Bose Optical Illusion Billboards


Thank you David and Xavier for sending me these most recent optical illusions. As we see, Bose has created some pretty neat optical illusion ads. Bose is a world famous company that sells higher end Hi-Fi audio devices, and this is why they used few of the most famous musicians in their campaign. If you look more closely, you will see that all of the faces were created from audio components and Hi-Fi parts. I bet Bose had great dose of inspiration from Harley Davidson’s Motorbike Faces and ClubMed. The author behind this creative idea was Nirmalya Chakraborty. Can you recognize all of the celebrities in this collection? Which one is your favorite? I like Elvis the most :)

    Actually, these are kinda lame. They would be much more impressive if they were comprised of actual electronic components, instead of vector renderings.

    i think the second guy is Indian singer Kishore Kumar. Makes sense because Bose was founded by an Indian guy, and the author of the illusion is Indian too

  • soenita

    These aren’t really optical illusions!
    This is like calling a brick house an illusion, because it’s made with smaller pieces.

    Pretty sure the third is Madonna – not Marilyn – it’s the shot from her “True Blue” album cover.

  • Christopher Allman

    these are kind of cool, but i don’t see what makes them an optical illusion. what is the illusion? it is clear the portraits are composed of hifi parts.

  • Kolko

    The last one is Jim Morrison, I am sure of it

  • The Wonderful Mr. Tongue

    You’re right, there’s no illusion, Christopher. They’re just nifty pictures, albeit shown here under a misleading header.

  • bianca

  • Anoop

    #2 is Kishore Kumar from India. Though Bose is an American company, it was founded by the son of an Indian Immigrant who came to the states in the 1920s. Amar Bose is the founder of Bose. Thus Kishore Kumar is on the list.

  • Alex

    Hover over them and it says their names..

    1. Elvis
    2. Kishore

    Who’s Kishore, I reckon #2 looks a lot like Little Richard, when he was young.
