a Samsung if you click the link above around the thrid post it shows the ad by Samsung. There is a pool that makes it look like he is diving into the monitor. Great picture. The ad is for the flat screen touch. They have touch screen lap tops that flip like this to make them touch. Very cool illusion.

  • Puppy love

    I know what it is its a computer screen bent really downwards and a man outside the window jumping into a swimming pool put its actaully a man jupming into a computer screen!! lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :p :))
    LOL: laugh out loud

  • presley

    if you look in the back ground there is poolside chairs meaning that there might be a pool outside since there is a diving board

  • Wise Person

    This a 2000 Mac Mini add for a package deal with the samsung monitor, in fact it was Christmas 2000, what else from a long tome mac fan/user.

  • debolina

    good one

  • gennia11

    it doesnt matter what kind of computer it is! >:o
    i just know its an awesome illusion! x)

  • Annette

    Good points, I think I will definitely subscribe!:). I’ll go and read some more!

  • Mystique

    It is NOT photoshopped, for you idiots who think it appears so.

    Just cleverly placed.

  • tinkerer

    yah, I agree (without the idiot remark)it looks to me as if the water is just very still.

  • tinkerer

    never mind, i took a second look at it, it does look quite odd to be water…………cool

  • sis

    it’s an ACER advertise ^^, ” ACER, where is you’re life headed” the rest of the video is so that the screen also becomes a trampoline and then a guy picks it up and sets it into normal posture, and starts the computer

  • Dolphin

    It’s an okay illusion,It’s just the computer is really obvious that it’s only a tipped back monitor.

  • Sophie

    It looks like he is jumping into the computer screen!

  • LeW-idea

    I think that’s only a ‘mini man’as big as ballpoint which jumping to the monitor

  • LeW-idea

    I think that’s only a ‘mini man’which as big as ballpoint which jumping to the monitor

  • Tho

    The person is probably jumping into a pool that is behind the monitor. The monitor is probably also tilted back so that you wouldn’t see any of the pool!

    Nice illusion!

  • Liquid Vitamin :

    at home we have a kidney-shaped swimming pool that is well maintained, i love swimming on it all day long “
