  1. Didn’t quite stand on my head, I got the image onto my computer and flipped it, and you can see that the jaw and eyes are upside down or he is about to fall apart into a million pieces and reveal in his place a very angry inhuman being that is about to tear apart anything nearby. I think the former is unlikely and the latter is a result of flip of these features. When seen upside down the person looks happy and fine, more likely then not the features are flipped from the start via some sort of editing or this guy had been in extruciating pain at the time.

  2. Holy crap! The guy looks like an insane megalomaniac about to tear you to pieces and destroy the world. Almost like Bush/Chaney.

  3. i flipped over on my chair, fell onto the ground, cursed the evil little man, the chair, the hard ground, my stupid little head, then tried again :D. I fell over again… then cursed everything all over agiain… then finally suceeded and fell over because i was so surprised at the evilness, and this time i didnt even bother cursing, i just punched the monitor. BIG MISTAKE, i ended up sucking on my fist and mumbling curses for 5 minutes :D!! whew….

  4. I agree with Anthony and Jibby. THIS GUY IS WACK!!! But it is just computer animated…..or is it…….ugh!! I’m creeping myself out!!!

  5. Again it’s because our brain perceives faces in a special way. Like, babies at first can only focus on the eyes. There is a condition that destroys your hability to recognize faces. It’s called “prosopognosy” i think (can’t spell it in English)

  6. While the whole picture is flipped upside down, I think his eyes are right-side-up. I wonder why no one else has noticed that.

    I think his mouth is the same way, too.

  7. omg. hey!!! thats my friends grandfater!!! he never did get a job…wonder why and who would post him on. my friend is probably imbarrassed!! i feel her pain!!! lol…..

  8. scary illusion! maybe those kids outside are wondering why i was standing on my chair letting my head hang down this way… whatever, cool thing, this pic

  9. these people are called prosopagnosiacs and the disease is called pagnosia, has to do with receptors int he brain not functioning to be abe to recognize certain characteristics and rember them as ppls faces

  10. this isn’t an illusion, this guy actually has a rare disease called thisreallyisanillusionia that makes his face look normal upside down and scare the crap out of people and make them curse their chairs normally.

  11. thats just plain creepy. it dosnt matter if ur up side down, rightside up, sideways, or backwords. its still creepy.

    my name is abigail, not anonymous!

  12. His mouth and eyes are “pasted” right side up when they should be upside down like the rest of the picture. I could see that right away. I don’t get what the illusion is supposed to be…

  13. Before I look at illusions, I look at the comments. Well, they weren’t that pleasant so I asked my dad to look at it then he laughed and then he said it wasn’t scary then he left. I went as far as I could from the computer, then looked at it upside-down. Well it’s not that scary if you’re far away!

  14. i didnt have to stand on my head to realize his mouth was upside down but for me the question is , are his eyes upside down to come on look at them they could be

  15. everything is upside down, and when i turned it right it creeped me out
    Ive never really been fond of the Scheibe Illusion…

  16. Looks like the human eye and/or brain can’t distinguish when a mouth is upside down or right way up. Simple yet effective.

    1. im eight and im too scared to go anywhere myself for a WEEK after i look at him upside down!!!! FYI i post my middle name as my name ;)

  17. as soon as i looked at him upsidedown and rightside up i noticed: he is freaking creepy and almost all his facial features are upside down. one more word to the face upsidedown: CREEEEEPY!!!

  18. JESUS. Why is it so creepy? I don’t think it’s the face itself; the changes are small and simple. Is it in realising that you thought something so OFF was perfectly fine?

    1. im only eight and this freaked the poop out of me… btw i can do a headstand :D CREEPY !!!
