Remember when South Park was in its very beginning? I remember there was this crazy dude character named Towelie, who was in fact a speaking towel whose only interest was getting stoned (?!). Hilarious! If my memory serves me well, he was a result of a terrible army experiment gone wrong. Dunno why this animation below made me remember of Towelie, but I think it has something to do with that tune “Won’t ya get me down, to funky town” he sang all the time. Anyhow, concentrate on the red dot in the middle of the .gif below, wait for the counter to drop to zero, and watch the black and white town turn colorful without consuming any illegal substances! Drugs are bad, illusions are awesome!

  2. skylark says:

    It is similar to a power satation chase scene in a bat-man film or carnival train illusion

    Cool, pity it only lasts a second.

  4. NeeL says:

    The colors (added by my mind) reminds me of my nieces sidewalk chalk colors. :)

    Anyway, nice illusion!

  5. Rickford says:

    I’m not sure it is working right. I could see the colors changing out of the corner of my eye with only part of the illusion showing on my home page.

  6. Totally WILD !!! That is great. Give me some more of that……….

  24. Kidsrock12347 says:

    i dont find it cool its kinda lame

  25. Asad says:

    I think it’s fake colors are changed by animation.

    See how?

    Scroll down 4 a while when town is black and white after 3 to 4 sex passed move scroll to upward you see colors.
    And when counting reaches 10 again scroll down and after 10-12 seconds of Tada move upward no colors.
    it means no illusion it’s just animation.


    All who say coll illusion are really dump.
    Bye bye bye
