Not What You Originally Thought


Fresh optical illusions quickly become viral on the net. Seems internet audience is always thirsty for more, and this is why photo below (once it became popular), was submitted to my mail dozen of times. At first I didn’t see anything. Then I spotted what seemed to be not much of an illusion, but something more on the “offensive” side. I never even considered publishing this photo on Mighty Optical Illusions, until Jay Kleinrichert explained the secret. Boy was I mislead until that particular moment! This is truly a great find. Those of you who still don’t get it, be sure to check Dirty Minded Test – it might give you a clue. I won’t talk any further, chances are I could ruin the illusion for you accidentally.

Don't be shocked once you discover it, it's not what you think!

    the girl holding the camera has her arm positioned so it looks like the girls butt

  • DeathShavalaski

    wow that is really clever

  • Reader

    Unless people should find it straight away, it might be a good idea to change the description of the picture… it is basically pointing out the answer.

  • Jenna

    haha that’s actually really sneaky :O

  • Yannick

    The girl in the back is half naked???

  • mist

    nice ass…
    oh its the arm of the girl with the camera


    Lmao great one. I took a picture on my friends phone of the same thing so he would see it and think it was an ass and when he was looking through his pics he was like “WTF ‘n’ hell is this?” it was funny because I have hair popping out of that region.


    Damn, got my hopes up.

  • That made me lol, hard! haha

  • BraDRoBBo

    aaahahahahahahaha!! Its her arm!!! OH SHI!!! I.. Yes! LmfaO – nice one!!!

  • chipmunk34

    very clever, wonder what the photographer thought…

  • whiskey

    once again vurdlak, whether by accident or on purpose you have managed to give it away by the tag on the photo, in other news, what an illusion, i near laughed by head off

  • This is hilarious!!

  • David Plane

    This is one of the funniest and most shocking illusion I have ever seen xD

  • Cley Faye

    oh wow, dat a… wait ?

  • Tetzmol

    The girl in the background probably had no time to put on her panties. I hope it wasn’t too cold in the room.

  • Matteo

    Ahahahahah the arm-ass..hihiihihi

  • Xaver

    :D that’s really funny! At first I thought you can see the ass of the girl in the background!

  • Tetzmol

    Ofcourse these aren’t the girls buns. It’s the shoulder and armpit of the photographer which creates an illusion for all dirty minded amongst us.

  • Peppy

    Ultimate illusion mate ! noticed the “offensive thing ” and the “solution” in just a minute ….

  • Katie

    Well I obviously have a dirty mind! lol Very cool illusion and super obvious once you figure it out.

  • fairanrein

    In one of Spanish TV´s, there is a part of a show -named El Hormiguero-, whose slogan is: “Ass or elbow?”…perhaps, armpit?

  • Tim

    Oh, took me a while to realize that was white-t-shirt-girl’s elbow. lol

  • Sama

    ahahaha i get it,
    the woman in the back has a pink dress on,
    but it looks like you see her butt, but it’s the armpit of the girl in front of her

  • Mika

    Well, I just don’t get it…

    Is the illusion, that the mother’s arms could be the girls bum?

  • Ellis

    Haha is funny because elbow looks like bottom!

  • Ellis


  • Gogu Escu

    I took me some time and then I got it. As a clue, the foot of the naked girl looks a bit misplaced.

  • Mendosa

    Ha Ha

  • Z3nder

    Lol! Butt naked :D

  • gabal

    But is it an intentional illusion or a staged one?

  • YES!

    That is so funny!

  • Pyro


  • jack

    lol its just the curve in her rm it took me a w hile

  • Suicidal ‘Ling

    Haha! I see it!

  • sebastien

  • Cassandra

    Took me a while but once i read the discription on the top it gave ma a good idea… I found it two seconds later

  • barth

    I see the shoulder of the right girl in front seem to make the buttock of rear girl.

    (sorry for my english, i’m french and first on this post)

  • G

    hahahahaha That’s funny

  • naples00

    The shoulder of the right girl seems to be the rear girl “bottom”… :D

  • Banksy

    ah i think i saw it :P. i see wat ur talking about. even after i saw it i cudnt really think of it as what it truly is and kept seeing what i thought was there. or maybe what i wanted to be there :\

  • Sergio

    hahaha…coooooool (dirty, but def. cool)

  • Not sure… At first I thought the girl in the background stood on the bed in her naked a**, but it appeared to be the armpit of the girl taking the picture. Is that the illusion???

  • Lain

    You mean how a shoulder looks like a butt? Eh.

    And those are some pretty average looking girls.

  • Care Bear

    Nicely done. The reality? People see what they want to see. I’m a leg person myself.

  • Danieljgonz

    OMG That ass!!! Or an armpit??? LOL!!!!! Awesome dude!!

  • DJ

    you might want to know the name of the picture is a dead give away (it shows up on mouseover)

    good illusion tho

  • Samuel Norbury

    I uhhhhh…. don’t see- !!!

    Thats crazy at first i couldn’t see it, but then i did. It is weird though i think.

  • fire

    good pic¡¡¡

  • Better

    I think the better optical illusion is how the older lady in the back has a baby size arm, hand and fingers.

  • Facebook User


  • SP

    So I’ll just take all three… Along with that cute lil armpit ass… ;P

  • Ashe

    the woman holding the camera, look at at crotch o.o

  • Jack

    Imagine if the girl with the camera didn’t shave her pits…too funny. I love this site.

  • gennia11

    i dont get it. is it just that they are facing a mirror?

  • gennia11

    oh so it was the butt……………nice

  • Dave

    Vurdlak, I really like your site and your optical illusions, etc.

    But I am a business professional that works with minors. If illusions like this show up in my widget, I am in a way helping to distribute questionable content to minors. I appear to endorse the content by having it on my page, which is VERY bad for my job.

    So I am respectfully requesting that you please reduce/eliminate this type of content, or post it in such a way that it is optional, not delivered to every widget.
    I really don’t want to have to get rid of my widget, but if this keeps happening, I don’t see any other choice.
    Again, I do appreciate your site and the work you do. I enjoy it, and hope I can continue to be a part.

  • John

    Honestly, I thought it was supposed to be an illusion of it supposedly being a mirror. but its just a door way. i never noticed the ass arm thing, till u mentioned it in the comments

  • I saw the butt/arm pitt, but why does the girl in front have a camel toe???? eeeew.

  • kaila

    Lain dont hate there just girls who came up with this hilarious illusion be jealous lol

  • Chris Granger

    i was looking at the massive camel toe on the blondie with blue shorts!

  • r

    Those who saw the butt first, were really dirty minded
    ha ha ha!!!

  • Pete

    @ Dave, You really need to get a life. This is no way questionable content, after all it’s only an armpit, It is the viewers mind that turns it in to something it isn’t. This is a great clean site and a comment like yours makes me sad. Your moaning for moaning sake, I for one would not mind if you delete your widget, you don’t deserve the pleasure of free daily illusions.

  • hahaha.. very nice.. At first, I was trying to figure out why it’s not a “mirror”, till i spotted the butt.. it took a few seconds to realize it was the girls arm..

  • Detective Kitty

    omg I thought that it was a you know what at first but I figured it out…

  • SP

    @Dave, I second Pete’s comments. Nobody is forcing you to keep anything on your desktop. It’s ppl like you who who keep this country close minded and frowned upon.

  • duncan

    That’s the prettiest armpit I’ve ever seen.

  • Atters

    Is it the Camel Toe in the foreground?

    • Anonimous

      nice call on the camel toe XD

  • Mr. G


    On behalf of other readers of this site I would like to apologize. You explained your situation, made a respectful request and left it up to the blog author to consider it.

    Its too bad some idiots see it this way:

    SP. Learn to recognize a respectful request. Sheesh….

  • Buahuhauhuahua…. ma è bellissimoooooooo, veramente sembra quello che non è!!!

  • Photo angle can mean everything in a picture lol

  • Dale Alberto

    ummm i forgot the name of the owner of this site
    so anyways (owner of this site) u might want to nor write down the illusion on the site itself:D
    so i clicked the picture and i never figured out the illusion until i saw the writing on the top of my window.:(
    nice illusion btw
    it totally fooled me

  • Anonymous

    Nah, it didn’t look like a butt at all. Maybe if the armpit line went right upto the “edge” of the other girl’s skirt, then it would look like her skirt is covering a part of her butt.

    Otherwise her “butt” obviously looks too small and too low as compared to the rest of her body. Guys who saw a butt here have probably never seen a woman’s butt. Pull down your wife’s panty. As for girls, use a mirror. LOL.

  • dude it was the ladys arm omg lol

  • yakupcan

    that is aweesom

  • wala

    ooo its da girls arm… ROFL!!!

  • wawa

    The optical illusion is that the leggins of that girl went into her pussy

  • Bad Angel

    i was very horrified at first, i mean WTF??! but then i realised that the girl with the camera doesnt hv a shoulder. Really funny!

  • lalalal

    It is TOO a mirrior dummies! Why would the woman be putting on make up into a hall way!? And why would someone take a picture of someone taking a picture? I get it for those of u who don’t.

  • lalalal

    BTW The girl whose butt looks like its showong….. her yellow and pink panties are on the bed to the left of the picture :) GROSS!

  • pervert

    i would like to stick my thing in that

  • !!me!!

    it is so easy people!
    if you look at the
    girls arm,it looks
    like a ….well
    you know what i

  • Special ED

    I see it..

  • nasty girl

    omg that is cool

  • Whoa

    Geez, I am surprised so many people saw a butt there. Looks like they have never seen a woman’s butt before. It isn’t particularly hard to get an opportunity to see a woman without her panty on. I am sure a lot of men must have seen my butt, when I did not have my panty on.

  • LMAO funny LOL

  • Norah

    I love it!

    • Kat

      So do I! Im a girl so I saw it as an arm straight away!

    • jack bowden

      hahaah thats awesome

  • swim

    the girl in back isnt wearing pants

    • haley

      yes she is wearing pants it is the lady who is taking the picture’s arm

  • Kate

    No… the thing you are seeing as the girl’s but is actually the girl in the white shirt’s arm

  • wtf

    thats cool

  • Elliot

    haha funny as…

  • Taylor-Paige

    this is wrong in the mirror it shows that the girl in the grey is standing in front of the girl in the white shirt but in the real bit(real bit is outside of the mirror)there is nothing in front of the camera just the mirror

  • Awesome Anonymous

    if you scroll over the picture it usually gives it away

  • judge dredd

  • somebody

    the girl in the pink shirt looks like she isnt wearing knikers but her bum also looks like the girl taking the photos arm

  • Mii

  • Grace

    It looks like the girl is flashing….. but it’s the girl’s arm. That is awesome :) Really like it!

  • Nightmeare

  • lisa

  • tooom

    anyone else noticing the HUGE camel toe on the girl with the white shirt?

    • chessalands

      Bahah nice.

    • camel toe

      that’s what i originally saw was the huge toe! too funny

  • IllusionSolution

    SOOO tricky. Its funny, But you can see the girls are taking pictures and looking at the mirror, but this is fake! If you look ALL around the room, you’ll see the mirror is in the other side.

  • WP

    It actually took me a while to see it the “wrong” way.

  • Cheadle

    Love it!

  • Ryanna

    the girls elbow makes it look like shes not wearing pants

  • Harout

    woah! I was Amazed after figuring the illusion , it is the girl’s arm with the camera

  • notarealname

    its a faint thing to see but its her arm not a butt

  • Kurwynd

    If you look at this photo closely, you will see that the picture taken by the girl with the camera is not the picture you are looking at. It is pointed down and to the side which would give you a totally different view. There is another photographer not shown in the picture who is lining up this shot. Nice work btw :)
