Absolut Thessaloniki Illusion

/

Suicico, one of our forum moderators, submitted this cool illusion. Here’s what he said: “The following image is an advert made for Absolut vodka. What is wonderfull here, is that nothing was manipulated on following photo. It is a well known place in Thessaloniki, Greece – it’s called Aristotelous Square. And the most cool part is that this is where my home is (kind of …)”

  • Kostas

    yes, it’s true! i live in thessaloniki and i was fascinated at how aristotelous square looks so much like the absolut bottle when seen from above! Pretty cool marketing there, absolut! :-)

  • Kyle

    Woah that really is awesome…. I wonder if they had anything of the sort in mind when the architects mapped out the square:P

  • glen

  • sharad

    its a beautiful place for sure. its built in such a way that it mimcs a door (with a arch on top). the lightings in bulidings is in such a way that it creates shadow effect ie some building have yelllow and some blue/white (though not exactly right)
    and another good thing is iam the first one to respond!

    How about not being too picky and taking it for what it is – a cool coincidence.

  • Pościel Wełniana

    Really nice

  • Krishnan

    Yes, even I thought its a door of a very big building and the photograph is taken from the water level. Only later I realised that its an aerial shot! Somehow the 3D structures (of the buildings) were not instantly visible in the small sized photograph and hence probably I felt its a big door.

    I love this site. Keep up it.

    thanks,
