What do these two buses have in common except their front wheel is perfectly lined up? Nothing! Well actually everything since this is basically only one bus with smaller, green one painted on the bigger one. This magic trick is similar to previous “Plummer Illusion”.

    Why can’t people just accept this as creative and leave it alone? There is no need to make it seem stupid. It’s all in fun.

    Agree with Kevin. And I think is a wonderful idea to paint some old buses on the new ones to add some nostalgia and highlight the effort of the company to improve. Wow.

    Hey Tobe, Shut up. you’re saying that the wheels of the buses are painted on? both buses share the wheels of the white bus.

    Tobe you should take your own advice. That is a real bus with the green bus painted on it and there are many others like it. It is an advertising technique used to draw attention. A bus that large requires more than just four tires. If you are gonna be so rude you know what you are talking about. Do yourself and us a favor and get an education.
    By the way it’s pretty cool in my book. I don’t think it’s really meant to fool anyone just make you look twice. Why do people get so serious over how great each illusion is? There are more important things in life.

    Supplementing information:

    This is a double decker bus, which is very common in Hong Kong,(to be more exact, an air conditioned one, but we seldom see non-air cond’ed ones nowadays)
    the smaller one is a photo of a Public Light bus, a.k.a Mini bus, is a single deck Van type vehicle with a capacity of 16. They actually exist in HK, green mini buses have fixed routes and red ones(same appearance but painting is switched from green to red) have a more free lance route type. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_light_bus)

    I know most here cannot read Chinese characters, and this is a commercial saying “Reduced from a large bus to a mini bus”(large fonts on middle right) and the small fonts on the left says “Effective slim-bodying” and a company logo(with no name) next to it.(poor advertising since most will not be able to know what company it is) On the light bus, the Chinese words says Public Light Bus 16 seats as well.
