Spot The Baked Bean Man


Steve Speirs felt creative, and liked our Hidden Coffee Bean Man so much, that he decided to create similar illusion of his own. Below you should be able to spot the hidden face, don’t ask me – I haven’t spotted it yet. Maybe it was just a hoax, like those Ninja submission. Can anyone solve this one? Last time I had such a problem spotting the illusion, was with that baby illusion. This is what Steve wrote on his blog: “I loved the coffee bean you featured on your site last year. Decided to come up with my own version of the effect. What do you think? Is it possible to add it to your site? Thanks and keep up the good work!” Can this post beat the famous “Hidden Tiger“?

    i think his eye is in the middle bottom of the picture and his nose is slightly below and to the right of his eye (his nose is a bean)

  • Anonymous

    Found it!!!

    Spoiler alert:
    Top left corner…come down about 2 beans and over to the right about 3 or 4 beans…the face is very faint and laying at about a 45 degree angle…

  • Ryan

    I think I’ve found it, but I’ve also found a disturbing white alien shape type face too.. Every time I look at the picture, my focus is drawn to that…
    Anyway, the face I see that I think is the one we’re looking for, is in the top left quarter of the picture.

    I’m very nearly convinced that Steve is having a laugh at all the folks that are sitting around staring at this pile of baked beans…. I see no face, no man…. just beans.

    Someone, prove me wrong! I would have sworn there was no other tiger in the Hidden Tiger image as well, so I may very well be missing something simple – or, again, maybe Steve’s off sipping his coffee and having a bit of a laugh at my expense.

  • Peter

    Found it, but only after comparing it to the original stock footage image on Sneaky and much less obvious than the coffee bean guy.

    i think it is in a glare 3rd bean from the left its very small

  • Neat-Nit

    I can’t find it. and I loved the hidden tiger one XD

  • Finders Keepers

    It’s in the upper left quadrant and very faint, about 3 beans down and 3 beans over. In his blog he has a link to the pic he used, it makes it easier to find it

    Took a minute but there he is… much more difficult to see than coffee bean man, as this bean man is actually one of the beans… I thought there were a few in this picture, until I found the real one…very good!!!

  • Zack

    wow this is a really hard one, it is hidden well..a clue, the face is NOT as clear as in the coffee bean illusion, it’s been photoshopped to look like an actual bean, not just a clear face.(a reflection is over his nose too.)

  • Adrian

    Nooo he’s there. It’s not done as clearly as the coffee bean illusion.

    You’ll have to visit his site for the solution, (it’s on the picture)

    I think I see a stick figure bean man. If so, his head is the bean near the top middle(a bit to the left).

  • Anonymous

    I think I found it

  • Jandals

    Wow, that one’s a lot harder to spot than the coffee bean illusion. It’s really not clear enough to be convincing. Even though I can see eyes, mouth and nasolabial folds it could also just be blemishes on the bean. Does that make it a poor illusion or a really good one?

  • Anonymous

    Also, the more I look at that picture, the more disgusting it looks. Pork and beans is really pretty nasty when you observe it this closely.

  • Anonymous

    Hmm…I think maybe I spot a face…that is if the face is laying on its side and the bean that is up and to the left of the bean above the copyright symbol is part of the lip and the really prominant bean that is on the right hand side of the pic halfway up is part of the nose and finally the bean to the left of the one that is in the upper right corner is the eye? Also pretty sure there is an ear towards the left more…mk I am hungry now ;p

  • Morgan

    I found the hidden face (I think). Very difficult illision, I had to focus on each individual bean for about 10 seconds until I found the right bean.

  • Morgan

    but the one I found still doesn’t jump out at you after you find it like the coffee bean one, so maybe it is the wrong one?

Interestingly enough, I found what appeared to be a human eye in this picture that was in the original also.

    I’ve been looking at the position of the beans and trying to make out a face but I can see so many possibilities.

    Is the face hidden in the position of the beans, or is it like the coffee bean illusion where an actual human face replaces the position of a bean?

    i think if you look at anything long enough, you will see something, even if it isn’t the same face as someone else. to me, this is like lookin at the clouds and making out things from them, they can be whatever the heck you want them to be.

    in any case, these illusions always seem to be pointless cause it isn’t like there is a real intricate solution to any of them.

    I see it. It’s VERY faint, almost looks like a shadow or a dirty bean. I can appreciate what this guy was trying to do, a kudos for the attempt, but the difficulty of this illusion isn’t in its creativity, it’s simply in its faintness. it’s hard to find because you can barely see it. that’s not clever or fun, it’s just feels like cheating. oh well.

    *SIGH* im going to be having nightmares of beans tonight…..

    anyway i think i found him.
    b/c i took the two pictures (the one posted earlier from istock) and the one from here and overlapped them in photoshop, changed the colors so i knew which one i was looking at, at the time, this “illusion” is so hard to see it almost makes it impossible

    but the only difference i found the pictures is right where the istock photo camera symbol is makes his eye, you have to kindof tilt your head to the left to see a proper face, the whole thing isnt there either which makes it even harder to see

    i still prefer the 4 ninjas, at least that one was obviously fake

  • Morgan

    I see at least 3 other beans that could be more easily convinced they are a face than the one that is supposadly it. this is a horrible illusion and unless you knew that particular bean had been altered you could never be convinced it is a face. coffee bean man was at least fun when you found it. This one doesn’t deserve to be on this site.

    Ok, Is it “Find the Baked Bean Man” Or “Find the baked bean, Man” Cause i see no actual face, just the reflection of someone taking the picture in the shiny bean juice, for lack of a better term. he’s right in the middle, i can even kinda see his arm where he’s holding the camera.

    Might I add, that every time I see the Illusion of the Day gadet on iGoogle, even though I have seen it for the last 2 days, I keep thinking the caption says, “naked bean man”. It is almost as disturbing as the face I see–which is the same as “anonymous” said in the very fist post. It looks like there’s an actual human face looking up from underneath the beans. Ew.

  • Khebab

    I think anyone who’s “spotting” the face with their naked eyes is hallucinating… I know it’s no fun, but I also got the original photo, used photoshop to compute the difference between the two pictures. And even then the face wasn’t visible. I still had to boost the brightness in order to get something which resembles a face to appear…

    Could you just change it already.
    It isn’t an illusion it’s just a pile of beans …like when Pat Robertson tried to show “death related items” in alcohol ads ( ice cubes that looked like sharks and the devil)…human imagination is very rich and needs little help but this thing has been here for days and it isn’t even interesting.

  • Tina

    Post #2 with the “Spoiler Alert” tells you exactly where it is…if you don’t want the anser stop now. It is a faint face in ONE bean just like the coffee one. Count down 3 beans from the top left…he’s next to the 3rd bean down. He’s tilted 45 degrees to the right, his eyes and mouth are dark shadows (very faint) and his nose is a white reflection. The first thing that grabbed me about this pic was what looked like a human hand in the white reflection on a bean in the middle of the screen bottom row…nobody has commented on that one though. Have Fun!

  • Anonymous

    “He’s not well hidden, rather just very hard to see.”

    Exactly, which makes it rather pathetic. Coffee bean man was difficult to find, but he was easy to see once you’d found him. That’s difficult to achieve. Anyone can put a really vague face on a baked bean.

    I’m just right here at work, staring at some tasty looking baked beans on my computer. The only bad part is that anytime anyone passes by asking me what am I doing staring at some baked beans for a long while.

    What is the answer? I’m looking crazy here at work.

    I think I’m the baked bean man because I’m getting fried on this.

    I think the beans are waving at you because you are the one baked!

    I see him, his arms are made out of beans so are his legs and head.

    The only face I see is a small face reflecting in the sauce just above the bean that lies just above the end of the copyright name on the picture.

    Lots of people here found it- this one i found helpful, but it was in Spanish- Anyway here is the translation of “Gabriel”‘s answer.

    TRANSLATION: “there is a species of face in the center, to izq… but it is not compared with the other, that was the face of the man… I am going to continue looking for equal.”

    Thought that may help.

    Look in the exact middle. Now look in the middle bottom. Now go up one bean, and 1-2 beans to the left. See it?

  • Sally

    The man face is there. It’s down at the bottom. It’s really small and it’s almost under the bean. From the left count five beans over. Very cool almost didn’t see it.

    Come on it’s a reflection of a man in the beans upper left corner look outside the box and you can usually see what you are looking for,

  • Anonymous

    Spoiler!: the eyes are at the top left corner two beans down and one bean right. The eyes are in between a very small bean and the nose is just under. The overall face is like a guy with an open mouth.

  • Lebamom

    Not to be mean, but, why is it the third day in a row of baked/naked bean man..?

  • Anonymous

    Found it!!

    1) Take a look of this pic:

    2) Find the face faded over the center bean on the IV cuadrant (upper, left)

    3) Other way to locate the bean is starting from the upper left corner, go down until the first bean; the go right to the third bean. That´s the one with a right-tilted face. A shine is over the nose.

  • Anonymous

    okay, bottom left corner
    go up to the second bean then over three beans. It’s a “reflection” of a guy in the sauce.

    Blue t-shirt, short brown hair.

    It’s an actual person…not the shape of a face IN the beans.

  • Joy Chavez

    Not clever at all. I liked the coffee beans one, and the Hidden Tiger was just awesome. Can we move on now? I’m tired of baked beans on my Google page.

    It’s only your imagination. There is no perfect face there, even partly hidden. Imperfect faces, there are many. Unless you have a specific challenge here, I feel this is a waste of time.

    I think you are all looking in the wrong place. You are all looking for a face made out of beans.
    If you look way down the bottom…half way accross…one bean up…just to the left of that bean there is a tiny image of a real man submerged in the sauce. His head and shoulders are visible. He is very small. Anyone see him??

    I don’t fink it is in the top left corner. It is just texture of bean.

    I see faint faces on almost all the beans, the bean man is the one taking the picture. The flash from the camera reflects off the bean juice and acts like tiny mirrors.

  • Karen

    BOTTOM RIGHT count in 3 beans from the edge (along the bottom)To the left of the triangular patch of reflected light I see 3 faces. The mouth of one of the faces runs parallel to the left side of the triangular light patch (turn your head 45 degrees toward your left shoulder to see it more clearly) and looks slightly transparent. The 2nd is just eyes and a nose (with possibly a shoulder)but is opaque with dark eyes and is connected to the first face diagonally upwards and on the left. The 3rd is above the bottom right hand bean and is touching the side of the picture, although this one does look a little distorted – maybe I’ve just BEAN looking at it for too long (!)

    Without trying to blame someone:
    This is the worst illusion I’ve ever seen!
    Nothing amazing behind it – after half an hour staring I’m very disappointed.
    I photoshoped the picture and even after relighting it the face is not visible. After getting the source picture from and substracting the two images some you can see some strange colors over the bean, described by you all. The colors seen there are different from the colors that form by the substraction of an original and an compressed image.
    Boooorign ^^. I hate the fact that I have spend so much time on that -.- .

    Top left corner

  • shadow sight

    start at the top left bean, and move south-east three beans. there’ll be a shiny thing for a nose and a black thing on ethier side for an eye.

    I am Sure that there is at least 4 faint faces…look again…

    oh i see the one bean everyones talking about near top left, but before that i saw a face of several beans with that one as its left eye (it has lopsided eyes, a huge fat cheek, and fat lips)

    i also see a single been kinda like the one everyone is talking about… its in the bottom left and its upside down… looks like he is blindfolded

    the coffee one was so much easier

  • Spencer Whalen

    Although theirs loads of faint faces that I think are just beans the best one I could find is go to the centre bottom bean, go up a bean, and at the bottom of that bean appears to be a little face looking up at you!
    Bit like in a mirror!

    That’s the best I can do!

  • Anonymous

    I think you guys are wrong, look in th bottom right corner, not at the beans but the white glare, it looks like a freaky face to me!

  • Ca

    I think I found it;
    The bean in the bottom left corner, has what looks like a face on the right side of the bean. Comparing the light on that reflection with the light on the other reflections it’s not the same shine to it. And since there actually is another bean laying against it there shouldn’t be a reflection at all.

    But I have to say, with some imagenation there could be a face in serveral different places.

  • ash

    i found it! it takes up almost the whole thing its to do with the way the light shines on it. its head is tilting to the sky slightly. the big dark patch…

    You guyz r all getting it wrong. I found it and it is confirmed.Its very thin.its in the center bottom part of picture. The shining part is his nose

    I feel so silly. My four year old son found the face and showed it to me after I sat here examining each and every bean over and over. He came over to see what I was looking at. I asked him if he saw a face in the beans. It took him about 10 seconds.

    I found it. Clicked on the jpg itself to open in a new window then used ctrl-+ on my keyboard to enlarge the photo. Once I got it pretty big it was obvious. I made a screen capture, I will email it in, and maybe the post can be updated with it.

      Dear Jeniffar,

      I recently came accross this website and going through the illusions – some of which are undoubtedly, brillinat.

      Regarding this “Baked Bean man”,I see you promised to send the screen shot which may help in identifying the man. Will you please send it to me? I could not see the face.

    it is something 1/5 from left and 1/4 from top. Looks like a head right inside a bean.

  • orangeoz

    i think its the 3rd bean from the left and the 4th bean from the top, it’s just his face…

  • Hars

    i can see it clearly..its all over the creen from top to bottom and in middle if assuming from right to left..but i cant explain the position..sorry..but i can see him ;)

  • Chris

    I see it, it starts with the bean in the bottom left hand corner and goes around to the top and curves back down in a face outline.

  • A:)

    I only see this little guy in a light blue tshirt waving.i think that it. he is a the middle at the top. keep going down until you see a little slightly blue shape. (it will help to enlarge it)

  • Anonymous

    I did see the man in the t-shirt, but I also saw two other possible faces. If you zoom in on the picture and go to the very top left corner, then go over to the first bean, and down 4 or 5 beans, there is a bubble that looks like an eye, and something beneath the bean that looks like a forehead. The next is near the cymru66, over to the first bean, then up a little. There is a shiny spot that looks like a sad Jason face.

  • jax

    im pretty sure all the glares on the beans are people.

  • Keisha Winn

    If you look very closely it somewhat resembles Dr. Phil.

  • Tlc

    Top left corner, count the two down and the third one from the left (positioned “/”). I am sure. If you check the creator’s site ( you can see the picture of the face he used, which somewhat resembles the transparent face

  • Dave

    See it but it’s not that good. Draw a line from the left top to the bottom right. Following that line it’s the third bean from the top left. A reflection on that bean somewhat obscures his face.

  • 111

    woah! it isn’t any of the beans and just a face in between.

  • james pecker

    botton center left you can see the eye and sorta face of what looks like a barbie dolls head

  • MSSTLove

    found it but it wasnt that easy

  • David

    Took another look at this and spotted it almost immediately!? Bottom left – the lowest first whole bean from the left.

  • Sean

    is this some kinda joke??

  • Phil

    The shiny area to the bottom right. It’s a guy lying on his back as if dead, with his head tilted back and his arms outstretched as if lying in ‘water’ splayed over some ‘rocks’.

    I saw a face with a white shirt.

    3 beans at the very bottom that are touching in the middle of picture… over the first bean of the three on the left.. Is a a bean with a half face peaking out from under it… I can’t find any of the other stuff people have posted about… This one is tough.. Showing my son when hr gets home… He can see a fly a mile away…LoL Will re-post if he finds something else..

  • T

    His face is in a bean. He is looking through the translucent skin of the bean.

  • Saeed Yaqoob

    I think its from top left third horizontally and forth vertically if u count the small bean too.. the face is not so clear, but i think that is the one.

  • Aurora

    If you look half way up the page above the letter ‘m’ in ‘’ you’ll see a face in the bean.

  • E

    at the bottom, there are 2 beans that are really close(legs), then, there are 2 halves of abean that are touching(body) then above is the head, then arms are visible once you see the structure…………………..i think that is right…….’:/

    • Paul

      Lmao, ur supposed to see a face. Thats something u want to happen, putting beans together to create a whole body. The description says u see a face. The face is on a little bean that is partially under the sauce. On the bottom right u will see 4 beans grouped together. To the left of the top bean, it is the little bean with a partial glare on it

    I’m not sure, but I see two circles of beans that would be eyes, a straight vertical line i the center going down that would be a nose, and a curve of beans that would be a smile. That’s the only thing I can see here lol.

  • Cesar Perez

    Clear face: Top left you will see the first 2 beans in a diagonal shape = to / the forward slash is the direction of those 2 beans.

    Count starting from that bottom bean of the same 2 and it is the 3rd bean that looks like a pic from an ultra sound. Is very simple.

    bean layout looks like this /_

  • Jemima duck

    I find it funny how we all are looking at a computer screen looking at a load of beans. THERE ARE LOADS OF FACES IN THERE!!! Gosh. Lol. I’m just thinking about, like, how we have a faces ipad to the screen…and someone walks in. “What are you doing?” Your mum says. “Looking for a face in the beans…..” You reply. “Oh….well…that’s normal.” She answers and slowly back out of your room. Awkward…..

    You can see a smiling face on the left side of the picture I posted. It’s just to the left of the Web address on the bottom of the page. It’s more of a stick figure face.
