If I told you that this guy’s cylinder is as wide as it is tall, would you think I was crazy? Well, as hard as it is to believe this, I am actually telling the truth. Use some kind of measuring software, and you’ll see the results for yourself. Mad Hatter has fooled us once again!

    How can it be! Thats strange…..

  • jonny

    Now this is a great illusion! Well done.

    “Use some kind of measuring software”

    What about just a ruler ;)?

  • mrmojorisingi

    wow, now that’s just false. i used a ruler and on my particular moniter the hat is 4.5 cm accross and 6 cm tall.

    not an illusion, only a fraud.

  • vurdlak

    you measured it wrong. (notice the thin lines above and below, and on the sides like this one: ………….. )

  • stink

    I would like to disagree with your wording the cylinder of the hat is not as wide as it is tall. the brim of the hat on the other hand is

  • Nancy

    Sorry mr mor – you need a lesson in measurements. They are equal.

  • its me

    it is true. i just measured it…………………………………………cool

  • PietreWitobi

    To be fair, his hat is as wide as it is tall. His cylinder is taller than it is wide.

  • Cuby

    Nice, gets me every time that one does!

  • ajslfjasl;j

    it only works if you include the rim of the hat…..LAME

    vurdlak: When you measure how tall a person is, do you stop at the shoulders? I’m with mrmojorisingi, this is just false.

  • MMM

    (*_*) what the?!

    Can’t understand…

    The explaination should read “the Hat (not the Cylinder) is as wide as it is tall.”

  • Bravery Onions

    Wow, that is just weird. I measured it, it’s 2.25 x 2.25 inches on my moniter.

    Witchcraft. Got to be. No other explanation. Simple as that. Your a brave website to be messing with the occult. occult, yakult… GEEPERS CREEPERS! They’re infultrating our supermarkets! Head for the hills ladies and gentlemen!

    some people are getting confused because vurdlack DIDN’T say the word “brim”. other peolpe have said this. it ONLY works counting the brim, as others said.
    vurdlack accidentally skipped saying “the [brim] of the hat is as wide as [the cylinder] is tall”
    He said ‘cylinder’ where I have ‘brim’ and ‘it’ where i have ‘the cylinder’.
    Nobody MEASURED WRONG, just were misunderstanding the error and/or measuring it the wrong way.
    no hard feelings vurdlack!

    Myself, I love this one every time.

    Actually if i am correct it is even… Maybe you just need a math lesson on how to use a ruler!

  • Vurdlak II

    mrmojorisingi you got it wrong

  • mr.E

    HIS COLLAR IS ALSO YELLOW if you look at it from the side, teven though it looks white…i just noticed that coincidentially.

  • **~**AAAQueen**~**

  • Anonymous

    Johnny Depp is the mad hatter, not this guy…….

  • water

  • Me

    It is mathameatically impossible. That illusion is soooooo freeaking false 1 star

  • TheFat Elf

    How Sad! You actually MEASURED?!!?!?!?! Jeez, guys! Can’t you just look at it, grunt in agreement and move on! Again, How very, very sad….

  • Pictureburner

    it’s cool

  • Me

    I think it’s just because the top of the hat is curved
