This one was submitted by user called Sergio, and the image is originally created by CoolOpticalIllusions. Apparently, if you focus your eyes on this image for minute or so, and then look away and starre at the sheet of paper or some other white surface, you’ll see Santa Claus, wearing his usual red cloathes and white beard. Try it and feel free to post if it worked for you aswell as it did for me! The principle is the same as “American Flag Illusion”, “Jesus Illusion”, “Batman Logo”


  • maddy

    sorry but the illusion wasnt that mind-boggling. tho it did form a faint outline of the red santa!

  • Lizzy

    That’s amazing. it really works!!!! All of these are amazing!! Where do you find these?

  • Cabal

    Didn’t work for me :(

    Not even a blurry out-focused red stain. I guess my eyes don’t work with blue negative pictures.

    Black and white, tho, is a must :)

  • Farted

    I can’t see it!

  • Siobhan

    Ye…doesnt work…put better..more freaky ones up…like that jesus one

  • Sparkle

    it didnt work for me either . But i think it was because we did the others first.. Maybe my brain got tired ?..

  • Brittany

    didnt work for me all I saw was a red square???

  • basketball_playHER

    NOPE, IT DIDN’T WORK FOR ME… I DIDN’T SEE ANYTHING AFTER I LOOKED AWAY… O WEL, MAYBE MY EYES AREN’T GOOD WITH THESE COLORS OR SOMETHING

  • rotkva

    you need to stare at that one dot above his glasses ( the one where is he holds the glasses )
    then it will work!

  • tom

    There is an eye on his nose.

  • nobody

    all i saw was a faint outline of the santa

  • Honeybee

    You can see it even better when you keep blinking,
    even though that’s quite hard :p

  • greendayfanatic!

    But if you copy the picture and paste it into paint then go to image > invert colors it shows the picture the way you should see it on the wall.

    I love this!
    I kept on blinking while staring at a paper and it kept on growing…

  • Jenny

    so technically, wouldnt this trick work with any negative shape or most images? interesting how the eye works.

  • Anonymous

    goSh im ScareD GRRRR.but it does’nt work..

  • Matt

    I did see a faint red outline but something more interesting caught my eye. When I started to look at the negative image, I widened my eyes a little and sort of focused slightly away from the image, but could still see it if you know what I mean. Then i saw what appeared to be a very menacing man with evil eyes staring up towards the camera. Its complicated but basically santas glove became the mans shoulder and arm, and santas eyes were the mans eyes, because his head was at an odd angle. Sorry for the long comment but it was weird

    All i saw was bob barker from “price is right” and a mixture of David Spade And K-fed and maybe a bit of the kid in the middle from the “Chapman’s Icecream” container. Oh yah i almost forgot it sorta had the face of one of the kids from “The Brady Bunch”

    If you keep your eyes closed the image will start to slowly form.

    the reason that you see red is because if you invert the colours, turquoise = red, and black = white, and when you stare at something, then you look at a piece of paper, the colours invert into the right colour (which is red and white of santa claus)

  • Jimmy

    Didn’t work :(

    Hey you have to stare at the picture for 30 minutes and look at a white wall and YOU’LL SEE HIM IN COLOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Michele

    I did not see it. Cool picture anyway. I find that if I stare at the picture long enough then I can see Santa in his red outfit without having to stare at a white sheet of paper.
