# The Missing Brick Optical Illusion

How are all of you doing out there today? It’s Thursday, so I bet a lot of your are pumped up, because tomorrow it’s Friday. After tomorrow, you get to sit back, relax and enjoy some of the optical illusions I’m going to be posting up on the site from the comfort of your own home, instead of at the desk at your office! Today I have a brain teaser optical illusion that I bet all of you are going to fall in love with. This particular one is known as the “missing brick optical illusion.” Basically, as you’ll see in the image below, there’s a hole in the wall where a brick used to be and a brick is on the sidewalk. It’s your job to figure out whether or not that brick is the same size as the empty space in the wall. Would it fill that space perfectly? Is the brick too big? Too small? Scroll down to see what you think!

So, what do you think? Would the brick fit in the wall or do you think it’s too big? Maybe it’s too small? Either way, you should leave your guess in the comments section below and let us know what you think. Also, make sure you share this with your friends, as I’m sure it will definitely toy with their brain, as well. If you liked this optical illusion, you can rate it by clicking on one of the stars below to let us know what you think. I greatly value your feedback.

The brick on the sidewalk is to big for the hole.

2. Dwight says:

It is still to big for the hole unless you place it on end and then there will be huge gaps.

The brick on the ground is obviously just spray paint. As for the wall the same. All they did was spray paint a reasonable size of the wall to be considered a brick black.
